Law, World, Legal, Symbol, Global, Justice, Globe

Nowadays, more and more people are venturing in to different kinds of businesses even though majority of start up businesses fail. This is primarily because many of us have still huge heart when it comes to business. In the present times, home cleaning businesses are booming because a lot of people are becoming health conscious, hence they prefer to clean their homes often. However, because of too much commitments and hectic schedule, we tend to forget to allot a time which makes  home cleaning businesses in maidjustright.net in demand.

If you are planning to start a home cleaning business and you think that it is that easy, then you are wrong. Legal issues are part of every business and it is must for you to understand it. It will depend on so many variables. But you must be specific enough when it comes to your business.

There are rules involved in the process that include recruiting, drug testing, hiring, and firing house cleaners and maids. There are not-so-strict rules if you are the boss and you are the only one booking the jobs and doing the work.

The taxes could have legal implications if you set the business up as a solo house cleaner, then hire people to work for you and who will do the job cleaning. The expectations from OSHA could involve legal issues. As the boss there are things you should know – should being the key word. Yet when you hire employees that “should” becomes mandatory training under state “right to know” laws.

As an employer you should ensure the rights of cleaner because they are somewhat your responsibility. You should know how to take legal action in case your employee was harassed or discriminated by a customer or if someone file a case against you for something that you did not actually do.

Once you figure out the worst thing that can happen, then you can safeguard yourself from that thing by being prepared. Maybe you need a new contract in place, or a new insurance policy, maybe you need more help. Regardless, challenges will easily be solved.

U.S. Chamber of Commerce Poised to Legally Block Trump’s New Mexico Importation Tariffs

On the same day (May 30, 2019) when the U.S. – China Trade War negotiations broke down, U.S. president Donald Trump announced that starting June 10, 2019, he will be imposing a five percent (5%) tariff on Mexico importations. The said tariff will increase by another five percent (5%) every month up to October, 2019 until it reaches a max of twenty-five percent (25%).

The uproar against the new tariff imposition is so resounding that no less than the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (USCC) intends to sue Donald Trump. John Murphy, USCC Senior Vice President Of International affairs came out with an announcement that his group is constrained to make a move against the new Trump tariff.

As it is, leading business organizations are already discussing filing a lawsuit against the White House, to which actions on how they will go about it will be decided this Monday (June 03, 2019.) Mr. Murphy commented,

“Imposing tariffs on goods purchased from Mexico is exactly the wrong move… American families and businesses will be paying the tariffs, without solving the very real problems at the U.S. – Mexico border.”

Trump said that imposing tariffs on Mexico is his administration’s way of pressuring Mexico President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to step up with the blocking of Central American migrants to prevent groups from crossing into the U.S border. Trump intends to impose the Mexico tariff until such time the issue concerning the surge of illegal immigrants passing through Mexico, has been resolved.

USCC Analysis of the New Tariff Impact on U.S. States that Import Goods from Mexico

In 2018, imported goods from Mexico totaled $346.5 billion. Should the Trump administration go ahead with the five percent (5%) tariff on Mexico importations, the USCC estimates that American consumers and businesses will be confronted with as much as $17 billion in tax increases.

Yet that is only the initial onus that taxpayers have to shoulder. Since the planned tariff is set to gradually increase at five percent (5%) each succeeding month to reach 25% by October, 2019, the potential tax burden could soar to $86 billion. Trump intends to impose the 25% tariff until Mexico does something to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into the U.S. border.

Businesses in the U.S. states of Texas, Michigan, California, Illinois, Ohio and Arizona regard Mexico as a top trading partner, as importing goods coming from the country has contributed to their economic growth and job opportunities. These states will be the hardest hit, if businesses and consumer will be constrained to pay additional taxes on the goods they import from Mexico.
