My question involves business law in the state of: Minnesota, Anoka County
Hi, I am looking for any advice any of you may have for me and my business I am starting up which is a sober cab service.
My business plan:
Two people go to bar/party/event. Once there, every passenger that will be riding in the vehicle signs a waiver (which basically is for protection of property damage to their vehicle and personal injury/fatalities, and yes I will have the waiver looked over by a lawyer here.)
One person then drives the person/s in there vehicle to there destination while my partner follows in our company car. Basically, we pick them and there vehicle up and bring them to where ever they want.
As far as employing people goes (at least in the beginning,) I plan on contracting the work so I do not have to pay workers comp or any other costs of that sort. So eventually when I want to cover other bars I can contract the work to someone, and then they can subcontract to their partner. I will also have a lawyer look over the contract I write or just have a lawyer write it for me.
Lastly, at least in the beginning I am starting it up as a sole-proprietorship.
So, do any of you see anything wrong with this business model? Any other legal concerns I need to look into?
What kind of insurance and specifically what for would be great to know if any of you know that also.
