Legal Answers
7 Questions Answered
Q. Corporate acquisitions - Is the acquirer bound to uphold hiring contracts established by the acquiree?
A: In a corporate acquisition, the acquirer typically conducts due dilligence to review the existing employment contracts of the acquiree. The approach depends on the type of acquisition. In an asset purchase, the acquirer can select which contracts to assume, including their terms. Conversely, in a stock purchase, the acquirer generally inherits all contracts, including employment agreements, as they are purchasing the entire entity. This is the standard practice unless there are specific state provisions that protect employees in the event of an operation's sale. It's imperative to thoroughly review the acquisition agreement's specific terms and consult with legal counsel to understand the obligations accurately. ... Read More
Q. Can I work for my company from a different state if it's incorporated in Delaware?
A: Generally, the location of your company's registration does not restrict where it can operate. You would have to register the Delaware company in Idaho.This acknowledges that your business, originally formed in Delaware, will be conducting business in Idaho. It's a common procedure for companies based in one state but operating in another, and it ensures compliance with Idaho's state business regulations. For detailed instructions and legal compliance, it's advisable to consult with a legal expert or a business attorney familiar with Idaho corporate law.
Q. Mh roommates rental lease doesn’t say I can’t sublease and they never answered my call on it when I asked them twice.
A: It is my understanding that in Virginia, the right to sublease is not automatically granted to tenants. Whether or not a tenant is allowed to sublet depends on the terms of their lease. For a comprehensive understanding and legal interpretation of these provisions, it is advisable to consult with local legal counsel familiar with property leases and tenant laws in your jurisdiction.
