About a year ago I agreed (verbally) to do some programming work for a startup in exchange for a small amount of equity. In the meantime I've lost faith that this equity will be worth anything. Can I decline to do this work, or have I made a binding verbal contract that I must now fulfill? [more inside]

Shouldn't our landlord sign the lease too?

We signed a lease (2 copies) on a new apartment in NYC, at our broker's office. The 2 copies were sent to the management company. As promised, the management company sent one of the copies back to us about a week later. It's got our original signatures, but the landlord didn't sign it! The line for the landlord's signature is empty. Doesn't this mean that we're bound to the terms of the contract, but the landlord is not? It seems very wrong. Is it normal? Should we demand a copy of the lease with the signatures of both parties on it?

How to stay a Indie. Contractor?

I have been freelancing as TV producer for one company for over 6 months now working on various projects. The boss thinks he needs me to stand down for a few weeks to keep my independent contractor status. All of the IRS info I have found is vague on the point of continuous employment. How long will I have to stand down (aka take the vacation I want to take) before I can return to this company? And legally how long is too long to be a contactor for one company (when does the IRS question contractor vs. employee)?

Verizon contract snafu

Verizon Wireless extended my contract without my knowledge or consent when I changed my service plan a few months ago. I explicity ask Verizon each time I make a change to my account whether or not the change would extend my contract, and the customer rep must have said no, or else I would not have agreed.

Advice for recovering long-overdue debt

I'm trying to recover a debt owed to me (currently $1300+) by a client for whom I worked as an independent tech contractor in 2002-03. He's very slowly paid off a lot of the original debt ($5000), but he stopped making the payments almost two months ago with no explanation, and has been completely non-responsive to all my contact attempts ever since. It's a matter of very high personal importance that I recover the full debt in this case (because this is a very slimy guy, and because his company could not have started up or earned money without my work). I also need the money, so this is not something I can walk away from in that sense either. [more inside]

How can I politely end a contract with my broker?

I have been, for some time now, looking for a space for my retail store. I had to sign a contract with a broker, since in the area I was looking you can only have one broker working for you. I have seen a few spaces and have been in contract talks with one of them, but that fell through (not because of the broker). I also asked the broker about a SPECIFIC space, but they said everything was taken and nothing was available there. Later I called myself and found out more information, and soon contacted a landlord willing to lease me a space. I like my broker and think they tried their best, but I need to break the contract so I can go on and deal with this space myself. It is no problem to cancel the contract I just need to send a letter. I guess my question is, how can I let my broker go, without harboring or sending any bad feelings?
