Software Piracy

If an employee is installing unauthorized software copies on company computers or acquiring illegal software through the Internet, your company can be sued for copyright infringement, even if your company’s management was unaware of your employee’s actions. The penalty for using unauthorized software is up to $100,000 per infringed. If charged with a criminal violation, the fine is up to $250,000 per title infringed and up to five years imprisonment.

Repetitive Stress

Preventing Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI) is a key goal of many employers -- and for good reason. "Work-related musculoskeletal disorders are the most widespread occupational health hazard facing our nation today," says Charles N. Jeffries, former Asistant Secretary for Occupational Safety and Health at the U.S. Department of Labor. "The most severe injuries can put people out of work for months and even permanently disable them." (Consumer Healthday)
