No Governments have sovereign power. Subject to constitutional and legislative constraints, governments can change laws as they wish. That includes legislative changes and administrative policies. Most governments tend not to use this power arbitrarily because it tends to make investors wary - economists call this sovereign risk. Like any other risk, the ...

Thus how ought these advertisements be rectified? What's more correct to write than "no contract"? Words don't mean the same thing in every context. In the world of cell phone contracts, the well accepted meaning of "no contract" is that you are getting cell phone service on a month to month basis and may cancel at the end of any given ...

Apples App Store guidelines (the rules for being accepted into the App Store that developers agree to be bound to via their developer account) says this: 3.1 Payments 3.1.1 In-App Purchase: If you want to unlock features or functionality within your app, (by way of example: subscriptions, in-game currencies, game levels, access to premium content, or ...

Can they have a clause in the fine print that in laymans terms just says 'we might just not fulfill our side of the deal'. That paraphrase appears to trivialize the actual terms of the contract (of which fine print you mention you don't know in detail). Germany's Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch (BGB) at §262 entitles the shipping company --insofar as obligor-- to a ...

According to regulation 373/1974 § 4(4) (which I presume is still in force due being amended in 2020), confiscated items must be returned by the end of Unterricht (unsure of exact translation, either end of class or school day): Gegenstände, die die Sicherheit gefährden oder den Schulbetrieb stören, dürfen vom Schüler nicht mitgebracht werden. Derartige ...

Generally not With very few exceptions, documents do not need to be witnessed to be valid even where there is a space for a witness to sign. When you knowingly signed it you were making a legal declaration that you had read it, that you understood it and that you agreed to be bound by it. If you didn’t “pay attention to the content” then more fool you. As to ...

You probably would not be "obligated" to do anything. However your employer also would not be "obligated" to continue employment. If you agreed to something verbally, that is a contract. Verbal contracts can be difficult to enforce, but in this case the employer does not need to enforce it but rather take the easier solution of ...

Can I rescind my conditional gift, which was a vehicle, if the employee is no longer with the company? Yes, which you already did when you "informed her that the vehicle was off the table". Rather than a gift, your description reflects that you and the former employee entered a contract regarding that vehicle. The mere fact that one consideration ...

Are the roles specified in a Founders Agreement (contract) legally binding? Yes, like pretty much everything that is provided in a contract. Information about roles is useful for ascertaining the rights and duties to which parties/partners knowingly and willfully agreed. Does having the role of the CEO assigned to you in the contract, for example, give you ...

I don't see a gift; I see a contract I agreed to gift her my vehicle, which needed repairs to run safely, with the condition that she use it to get to work. Your consideration is that you will transfer the vehicle to her; her consideration is that she will use it to get to work. It is important to note that this contract is independent of (although clearly ...

The most simple way how an employer can violate a work contract is usually not mentioned specifically, but heavily implied: Non-payment of wages. If the employer does not pay by the due date, he is in breach of the contract, as he had agreed to pay. But what happens then is dependant on the country you are in and the governing laws. Example: germany The laws ...

An offer has to be definite enough to be accepted without modification in a manner that would create a contract that states the material terms clearly enough that a court could infer reasonable default terms for any issue not expressly addressed. Usually, a failure to specify a specific price in a statement would be construed as an invitation to make an ...

Only governments can punish people A contract that purportedly allowed one person to "punish" another would be void (unenforceable) for public policy reasons.

When I physically transfer the laptop to the buyer does this make them the legal owner of that item? In general, when you complete a contract of sale, the goods have moved from being the seller's property to being the buyer's property. The exact point in time when this occurs depends on the contract and the circumstances and, unless something unforeseen ...

I can sell the software to other potential customers if I want. But isn't that unfair to my customer? That is subjective. That depends on the parties' intent, priorities, the pricing of the product, and so forth. From a legal standpoint, there is no requirement that contracts be symmetric or to establish the same rights & obligations to all parties. You ...

If you want free, specific legal advice on your problem, ask your boss. But as an educational site, we can discuss general principles. As you know, possession is nine-tenths of the law. Suppose we have a situation where a vehicle owner A signs on the relevant line of the title, thereby allowing another person B to take legal ownership of a vehicle: but they ...

Taking legal action is not as effective as making a polite request for a refund, but there is a simple legal question that underlies your problem. It is possible, but not certain, that they breached their contract with you. If so, they have to make you whole, either through a refund or a replacement, or some clever third option. Before the court will get ...

germany In Germany, the exact rules depend on the Land (state), as education is regulated by them. However, the rules mostly seem to boil down to: "Confiscation is allowed to enforce discipline, but things must be returned as soon as practical." For example, In North Rhine-Westphalia the relevant law says: (2) Zu den erzieherischen Einwirkungen ...
