Question Details:I currently work for a POS company who baits and switches their clients, owes money to suppliers and vendors, robs Peter to pay Paul, breaches contracts by refusing to pay agreed compensation. This company is Incorperated but is operating under a DBA that has a different name. 3 independant contractors opened a new DBA in a different couny under the same DBA name. The LLC, trademark/copyright is available and these guys opened a business account. They are taking bids on contracts and are accepting bids on services that the POS company refuses to do. What is the legal implications of these actions?
If your employer is actually doing work that is criminal and if you also assist in such criminal activities, you easily can be arrested for such. Even if the conduct is impermissible under civil law, you could still end up being sued for some tort and be subject to personal liability.
If you have doubts as to the ethics of your employer, you should consult with a business attorney experienced also in labor law to assist you how you wish to proceed in your employment or not.
