LIBN Article on EPL Insurance Coverage Quotes GreenJune 11, 2018 | |
Scott Green was quoted in a June 8, 2018, Long Island Business News story discussing how harassment cases in the news have shined a spotlight on the need for employment practices liability (EPL) insurance.
Scott noted that, in addition to an EPL insurance policy, employers should take steps to ensure that that the workplace does not inadvertently encourage claims of harassment or discrimination. “You want to have different layers, including good practices and policies, and good communication between management and employees, with effective reporting procedures.” He added that small companies may need EPL insurance just as much as larger corporations. “Being small leaves you more exposed. One claim can destroy your profits for a year and consume a small staff with all the demands of litigation.”
