What Are the Typical Costs to Defend an Employment Practices Lawsuit?

We often advise our clients that even the most upstanding of businesses should consider purchasing Employment Practices Liability. All it takes is an allegation of wrongdoing from a disgruntled former employee for the costs to mount dramatically.

Imagine, you won the case, you’ve been exonerated, but what did this case cost you to prove you did not act wrongly in your employment decision?

Consider the following typical costs associated with a “no judgment” claim.

Administrative Charge

  • Defense of an EEOC or Administrative charge:  $4,000 – $7,000;

Lawsuit Filed Against Your Business

  • Answer the complaint and begin discovery:  $12,000 – $18,000
  • Pretrial filings, preparation, including  motions, responses, document analysis and review, case evaluation, settlement and other related matters:  $20,000 – $30,000
  • Mediation:  $8,000 – $12,000
  • Trial:  $15,000 – $25,000

Total costs range between $69,000 – $107,000  and guess what?  You are the WINNER!  Only imagine the costs should you come out on the short end.

Dealt with Debbie, Brian and Dennis on multiple policies. Excellent service. Subject matter experts in the field. Difference between them other past agents, was that they asked questions on things I didn't even know to ask to ensure I was properly insured with proper amounts. Understood my needs. Having been through the Hurricane experience, I understand the importance of good policy/companies. Many INSUR companies will take your money but won't pay out or support you when times comes. Fortunately, in FL, I had great INSUR company. My point? Definitely want educated agents who are experts and honest. Hands down, best service I ever had, and I was with USAA for 27 yrs. Thank you and appreciate excellent customer service. Definitely recommending them to my family and friends.

We have held our insurance (home, auto and life) through McMichael Insurance for quite a few years upon recommendation from our financial advisor. They are not only honest and helpful but empathic and relatable. Over the years I have had various insurance questions and concerns, and never once have I hesitated to call them. I never feel rushed or leave the conversation feeling like I didn't have my question answered. They are patient as well as reliable. Most recently I have had to file a claim and Dennis was more than willing to take the time to walk me through the process as well as offer personalized advice on the details of how to handle things going forward. I even received a follow up phone call today checking to make sure the process was going smoothly. I couldn't ask for any better service and would highly recommend McMichael Insurance.

I have been with McMichael for many years now and they have always taken care of my needs. Debbie Craft is amazing to work with. I spent over an hour on the phone with her asking question after question and she never tired. She never gave the sense that it was time to move on to the next customer. She followed up when she said she would and delivered just as she said she would. She saved me over $1,000/year. Extremely pleased customer here.

My insurance agent was unavailable-so glad Debbie Craft took my call!. After hearing that my hail damage claim was rejected, she immediatly put me through to her superviser who came to my home to discuss the claim. Thanks to Debbie's initial intervention, I ended up receiving a substantial sum. She also got me a fantastic deal on insurance for my antique car. In both cases her actions were imediate-effeciency should be her middle name!

Dennis and Dawn are amazing to work with. One hopes to never need to file an insurance claim but when it is necessary, I would not want to have to navigate the situations without an advocate! For example, on one occasion, I was rear-ended on the freeway in Columbus during rush hour. When I called the police, I was told that since the vehicles were drivable, no officer would be dispatched. Not knowing what to do, I called my insurance agent, Dennis. Dennis talked with both the other driver and me to document all the necessary information to file the claim. Who does that?? Well, MY insurance agent does that!!And Dawn is a problem solver! When our mortgage was sold to another company, there was a lot of confusion between the banks and our insurance premiums were paid to the wrong bank. Dawn spent a lot of time working through those details to clean up a mess that wasn't of her doing!People will often tell me that they like buying insurance directly without using an agent. For me, that's not an avenue I wish to take. I want the benefit of knowing I have a group of people ready to intervene when (not "if") life happens!

I'm a new customer with McMichael Insurance, transferring from a long-standing relationship with another agent. Making the switch to McMichael's was difficult because of my prior relationship with my tried-and-true agent, but had to be done due to shifts in the market and our needs. Dennis worked with me so thoroughly and with such empathy and patience that I felt I was moving from one caring agency to another. I felt understood and held very competently by Dennis and his team. A big thanks for helping us on this new journey!!
