Learn, Prepare, and Prevent

Hiring, firing, employee evaluations, compensation, family leave, and job descriptions—these and many more everyday human resource decisions have a huge impact on your employees and their welfare. They can also become a breeding ground for complaints and claims for wrongful employment practices.


Employee suits aren’t just a risk for large corporations. Midsized businesses are just as likely to have an employment practices claim filed against them as their larger counterparts. In fact, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) reported that 50% of the discrimination claims filed with the agency were against small and midsized companies.


In practice, many of these companies may be even more vulnerable to employment practices claims than larger companies because they lack the legal department or human resources to guide them through the maze of federal and state regulations that can put them at risk.
