There are a dozen very common small business lawsuits in which an employee files a legal claim against an employer. Among them is workplace injury.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 3.2 million work-related injuries and illnesses were reported in 2009. Employers purchase liability and worker’s compensation insurance to pay expenses of a employee injured on the job. Employers are usually sued if they challenge a worker’s compensation claim or if the employer’s negligence or intentional action led to the worker’s injury.
