Über diesen Titel
THE ESSENTIAL BOOK EVERY EMPLOYEE NEEDS TO AVOID WORKPLACE LIABILITY
Corporate litigation has spun out of control and can cost up to 10 percent of overall earnings. Changes in the law enabling lawyers to mount business tort claims have caused damages to soar sky-high. In this groundbreaking book, Thomas Schweich, a pioneer in the field of preventive law, turns the tables and offers managers and all employees who act as agents a manual for avoiding the mistakes that could land them in court.
In comprehensible layman's terms, Schweich shows employees from companies of all kinds and sizes how to avoid lawsuits by analyzing the Eight Big Mistakes that can lead to litigation, with examples culled from his experiences at Bryan Cave, LLP, leaders in preventive law.
This book will benefit all employees -- from the CEO of a major corporation to the average deal-making employee. An invaluable tool for avoiding workplace liability, Protect Yourself from Business Lawsuits is a must-read for every businessperson.
Virtually everyone agrees that the process of corporate litigation has spun out of control. Thomas Schweich, an attorney who focuses on the negotiation, mediation, and arbitration of commercial disputes, believes that all of us should therefore be working to lessen our companies' susceptibility to lawsuits--while simultaneously shoring up our own professional reputations--by avoiding the "eight big mistakes" and constructing the "four shields" that he says can ultimately make or break any firm. In Protect Yourself From Business Lawsuits (...and Lawyers Like Me), Schweich begins with his theories on the legal system's problems and their direct and indirect ramifications for business owners as well as employees. He then presents his detailed suggestions for lawsuit protection, starting with a list of the primary blunders to bypass, such as Bad Writing (not knowing when, and when not, to write information down), Speculating (discussing something that you're not qualified to discuss), Bad Research (doing business with the wrong people), and Getting Personal (letting emotions get in the way of common sense). He concludes with explicit details on a quartet of defensive tactics related to document protection, corporate definition, alternative dispute resolution, and the wise choice of business partners. --Howard Rothman
