12 Steps to Avoiding Liability

This workbook is intended to offer helpful guidance to executives and high-level managers of public agencies on how to avoid liability.

Because "winning" is not winning the lawsuit, it's not getting into the lawsuit in the first place. Each of the Steps focuses on actions that an agency can take to avoid situations which commonly lead to or increase liability for public agencies. The Steps are meant to be general guides for quick reference by the executive without legalese or exhaustive detail.
