Greater enforcement by the EEOC and other regulatory agencies, broader legislation and an increasingly demanding workforce have put employment practices in the spotlight. How well you communicate with your workers, your best practices and commitment to compliance, and the insurance safety net in place determine how effective you will be in addressing the costs that may result from an employee lawsuit.

Protect Your Business Against Employee-Related Lawsuits

Headline after headline today highlights the rise in employee lawsuits — from wrongful termination suits to discrimination, sexual harassment, and wage and hour disputes. Some industries are harder hit than others, such as the food or hospitality industries and retailers where you have thousands of hourly employees. But all businesses are open to lawsuits from employees.
