I recently uncovered a bad business practice with a builder and verified it as necessary. In general, it involves them telling home buyers and home inspectors that workers comp is required even for one-man companies.
When questioned about this, they said their insurance company requires it.
I spent a lot of time on the phone with govt. officials to track down their insurance company, which replied, “no, we would never require something like that because it would benefit no one.”
I am waiting to see how they react to the phone calls they will receive from their insurance company and a home buyer monday concerning this.
I am thinking they might take it personal and refuse to cooperate so my plan is to expose this to the media and the general public as I feel obligated to do.
Any ideas on how to do this for maximum effect?
I really don’t care if it puts them out of business, it probably will only cost them a few dozen sales but that is a big hit and exactly what they deserve.
Should I warn them beforehand or would that be considered a threat?
I’m thinking business type threats are legal unlike physical harm type threats, right?
