The out-dated fifty-year-old city ordinance has created an artificial market for “certificates of compliance,” not to mention creating in the local liquor market an oligopoly (the market condition that exists when there are few sellers, as a result of which they can greatly influence price and other market factors).

Both the local liquor oligopoly and the market for “certificates of compliance” hurt Clarksville’s local economy. «Read the rest of this article»

Employment Contracts in an At-Will Employment State


Employment ContractClarksville, TN – I am always a little shocked at how little many business owners know about employment contracts, especially employers who have several, or even many, employees.

Many business owners simple assume that, because their business is located in an at-will employment state, a contract for employment is either infeasible or otherwise undesirable. Often, nothing could be further from the truth.

If your business is in an at-will employment state, that, in a nutshell, merely means that the default rule is that an employment relationship can be terminated any time for any reason, as long as you’re not discriminating against a member of a protected class. «Read the rest of this article»

Write your own Will


Consumer Reports Monday Adviser Tests Three Software Programs

Consumer ReportsYonkers, NY – A well-written will is essential, but you don’t necessarily need an attorney to write it. A number of software providers promise to help you draft a legal will for far less than you’d pay a lawyer.

The experts at Consumer Reports Money Adviser tested three electronic offerings: LegalZoom, Rocket Lawyer, and Quicken WillMaker Plus. The result: All three are better than nothing if you have no will. But unless your needs are very simple—say, you want to leave everything to your spouse with no other provisions—none of them is likely to meet your needs. And CRMA found problems with all three. «Read the rest of this article»
