It has the potential to end very badly for both of you. As far as the rent goes, your rent should have been a fixed weekly or monthly rate. Do we really have to fill this out? I once worked in a booth rental place that used mechanical deadbolts with keycards that would automatically lock themselves after people entered and left outside of normal business hours. Much like a booth renter, independent contractors operate independently, free of excessive control from the business owner.
I have a couple questions. From the sounds of things, you might not be considering it a huge loss at this point, lol. Lastly, the current owner has a salon-owned credit card machine that all the renters use, then she cuts them each a check at the end of the week for their charges less 3%. She ran the ad for a few months until I had resigned my lease and then not again after that until the other day when I told her I was moving. Personally, I would not move forward with this if I were you.
But I have seen clients of hers leave with their hair not as expected. There's always the risk of allergic reactions or skin irritation when you put makeup on someone's skin. Like answering phones, cleaning, and folding towels? If you are providing product…it is an obscene amount of money. Why would you accept 50% when you have to pay 15% of that in federal employment tax and then whatever your state charges for income tax? Any help is greatly appreciated! She cannot dock pay from you like that, that is wage theft. Want to listen to this article instead of reading it? After gas, you are making nothing.
The contract is a 3 month contract. This puts the salon landlord in an extremely legally perilous position. I wish all the best for all the stylists who were brave enough to share their stories to help both owners and other stylists to better their careers! This amount needed to have been decided on and put in writing before you even started working there. Right now the verbal aggreement is pretty basic, the salon is open tues thru sat. Verbal leases are not enforceable.

I think I misread one of the posts up there and have been under the assumption that she told you that you were an employee but was not taking out taxes on you.
Or should I stick to my guns? I hear these complaints from my subscribers about how they feel that nobody takes our industry seriously. Liability insurance for hair stylists is often required by state licensing departments and property owners from whom you might rent space. To my surprise she called me back later that week an offered to open up a salon and I could be the manager, she got a loan and a building and asked me to come up with every operating procedure, hours of work and employee protocols because she has no knowledge of running a nail salon. We have no written contract. Tell her that she desperately needs to take some business management classes and get familiar with employment law before she learns some lessons the hard way. I used to love going there.
A W-4 constitutes legal instructions from employee to employer regarding the number of exemptions and amount of deductions the employer should implement for payroll withholding. This one uses codes or cards. She gets annoyed with the sugar being all over the place. Her stuff is still at the shop and she owes me rent for the last week that she worked… 6wks ago!
