job security:

... an expression which generally means being free from the fear of job loss. Activities surrounding job security can be double-edged sword. For example, continuing education and training to keep current with technological changes that affect one's job can be a smart thing to do. On the other hand, participating in a group effort to keep jobs in place beyond the point where there is reason for them to exist can create conflicting or contrasting positions between employees and employersdashnot a good situation! There are two truths that job holders must understand: (1) the voice of the customer speaks loudest in the long term; and, (2) independence from the fear is better achieved through a certain amount of free-agent attitude and positioning rather than going along with the politics of job welfare.

spacer
job welfare:

... application of supplemental financial or other aid provided by a source outside of an employer's control which sustains an employee's work assignment or position; support provided to retain a type of job within an enterprise for which there is no longer a purpose. Retention of a union fireman in the cab of a diesel locomotive is a classic example of an worker on job welfare. One course of opportunity for those who face job insecurity (see the meaning of job security) due to changes in the industry or field in which they work is to pursue the entrepreneurial spirit. See Appendix E of the glossary you are using.

spacer
joint and several liability:

... a situation in which two or more parties are liable for repayment of a debt or obligation and a creditor can be compensated from them either individually or jointly.

spacer
joint venture:

... an undertaking involving risk in which two are more parties agree to face the potential uncertainty of shared loss in the hope of shared profit.

spacer
judgment lien:

... a purely statutory general lien (the legal right to keep or sell someone else's property as a security for a debt) on real and personal property belonging to a debtor.

spacer
judicial foreclosure:

... a means by which a mortgagee's (borrower's) right to redeem is taken away through a court-supervised sale of real property.

spacer
junk mail:

... postal material delivered but disposed of as trash by the recipient; worthless solicitations and marketing refuse handled in a postal system; a mass mailing that only financially benefits the go-between, such as an advertising agency, because it produces no significant return for its sender, the advertiser, and is trashed by recipients; bulk mail that wastes resources. Junk e-mail is defined in essentially the same ways, except it includes spam and other electronic distributions by cyberthugs. Junk emails are a serious problem for Internet users.

spacer
jurat:

... a clause written at the bottom of an affidavit by a notary public stating when, where and before whom the affidavit was sworn.

spacer
jurisdiction:

... the range of legal authority or power to act to enforce or pronounce judgments in a given area; an area defined by the authority granted to an individual or group with power to judge and/or enforce.

spacer

define just-in-time ... a distribution strategy that delivers an item just as it is needed
