I was red as as an adult RN home health company in CO. I

I was hired as as an adult RN for a home health company in CO. I received a $3000 sign-on bonus for agreeing to see at least 25 patients a week for $45 a visit for the next 3 years. This company, however, only had 2-3 adult patients admitted for home care nursing at any time, so I was never able to make more than 5 visits a week. After several months, the company decided they would no longer have an adult division. Because I am not qualified to care for pediatric patients, I resigned. Now the company is demanding I pay the bonus back. Am I responsible for the payment?

I have a question. We are developing a software customer and

Hello,I have a question. We are developing a software for a customer and he did not pay us for months. I want to know if can we give him the version he was paying for? I mean we roll back for the exact date he paid us last time. He was promising us to be paid and it never happened. He only did it so we get to this point where (he thinks) we just give him as it is being upset on him. The software has no registered intellectual property. In the contract we have signed it says that if he is exciding the work we will give him a different quotation. He only want to take advantage on us.Best regards

When I sold my preschool business 3 years ago, there was a

When I sold my preschool business 3 years ago, there was a non compete clause in the contract I signed. It stipulated a 10 mile radius from the current location of the school. It did NOT define a period of time. I have been offered a Director position at a brand new school (direct competition to my old business) and it is 7 miles from the preschool. I would argue that it has been 3 years, plenty of time for one to establish and brand their business in this industry, and that I need to make a living. How enforceable is the non compete because it did not have a time limit? Can I do anything proactively to ensure the new owner does not come after me legally? Thanks.

Last week I signed a contract with a dog trainer. I paid him $2,000.00 at the time of our meeting for a package of training sessions, and we had a training session that morning. That 1 session cost $150.00, it was a private session. We made an appointment for 7/19/16 at 10:00am, he was a no show, we made a text contact a few hours later and rescheduled for 7/20/16 a 11:00am, he was a no show again. I used this trainer last year and he did the same thing to me. We worked things out and I completed my training sessions. I am not happy that he is already ignoring me. I want to stop it now. I feel he has breached the contract. Is it too soon to file a small claims against him.

I'm reading an employment agreement and I'm concerned about

I'm reading an employment agreement and I'm concerned about some language in the agreement. It states:"For a period of two (2) years after termination of my employment for any reason:1. I will provide any prospective employer or other entity to which I consider rendering service, prior to accepting employment orrendering such service, with a copy of this Employee Agreement."This seems very strict and atypical and am looking for some advice as to whether I should accept these terms or strike them and with what cause I should answer with.
