A federal contractor believes another contractor poses a threat to them winning an upcoming bid. As a preemptive strategy they offer to share revenue with the other contractor by giving them positions (workers) on the new contract in exchange for their agreement not to bid. Is this legal?

No, offering to share revenue or profits with another contractor in exchange for their agreement not to bid on a federal contract is generally not legal. Such an arrangement would likely be considered a violation of federal procurement laws and regulations, including the Anti-Kickback Act and the... Read more »

I don't even know what you're trying to ask. If you were charged with driving without a license you can request a court appointed lawyer at your hearing or hire someone. Usually it helps to get properly licensed. Good luck.

It should not, depending on the crime for which you were convicted. Felonious assault or crimes of a sexual nature could be the exception. Check with an immigration attorney.

Are they liable for me slipping and falling? They had to now it was wet substance on floor, because they didn't they wouldn't had put wet floor signs after it happened
answered on Oct 26, 2017
They obviously knew it was wet afterwards because you fell on it. It does not logically follow that they knew until after. I assume you reported it to them. Putting signs up afterwards was necessary to prevent any additional falls and does not in any way prove negligence.
