When Should Someone Have A Contract Reviewed?
Any time a contract term is longer than a period of one year, you should probably have your attorney review it, particularly if you cannot cancel the contract. If the contract looks overly long, overly sufficient, overly burdensome, or seems confusing to you, then you should probably have an attorney review it. Ultimately, if you have questions or you are not sure on a contract, get it reviewed.
How Do I Protect My Business From A Discrimination Claim?
You can protect your business from a discrimination claim by having policies in place and acting on those policies. You need to have a plan in place for what your employees are supposed to do, in the event that there is discrimination. For example, if you have an employee who is being sexually harassed in the workplace, you need to have a person for them to go to, so they can express their concerns. There needs to be a written process for how action is taken. That’s the key to making sure you can avoid a discrimination case.
In the event that an employee is terminated and they believe that they have a discrimination claim, a severance package can go a long way to limiting liability. Most businesses would not be devastated if they had to pay an employee for an extra week or two when they let them go. However, when a business is sued for sexual harassment or racial discrimination, it very frequently can bankrupt a small business. It’s very important that the business has insurance and tries to get rid of risks before they occur.
How Do I Protect My Business From A Slip And Fall?
There are a couple of ways to protect yourself from a slip and fall. The most important way is to prevent things that people can slip and fall on. You are never going to be able to stop every accident from occurring, but when it comes to slip and fall cases, they are brought under the theory of negligence. The other party has to show that you had a duty to create some standard of care and you somehow failed to meet that duty.
The key to slip and falls and most other liability creating events is planning and making sure that you have insurance, so that if something does happen, you can defend yourself or settle. You should never let your small business be in a position where one accident or mistake can cause the entire business to fall apart. If you are in that position, it’s important that you work with a professional to try to get your business out of that position or else you will always be in jeopardy.
