A.  identify and describe several specific tort liabilities that PI could face in its retail store operations; B.  develop and explain policies and/or procedures PI could implement to prevent or minimize each tort risk discussed in A. above; C.  evaluate and discuss how PI owners should orient employees to apply these policies and/or procedures to prevent or minimize identified tort risks.

Purpose

The purpose of this project is to create a plan that demonstrates your understanding of tort law.

This project requires you to identify and analyze legal issues and to make recommendations based on one or more fact patterns. 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:  PI plans to headquarter the business in commercial space in a local shopping center. The PI

headquarters will include private business offices, a reception area, and a conference meeting and planning

space to which potential and existing customers will be invited to discuss proposals for painting jobs, paint

products, and to complete contracts for painting jobs.  The business space will be open to the public to

collect information and inquire about PI services, examine paint displays, and view photos and exhibits from

ongoing and past painting jobs.

The shopping center in which PI will be headquartered is busy and heavily trafficked with customers every day.  The PI owners are concerned about potential accidents on the store property and other liabilities that could arise with customers and employees.

At the direction of your supervisors at BC, you are tasked to develop a plan to identify and minimize potential tort risks that PI faces in its public retail store operations.

PI owners will use the plan to refine policies and procedures to prevent and/or minimize liabilities for PI in the retail facility.

 

Instructions

For this project, you will 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.

Unless your professor instructs otherwise, please place notes and explanations for EACH slide directly on slides in the PPT presentation – not in a separate document.  You will need more than one PPT slide for each point/idea/concept.  Everything you want to say/include in the PPT presentation should be contained in the PPT slides.

The plan focuses on potential tort liabilities (except NOT product liability).

The Power Point presentation will:

A.  identify and describe several specific tort liabilities that PI could face in its retail store operations; B.  develop and explain policies and/or procedures PI could implement to prevent or minimize each tort risk discussed in A. above; C.  evaluate and discuss how PI owners should orient employees to apply these policies and/or procedures to prevent or minimize identified tort risks.

 

You should use only assigned resources available in the classroom for the project.

If needed, please refer to the following links for tips on preparing a PPT presentation.
