Business Law classes coming to Newport and Lincoln City
In recent years, some Oregon Coast businesses have discovered that the “independent contractors” they’ve relied upon in their operations for years are, in the eyes of state officials, employees. Fines and bills for back-taxes have resulted for some local firms.
Is your independent contractor actually your employee? Will your independent contractor or employee create liability for you or your business? This workshop, set for April 30, is designed for employers and independent contractors, will help participants understand their potential liability in various contexts by understanding basic legal principals and the tests BOLI (Bureau of Labor and Industry) commonly uses to distinguish business relationships. Additionally, participants, with guidance from the instructor, will examine basic contracts and business practices to help them achieve their goals.
The April 23 course is a practical introduction to business formation. For entrepreneurs needing to know how to protect themselves and their business from potential liability, to seasoned business owners needing to review their operations, this course will provide concrete examples and guidance for all. Students will learn to distinguish between various for-profit and non-profit corporate entities to help them understand which formation can best help them achieve their goals. With a look to future business operations, the course will briefly discuss contract formation and agency.
The classes will be held on Wednesdays, April 23 and April 30. Both will begin at 6 pm.
Below are the tentative agendas for these two sessions. The instructor, however, plans to tailor course content to the registrants’ needs.
The fee for these classes is $30 each, or both for $50. The classes will meet in Room 151 at Oregon Coast Community College, Newport, 400 SE College Way and in Room 208 at the Lincoln City campus, 3788 SE High School Drive.
