My question involves business law in the state of: New York.
I run a company, and use an independent contractor to do some of my work. My contractor informed me he will no longer be able to perform work for me. When I requested return of my files so that I could work on them or find a new subcontractor, he refused to turn them over unless I signed a release containing a waiver of liability for all past work. What remedies do I have to take back my property?
