Discussion Week 6

Discussion Week 6

General managers (GMs) are typically the liaison between executives and staff. While not in charge of the organization itself, the GM still has a responsibility to ensure their direct reports are following legal guidelines and they need to mitigate risks; however, there are times when incidents happen, and the executive team needs to mitigate the legal exposure through public relations (PR).

Search the internet for an event that occurred within the last 5 years in which a company has needed to manage their reputation due to legal exposure. Summarize the incident and answer the following questions in your post:

  • What were the legal issues?
  • How did the PR team mitigate the legal issues?

Cite your sources in APA format so your peers can review the event.
