Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?
Do these sentences make sense, and are they grammatically correct:
a) "Richard works ON HIS OWN ACCOUNT."
(Note: By this, I mean that Richard is his own boss.)
b) "When you are employed BY THIRD PARTIES, you are tied town to timetables."
(Note: By 'third parties', I mean when you work for somene, and particularly when you also have a place of work.)

a) this does make sense, and it is grammatically correct, but its meaning would be clearer if it were worded like this: Richard works for himself.
b) is quite correct.

a. Richard is self-employed / Richard is an independent contractor / Richard works free-lance.
b. When you are an employee, you must work on the timetable set by your employer.
