Business law advice: Take employee wage garnishments seriously

Most business owners fear the prospect of employee wage garnishments. For the uninitiated, it seems like a very complicated process that will rob you of the time and energy you need to operate your business.

Prevent Disputes By Creating A Partnership Agreement

Forming a business partnership instead of a sole proprietorship can have many benefits, including sharing the workload and the responsibilities of the business. But sharing a business with someone can also bring challenges, especially if roles, responsibilities and liabilities are not made clear from the start. To prevent such disagreements from derailing your business venture, it's important to create a partnership agreement. These agreements create clarity and provide a framework for the partners in a business, and can help to ward off conflicts before they arise.

When two or more people decide to start a business together, they do so with only the best intentions. Usually, these intentions include making a commitment to put the business first on a long-term basis and agreeing to work together for the good of the company. In this way, business formation is much like a marriage. Also like a marriage, breaking the business up is often quite complicated.
