Corporate Law


Question Description

For this assignment, you will need to conduct legal research in the LEXIS/NEXIS database.

Jennifer Jones owns a business called Maid4U, which provides residential cleaning services. Two women, Grace and Hope, hand out fliers for Maid4U to prospective customers. They choose where and when to distribute the fliers, which have a coupon entitling the customer to a 50% discount for their first cleaning service. Each flier contains a code indicating whether it was received from Faith and Hope. The only compensation that Faith and Hope receive from Maid4U is a flat fee of $20 for each coupon that a new customer redeems for their first house cleaning service.

When a new customer calls Maid4U to arrange for cleaning services, Jennifer goes out to see their home and gives them a price quote for weekly cleaning services. If the price is acceptable, the client signs a contract for weekly cleaning services. Jennifer then contacts April, Mae, or June and schedules one of them to clean the house each week at the requested dates and times. Each week that the house is cleaned, Jennifer splits the fee collected with the cleaner (April, Mae, or June) 50-50. Each cleaner was trained by Jennifer and must clean the homes according to the instructions of the owner and Jennifer. Jennifer usually stops by the home at the end of each cleaning to inspect it and make sure that work is performed in a satisfactory manner. Each cleaner uses their own supplies and equipment, as well as their own personal vehicle or public transportation for traveling to and from the clients' homes.

Jennifer has come to your law firm after receiving notice from the Internal Revenue Service that she is being audited for failing to withhold and pay Social Security taxes for Grace, Hope, April, Mae, and June. Your supervising partner has requested that you draft a memo that (1) explains the criteria that the IRS uses to determine whether or not someone is considered an employee for purposes of taxation, (2) analyzes whether Grace, Hope, April, Mae, and June meet the criteria for employee status, and (3) predicts the likely outcome of the audit.

Your memo should be 3-4 pages in length. Incorporate at least 5 different law review journal articles and/or primary legal sources (statutes, court opinions) within your work. Format citations and references per Harvard Blue Book rules.

Please make sure there are at least 5 law review articles, statutes, or court opinions cited in the work!!
