A colleague needs feedback on a contractor she's considering working with. She's been solicited by EMB Contractors, out of Lawrenceville, GA, and wants feedback re: knowledge of their reputation, i.e., sub-contractor relations, payment, etc. Any feedback from anyone who's worked with this company would be invaluable. If you have experience with EMB, please either (1) contact me for the colleague's email address, and I will pass email address along to you so you can give her your feedback directly, or (2) email me at email@example.com with your feedback, and I'll pass it along to her.
We really have to keep each other safe so we don't get burned on payments, etc., from anyone. Doing your own due diligence is simply good business sense. Thank you so much for any feedback.

Search for Business "Licenses and Permits" Regulations by State: Every business needs one or more federal, state or local licenses or permits to operate. Licenses can range from a basic operating license to very specific permits. Regulations vary by industry, state and locality, so it's very important to understand the licensing rules where your business is located. Not complying with licensing and permitting regulations can lead to expensive fines and put your business at serious risk.
