Entrepreneurship is not for everyone. But for those who are driven to see their own ideas and innovations put into action, it is important that they understand that there is a considerable amount of work that must be done beyond the simple execution of a savvy business plan.
One of the most important considerations for a business that maintains a physical workplace environment or retail storefront is the utilization of security personnel and measures that are adequate and appropriate for the nature of the facility. The failure to take the necessary precautions can have drastic adverse repercussions for your company.

Consequences of Insufficient Security
Though common sense dictates that some sort of security is needed, new business owners and employers often fail to fully appreciate the scope of the potential problems that could arise from a lapse. The theft of merchandise is one fairly obvious concern, but violent crime can have a range of serious adverse effects, including:
- Employee injuries – may result in the filing of workers’ compensation claims and potentially lawsuits as well
- Customer or client injuries – likely to result in premises liability or other lawsuits
- Destruction or theft of property – creates needless additional expenses that threaten your financial wellbeing
- Scaring customers away – if there are news reports about crimes committed at your store, customers will most likely be hesitant to come, even if they prefer your product or service
Make sure that you, your company, and your employees are secure. For questions about your potential sources of liability, contact the Des Moines business lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at (877) 327-2600.
