  1. Is it OK for me, a Business owner to go into a client location and take back equipment that I did not get fully paid for?

    I agree with my colleague--and the fact that you took "some" portable items may present additional legal problems for you. If your company is regularly in the business of selling equipment, I recommend associating yourself with a local small-business law firm for dealing with routine matters such as this in the future--and because his attorneys are now involved, I definitely recommend consulting with an attorney to represent your interests to help resolve the issue of you taking the portable...

    Hydrocodone could be detected by the urinalysis, and the prosecutor may still bring charges if the hydrocodone, or any other intoxicants in your system, impaired your driving. You should consult with a criminal law attorney that handles DUI and is familiar with attacking a urinalysis.

  3. How can a minority shrehlder of a closely held corp effect the dismissal of employed treasurer/director for breach of fiduciary

    A member of the Board of Director has a fiduciary obligation to the corporation. If a member of the Board of Directors is violating their fiduciary duty, and the Board has failed to cure, you have the ability to file a shareholder action. My suggestion is to contact a business law attorney in your area to fully advise you of rights and liabilities as a shareholder.

    To avoid initially incurring court costs, you should ask that the attorney to draft a demand letter to the distributor to see if this matter can be resolved out of court. If the distributor ignores the demand, the next logical step is to file a lawsuit and attempt to collect on a potential judgment. You should speak with a business attorney on this matter.

  6. Does handling the mail for a motel qualify as interstate commerce?

    Unfortunately, your question does not provide enough facts to adequately answer. Merely "handling" the mail in and of itself likely does not qualify as interstate commerce. But does this mean that you are opening the mail and reading it, or merely collecting the mail at the front door and internally distributing unopened mail? Are you your own business? Are you being paid to handle the mail? Handling the mail also has different implications when speaking in context of a criminal matter...

    I agree with my colleagues. As with most start-ups that I have worked with, the initial owner understands that they need to outsource their work. Without the proper legal protections, however, the proprietary information revealed in the process of outsourcing can be detrimental to a company with a novel concept or unique idea. One way to protect yourself is through a clearly written Independent Contractor/Non-Disclosure agreement. My recommendation is that you contact a qualified attorney...

    My best recommendation based on the limited factual basis that you have provided is to first consult with business law attorney that practices in international law. Your potential recovery in U.S. courts is largely dependent on where the transactions occurred, where the defendants are located, and whether they have connections or conduct business activities (and have assets) within the jurisdiction of the United States or the State of Florida.

  10. Can a company include a non-compete as part of the severance document sign off if one wasn't signed at the time of employment?

    I agree with the advice provided by my colleagues. Including a non-compete as part of a severance agreement is common--and as with any contract you can always negotiate the terms of the non-compete. Understanding the restraints on time, geographic location and industry to which the non-compete applies is extremely important to know whether the amount of severance compensation you are receiving justifies stopping or limiting your capability to work in a particular trade, at least for a period...
