Employment-related claims are a standard hazard of being an employer. In fact, businesses with fewer than 100 employees can expect an employment practices claim every three years.1 Defending a claim, even when baseless, is not painless or cost-free. Average settlement awards are more than $250,000 and average judgments are upwards of $450,000.2 TriNet helps you prevent, cover, and mitigate claims with a comprehensive program.
