Employment Practices Liability

Like all employers, insurance agencies face the very real possibility of employment-related lawsuits brought by disgruntled employees or ex-employees.

These lawsuits include allegations of:

  • Wrongful termination
  • Sexual harassment
  • Discrimination based on sex, age, handicap or race

Many of these causes of action arise out of federal laws regulating employment, such as:

  • Civil Rights Act of 1966
  • Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967
  • Rehabilitation Act of 1973
  • Civil Rights Act of 1991
  • Family Leave Act of 1991
