(pronounced im-PYU-neh-tee)

There are so many “i” words that it’s easy to get them confused, and this one is no exception. It’s meaning is similar to immunity in that it means exemption or freedom from harm, punishment, or loss. In a legal sense, it means not being punished for a crime or misdemeanor committed, but we hope you never get yourself in that situation.

Example: Jack, the architect intern, had such an inflated ego that he wrongly assumed that he could insult his new employers with impunity.
