Protect Your Business from Employee Lawsuits

Universal 1st

I

n today’s job market, employees may resist leaving their workplace, however, that doesn’t mean that trouble is not brewing.

We all hear of cases where workers have found reasons to sue the current or past employer over seemingly innocent behavior. We encourage all our clients to stay current with employment law and best practices.

Potential liable behavior by executives, workers, managers and supervisors includes:

  • Sexual Harassment
  • Wrongful Termination
  • Discrimination by:
    • Age
    • Disability
    • Equal Pay/Compensation
    • Harassment
    • Pregnancy
    • Race/Color
    • Religion
    • Retaliation
    • Sex

Understanding and preventing these types of risks may seem difficult.  For example, according to the EEOC, sexual harassment doesn’t mean “simple teasing, offhand comments or isolated incidents that are not very serious, but it [may be sexual harassment] when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or when it results in an adverse employment decision…”

Officers, directors, owners, managers, and supervisors can set the tone for the company culture that prohibits behavior that creates a risk to the company. Let Universal 1st help you minimize your total exposure.
