When (if) I'm in charge of a company, there'll be a section in the handbook on how to do your job, followed by, "Dave's Company's policy on everything else is 'Don't do anything illegal on company time or property, and you'd better have a really good explanation if you give someone a reason to sue us'."
Attorneys, insurance companies, and government regulators largely tell them what their policies shall be.
We cannot move forward until we come to grips with fear of lawsuits and regulation.
I for one would gladly give up some of my rights to sue in exchange for greater personal freedom.
