The purpose of this project is to create a plan that demonstrates your understanding of tort law.

This project requires you to identify and analyze legal issues and to make recommendations based on one or more fact patterns. The issues will relate to the concepts covered in weeks 1, 2, and 3 about the legal environment of business and business organizations.

You will also develop skills in developing a PowerPoint presentation, in writing a summary report and using critical thinking to write an in-depth comprehensive analysis.

Outcomes Met by Completing this Assignment:

    • recommend appropriate actions in the business environment based on an understanding of sources of law, legal process and procedure, and available remedies
    • analyze tort rights, obligations, liabilities, and remedies in the business environment

NOTE: All submitted work is to be proper citation of sources as specified in the APA Publication Manual, 6th Ed. (You are held accountable for in-text citations and an associated reference list only).

Read the Following Background Information:

PI plans to headquarter the business in commercial space in a local shopping center. The PI headquarters will include private business offices, a reception area, and a conference meeting and planning space to which potential and existing customers will be invited to discuss proposals for painting jobs, paint products, and to complete contracts for painting jobs. The business space will be open to the public to collect information and inquire about PI services, examine paint displays, and view photos and exhibits from ongoing and past painting jobs.

The shopping center in which PI will be headquartered is busy and heavily trafficked with customers every day. The PI owners are concerned about potential accidents on the store property and other liabilities that could arise with customers and employees.

At the direction of your supervisors at BC, you are tasked to develop a plan to identify and minimize potential tort risks that PI faces in its public retail store operations.

PI owners will use the plan to refine policies and procedures to prevent and/or minimize liabilities for PI in the retail facility.


For this project, you will write a plan to be presented in a PowerPoint presentation.

There is no set number of slides but include a title page and a reference page. Use the note section to discuss, explain and support the ideas and conclusions presented in the presentation. The notes must be complete, clear and comprehensive and submitted with the Power Point in order to receive full credit.

The plan focuses on potential tort liabilities (except product liability, which is not included in this project.)

The Power Point presentation will:

A. identify and describe specific tort liabilities that PI could face in its retail store operations;

B. develop and explain policies and/or procedures PI could implement to prevent or minimize these tort risks;

C. evaluate and discuss how PI owners should orient employees to apply these policies and/or procedures to prevent or minimize identified tort risks.

You should use only assigned resources available in the classroom for the project.

Use in text citations, as needed.

Include a References list of cited resources.

Label each part of the Power Point as follows:

A. Potential Tort Liabilities

B. Policies and Procedures to Minimize Tort Risks

C. Employee Orientation

Review the Plan

Thoroughly read the presentation to ensure all required elements are present. Use the grading rubric to ensure that you gain the most points possible for this assignment.

Proofread for spelling and grammatical issues, and third person writing.

    • Read the Power Points presentation aloud as a first measure;
