Employment Practices Liability Exposures Discussion Updated in Construction Risk Management


This release of Construction Risk Management updates the employment practices liability exposures discussion.

Employment practices liability is a broad term that encompasses virtually any claim made by an employee against his or her employer for what he or she considers to be wrongful treatment. Founded in allegations such as discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, slander, invasion of privacy, retaliation, bullying, etc., employment practices liability represents a significant financial exposure for American businesses.

Employment practices liability arises from one of two sources: common law and statutes. Common law exposures are defined by the courts, and statutory exposures are defined by legislators under state and federal statutes that stipulate certain actions employers must take, or are forbidden to take, regarding employment. "Employment Practices Liability Claims" examines both sources of liability, as well as methods for reducing exposure to these claims.
