There has been a push recently to hire our veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. We’re all for it. However, being in the insurance business usually has us thinking “what could possibly go wrong” and protecting our customers from that outcome.
That leads us to the question: If a business hires a veteran over a non-veteran, has the non-veteran been unfairly discriminated against? That will probably be answered in court, and in the process it will likely cost employers a pile of money in legal fees and damages. Employes can protect themselves from these potentially crushing legal costs by purchasing Employers Practices Liability Insurance. Remember, the person filing a lawsuit might be right or they might be wrong, but the lawsuit itself is going to cost money either way.
