ECLASS 28.1 Management
            THE RISKS OF HIRING SALESPEOPLE

INTERNATIONAL CONSIDERATIONS Are there international protections
available for a firm that is producing a product that is based on intellectual
properties? Does the firm need to take any special steps to acquire international
protection of its intellectual property rights?

ECLASS 28.2 Management
            PROTECTING AGAINST WORKPLACE VIOLENCE

INTERNATIONAL CONSIDERATIONS Obtaining and possessing a firearm is
much more restricted in some nations than it is in the United States. What
problems might be caused in a foreign office if a business has an established policy
requiring the presence of an armed guard or a handgun in the manager’s office
area? How should such a policy be tailored to ensure compliance with local laws
and customs?

ECLASS 28.3 Management
            SHOULD AN EMPLOYER HAVE AN EMPLOYEE
HANDBOOK?

INTERNATIONAL CONSIDERATIONS Suppose that an American business
opens a facility in another country. Do U.S. labor laws and employee protection
statutes apply to workers in the foreign facility? Do the laws of the foreign country
apply? Does it make a difference if the employees are American citizens assigned
to the foreign locale, or if they are foreign nationals?
