Russell Bond & Co., Inc. April 2018  
 
Employment Practices Liability
 
#MeToo    -    Harvey Weinstein    -    Matt Lauer    -    Kevin Spacey    -    Roy Moore
 
What do these all have in common?

They are probably going to increase Employment Practices Liability exposures. 
And not just for your clients, but for your agency as well!
 
Based on a survey of human resource professionals conducted by HRCI (HR Certification Institute), these professionals believe that sexual harassment complaints in the work place will likely increase in 2018.  79% feel that sexual harassment prevention training will be considered "high priority", up from 40% in 2017.  And 85% feel that HOW a company handles a harassment complaint will be key to reducing liability.

The recent publicized allegations have raised awareness and triggered more actions, which will likely increase the number of cases reported over the short term.  In the long term, organizations should be putting more emphasis on risk management and prevention.  Although most EPL policies currently contain some type of risk management services, but wouldn't you rather be certain it does?
