Limit Your Legal Risk: Issues and Action Plans for the Business Manager by Susan S. Jarvis (University of Texas, Pan American)
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In today's litigious climate, concerns over legal matters pre-occupy managers at every level. And with good reason. Even companies with the best intentions can be slapped with lawsuits leading to exorbitant attorney's fees, courts costs, and potential damages. The best defense is prevention. An excellent reference on business practice and preventive law, Reducing Business Risk provides an easily accessible guide to the basic elements of business law. It explains what is required to bring a particular type of lawsuit, describes the responsibilities of the parties involved, highlights 'red flag' situations within an organization that may lead to litigation or other problems, and makes suggestions for reducing risks ' and therefore costs ' of lawsuits. It covers such potentially combustible topics as age discrimination, software copyright, non compete, e-contracts, family and medical leave, implied warranties, intellectual property, partnerships, privacy rights, sexual harassment, trade secrets, wrongful discharge, and much more.
