There must be rules by the courier or the business company about compensation or fine that any party has to pay to you as the recipient.

If you are looking forward to having a flexible working life or a balanced work-life lifestyle, working as a lawyer will allow you to have the experience because you will not have to go to the office everyday since you will be working in your clients’ file and you can even do that from your home. You can choose when to go to the office and when not to go. It also allows you to open your own firm which means more flexibility while working. Not only that, it is also flexible when it comes to picking jobs, clients and the working field.
