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
Mrs. Tom also alleges that Kresge’s had a “duty of care” for her while visiting the store. A general rule regarding “duty of care” is that the owner of a business is not an insurer of the safety of a business customer, but only owes a duty to exercise reasonable care to his customers. There are several cases which use this Tom vs. Kresge case as precedence for duty of care and mode of operation theories to recover for her
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.
When Pat was hired he signed a document stating that he understood the company’s stance as an at-will employer, therefore, since no contract stating the duration of employment, aNewCorp could terminate Pat for any reason except for an illegal one (Cheeseman, 2010). On these grounds, NewCorp is within law regarding at-will unless there was an illegal reason for the discharge.

Pat will have to prove that the discharge was indeed a wrongful discharge by there being “a violation of state or federal

Title VII prohibits employers from discriminating against employees of job applicants on the basis of race, color, or national origin. (The Legal Environment of Business, Page 494, 4th Paragraph Right Hand Column) Contract Enforceability contains a valid contract with the elements necessary to entitle at least one of the parties to enforce it in court.

Had I known that her intention was to have her husband following soon after with an even larger cart than mine, I would have said no. In Stephanie Ericsson’s essay, The Ways We Lie, she describes omission as “Telling most of the truth minus one or two key facts whose absence changes the story completely” (411). The lady in the store had lied to me without even having to say anything. She neglected to mention a major detail in the story leaving me nothing but pure judgment by the appearance of the situation to base my answer. Any knowing person would not have let a couple with an overflowing cart cut in front of them in a checkout line.
Case 4-6: 1. Yes, I do believe that auditors should be held liable in situations like ZZZZ Best. It is true that ZZZZ Best management worked hard to deceive the auditors. However, the auditors in the ZZZZ Best case failed to maintain their professional skepticism and objectivity. They failed to probe deeper into the company’s operations.
I mean how do you think these people are threats to our country if you don’t have anything to show for the concern. Here is an example of this, when I worked for Wal-Mart they had heard that I was stealing by other employee’s. So they needed to talk with me to see if it was true because they didn’t really have any fiscal evidence on me. This is where you either say what you have done or just say nothing. For me this is where I came clean with what I had done.
