Re: Legal and liability - using my stamp

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
With all respect, how are the legal issues new territory to the company if
they have been producing plans & calcs?  I trust that I am
mis-understanding.  What type of work does your company do (design
consultant, construction, manufacturer, etc.)?

Doesn't your company already provide professional liability coverage?  If
they don't, I wouldn't recommend staying there.  If they do, I don't see the
need for your own individual coverage.
