Commercial litigation filed over unionization posters

Georgia business owners may remember that in 2010, President Barack Obama signed an executive order requiring businesses to display posters advising employees about their rights to form or join a union. Many employers object to displaying the posters, and at least one lawsuit was ruled on earlier this year regarding those objections. In that commercial litigation the court ruled the posters go beyond what was intended by the National Labor Relations Act.

Georgia wage and hour law: Should the minimum wage be raised?

A good deal of attention has been paid lately to increasing the federal minimum wage. Some Georgia residents may not realize that the minimum wage has only been part of wage and hour law for about 80 years. The first minimum wage was passed by Congress in 1938 and was $.25. The current minimum wage of $7.25 per hour was set back in 2009.

More commercial litigation filed against Bank of America

When the housing market collapsed, it did not take long for it to become public knowledge in Georgia and elsewhere that the lending practices of large banks were a significant factor. Lenders such as Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Citigroup Inc. were blamed. Now that the economy seems to be on the mend, a good deal of commercial litigation has been filed in an attempt to hold these banks accountable. Recently, a large west coast city filed a lawsuit against these three banks.

Franchise agreements: Billy Joel signs music franchise agreement

Franchises come in all different shapes and sizes, but what they have in common is a trademark or trade name. The most popular franchise agreements, in Georgia and elsewhere, are for popular fast food restaurants such as McDonald's. However, there are a myriad of other franchises, including music franchises.
