  1. Yes as I assume they are independent contractors correct?


  2. That should be in the contract you have with them. You may also wish to consider getting insurance in the event that something happens and you are brought in to the case. See a lawyer in SC to discuss your options. Good luck.

    You should consult an attorney in your State at once. This response does not constitute legal advise outside the State Of Michigan and is not intended to establish an attorney-client relationship with our offices. It is for informational use only of the general laws in the State of Michigan, only. To retain our offices, you need to sign a contingency contract with us. We do offer free consultations and we can refer clients to lawyers in your State if you call us. Visit our webpage and tell us what you think. www.schnitzerlaw.net


  3. You could make that requirement a part of your contract with your renters. You also should be carrying your own general liability insurance, because if there is a problem, your salon will be joined in the action.
