Take a look at this great informative article written by SBAC member Jeffrey Bunn. The article is about Small-Market Business Owners and the Threat of Personal Liability: How to Protect Yourself When Making Difficult Decisions

“Unfortunately, the termination of a contract – even with good cause – can sometimes lead to a lawsuit. As a result, decision-makers increasingly find themselves targeted individually, even in situations where the issues at stake are corporate in nature. There are, however, ways for owners to protect themselves, including the qualified privilege defense.”
