Every business and businessperson need parameters for operation.
What is legal? Where can I find the laws I need to know? How do I
make decisions about legal conduct that, personally, is morally or
ethically troublesome to me? What if I have a disagreement with a
customer, employee, or shareholder? How can I resolve our differences?
What forums are available for airing disputes?
This portion of the book explains what law is, where it can be
found, how it is applied, and how legal disputes are resolved. Beyond
the legal environment of a business, what is its ethical posture? Beyond
operating a business within the bounds of the law, is the manager
making ethical choices and behaving honorably in the conduct of
business? Law and ethics are inextricably intertwined. A commitment
to both is necessary and helpful in ensuring smooth operations
and successful business performance.
Business: Its Legal, Ethical, and Judicial Environment

Most people understand the law through their own experiences with it. More often
than not, people are exposed to law through some personal problem. Some are exposed
to law through traffic tickets. Others encounter the law when a problem arises
with a landlord or lease. Many wonder about their rights when their e-mail is flooded
with advertisements. Their understanding of the law may be limited by the anger they
feel about the spam, their landlord, the traffic ticket. However, if there were no traffic
laws, the roads would be a study in survival of the fittest; and, in the case of a
troublesome landlord, the law provides a remedy when parties do not meet their
agreed-upon obligations. We are just now grappling with the issue of spam and its related
technological and privacy issues, and new laws are being developed and enforced
to cover those who invade our electronic in-boxes.
