If you have ever faced a difficult situation with an employee, you know how quickly it can turn into a lawsuit. Where employees formerly complained around the water fountain, now they hire labor attorneys to go after you and your practice. Whether the issue involves hiring, firing, pay, benefits, contracts, harassment, or just a bad feeling, the effect on your practice can be devastating if the employee seeks legal action.
Gracey-Backer, Inc. is pleased to announce an excellent new Employment Practices Protection Policy from USLI, an A.M. Best rated A++ carrier, owned by Berkshire Hathaway Company.
