Former Employee vs. Small Business
October 25th, 2012 by JBWK
Bloomberg’s Businessweek offers some sound advice for small business owners facing legal threats by former employees. First, from a business owner, the delightful description of being on the receiving end of those threats:
For anybody who goes through the blood, sweat, and tears of starting a business, when someone comes along with an attorney whose No. 1 goal is to extract money, it produces stress and lack of sleep.
There is, however, some very good advice, including:
- Don’t ignore it
- Check if your insurance will cover you
- Call your attorney
- Save all documents that could be relevant
- Don’t try to settle the score personally
