Over time there are likely to be two to three employees others would volunteers. The revenue model is via online sponsorships and ads as well as direct revenue from referrals to professionals.

Non-Profit start-up question. What is the fastest and least

Non-Profit start-up question. What is the fastest and least expensive way to begin a non-profit that involves the fewest number of people? I know usually there's a ' board,' etc. I want to start a small arts non-profit and then build it up from there to be able to apply for grants etc. eventually. It would be small to start, and potentially just myself or one or two others included. Is that possible with a very small group, not a big ' board' involved? I know there's a ' state-level' type of filing, and then something called 501-C ?)- but that's about all I know. Thanks.

I am a resident of California and have a question about the

Hello. I am a resident of California and have a question about the "Right to Rescind" law as it pertains to home improvement. My wife had a representative from 3 day blinds out to measure and give an estimate on new blinds for the Windows. I was sitting nearby for most of the interaction, including the point when the rep tried to "close" her and she said that she still needed to shop around and felt uncomfortable making such a large commitment without at least doing research. This was a good couple/few weeks ago. The part I missed, which she thought I heard, was when she allowed the rep to talk her into ordering the blinds. Of course, this included her signing that she read and agreed to the terms and conditions, which is where the 3 day right to rescind notice is stated. The rep didn't leave hard copy of a contract that day so, again, I didn't have cause to know a transaction took place. He did email a copy to my wife's personal email, but we do not in any way, share that email. The way the contract reads, it's appears as though 3 day blinds knows what they're doing in assuring customers are locked in once that 3 day right to rescind period passes. My question, based on some reading I've done, is shouldn't that contract need to have been signed by me as well? Or, at very least, a copy of the contract my wife signed sent to me? We are married though technically my name is ***** ***** the deed to the home (not sure if that would make a difference). Thanks so much!

I am on FMLA leave from my job and I was approved for FMLA

I am on FMLA leave from my job and I was approved for FMLA on April 14,2016 after suffering the rupture of three brain aneursyms. I had a second surgery on July 11, 2016 when my post operative evaluation revealed another aneurysm. The Employee Relation Specialist at my place of employment has been calling, emailing, and sending letters through US mail. She is pressuring me to set up a meeting with her to discuss any accommodations I may need. However, these phone calls and emails started in less than 10 days of my second brain surgery. She has provided me with six pages 11 open endedinteractive questionnaire she want my Neurosurgeon to complete, then wants me to meet with her and my immediate supervisor on Thursday, August 4, 2016 at 10:30a. My Neurologist says he will not complete the questionnaire at this time. It is to soon and he has not completed my post operative evaluation for my second brain surgery that was completed on July11th. I have not been given any medical release. The Human Resource Employee Relations Specialists says my first contracted day to return to work is August 8th, 2016 for the upcoming school year. She says she needs to know what accommodations I may need so she can have them ready when I return to school. The telephone calls began on July 18-19, 2016 when she wanted to know why I did not return to work on the projected date that was provided in April 2016 of June 6th. I told her that my contract ended June 3, 2016. I told her that my Neurologist had been sending updates and medical certifications to the Health insurance (USABLE short term disability office on a regular basis). I informed her that if she sent me a medical release consent form, I would sign and submit to my Neurologist, since she alleges she has not seen any of these and that USABLE and the Little Rock School District are two separate entities and do not share paperwork. But, the way this lady is going after me any all the allegations she is alleging, she has to have violated FMLA, ADA, and/or the school district's medical leave policy. She tells me that my FMLA was exhausted on May 31, 2016 when it was just approved on April 14, 2016 as Serious Health Condition. Then she says as of September 2, 2016 I will have an 18 days of FMLA left. I had a surgery on September 1, 2015 and was off on sick leave and unpaid sick leave until September 28, 2015. this surgery was unrelated to the clipping of the ruptured aneursyms. The Human Resource Employee Relations Specialist went back and counted those day as part of my approved FMLA of April 14, 2016. I am in a difficult position because my Neurologist tells me not to stress, get angry or have my systolic BP to rise above 150mm. Now, this lady is asking me to violate my Neurologist medical advice which may cause my Health Insurance to not pay if something happens. Also, there have been several employees in the school district this past year who when their FMLA was exhausted, they were told to resign or be terminated. My medical bills have reached over $500,000.00 and are growing.

Educator Esq. I want to know if there is a complaint I can

For Law educator Esq. Good day,I want to know if there is a complaint I can file regarding the new full fabricated page and tampering with evidence that I found? The plaintiff fabricated and recreated the invoice, bringing in entries word for word from other pages of the old invoice and those entries still on those pages where he took them. He prepared a new page that was not in the invoice before and prepared a balance. Then he added it to the first page of the old invoice and made the two pages October invoice with about $2000 false entries still on other part of the invoice where he took them. The page 2,of the old invoice, still showing number 2 was made the first page of the invoice he now called December invoice. What made this a clear evidence is that the invoice he gave to me before as one invoice without this full new page that I discovered was filed in the Superior court during the prejudgment trial. This new judge ignored the evidence just like they refused to let me argue the counterclaim that I first put the fraud issue. The original invoice was fabricated with meetings I never had with him and work that was never done for me. He put the invoice together quickly after I terminated his services and the invoice did not add up. During pre-trial I argued that he never gave me invoice while I was with the firm that he just fabricated that invoice. I presented that invoice as one exhibit during the pre-trial. During the trial he brought different invoices that they were given to me monthly. I knew the invoice was separated but I did not know that a full fabricated page was added with fraudulent entries. During the other trial, they omitted the fraud issue completely from my case. First, fact finder said he wasn't sure if I filed the counterclaim properly that he will let my attorney that I later hired know it's validity, he never did. I took the issue to appellate court, they never mentioned the counterclaim with fraud issue in their decision but talked about the counterclaim my attorney tried to fill after I hired him which was stricken because it was too late. But the one I filed as pro se which the Appelate court was made to understand was the issue on appeal was completely omitted from their decision. They claimed that the counterclaim was stricken that it does not violate my right to due process if the fact finder does not notify my attorney of it's validity. There is a big discrimination going on here or favoritism because the attorney doing this fraudulent activities has been in the area for long. Everybody is covering up the fraud issue. The word fraud is not even used in their decision.This judge's decision in the new appeal is saying my argument was already heard and already decided on appeal. I did not even know of this new full page until I was preparing for Court for the motions argument. I know appellate Court is going to side with her. My question is, is there a complaint that I can file, at least I now have a physical evidence, not me just saying that I did not have meetings with him, that work was not done for me or the invoice wasn't given to me monthly. Is there a complaint I can file and have Jury listen to me on this new evidence because Connecticut law says that the discovering of Fraud can be attacked at any time. This is so unfair. (It is me again the regular with second appeal)
