The purpose of this project is to research, analyze and apply tort law.
This project requires you to identify and assess legal issues, apply law to facts and make recommendations. The issues will relate to the concepts covered in weeks 1, 2, and 3 about the legal environment of business and business organizations.
You will also develop skills in developing a PowerPoint presentation, in writing a summary report and using critical thinking to write an in-depth comprehensive analysis.
Outcomes Met by Completing this Assignment:
· recommend appropriate actions in the business environment based on an understanding of sources of law, legal process and procedure, and available remedies
· analyze tort rights, obligations, liabilities, and remedies in the business environment
Background: GC has two primary concerns about tort risks and liabilities. These are (1) risks related to potential accidents occurring in their public business space to employees and/or customers, and (2) risks related to cleaning jobs,
GC will be headquartered in commercial space in a local shopping center. This space will include private business offices, a public reception area, a conference meeting area, and space to which potential and existing clients will be invited to discuss cleaning jobs, buy cleaning products, and complete contracts for cleaning jobs. The business space will be open to the public. The shopping center in which GC will be headquartered is busy and heavily trafficked with shoppers.
Of greater concern are risks arising from accidents and injuries to cleaner-employees and /or clients related to cleaning jobs.
At the direction of your supervisors at TLG, you are tasked to develop a plan to identify potential risks and liabilities and recommend ways to minimize potential tort risks in (1) GC’s public store operations, and (2) on cleaning jobs.
GC owners will use the plan to refine policies and procedures to prevent and/or minimize liabilities for GC in its public facility and on cleaning jobs.
For this project, write a plan to be presented in a PowerPoint (PPT) presentation.
There is no set number of slides but include a title page and a reference page.
Please place all notes and explanations for EACH slide directly on slides in the PPT presentation – not in a separate document. You likely will need more than one PPT slide for each point/idea/concept so that everything you want to say/include in the presentation will be contained in the PPT slides.
The plan focuses on potential tort liabilities (except do not discuss or include product liability in this project).
The Power Point presentation will:
1. identify and describe several specific tort liabilities that GC could face in its public store facility operations;
A. develop and explain policies and/or procedures GC could implement to prevent or minimize each tort risk discussed in 1. above;
2. identify and describe several specific tort liabilities that GC could face on cleaning jobs;
A. develop and explain policies and/or procedures GC could implement to prevent or minimize each tort risk discussed in 2. above;
You should use only assigned resources available in the classroom for the project.
Use in text citations, as needed.
Include a References List of cited resources
Label each part of the Power Point as follows:
