Basics of confidentiality agreements

If you run or own a business in Michigan or Illinois, you know that there are times when your work with other entities requires you to share some information about your business that may be sensitive. If you believe this is something you should do, it is important to know how to protect your business so that this sensitive data is not stolen, inappropriately shared or used against you in some way.

How to show a dog is a good citizen

Michigan residents may understand the challenges that come with having a dog in a co-op. Even if the dog is allowed to be there, it still has to fit in with other animals and humans. The process of deciding whether an animal is a good fit for a co-op may be largely subjective. However, this doesn't necessarily need to be the case.

What is a limited partnership?

As business-minded folk in Chicago like you work toward making your entrepreneurial dreams a reality, you're likely to run into questions of whether or not to get other people involved in your plans. There are plenty of different partnerships you can look into, and each offers its own benefits. Let's take a look at limited partnerships first.

Point of Order

Far too often the beautiful Robert's Rule is misused during a Board meeting and used to abuse a speaker. Often, it is because of a misunderstanding of parliamentary procedure but sometimes it is to further individual agendas. The Rules of Parliamentary Procedure are put in place to protect meeting participant's rights and to assist moving business along. But when those rules are misused or abused, these rules can hinder and delay business; ultimately placing corporate action at a standstill to the detriment of not only the Board but the members the Board is elected to serve.

City may have violated Fair Housing Act

Michigan residents may be aware that it is illegal to discriminate when renting or selling property. On Nov. 28, the Justice Department announced that it was suing the city of Springfield, Illinois, for violating the Fair Housing Act. The lawsuit alleges that the city discriminated against people with disabilities in the way it treated group homes for those who are disabled. Specifically, the city allegedly tried to close a home that had three disabled residents.

Considerations in choosing a business model

People who are creating new businesses in Illinois must at some point make a choice about how they will structure their new company. As explained by Entrepreneur magazine, there are multiple factors that should be reviewed in order to ensure that the right selection for the company's needs and goals is made.
