ok. thank you

Yes, you can hold the partner liable. You should determine the amounts it has cost you, the partner's share, and then make demand. If partner refuses, then you can have a lawyer send a demand letter, and if needed sue in court to get a judgment or settlement for the amount owing!

A lawyer letter from a local lawyer can be effective in several ways. It can avoid costly litigation and help bring about a settlement. It also helps organize the claim and if it goes to court shows the judge you tried in good faith to resolve it!Please select the 5 star (*****) rating on your page for the answer. That’s how I get paid by the site. Much appreciated!

this is for construction work in california. We are going up north for a job. DO I have to pay them drive time up to the job and if I do at their reg rate or minimum wage? Also What is the per-diem rate I need to pay for room and board?
thank you

You should pay drive time.

You should pay at agreed rate, and not less than min wage.

Room and board to the extent need should be subject to receipt of receipts and something sides can agree on fixed rate.
