A Denver Employment Practices Liability Update
We all remember Biff Tannen from the movie series Back to the Future. Biff was the bully who liked to push people around in high school. Does your firm have a grown-up Biff Tannen? Even with the most effective hiring practices, you might end up with an employee who can create a serious employment practice liability issue.
Employment claims can be distracting and emotional for business owners who may feel betrayed by employees they have known and trusted. Claims can take more than a year to resolve and many businesses suffer while owners deal with a claim. Having an office bully can be distracting to employees and can even reduce productivity.
Here Is a Quote from One Business Owner:
“It was the hassle factor that was so distracting. The entire ordeal caused a lot of sleepless nights.” — Owner of a bottling plant
