I am the owner of Dylanson, LLC, a single member LLC that is
My name is***** am the owner of Dylanson, LLC, a single member LLC that is drafting a contract for the personal services of an individual who has his own single member LLC. The contract begins as such: ""Dylanson, LLC (hereinafter referred to as “The Dylanson Agency”) and Direct Response Professional (hereinafter referred to as “DRP”) hereby enter into this Agreement for the personal services of Marc Osgood as Writer of The Back Industrial Video (hereinafter referred to as the “Industrial Video”), produced for The Joint Corp., the Dylanson Agency's client (hereinafter referred to as “Client”).""My question surrounds the proceeding language that states the Independent Contractor Status. Specific to this language, should I call out the individual by name or the name of his LLC. Here's an example of one of those clauses: ""The Dylanson Agency will not: withhold FICA (Social Security and Medicare taxes) from DRP payments or make FICA payments on behalf of DRP, make state or federal unemployment compensation contributions on behalf of DRP, or withhold state or federal income tax from DRP payments.""Should I state this classification with regards ***** ***** company I am hiring, or should I list the name of the specific individual who will be personally doing the work?
I live in the state of, and I have been a freelance music
I live in the state of Washington, and I have been a freelance music composer for over 20 years. In that whole time, I have never been asked from a company that hired me as a contractor to provide proof that I have workers comp insurance. I have never needed it or been asked about it.I recently finished a job as a contractor for a company in Florida. The job was successful, I wrote music for them from my studio in Washington. Now, like 4 months later, they are asking me to send proof of workers comp insurance. I don't have any! I don't even know what it is really. I have never been asked about it from over 50 companies I have worked for. So what should I do? Again, I am simply a freelance music composer. I sit in a studio at a computer at my house and write music.
I agreed to go into business with a company to market a
I agreed to go into business with a company to market a website selling mattresses. I wrote him a check for $18,000 for half the web-site. We agreed in verbal to a contract but he has not signed the contract yet. He came in and we actually started selling to test the waters and see how it may go. We agreed to split everything 50/50. He ended up talking a handful of my telemarketers to go and set up there own call center and basically broke our agreement. He is using the web-site which we agreed we both owned. He had paid me my share up until a couple of weeks ago from the test sales. He kept telling me they had not been selling anything for the last three weeks. We would transfers calls to his store and they would sell. We found it odd that they were not making sales. Basically since I have the canceled check for half of the web-site that I paid him and deposit from where he paid me half of sales do I have a case to sue him and get my money back with damages as he stole my employees
BBVA Compas Bank gave me higher than their advertised CD
BBVA Compas Bank gave me higher than their advertised CD interest rate. They also waived for me early withdraw penalty. They gave me these in writing. They kept their words for one term. But then at the time of maturity, they automatically renewed my CDs at a much lower rate without informing me. When I withdrew 2 of my 4 CDs they withdrew the higher rate CDs and kept the lower rate CDs active. I found these out later.It is true that Banks, generally do automatic renewal of the CDs to whatever the rate is at that time. But in my case since they gave me special rate and special term, treating my account as special case. Therefore, I claimed that BBVA should have gotten my written permission for the renewal of the CDs to a lower rate. I had the opportunity to get the higher rate at CaptialOne bank had I known that my CDs are being renewed automatically at a much lower rate. I have documents to prove these. I did not know that they renewed my CDs at lower rate.But BBVA is saying, they do not need my written permission to renew the CDs. My argument: BBVA can't treat my my CDs as their generic way of handling CDs (automatic renewal) because they already broke the norm and agreed to gave me special rate and special term. Therefore, their generic process is null and void.Do I have a case?
