My employer has just sold his business,(he is a dentist), he

My employer has just sold his business,(he is a dentist), he tells us that this is to be a merger and that the buyer did not want our employer to tell us because the buyer wants to keep everything the same with all of us employees still working there, so that the patients won't leave. My boss is implying that we all still have jobs there but he doesn't know how we will be compensated, or what hours we will be working, etc. He, our boss, will still be working there for a few more months, he says. My Bosses wife and our business management company are all telling us employees that we need to sit down with our boss and get answers to some questions. He just keeps telling us he doesn't know whats going to happen. The escrow on the sale is supposed to close on August 19th and the new company takes over on that following monday. We, employees, are wondering what kind of questions we should be asking and what kind of rights do we have with this.

My son-in-law is a computer engineer who works from home,

My son-in-law is a computer engineer who works from home, and troubleshoots problemsthat his company's clients needs help solving when they call in to him.He is paid a salary by his employer and is definitely NOT in business for himself.Last year, his employer changed his status from an employee to an independent contractor.To me, that was solely in the interest (to save different costs that my son-in-law would now have to pay) of the employer and was NOT allowed by law (he lives and works in New York). Is this wrong on the part of the employer? Also, what taxes exactly would my son-in-law be obligated to pay that was being paid by the employer? Thank you.

I'm a Texas employer in the Software consulting

I'm a Texas employer in the Software consulting industry. In our industry, 3 types of jobs are offered to consultants working 40 hours/week - full time with benefits, W2-contract and 1099. The W2 contract employment means consultants are hired for 40 hours/week for say 3 months, and paid an hourly compensation without benefits. The employer withholds all payroll taxes for them. This is preferred by consultants over 1099 as they do not have to do complex tax filings on their own. I'd like to confirm that the W2-contract arrangement is legal.

My car was booted and and ticketed by my university with no

My car was booted and and ticketed by my university with no warning nor explanation when I was legally parked.Further details: I have been an employee of this university since August 2015. Beginning in January 2016, I also became enrolled as a student. My employment status and position did not change. In April 2016, received an email from university transportation services stating that since I was enrolled as a student, they could no longer deduct parking payments from my paycheck, and so I must return my employee parking permit. Again, I was working at the same job, paid the same salary, had the same supervisor, etc. - the only difference was that I began attending classes. I responded to transportation services via email stating that I would be glad to pay the parking fees directly to the office since they could not deduct them from my paycheck. Additionally, transportation shut off my employee bus pass without warning. I have not heard from them since this response. I was never sent any university policy regarding changes in my transportation services due to the "change" in employment status. It seems that student status supersedes employment status, but the communication regarding this change in their system has been extremely limited. The change was not made until April 2016, and I was enrolled as a student in January 2016. I would be happy to answer questions about details if necessary.
