According to HR Coastal, employee lawsuits have increased by 400% over the last twenty years. The average claim takes ten months to resolve with an average of $160,000 in defense settlement costs, which doesn’t even include legal fees. These lawsuits could range from a wide range of human resource practices, including recruiting, hiring, performance appraisal, compensation, health and safety, and labor relations issues.
The company added that almost 50% of all employment cases have retaliation attached to the original discrimination or harassment charge. Retaliation costs include lost pay and benefits, pain and suffering, punitive damages, and the employee’s legal fees as well as your own. These are the reasons why a company must give employment law and compliance attention.
Fortunately, employment lawsuits, especially for small business owners, now have a solution. Businesses can avoid any of these lawsuits by being compliant.
