All the above advice is absolutely on-point. Some advice for when your boss doesn't listen:
The idea is to have your ass completely covered. That's what the paper trail is for. You can term it as "I just want to know exactly what you want and be able to refer to it without bothering you." Signatures are best, but email is often good enough.
I cannot emphasize this part strong enough - Make hardcopies of all email and photocopies of all signed documents, then store them offsite. These are your only protection when the company gets sued and the $h!t starts to roll downhill.
If you're absolutely paranoid, you might even want to talk to a lawyer, just to make sure the jurisdiction you're in doesn't have some crazy laws that would skew the issue.
Then there are Damian modules.... *sigh* ... that's not about being less-lazy -- that's about being on some really good drugs -- you know, there is no spoon. - flyingmoose
I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested
