Employment Practices Liability (EPL) Protection Tips

In order to stay in compliance with the ever changing employment law landscape, every practice owner should implement certain policies and procedures. In order to manage your potential exposure, here are some guidelines you may want to follow:
  • Have an update-to-date employee manual.
  • Review the employee manual with the entire team regularly, and enforce the policies fairly and consistently.
     
  • Do not promise what you cannot, will not, or may decide later, not to honor.
     
  • Maintain detailed employee personnel files that include current copies of any professional licenses.
     
  • Make sure to document verbal warnings and any discussions about job performance.
     
  • Conduct annual performance reviews that are retained in the employee's personnel file.
     
  • Do not discuss employee issues with other employees.
     
  • Document yearly OSHA and HIPAA trainings.

In today's complex employment law environment, practice owners must be proactive in order to avoid potential liability exposure.
