Businesses enter contracts, manufacture goods, sell services and products, and engage in employment and labor practices activities that must all adhere to certain laws and regulations. Recognizing and evaluating legal issues is a fundamental skill that will help you navigate commercial relationships and avoid potential problems in the business world.
