My question involves business law in the state of:
We are a small company in Missouri our independenct contractor was in Florida (project manager) and the jobs were in Arkansas over a two week period. The IC was brought on for a probationary period and we found within two weeks that his work was below sub-par. He was quickly released from all further work. He cost us all future business at the three companies he was in involved. It has been 7 months and while we paid his expenses for the trip, didn't not pay his fee. He is now threatening a lawsuit, that his attorney is researching a Cease to Work order along with other Medicare/Medicaid threats that I really don't see apply. He's also threatening BBB complaints, etc. The amount he thinks he is owed is 7500. The person who brought him on and who let him go resigned 5 months ago, as well. What should be our course of action.
