Training Overview

Reduce employment liability at your school. Learn how to address common legal issues during COVID-19.

Despite attempting to address concerns in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools are increasingly the subject of employment practices liability (EPL) claims. These claims often focus on potential health risks and discrimination claims for employees raising COVID-19 concerns.

To avoid lawsuits and formal complaints, you must ensure adequate safety protocols and sufficient insurance coverage. Even beyond COVID-19 issues, employees may still pursue EPL claims related to privacy, harassment, discrimination, and other matters.
