Ok so here is the deal. I have had a lawn care business for the last 9yrs. I am also currently employed. Two years ago my boss came to me and asked if I would be interested in maintaining the property. Of course I agreed to it. No problems until now. One of the upper management bosses told me to stop cutting the grass for now because he found some kind of federal regulation that states if an employee does work or service for the company he works for outside of his normal job and his business is in his name, the employer has to pay for hours worked. For example I work a 40hr week and it takes 5hrs to take care of the property they have to pay me for a 45hr work week on top of the contract money. It does not make any sense to me. If anybody has any input or knowledge of this law please reply.
