A common employee complaint filed centers around wage and hour violations including wage calculation, overtime calculation and job classifications. Employees file wage and hour lawsuits accusing employers of misclassifying employment status or miscommunicating an employee’s eligibility to receive overtime.
Employment Practice Liability
Employment Practices Liability Insurance, otherwise known as EPLI, is insurance that helps protect you against claims from your employees that result from the general conduct of your business. Employers may face a number of claims and lawsuits over wrongful termination, discrimination, workplace harassment and retaliation. And a business owner doesn’t even have to be in the wrong to be sued. The right insurance to cover defense costs and damages related to various employment-related claims can be critically important to help protect business assets.
