That would be due to that the fact that the inspections were to have been assumed to be passed during the work. The main focus of the case is whether or not the Estelle’s made their complaints known throughout the process. If the complaints were made known and Allen then decided to ignore the complaints and go about his own building plans then he could be held liable for this tort. However, if Allen was completed the work under the assumption that he had been passing the periodic inspections without any complaints then his corporation should not be liable because their work was assumed to be correct and acceptable until the end. “A corporation is a creature of statute, an artificial “person.” Most states follow the Model Business Corporation Act (MBCA) or the RMBCA that are model corporation laws.” Corporation is owned by the shareholders and managed by a board of directors.
Conversely, under the minority view, the burden of proof lies more with the plaintiff showing not only intolerable conditions but that the employer created these conditions causing the resignation. This is defined as the Specific Intent Test. Human Resources Task The reasonable person test focuses on the employer’s actions on the employee whereas the specific intent test focuses on the employer and what causal factors were created to cause the employee to quit. These two tests can overlap in the way that the plaintiff must demonstrate that a reasonable person
“If an inspection is the result of an employee complaint, the employer cannot take any retaliatory action against that employee (Jennings, M, 2006, pg. 747). As far as Paul’s Worker’s Compensation claim is concerned, these “issues have become more complex, and many of
2. Yes, Acertado violated the Standard relating to loyalty to employer when using this model at Smith & Garner, but no misrepresentation and material nonpublic information. 3. Yes, Acertado violated the Standard relating to independence and objective diligence, reasonable basis when he
Negligence is an unintentional tort and occurs when someone is injured because the employer or employee failed to do their legal duty and protect the customer. The employee or employer action could have prevented with common sense. He should have none better than to be standing in a door while people was coming out and he also should have been paying attention and was not. It is the storeowner duty to ensure that his customers were safe and he did not which lead to a customer
Interim earnings, including amounts the employee could have earned with reasonable diligence, must be deducted from the amount awarded for lost wages.

In the obiter the HL stated that there would be liability for a negligent misrepresentation if the representor has some knowledge or skill relevant to the subject matter of the contract and he can reasonably foresee that the other party will rely on that statement. The remedies available for a negligent misrepresentation under Common Law is a rescission and/or damages under tort in order to put the claimant back in the position he was before the tort was committed.
Previously the only amount of pressure that the courts were prepared to recognise amounting to duress would involve personal violence or threats too; this can be evidenced in the case of Barton v. Armstrong. The claimant was the managing director of a company and the defendant was the former chair person. The defendant made threats of violence if the claimant did not purchase shares. The claimant made a purchase but sought a declaration that the transaction was void for duress. The contract was held voidable because the threats of personal violence were a factor in the claimant’s decision, even though he may have entered the contract without the threats being made as he stood to gain.
Workers could lose their jobs putting them in a terrible position. The position would be, if they vote for a strike they would have to support it. If the company starts hiring replacements workers they may cross the lines to save their job then hated by the community for doing so. What workers understand that during a strike, there is a bargaining process with the union and the courts is taking place. What is surprising is that courts no very little about labor, almost nothing about collective bargaining and nothing about unions.
The last thing an injured employee needs after being injured at work is for their employer to refuse to provide accommodations for the employee to perform light duty work . Unfortunately, this is the case in many situations, and many employees are left without remedy because the ADA does not provide for protection under workmen‘s compensation injuries. Under the current version of the ADA, employers are not mandated to alter a position to a accommodate light duty restrictions, as long as the employer has no current light duty program for its employees (Sparks, 1998). The sheer embarrassment of facing the general public is an excellent weapon in fighting an employer that blatantly discriminates against an individual, as occasionally someone brings public attention to the illegalities committed against them, forcing the offender to honor their responsibilities under the ADA (Meneghello and Russon, 2008). Also, there is no requirement that forces an employer to create a light duty position, when there was no such position in existence to begin.
