Man attacks NV businesses using ADA standards

Business owners in Nevada have a responsibility to the public to make sure their facilities are accessible to people with disabilities. According to the Department of Justice, the federal law that regulates this is the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Network takes action in sexual harassment cases

To protect their businesses from sexual harassment claims, companies should have policies and procedures in place that directly address the process for handling complaints. From training to a reporting system and investigation protocol, employers must be prepared to actively combat this threat to safety, morale and productivity. 

Understanding deceptive trade practices

Consumers in Nevada should be aware of the concept of deceptive trade practices when purchasing a service or product in the state. Although there are laws in place to help protect the purchaser, the best defense is offense. Knowing common scams and avoiding them is the best way for customers to stay protected. 

What should I do when an employee files a complaint?

When one of the employees at your Nevada business comes forward with a complaint of misconduct, you should be prepared to take it seriously. With a system in place for receiving employee complaints, your workers can avoid feeling intimidated or embarrassed about coming forward with an issue. You should also be prepared to follow through with an investigation so that no employee's rights are violated. 

Breach of contract lawsuit filed against Nevada company

With every contract a Nevada business signs, it is putting its reputation and its financial stability on the line. A failure to perform any portion of the agreement could be construed as a breach of contract, and litigation over such a claim could be costly. Companies must ensure that the language of the agreement identifies roles and duties, as well as other factors such as delays, so that there is no question that all their responsibilities have been fulfilled to the letter.

Sweat equity: When partner contributions are hard to quantify

When two business partners in Nevada are facing a parting of ways, getting out of the agreement without losing everything may be challenging. A detailed partnership agreement should include a good exit strategy, the Huffington Post notes, and this could make the difference between business litigation and a successful split. One of the factors that will affect how much each partner is entitled to may be the contributions each made to the company, and this does not necessarily mean how much capital each invested.

Patent trolls may be limited by U.S. Supreme Court ruling

A new idea can be exciting for inventors in Nevada, but discovering there is already a patent for it can destroy hopes of creating a new income source. According to Reuters, patent trolls hold many of these patents but have no actual product. Instead, they make their money by suing inventors who develop a way to turn the idea into a reality, and then accepting a settlement when the defendants find they cannot afford a protracted court battle that often takes place in another state.

What Nevada statutes have to say about deceptive trade practices

When a company lies to consumers in Las Vegas, it may result in damages for those who make the purchases, and the effects can be disastrous for other businesses, too. There are federal laws defining the parameters of this behavior, and Nevada state law also provides details about what constitutes deceptive trade practices.

Forgery claim may ruin art dealer’s career

When an expert in a field impugns the character or skill of another in a public forum, it could cause damages for a Nevada business owner in more than one arena. Just the loss of trust or respect from others within the industry could ruin the company. However, proving that defamation occurred, either through a written or spoken statement, and that it cost actual, physical damages may be challenging for anyone seeking to restore a professional reputation.
