My question involves business law in the state of: MN.
I would like to become an independent agent for the travel agency I currently work for. I have an opportunity for considerable new business and want to capture a portion of that for myself. My question is, can I reasonably expect my employer to continue to pay me my existing salary in addition to a percentage of the new business sales? If so would that make me an independent contractor? What is the best way for me to handle this and maintain my existing salary while I build my sales and transition to commission only or independent status?
