Employment Practices Liability
Your people are the heartbeat of your business. However, employing workers comes with its complexities. On top general considerations, such as payroll and working arrangements, there is the ever-evolving intricacy of employment law. This is where Employment Practices Liability Insurance comes in.
Many Government acts now exist to ensure workers are treated fairly, giving employees the right to claim if they are or feel they are being treated unfairly. Disputes could be lodged against a company on the grounds of holiday and sickness entitlements, trade union membership rights, disability or wage disputes, invasion of privacy, sexual harassment, emotional distress, false imprisonment, maternity or paternity pay and flexible working arrangements.
Employment disputes can not only be a confusing and lengthy process for employers, but they can also have huge monetary implications. Employment Practices Liability Insurance can protect you against the financial impact of a claim.
