Would a good workaround solution involve having sales reps that are independent contractors represent the company? Thank you.
Let me get this straight: You are starting a business which will involve sales representatives in 25 different states, but you are asking questions anonymously on a general legal information website? If you are doing business at such a volume, you owe it to yourself to pay counsel for legal advice you can rely on!See question

Your reference to an "RCMP officer" tells me you are not writing from the unincorporated community in Pike County, Kentucky called "Canada," but rather from the northernmost nation on the North American continent.
Avvo is a site on which people may obtain general legal information about the state and federal law of the United States. Perhaps some analogous site serves Canadians with respect to Canadian federal or provincial law.See question
Is there any form of legal action I can take against him for providing alcohol to a minor and essentially "rape"?
Building on Mr. Kahn's response, I would bring to your attention the legal principle called "standing." The relationship boyfriend-girlfriend is not one which the law protects, meaning that a boyfriend may not bring a civil case against someone for having sexual contact with his girlfriend. If your girlfriend has been the victim of a crime, she may report that crime to the police.See question

Don't do it yourself. Hire an experienced lawyer who does real estate transactions. You have a house and $50,000 in payments at stake.See question
I've recently decided to begin seeing a psychologist to discuss my father. Prior to any of this, I had called my insurance company and was advised that despite my being on my father's health plan, that he would not be able to see any information i...
I think it may be a HIPAA violation. There's no private right of action for a HIPAA violation, meaning, you cannot sue the provider for violating HIPAA. However, a person aggrieved by a covered entity's violation of HIPAA may file a claim with the Office of Civil Rights at the United States Department of Health and Human Services. That agency has the power to fine HIPAA violators, but none of the fines come back to the pockets of the persons whose rights were violated.
Good luck.See question
if i determine that the jurisdiction of a case i want to file a complaint about is in another state...a state far away.....how much of the litigation can be done thru pleadings? i mean if i need to file a suit in ohio for instance because that is ...
It's hard to give a general answer. A party whose testimony is necessary to establish one or more elements of his or her claim is going to have to appear in the jurisdiction to present that testimony at trial. Defense counsel in a case of some value will probably want to take the plaintiff's deposition, and this is likely to require travel to the forum state, although it may not apply in the case of a small claims case. It is rare that a small claims action is procedurally complicated: Most often the plaintiff files a complaint, it is served on the opponent under the rules, the opponent files an answer (although the opponent may decide to file a motion, or may counterclaim), the parties exchange discovery, and the matter is tried. The typical small claims case will not usually require the parties' appearance except at trial.
This may or may not apply to your case however. I'm not licensed in New Jersey so don't take what I say here as legal advice. Maybe things are different in New Jersey so what I wrote above won't apply. If you need advice you can rely on, consult New Jersey counsel in person. I practice in Vermont ONLY.See question
One good friend of mine had given notice to leave his job. However his employer asked him to leave the company after he gave his notice. Is it legal to ask an employee to leave the same day after he has given a notice without completing his notic...
I know of no general principle of law which impedes an employer from immediately discharging an at-will employee who has given notice that he is resigning effective on some date in the future. Contactual provisions may govern where a contract exists.See question
