The phrase “diversified business services” has been in the business lexicon for years now. Most of us can use some of these words in a sentence, but we are rarely able to articulate exactly what our services are all about.
I can speak for myself. I don’t really know exactly what my services are. I’m an independent contractor. That doesn’t mean I won’t sell something at your business or sell something that’s not on my list of things to sell. It means I’m not involved in the sales process, but I’m a contractor. It’s a complicated thing to wrap your head around.
Sure, if your business is small or your business is just one person, you might have no idea what you are selling. However, the definition of independent contractor has gotten so broad that it is now just a list of adjectives. A small business owner can easily be classified as an entrepreneur, or even a freelancer. A freelancer is a person who is independently wealthy. He or she earns his or her living by selling a service to a business client.
Some of the people who have been the subject of business services lawsuits have found themselves at the wrong end of a business services lawsuit. These include the famous “junket” lawsuit, where businesses have been sued for illegally taking a company’s employees and then paying them for their services. These kinds of lawsuits have become so common that they’ve caused the media to call these lawsuits “charlatans.
Business services lawsuits are actually quite rare in the US. They are very rare in Australia, Canada, and Europe, but a business services lawsuit can occur in any country where a business is involved.
So, the reason why so many companies are suing their employees is because they can’t prove that the employee had the right to do something the company did. As an example, say a company has a long-held policy that employees can’t pick up a company car after work. Now, if the employee has no idea this policy exists, he can sue the company for wrongful termination. That’s why the employee can’t just sue the company for taking the car.
This is so much more than just a case of lawsuits. A lawsuit can be anything. You can have a contract, but there is no way for a company to sue you for a crime you didn’t commit. This is the wrong way to look at it.
There are some strange features of this story. For one, there is a bunch of pictures of the company’s employees on the video screen in front of them. There is a picture of a pretty young kid in a bright blue jacket and a white shirt in the back, and the guy you see is just a boy. Some of these pictures are quite pretty. The only thing you can see in the back is a huge red bikini top. But the photo above is completely different.
The point is, these employees are diversified into a number of different businesses. The main office is a candy, clothing, and makeup store. The front office is a bank. The back office is a hair salon. And there is a restaurant. But the point is that they are all part of the same business. They are not the same business, but it is the same business.
