Making employment decisions can be challenging, and uninformed decisions can result in expensive employment practice liability (EPL) claims. PACIF’s EPL Referral Program helps member municipalities avoid making costly employment errors with the benefit of free and timely legal assistance from qualified Vermont attorneys.
EPL Referral Program Basics
- Call us at 800-649-7915 or email EPLreferral@vlct.org and ask for an EPL referral. We will quickly follow up and briefly discuss your situation with you. When warranted, we will refer your issue to one of the vetted legal practices most suited to your current situation.
- The attorney will contact you promptly — a critical element when time is of the essence.
- PACIF will cover the cost of up to three hours of legal assistance provided under this program. Occasionally more will be covered if just a small amount of additional legal work is needed. New in 2021: when a matter involves a termination, PACIF will pay for up to eight hours in all.
- If you implement this attorney’s advice and are served notice of suit, PACIF will waive your EPL deductible.
This PACIF program continues to grow every year. Members who have used it say it provides exceptional value and, more importantly, helps them make well-informed decisions that greatly reduce the potential for employment practice liability claims.
