Webinar Description:
We will discuss an organization’s legal duty to protect its clients from harm, and the often over-looked obligation to protect the organization itself when bad things happen. We will examine elements of the duty owed the client, and how that duty can be reduced and expanded. We then will discuss what can go wrong in the organization’s operations, and how the organization can and should prepare for those circumstances. A brief scenario, taken from a recent lawsuit, will allow us to further explore these two prongs of a sound risk management program.
