Workplace accidents and small business owners

When something goes wrong on the job, workers and their employers may have a number of concerns. From an employee’s standpoint, job-related injuries can lead to emotional distress, financial problems, physical pain and an inability to keep working. From an employer’s point of view, job-related accidents can result in the loss of talented staff members and may even lead to litigation. For small business owners, this can be an especially difficult predicament.

People using BitTorrent to pirate porn could face lawsuits

Not long ago, most people could feign ignorance regarding the illegality of downloading media without paying for it. However, the much-publicized Napster lawsuits and similar civil cases over the last two decades have created near ubiquitous public awareness about copyright protections and downloading digital content. Some individual users faced six-digit judgements for downloading music or films.

Age discrimination and business litigation

Legal action brought on by allegations of discrimination can be incredibly challenging for business owners since these lawsuits can result in much more than harsh financial penalties. In fact, cases involving discrimination can also bring down the good reputation of a business and they may also encourage other staff members to file suit (even if there is no truth to the claims). Many people realize the prevalence of racial discrimination and discrimination on the basis of a worker's gender, but some forget that there are many other ways in which workers are discriminated against. For example, an employee may experience discrimination due to his or her age.
