Employers today face an ever-increasing number of potential lawsuits in managing their workforce. There are a host of complex federal regulations designed to protect employees from a long list of discriminating practices. Emerging trends such as class-action claims render large, high-visibility verdicts and settlements. It’s a constantly changing landscape, and all of this can add to confusion for employers and greater exposures. Avoiding employment-related claims seems like a monumental feat for many. The key is in having strong human resources practices in place; keeping up to date with federal, state, and local regulations; and having a robust Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) solution that will respond in the event of a claim.
