If you own and operate a Texas business, you face certain risks. Some of these risks are directly related to hiring and maintaining employees. What would happen if an employee at your organization filed a sexual harassment charge against you or a fellow employee? What would you do if a former employee filed a wrongful termination suit or if a class action concerning age discrimination were brought against your company? An employment practices liability insurance (EPLI) policy from Comaltex Insurance can help to protect your business and you personally in the event of such legal action.
The state of Texas does not require businesses to carry EPLI. In fact, many companies choose not to carry this coverage. That’s fine as long as no one files suit against you concerning employment practices or your working environment. However, in our litigious society, a lot of businesses have learned that a little protection goes a long way toward helping an organization recover from employment-related lawsuits.
Comaltex Insurance works with a variety of for-profit and non-profit organizations to provide affordable, effective insurance packages and risk-management strategies. We’ll take the time to learn about your business, the work you do and population you serve. Then we’ll work together with you to find workable solutions to help you create a more inviting and productive work environment. Many times, setting hiring standards and providing better staff training can help organizations minimize employment liability risks.
Of course, insurance is an important part of commercial risk-management. Your Comaltex Insurance agent will work with you to write an EPLI policy that fits your organization’s current needs, but we won’t stop there. We’ll stand by you as your business grows and changes. Come to us anytime for policy reviews or an updated risk assessment.
