Former Employee vs. Small Business

October 25th, 2012 by JBWK

Bloomberg’s Businessweek offers some sound advice for small business owners facing legal threats by former employees. First, from a business owner, the delightful description of being on the receiving end of those threats:

For anybody who goes through the blood, sweat, and tears of starting a business, when someone comes along with an attorney whose No. 1 goal is to extract money, it produces stress and lack of sleep.

There is, however, some very good advice, including:

  • Don’t ignore it
  • Check if your insurance will cover you
  • Call your attorney
  • Save all documents that could be relevant
  • Don’t try to settle the score personally
