Sometimes the way we communicate either gets lost in translation or does not have the desired effect. In most cases, you can laugh off the misunderstanding or address any hurt feelings the other person has, but occasionally, the other person may interpret your words or actions in a way you never intended.
This situation can represent big problems for you as the owner of a veterinary practice if an applicant or employee takes legal action against you because they felt you discriminated against them or they felt you acted inappropriately. Regardless of your views on the incident, a lawsuit can cause financial ruin for your business without protection. Make sure your veterinary clinic is protected with an employment practices liability insurance policy with Vetinsure.
We are dedicated to helping protect veterinary hospitals which is why we offer Employment Practices Liability (EPL) to help our clients not only endure but prevail in the event they face an employment-related claim for acts including:
