Yes. A business can make policies as long as they don’t violate the law, and it can change and interpret that policy whenever and however they want. They can even be arbitrary in enforcing their own policy as long as they comply with applicable law. For example, they can’t illegally...View More
It depends. Because you tagged this question with both "business" and "employment," I'm assuming that the profit-sharing contract you are asking about is a contract with an employee of the nonprofit organization. If so, you are dealing with a question involving a topic that...View More
I run a LLC and we are currently in the process of booking a musical entertainer on one of there tour stops in the US. They are from Canada and have asked us to sign two separate contracts for two separate tour dates. They say they need both for visa reasons but both state that we would have to... View More
You need to have a clear contract with them for immigration purposes. The contract has to be an agreement between you and them. If you don't like the terms you should say so and renegotiate. When entertainers apply for the P visa, which allows them to come to the USA to perform, they must show...View More
I am a PhD student going to graduate soon and thinking to start my own business in my field. I am currently holding F1 student visa but trying to apply for green card through National Interest Waiver (NIW). I have a few questions and your answers are very appreciated.

I have releases/legal docs for both LPCC and hands-on healer. Concerned if there is a liability with the State Board, Scope of Practice, Insurance Companies, asking and quoting/sharing hand-on healing results and testimonials.

Need to see how your state treats such things-with all the crystal therapy etc should be some statement you can use stating that none of it is medically prove, that if they continue to have symptoms they should follow up...View More
It sounds ridiculous to me, but someone has told me that it's illegal to allow independant contractors (massage therapists in this case) to wear t-shirts with the logo of the company that has hired them. The t-shirts are worn at events voluntarily by the contractors to help advertise for the... View More

I was involved in an accident in which the third-party accepted liability. As the vehicle was only 4 months old, a diminished value claim was started. I hired a certified appraiser and received a very detail report stating the diminished value. I submitted this to the insurance company, however,... View More
