Over 16 million civil lawsuits are filed annually in the U.S., many of which involve claims of workplace discrimination, retaliation, and wrongful discharge brought about by disgruntled former employees. One third of all employment-related lawsuits involve allegations of wrongful termination (i.e. the decision to terminate was motivated by unlawful retaliation or a discriminatory factor).
According to various studies, companies lose over 60% of all wrongful termination lawsuits, and the average jury award in these lawsuits is $600,000. While the legal doctrine of “at-will employment” in theory allows employers to terminate employment at any time for any reason, various state and federal laws prohibit from terminating an employee because of a discriminatory reason or for exercising their legal rights.
To prevent these costly claims from occurring, employers must implement specific policies, procedures, and documentation practices. In August 2016, the EEOC revised its enforcement guidance on retaliation that includes specific recommendations for employers on how to prevent wrongful termination claims.
Effective best practices recommended by the EEOC and attorneys include publishing an at-will employment policy, publishing an anti-retaliation policy, implementing a progressive discipline procedure, standardizing the termination process, and providing specific training for supervisors and managers.
To help employers prevent costly wrongful termination claims and comply with new EEOC guidance, Personnel Concepts has re-introduced a revised, comprehensive Wrongful Termination Prevention Program. This exclusive compliance solution includes the policies, forms, training materials, attorney recommendations, and best practices needed to prevent and avoid claims of retaliation and discrimination from terminated employees.
Who Needs It
All employers with 1 or more employees on payroll must ensure that their termination process complies with applicable laws.
Prevent Costly Wrongful Termination Lawsuits
The average cost to defend an employment-related lawsuit is $50,000, and the average jury award in wrongful termination cases is $600,000. By complying with the latest EEOC guidelines, communicating essential policies, and thoroughly documenting the termination process, employers can significantly reduce the likelihood that a terminated worker will file a wrongful termination claim.
Create a Line of Defense Against Frivolous Claims
Clearly communicating and thoroughly documenting the terms and conditions of employment, the termination process, and employee performance issues can create a line of defense against frivolous claims brought about by disgruntled former employees.
