Top Employment Practices Liability Claims

Did you know that our beautiful state has been ranked second for the state with the most employment practices liability insurance litigation cases? As a business owner, it is imperative that you safeguard your organization from these unfortunately common lawsuits. In doing so, you must understand exactly what your responsibilities are and obtain an employment practices liability insurance policy. Without this essential form of insurance, you leave your entire organization vulnerable to harm.

In understanding your employment practices liability risks, you must know the most common litigation cases that affect your region. The most common claims include illegal background checks, unpaid internships, and health-related employment discrimination such as pregnancy. Since the cost of these claims continue to rise year after year, the length it takes to resolve these claims are increasing accordingly.

In order to reduce your vulnerabilities of being hit with an employment practices liability claim, you must have sound employment practices in place to ensure that all employees and team members comply with rules and regulations. Despite popular belief, this means extending beyond your hiring procedures. Employment practices liability claims can even arise from termination indifferences.

If you are unsure of your responsibility in the hiring, training, termination, or employment processes, please do not hesitate to give us a call. When you are completely in the know, you are better able to handle situations such as these. If a problem does arise, it is imperative that you act and respond immediately, rather than trying to brush off the situation until it becomes serious.
