Why is a dirty business a legal liability?
“Dirty” is a relative term because what is dirty to one person may not be dirty to another. However, in the world of business, OSHA is the one who defines what “dirty” is by their occupational safety and health standards.

Lawyers see these situations as easy wins and will put business owners into bankruptcy overnight.
