I signed an independent contractor agreement and and so did the business I was doing work for. The customer has yet to pay me and the date on the contract has already past. Is there something that I can do to make them pay me?
I work in a coal mine and when we move our long-wall section our company changes our three days a week, 12 hours per day schedule, to a six days a week, nine hours per day schedule. After we fall behind their unrealistic schedule they tell us that it's mandatory to work seven days straight for nine hours per day until the move is complete--which usually takes between 15 to 30 days. Do we have any rights against this, or do we just have to deal with it?
I will be providing a maid service as an independent contractor and will start with one or two maids but I don't know how bonding works. Do I get one for the company, or one for each maid/contractor? Also where, and how do I get this?
