    In today’s business climate of corporate transparency and accountability, an organization’s officers and directors face a myriad of employment-related exposures. In the past few years, we’ve experienced an unprecedented number of corporate scandals and have seen directors and officers increasingly held accountable for their actions.

    I have a friend who used to say “never have more personal things in your office than you can tuck under your arm.” He believed in a fast getaway and joked about never wanting to have to pack up a box and be escorted out of the building.
