I pay my employees' regular salary once a month. But when their sales commission comes in, can I wait and pay that to them along with regular payroll at the beginning of the following month or do I need to cut them a check right away?
I have a two-year lease and there was a flood in the building making it unusable. The landlord is promising to repair the extensive damage but he is waiting for the insurance company to give him money. How long am I obligated to wait? It has already affected my business.
I'm a guarantor on the company credit line? We are the only guarantors on the credit line. There are two other minority shareholders, one was laid off nine months ago but kept his shares, and the other is still working at the company.
I have an idea for a name for my new cupcake shop in Michigan, but after a little research I realized the name I'm considering is taken by a grocery store in California. Is it legal for me to use the same name? Are there copyright issues with this?
We founded this company three years ago. We trademarked our logo and name as well as registered a domain name. My partner now wants out of the business and is willing to waive all financial rights--except the domain and trademark. Should I ever sell the company and/or trademark, he wants to claim part of the price.
