Loss control questionnaire: Employment practices liability

Examine your risk

Employment practices liability is a growing area of concern for organizations across the country. Lawsuits related to employment practices are on the rise. In fact, by some estimates, one out of every five cases in civil courts is an employment-related lawsuit.

Employment practice claims are among the most costly and time-consuming issues an employer can face. What’s more, these claims pose a serious risk to an organization’s stability, reputation, and bottom line. In fact, the average cost of defending and settling an employment law case is $160,000.

No organization is immune to these exposures. Today, employment practices liability claims can originate from lawsuits related to, but not limited to:

  • Wrongful termination
  • Discrimination
  • Harassment and sexual harassment
  • Breach of contract
  • Retaliation
  • Mismanagement of employee benefit plans
  • Failure to employ or promote
  • Deprivation of career opportunity
  • Wrongful discipline

Thankfully, a proactive approach to risk management goes a long way toward protecting organizations from employment practices liability claims.
