According to several federally mandated labor laws, all employers with one or more employees are required to post several notices regarding minimum wage, health benefits, safety regulations, discrimination, etc. Innovative monitors labor law requirements to keep you up to date on all the posting requirements.
Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI)
EPLI is a key component of a comprehensive loss control strategy that protects you against claims (including lawsuits and administrative proceedings such as EEOC charges) filed by employees, former employees, and applicants. With Innovative as a PEO client, you will have coverage under our master EPLI policy.
EPLI can help cover the following potential liabilities:
• Wrongful terminations

• Discrimination in the work place
• Sexual harassment
• Other employment liability issues
Utilize proactive advice focused on significantly reducing violations of employment laws such as EEOC and DOL, OSHA, Title VII, Wage and Hour, ADA, and FMLA. Don’t learn the hard way about unemployment laws and the cost of litigation.
