Staying Safe on the Job - From Discrimination and Harassment Lawsuits
Since well before the #MeToo movement, contractors have been hit with a variety of discrimination, harassment and retaliation lawsuits. Now the risks are even higher. We will review actual claims made against contractors and why they resulted in settlements and verdicts. More importantly, we will discuss how those claims could have been avoided and the resources available to EPLI insureds to keep them safe from employee lawsuits.
