For any business that has employees, it is incredibly important to understand how and when the business can be held liable for the actions and inactions of the employees of the business. Contrary to popular understanding, merely designating your employees as “independent contractors” or “subcontractors” does not automatically shield you from any injuries or other damages that they might cause. Likewise, it is important to understand when your employees can bind the business to contracts that they sign. This seminar will provide the business owner and/or manager with an understanding and appreciation of the circumstances under which the business can be held liable for the conduct and promises of its employees.
