How do you handle the termination process with a disgruntled employee? Carefully. Severing your business relationship with a disgruntled employee creates the possibility that he or she will eventually become a legal thorn in your shoe.
In business, just like other areas of life, if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
It's become increasingly common to put mandatory arbitration clauses in all kinds of consumer contracts, from cellphones to gift card sales.
If you're a small business owner looking to rent space in a busy strip mall or shopping center, you need to watch out for relocation clauses in a lease before you sign.
Contracts are designed to avoid problems, not create them. One careless agreement, however, can wrap your entire business in legal issues that you're far better off avoiding.
