Today, employers are more at risk of having a claim filed against them by employees who feel their rights were violated. And while you do your best to implement the right HR policies and train your leadership team to minimize these potential issues, they can still happen.
Employee Practice Insurance is helpful for protecting you in lawsuits involving:
- Sexual Harassment
- Wrongful Termination
- Mismanagement of Employee Benefits
- Infliction of Emotional Distress
- Breach in Employee Contract
Whether your company is at fault or you’re wrongfully accused, employment practice insurance will cover you both ways if a lawsuit ensues.
