    "restricted" or "limited"?

    Hello,

    would you please say to me, which sentence of the followings would you rather use?

    The liability of limited partners is limited to the amount of money they invest.
    The liability of limited partners is restricted to the amount of money the invest.

    Meaning:

    a lazy worker is a liability to the company.

    Does a lazy worker have the only liability of the company?
    Is a lazy worker a sleeping partner or what does it mean?

    Thanks a lot in advance and all the best,
    Dany

    We talk of limited liability companies, so I'd go for the first, but the second also sounds fine.

    The lazy worker is different- here it means that they are a problem and cost the company money because they don't do enough work; it has nothing to do with share capital, etc.
