Employment Litigation is at an all time high, and so what happens if you or your company is sued? How much will you end up paying in litigation costs?
Well, for starters, “If your case has just one plaintiff and no horrible facts (e.g., TMZ-type allegations, exec wrongdoers, etc.), expect to pay between $0 and $50,000. That covers about a third of all cases.”
It is important for businesses to do what they can to avoid litigation costs. There are any number of ways to be proactive in reducing the likelihood of these suits as well as their chances of success. Some ways include supervisor training, employee training, and regular drug and alcohol screenings.
