Employment Practices Liability
Your single greatest risk of lawsuits is from your employees. Small businesses can rarely afford the high costs associated with an employment lawsuit. Even a frivolous claim can cost an employer tens of thousands of dollars in attorney fees.
Every day, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission receives some 200 new employment practices liability complaints alleging discrimination based on race, sex, national origin, religion, retaliation, age and disability. Even if an employment-related claim is baseless, defense costs can be significant.
Claims involving employment issues comprise a significant amount of today's civil litigation. No organization is immune from employment practices liability litigation.
