No matter how well a Maryland business is doing, problems can arise. Some of those problems can result in a business dispute with other companies or individuals. These disagreements can occur for a variety of reasons, and each of them may require a different method of resolution.
In the past, small businesses in Maryland and elsewhere in the country used to receive discounts from health insurance carriers for healthy employees, while others were assessed a surcharge for employees who experienced numerous health issues. Beginning this year, the Affordable Care Act mandated that those discounts and surcharges cease. This will most likely require an adjustment to a company's business plan -- especially if it was receiving a discount.
Maryland residents may not be aware that companies in the private sector are clamoring for the chance to work with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. As a result, NASA recently awarded two companies with contracts worth billions of dollars. One company that bid on the contracts initiated a business dispute requesting that the awards be reevaluated.
