Because employment practices (EPL) claims continues to increase, companies – large and small – are faced with catastrophic loss exposure. Any employer, no matter how effective its employment practices and procedures, is vulnerable to employment-related liabilities.
Employment Practices Violations include:
- Employment-related misrepresentation(s) to an employee or applicant for employment with the company
- Employment-related libel, slander, humiliation, defamation and invasion of privacy, including the giving of negative or defamatory statements in connection with an employee reference
- Wrongful failure to employ or promote
- Wrongful deprivation of career opportunity with the company or wrongful demotion or negligent employee evaluation
- Wrongful termination
- Wrongful discipline
- Failure to grant tenure
