I am looking to start a sports handicapping business. For a fee, customers can purchase a subscription and receive a report with the sports picks I believe have the best value against the Vegas odds. I will not be placing wagers for my customers, running any type of fund, or anything aside from... View More
In Nevada, to establish a sports handicapping LLC, you'd generally follow steps like selecting a unique LLC name, appointing a registered agent, and filing Articles of Organization with the state. For the NAICS code, consider "711510 - Independent Artists, Writers, and Performers"....View More
In Nevada, businesses often use releases or waivers to protect themselves from potential future claims or lawsuits. It's not uncommon for a business to request a customer to sign a release of claims when processing a refund, especially if there's a potential for a dispute or claim. By...View More
n Nevada, if you are in the middle of a fixed-term lease (e.g., a 12-month lease), your landlord cannot increase the rent or any fees unless it's specifically stipulated in the lease agreement. However, once the lease term ends and if you move to a month-to-month tenancy or sign a new lease,...View More
In general, advertisements are considered invitations to make an offer, not binding contracts themselves. However, there are exceptions and legal principles to consider. In Nevada, if the ad includes the VIN number and all the car details, it might be seen as a specific offer rather than a mere...View More
If I pay them either $13.25 per hour or $15 per hour. Am I required to pay them overtime of $19 per Hour and $22 per hour. Over 40 hours. My company is based in Nevada. I only have 1 employee and myself.
Generally yes. Federal law requires that hourly-paid employees be paid overtime, at a rate of one-and-one-half times their regular rate of pay, for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek. If your business does less than $500,000 gross in business per year, however, you may be exempt from federal...View More
I have a restaurant and I will be serving alcohol soon. I understand that servers or anyone who will be handling the liquor (like bartenders) should be of legal age. How about non-servers like bussers, kitchen staff, and chefs? Do they need to be of legal age? Or can they be below 21 as long as... View More
Typical lawyer answer: IT DEPENDS. You said the "bussers, kitchen staff and chefs" Are they handling alcohol in the performance of their duties- handling alcohol to be served to customers, not used in food preparation? Many dishes call for alcohol to be added: Bananas Foster, Cherries...View More
I have been working at my company for over 6 months and now they are trying to cut my pay in half, and even more than that and expecting me to take on more responsibility. And say I have till Monday to sign it or I cant come back to work. Is this legal? Can they do this with no prior notice???
Employees are either “at will” or they have a contract. At will employees can quit when they want and the company can fire or layoff an employee when it wants, so long as the termination isn’t due to discrimination, retaliation or another illegal reason. It sounds like you are an employee...View More
A Nevada attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. I'm sorry for your accident and injuries. At this point, you could reach out to attorneys in your area to discuss in further detail. Most attorneys who handle injury cases offer free initial consults. Good luck
A Nevada attorney could assist best, but your question remains open for a month.

There's a...View More
I have worked as a remote independent contractor recruiter working in Texas for a staffing agency located in Las Vegas, Nevada. My compensation was not paid completely as agreed in the contract and the agency made me work other job that was not described in the contract. I was told by my other... View More
Sometimes these contracts have a clause that determines the state in which an action may be brought for a breach. I would review your contract and see which state you would need to bring action in, then start reaching out to employment law attorneys in that state for a consultation and to discuss...View More
Good question. Usually, a business partner can't change your ownership percentage in a partnership or company without your permission or unless you have given the partner some sort of right to do so. There are tax implications associated with that change (especially if you are in a...View More

The last time I looked, the unauthorized use of any of the financial terms you asked about, as well as many other banking, financial and investment terms, is prohibited in every state of the United States.

I have attempted to call customers and contact customers, property varies having sat for 60 days to over a year. It's currently taking up space that we could be using for other purpose and most customers do not provide any address, only a phone number and name as we're a small town shop.
A Nevada attorney would really need to address your concerns because the solution might involve state or city laws governing bailments. But your question remains open for two weeks. Although this is frustrating for you and people should be more considerate about your limited space, you could look...View More

I think that the assignment of all IP rights forever has to do with assigning all the rights that you produce for the company while you are engaged in an assignment for them. It does not extend to IP rights that you generate during your lifetime after the engagement ended.
