Classifying a Worker in Minnesota

question.jpgStarting a business is an exciting--and stressful--endeavor. When you are just starting, you may be relying on yourself and only a couple of other people. As your business grows, you may need to take on more people to help keep the progress going. As that happens, it will be important for you to understand how to classify the potentially different types of workers on your team.

Recently Divorced? Financial Pitfalls to Avoid over the Holidays

ChristmasBall.jpgThe holidays can be very difficult for people who are recently divorced. Not only can they feel lonely and overwhelmed but the stressful financial demands of the season can be particularly upsetting to someone dealing with a new personal and economic situation.

To prevent finances from causing unnecessary strain on your holidays (and the months that follow), consider this:

3 Mistakes to Avoid When Resolving a Dispute Between Partners

Zebras.jpgStarting a small business takes incredible effort and commitment. When an issue or dispute arises that puts your work in jeopardy, it is not unusual for a business owner to become upset and want to respond aggressively and immediately.

That said, acting without thinking or examining the legal remedies can ultimately do more harm than good.

Tips for Making Final Arrangements

Space.jpgLosing a loved one is, first and foremost, an emotional experience. However, unavoidable financial and logistical considerations are also lurking in the wings. In the aftermath of someone's passing, the task of making final arrangements and juxtaposing profound grief with mundane business transactions can often feel a bit surreal. This is particularly true when the death is unexpected or if family members disagree about what arrangements should be made.

Perhaps--maybe after having gone through this experience yourself--you've decided to make things easier for your own family and to ensure they respect your wishes after you pass. Here are a few crucial steps you can take to meet those objectives.

Avoiding Holiday-Related Employment Disputes

Holiday.jpgThe holiday season is here, and that means many employers will be dealing with issues like reduced productivity, holiday party plans, and end-of-year priorities that demand attention.

If that sounds familiar, now is also a good time to review your employment policies with your employees. Doing so can reduce disputes and make it easier to navigate the holidays peacefully.

3 Ways Parents Can Make Divorce Easier on Children

Familyof3.jpgIt is no secret that divorce is hard on adults; it is complicated, emotional, and stressful. However, it can also be very difficult on children, particularly when they don't understand what divorce means or why it may be the best decision for their parents.

As such, parents can take a few important steps to make the divorce process a little easier on their children.

So, Do We Have a Deal?

handshake.jpgMaking deals and reaching agreements are things every business owner should have experience doing. After all, these negotiations are often the foundation upon which businesses and relationships are built. 

However, it's typically not enough to know how to strike a deal. You should also know how to make that deal legally binding and enforceable, because contract disputes are among the more common issues business owners face. This means understanding the basics of what makes a contract a contract.

Surprising Assets Worth Protecting with a Prenuptial Agreement

Wedding2.jpgPeople often misinterpret or misunderstand prenuptial (aka, antenuptial) agreements. Some people think that having one is a sign of insecurity about the marriage; others think a prenup is only necessary if one or both parties are extremely wealthy.

But the truth is that a prenuptial agreement is a powerful planning tool, not an indication that a marriage will end in divorce. And it can do much more than protect million-dollar properties and portfolios. In fact, you could have a lot more to protect than you think.

Four Legal Considerations for Growing Dental Practices
