  • What is Employment Practices Liability?
    Employment Practices Liability insurance (EPLI) will provide protection for you the employer from claims made by employees, former employees, or even potential employees. This coverage may also protect directors and officers of your firm.
    EPLI Coverage includes:
    discrimination (age, sex, race, disability, etc.)
    wrongful termination of employment
    sexual harassment
    other employment-related allegations

  • Today’s claims are as much about how people feel about their boss or employer as they are about a specific injury or wrong.
    If your employees trust your company and leaders, they are more likely to work smarter and safer.
    Minimize your risk by improving
    your hiring practices!

    CONDUCT A THOROUGH INTERVIEW
    Do not make a hiring decision based on first impression or personal feelings you acquire during the interview process.
    Ask the candidate the question, “Have you ever felt you were being treated unfairly at your current/previous jobs?”
    Inquire the same question to his/her references, asking “What did ___ tell you felt unfair to him at his last job?”

  • ADMINISTER SKILL TESTS
    Can your job candidate really perform? Does he/she have the knowledge it takes to jump-start into the position?
    Test your candidate with measurable objectives.

    REQUIRE A PRE-PLACEMENT PHYSICAL EXAM
    You may want to make a conditional job offer. As it applies to your business model, a qualified local occupational medicine clinic may supply a pre-hire physical, including a drug test.
    Consider mentioning this in your job ad—you’ll end up saving your time by deterring questionable candidates.

  • REQUIRE EACH EMPLOYEE TO SIGN “DECLARATION OF NO INJURY” ON A REGULAR BASIS
    Anytime an employee is injured, immediately refer him to your company’s occupational medicine physician.
    It’s wise to consider paying all first-aid related expenses directly rather than submitting small claims to the workers compensation carrier.

  • BE SURE EACH EMPLOYEE IS IN THE CORRECT JOB CLASSIFICATION TO ENSURE WORKERS COMP CLAIMS ARE COVERED
    Too often, misclassifications are discovered at the point of no return—after an incident. Minimize your risk by double-checking this before a claim.
