INTRODUCTION In their day to day lives and interactions, human beings commit wrongs that may cause harm to others whether intentionally or unintentionally as a result, they are made to compensate the injured party or individual who has suffered a loss or injury due to their conduct.

This essay will with references to decided cases, critically discuss the foundation of tortious liability and the purpose of law of torts. NATURE OF A TORT The nature of a tort can best be understood by making a distinction between a tort and a crime.
The main purpose of this article is to discuss the Caux Round Table (CRT) Principles for Responsible Business which has described moral standards for suitable behavior in the workplace.

One challenge is that the employers must keep abreast of the changes related to federal employment law and develop individual policies accordingly. The employers must adhere to the laws in order to avoid law suits and put forth effective leadership. Employment relationships are considered to be a contract.

NEWCORP LEGAL SCENARIOS BUSINESS LAW Legal Encounter 1 In the given situation NewCorp is liable for having to follow the guidelines of what the handbook states on the given situation with Pat. Pat has the right to sue NewCorp given the fact that when he was hired on he signed the handbook which in it, it has a section that is Notice of Unsatisfactory Performance/Corrective Action Plan. In this section of the handbook it states that if any employee has a deficiency in their job they are to be put on a Corrective Action Plan and if the performance does not improve they can be terminated. Therefore in a court NewCorp can be found in breach of contract, since the employee handbook is a signed contract.

in distinguishing an employee from an independent contractor"); Merchants, 580 F.2d at 972-73 (same); Restatement (Second) of Agency § 220 (1957) (common law agency principles). Although courts must look to the totality of the circumstances, "[t]he essential ingredient of the agency test is the extent of control exercised by the `employer.' It rests primarily upon the amount of supervision that the putative employer has a right to exercise over the individual, particularly regarding the details of the work." SIDA, 512 F.2d at 357(internal quotation marks and citation omitted). Additional factors that are relevant to this determination include "entrepreneurial aspects of the individual's business; risk of loss and opportunity for profit; and the individual's proprietary interest in his business."
When an employer is willing to fire an employee, he should make a report with basic information on the causes of the dismissal accordingly to the employee’s performance. In conclusion, I personally think that depending on the case we are dealing with, either one would be fair and just, but I strongly support that any dismissal has to have a strong reason for it to occur, can be professional or even personal, but a main reason and not just the will of a person. 2º a) Brief for Iron Dynamics Inc v.

In the first situation the challenge is whether the employer should follow the contract that was agreed upon with the National Labor Relations Board or not. One point of view is that the employer should follow the contract that was agreed upon. The agreement stated that the employer was going to reinstate and pay a certain amount of back pay to each illegally discharged person. By law once a contract is made and agreed upon, both parties are liable for following through with their part of the contract. Secondly, if the employer does follow through on his part of the agreement he can be charged with breach of contract.
Law Chapelton v Barry Urban District Council shows that unsigned exclusion clauses need to be clearly defined to a reasonable person. Another case highlighting the need for exclusions to be clearly informed to the other party is the case of Causer v Browne. As for the case of White v John Warwick & Co Ltd the court held that the company providing defective product is liable for their negligence. If reasonably sufficient notice is given as to the existence of an exemption clause, then it is accepted by the courts that that clause becomes parts of the contract. The case that set this dictum, and which laid our the guidelines for testing the reasonableness and sufficiency of the notice

However, the House of Lords decided to create a new principle of law that stated everyone has a duty of care to their neighbour, and this abled Donoghue to successfully sue the manufacturer for the damages.” In order to prove negligence and claim damages, the plaintiff has to prove a number of elements to the court. These are: * the defendant owed them a duty of care, * the defendant breached that duty of care, and * they suffered loss or damage as a direct consequence of the breach. As we saw earlier, the first element of the duty of care was created in the Donoghue case. The House of Lords stated that every person owes duty of care to their neighbour.
