High-Risk Employees: Avoiding Pitfalls and Protecting the Company

By Hoge Fenton | 04.11.2019 | Speaking Engagements & Firm Events

We often say that employees are a company’s greatest asset but also its greatest source of risk. Particularly with the #MeToo movement, we have seen a rise in claims for workplace harassment, retaliation, and discrimination. Often companies see these situations develop over time, well before the employee files a lawsuit. What can you do to manage the situation, resolve the issue, avoid escalation, and escape a lawsuit? And if your company does find itself in a lawsuit, what can you do about it? As the adage goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” ​ Join us for an engaging seminar co-sponsored by Hoge Fenton, Bozzuto & Associates Insurance Services, Brown & Riding Insurance Services Inc., and The Livermore Valley Chamber of Commerce on managing high-risk employees, preventing lawsuits, and insuring against costly litigation through Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI).
