What Can I Do if Someone Puts a Mechanics' Lien on My House?

When trying to sell your house, you or the buyer will inevitably do a title search on the house. What many people do not expect is an unknown lien on the property. This can be extremely annoying considering the sale of the property is probably coming soon.

Bonuses, Vacation Pay are Still Consider Wages Under Colorado Law

There are many ways an employer can pay an employee in the employer-employee context. Many employees enjoy the benefit of bonuses, compensation, and vacation pay as compensation. It is important to note that while a bonus might not be deemed a traditional wage, under the Colorado Wage Act they are considered "wages" or "compensation".  That means that if you haven't been paid your bonus, you can go after your employer under the law for that unpaid bonus.  

Possible Changes to PUC Law Could Lead to More Transportation Options

House Bill 1316 has been put on Governor Hickenlooper's desk. This bill would streamline the process of becoming a transportation company.  Under the current law, any prospective taxi company in the Denver metro area has to prove that there is a "public need" prior to getting authorization by the Colorado Public Utilities Commission (PUC) to operate as public carrier.  But if the Governor signs this bill into law, then that public need requirement will be eliminated.  This is great news for potential competitors to Metro Taxi, Yellow Cab, Uber and other transportation providers in the Denver area.  This would make it much easier for potential competitor taxi companies to operate because traditionally it has been hard to establish public need. 

Students in Medical Fields Should be Careful with Clinical Rotations

With the growth in the medical field, numerous students are now pursuing degrees allowing them to be a doctor, nurse, psychologist, pharmacist, CNA, dental hygenists or other type of health care provider.  This is a good development in the Denver, Colorado area because it will give consumers a wide range of options for service providers.

Basics of Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Marital agreements which include prenuptial (before the marriage) agreements and antenuptial or postnuptial (after the marriage) agreements are a common sight in pop culture, but with their common sight comes many misconceptions.  Marital agreements require an understanding of the law and careful eye to become enforceable in court. Although the agreement itself is a contract, you are not able to make any arrangements that are outside of the law. This can often times challenge the writer to ensure each provision will be upheld.

Independent Contractor or Employee?

Employers routinely misclassify workers for their own benefit. Recently, more and more employers are classifying their workers as independent contractors in the state of Colorado to save money. If workers are classified as independent contractors, employers do not have to pay for health insurance, workers' compensation insurance and unemployment benefits for their workers and employers a lot save money on taxes. This classification only benefits the employer.

Students Facing Discipline Potentially Could be Protected by Special Education Laws

Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), if a student who has not been identified as requiring an Individualized Education Program (IEP) is facing removal from the regular educational setting - i.e., expulsion or an extended suspension - but a parent nevertheless believes the student may have a disability, the parent may request a special education evaluation.  This is a situation that occasionally will arise.
