Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi, I will be happy to assist you, and it is my goal to make you a very satisfied customer! This may take a few minutes, so thanks for your patience.
I'm sorry to hear that you're having to deal with this. I'm providing you with a link to an article that will go through the law that protects you in the situation that you're facing.
Basically, what the attorney is going to want to know first is what were your expectations. Your expectations will have been based on factors such as whether this was an existing business or whether you and your father started it together.
Other factors might also be how long you worked there before you became ill. Whether you could still work there given your current health, your current expectations, etc.
Essentially, with a close corporation, the shareholders owe the same duties of care and loyalty to each other that partners in a partnership owe to each other. You can't use majority control to squeeze out the other shareholder that has a legitimate expectation of employment and daily management, activity, etc. in the corporation.
Take a look at the article at the link provided and I think you'll be able to organize your facts and thoughts in a way that will be meaningful to your attorney because your whole case will be based on how facts you provide relate to the law discussed in that article.
