ONLINE CONTRACT LAW ESSENTIALS TRAINING COURSE
Contracts are the primary means by which business is conducted. A contract — whether regarding a purchase, employment, sales, marketing, distribution or other situation — serves as the "private law", if you will, between or among parties involved. The law looks at contracts as an important tool in that it gives parties the opportunity to define their own contractual relationships. Whatever parties agree to (within broad legal limits) defines respective rights and obligations for the length of the contract.
Responsible for abiding by the terms of a contract, management and employees must understand how contracts are properly created and legally enforced. Failure to form a valid contract or binding themselves or their organization to a contract inadvertently can lead to critical consequences.
