Running your own business gives you the freedom to work and operate on your own terms. Unfortunately, government intervention may compromise your ability to continue your business the way you wish. In some situations, you could even face legal consequences. Protecting yourself against such actions is essential.
Protecting your interests
As a Minnesota business owner, you have basic rights under both state and federal law that must be upheld. Asserting those rights against government overreach while simultaneously running your business can be a challenge, though. When you try to juggle both responsibilities on your own, you may be more likely to drop the ball when it comes to your:
- Due process of law
- Free speech
- Freedom of religion
- Statutory rights
Understanding your situation
Even business owners who do their very best to adhere to all state and federal laws can still end up dealing with government-related problems. This is partially because businesses are expected to adhere to a significant number of laws and regulations, many of which are confusing or not well known. One of the first steps you should take is to understand the government’s accusations as well as the corresponding laws or regulations.
Business owners are known for wearing hats and their willingness to take on any number of responsibilities. This talent does not necessarily translate to dealing with government intervention. Both federal and Minnesota state law are complicated, so you should be sure to work closely with an attorney who is well versed in both.
