Human Resources and Compliance

  • Pre-employment background checks (for a nominal fee)

  • On-site and telephone support available
Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI)
It pays to be protected. Which is why SOI offers Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) coverage to our customers.
The question for any organization is no longer whether it will face an employment practices claim, but rather how much such a claim will cost them - not only in terms of money, but also "soft" costs like damage to reputation and brand image, company morale and the business owner's time and peace of mind.
EPLI is a key component of a comprehensive loss control strategy that protects you against claims (including lawsuits and administrative proceedings such as EEOC charges) filed by employees, former employees, and applicants for employment alleging discrimination (such as on the basis of race, age, ethnicity, religion, gender, and disability), harassment (such as sexual harassment), wrongful termination, illegal retaliation, and wrongful failure to hire.

SOI believes that EPLI coverage is just one component of a comprehensive loss control strategy. The best way to minimize the risk and damage of employment practices claims is to avoid having them. As a customer of SOI you have access to our entire range of HR services. SOI can help you institute the right policies and procedures to help you make good hiring decisions and address problems before they become lawsuits, as well as provide training to your managers and supervisors. Perhaps most importantly, you can call our HR experts any time you need advice or a sounding board.

At we strive to streamline the PEO selection process so that you, the small business owner, can escape the bordom of HR as quickly and painlessly as possible.
