Recently Asked Questions

  • Q: I own 10% of the shares of a corporation and my friend owns 90% of the shares. We both work for the Corporation and each receives $60,000 per year in salary. He has decided that to raise his salary to $100,000 even though I don’t think that is fair. He said he has control of the corporation and can do what he wants. Is that true?

    Show answerHide answer

    A: Even though your friend has control of the corporation there are limits to what he can do. He cannot act in a manner that is oppressive to you. Raising his salary by $40,000 without justification could be found by a court to be oppressive and a court could force him to pay back his excessive salary and could even order him to buy your shares at fair value, if you wanted to sell them.
