Graded Project Research Memorandum CONTENTS BACKGROUND 2 PROCEDURE 2 GOAL 2 THE PROJECT 3 WRITING GUIDELINES 5 GRADING CRITERIA 6 SUBMITTING YOUR ASSIGNMENT 7 © PENN FOSTER, INC. 2017 RESEARCH MEMORANDUM Graded Project PAGE 1 RESEARCH MEMORANDUM BACKGROUND To complete this project, you’ll prepare a written memorandum. The memo is addressed to your supervisor, a law partner in a small law firm. In the memorandum, you’ll describe which form of business organization you feel would be best for a new client. PROCEDURE To complete this project, you’ll first do some research. Then, refer to your textbook for review; you’ll apply the principles of business organizations and employer-­ independent contractor relationships. Use the information provided below to prepare your memorandum. GOAL Your goal for this project is to complete a well-written memorandum to your supervisor which addresses two legal issues: 1. The appropriate form of business organization for your client 2. What’s required to make sure your client’s independent contractor agreement is viewed as a legally enforceable independent contractor agreement and not as an employment agreement. Remember not to use too much legalese in your memo. You’re writing to your supervisor, who has knowledge of the subject matter. However, you must completely explain what the law is for each type of business organization you’re considering, and the reasons you’ve selected one type of business organization as best for your client. The same complete explanation is required when discussing the issue of your client’s independent contractor agreement. © PENN FOSTER, INC. 2017 RESEARCH MEMORANDUM Graded Project PAGE 2 THE PROJECT Memorandum You’ll respond to the memorandum received from your supervisor. To: Student From: Supervisor Re: New Client, Career Institute of America, Inc. (CIA) Date: December 6, 20— Facts We’ve just met a new client, the founder and CEO of Career Institute of America, Inc. (CIA). Although the business was formed a year ago as a nonprofit corporation, they’re not sure they’re happy being a nonprofit. CIA is a classroom and online education organization that specializes in training students in the U.S. auto industry, one of this country’s largest industries. The client would like to retain most of the ownership and control of the company, since it is really his enterprise. He also has some concerns about the independent contractor agreement, which instructors must sign when they agree to work for the company. He wants to be sure they’re viewed as true independent contractors, and not construed as employees of the company. Note that most of the company’s income is from online training courses. You should also know that they received a U.S. Department of Labor retraining grant for the instruction they’re currently providing, a type of grant awarded only to nonprofit educational organizations. Since this was a one-time grant, they must now make their income from tuition for online courses and in the two small classrooms where they teach traditional courses. This is why they’re not necessarily opposed to changing their form of business from a nonprofit organization to a for-profit business. You should further know that the employment contract they provide to their instructors looks as if it was designed by an amateur and may not comply with the legal requirements for a valid independent contractor agreement. Research Assignment Research the two areas of law described below and prepare a memorandum addressing each area so the client can be properly advised on how to proceed. © PENN FOSTER, INC. 2017 RESEARCH MEMORANDUM Graded Project PAGE 3 1. First, determine the limitations of a nonprofit corporation in the state of Delaware, the state in which CIA was formed and is doing business. You should also review the law for nonprofit and for-profit corporations, as well as limited liability companies, to determine the best form of business for the client. Consult the listing of Delaware statutes on the Delaware state website at http://www.corp.delaware.gov/DElaw.shtml to assist you in your research. For more general information concerning nonprofit corporations, for-profit corporations, and limited liability companies, the following websites can assist you: n http://www.law.cornell.edu n http://www.freeadvice.com n http://www.findlaw.com n http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia n http://www.hg.org Combine this information with what you know about business organizations and what the client wants, so you can recommend the best form of business organization for CIA at this time. 2. The second issue concerns the contract signed by CIA instructors, who teach the programs and grade the students’ papers. Research employment and independent contractor agreements using the websites listed above or on search engines such as Google or Bing. Since the agreements will be signed by client’s instructors located in other states, we want to use the general law dealing with such agreements rather than state-specific. Be sure to identify each of the key elements necessary for the agreement to be viewed as an independent contractor agreement and not an employment agreement, as well as any other suggestions you might have for the client in connection with their instructor contracts. Here are some helpful hints: n Remember that the project requires that you use the memo format provided and that you research both issues requested: the most appropriate form of business organization to meet the client’s needs and the requirements for an agent to be deemed an independent contractor and not an employee. n First locate the law for each of the two issues. n Next, analyze the information you found and apply it to the needs of the client. n Both your research and your analysis should then be summarized and included in your memo. © PENN FOSTER, INC. 2017 RESEARCH MEMORANDUM Graded Project PAGE 4 WRITING GUIDELINES Prepare your answers in well-organized paragraphs, and use these writing guidelines: 1.

associated with the not for profit corporations is the ferocious competition primarily for the
resources in Delaware. Apparently, not for profits corporations need more money and committed
volunteers than just being empathetic, sympathetic, concerned and devoted. Like in other parts of
the world, not for profit corporations in Delaware are strictly not for money making activities
and thus the owners should never have any financial gains from the services provided or part of
