What are the Benefits of an EPLI policy?
Corporate leaders, HR departments, and even small- and medium-sized business owners know that even when they do everything right, the risk of a lawsuit can loom any time an employee believes the company’s decision to — or not to — hire, promote, compensate, or fire him or her is a violation of their protected rights.
Unfortunately, the allegation does not have to be true. It just must be asserted, and a lawsuit may be underway.
These circumstances disrupt business, damage reputations, and hurt morale, and can be mitigated with an EPLI policy that manages risks by safeguarding organizations from wrongful employment claims.
Other EPLI policy benefits include:
- Proactive risk management strategies and human resources consulting
- Access to extensive legal resources and skilled defense attorneys
- Timely responses to lawsuits
- Protection from large jury verdicts that could severely injure or bankrupt the company
When lawsuits cannot be avoided, our team of experienced litigators realistically assesses the company’s risk and provides targeted advice for possible settlement and litigation strategies to successfully obtain low-cost settlements at the early stages of the litigation, effectively minimizing our clients’ exposure.
We have established expertise and experience in defending employment law claims that are designed to help provide end-to-end protection for all industries and organizations.
That includes avoiding any potential crossover lawsuits by assuring they are addressed, defended, and closed before they can make their way into the courtroom.
What Does an EPLI Policy Cost in California?
The cost of an EPLI policy varies based on many factors, including the type of business, the number of employees, and various risk factors, including previous lawsuits stemming from allegations of employment practice violations.
