The following structure is a basic guide for companies considering an employment dispute resolution program. At the end of the structure are two example clauses. This information is not exhaustive and should not be construed as legal advice or legal advice regarding the use of alternative dispute resolution in a particular dispute or work programme. We advise you to consult an experienced lawyer. States may have specific requirements for labor arbitration and you should ensure that you stay informed of the case law in your jurisdiction.


1. A lawyer must retain the property of another person with the care of a professional agent. Securities must be kept in a locker, unless another form of retention is justified by special circumstances. All property belonging to clients or third parties must be kept separate from the commercial and personal property of the lawyer and, in the case of money, in one or more fiduciary accounts. Separate trust accounts may be justified if you manage estate funds or act in a similar fiduciary capacity. Paragraph (a) requires that complete records of funds and other property be kept. (b) After receiving funds or other property of interest to a client or third party, a lawyer must immediately inform the client or a third party. The undisputed portion of the funds should be distributed without delay to the beneficiaries under representation. A lawyer should not even use the lawyer`s portion of the trust account to make direct payments to the lawyer`s general creditors of the lawyer`s law firm, since such a transaction increases the risk that all the assets in that account will be considered the lawyer`s property and not the clients` property. as well as to satisfy the claims of these creditors. If a lawyer receives funds from a client that constitute an advance payment of fees and that belongs to the client until the services are provided, the lawyer should treat the fund in accordance with paragraph (c).

When the lease is first established, talk to the landlord about who will be living in the unit – be sure to include the number of people (including children) and their names. Note that landlords are prohibited by law from discriminating against potential tenants simply because they have children (except in special cases such as elderly communities). Ask yourself, «Should I bother someone checking my lease before signing it?» My answer? Yes! It is absolutely worth investing time and money to verify the lease of your business premises. Whether it`s the first lease you sign up for or the thirtieth lease, you`ll have added value if you understand the hidden risks and costs of the lease you`re taking out. When negotiating (or renegotiating) a lease, there are potential hidden risks that can be expensive if you don`t consider them in advance. In life and property, sometimes things don`t go as planned! With a waterproof lease, it can save time, money and sleepless nights. Ending up in a dispute that leads to litigation can ultimately be a great waste of energy, time and money.. . .
