Risks surrounding employment practices continue to evolve and pose difficult challenges for risk managers. Sound policies depend upon identifying these risks and developing mitigation practices to address those exposures. For example, what should a company’s policy be when an employee is arrested for driving under the influence? Does the company fire the employee? Does it matter whether the employee drives a truck or a car or whether the job requires the individual to drive? What happens if the infraction took place during company hours versus on personal time? How does the company handle an employee who was cited for texting or talking on the phone while driving? What if the employee was involved in an accident? Can a company quantify risks associated with different employment practices? In this session, the panel will discuss these issues including the risks associated with different policies as well as what kinds of things a company can do to mitigate these exposures.
