HR 209 – How to Prevent Employee Lawsuits (Fall 2019 CharterSAFE Workshop Presentation)
A best practice recommendation for California charter schools is to have Employment Practice Liability Insurance (EPLI) coverage. Generally speaking, underlying employee relations issues may lead to EPLI claims and employee lawsuits. This course will explore the components of EPLI coverage offered by CharterSAFE to our members and the types of workplace issues (harassment, discrimination, retaliation, wage & hour violations, etc.) which may lead to EPLI claims and employee lawsuits. To underscore the need for EPLI coverage and a proactive approach to workplace issues, we will conduct a historic review of EPLI claims filed by CharterSAFE members from 2016 through September 2019. We will provide an overview of Human Resources support services provided by CharterSAFE to our members (at not cost) which may help reduce future EPLI claims. And last, we will discuss best practice recommendations to help California charter schools prevent future EPLI claims and employee lawsuits.
