More Services for Members!
Did you know that 20 percent of all liability claims incurred by ASCIP members are related to employment practices and that each claim costs an average of $62,000? These claims are costly to litigate, time-consuming to defend for district staff and may involve an award of attorney fees.
Given this exposure, ASCIP now offers assistance to members to help prevent these types of employment related claims. Not only does ASCIP offer the Human Resources (HR) Hotline for members to ask questions of an employment practices attorney at no cost to the member, but now we also offer members HR assessments and consultation services. These new services include determining current level of human resources compliance with state and federal requirements, reviewing practices and procedures, including those used for hiring, interviewing and completing reference checks, as well as, assisting with policy, program or HR Handbook development, again at no cost to ASCIP members.
Please contact your ASCIP Risk Services consultant or call (562) 404-8029 should you have any questions or if you would like discuss how these services can assist your district avoid costly employment practices litigation.
