Nondisclosure Agreement

California

Asked on Oct 5, 2022

Are non disclosure agreements enforceable?

I keep getting asked to sign NDAs and I'm not sure how enforceable they are?

Christopher M.

Answered Oct 7, 2022

So non-disclosure agreements will typically be enforceable for a reasonable time depending on the content of the information contained in the NDA. It will really depend on the specifics of the NDA and the information released to you. Most NDAs do allow you to discuss the matters with counsel so if you are concerned about any specific agreement it would probably be best to have them reviewed by an attorney.

Employment Agreement

Oklahoma

Asked on Mar 3, 2023

Are 1099 employees responsible for there own break time and lunch time?

The job im at I am a 1099 employee but they tell us when to get here when our breaks are when our lunch is and when we leave. Doesn't that technically mean that we are W2 workers?

Jonathan K.

Answered Mar 7, 2023

First of all, there is no such thing as a 1099 employee. You are either an independent contractor or an employee. Second, yes, if you are being told when to take a break or have lunch, then you are probably an employee and not an independent contractor.

Non-Competition Agreement

Maine

Asked on Jul 25, 2022

Can an consultant to a company be asked to sign a Non-Compete Agreement when that company is being acquired by another company.

My husband is a consultant for a company that is being acquired by another company. The acquiring company no longer needs his services. The acquiring company is asking my husband to sign a non-compete for nothing in return. They stated that he is not an employee of the company being acquired, so financial consideration is not on the table. The acquiring company is in Maryland. The company being acquired is in Maine. Is this legal?

Jane C.

Answered Aug 12, 2022

I suggest you have an attorney review the terms of the non-compete.

Business Contract

Connecticut

Asked on Mar 28, 2022

Would creating an investment LLC benefit me?

I am an active day trader (and may invest in real estate this year) so, would setting up an "investment LLC" be a benefit for me and help me lower my tax obligation when taking monthly profits as part of my "salary"? Should I include my wife as an employee and pay her as an expense? And, my sons, to a lesser degree? Would Capital gains be calculated differently if I just invested as an individual? Is an LLC the best corporate type of filing? Thank you, Peter F.

Jane C.

Answered Apr 29, 2022

I suggest you consult with an attorney and speak to your accountant as to how to best structure the set up.

Quick, user friendly and one of the better ways I've come across to get ahold of lawyers willing to take new clients.

View Trustpilot Review

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
