"My name is Tony Laughlin and have been a client of Shepard Insurance Agency since late 1997. I came to this agency for the purpose of getting lower insurance rates. I not only found lower insurance rates, but I found by far, one the best agents in Ms. Luz Gomez. I unfortuneately have had a few incidents with my vehicles in the past, and I never felt that I was getting anything but top service. The phone calls are returned in very timely manner, and questions are answered as if they knew before they were asked. With the service I receive, I feel like I am their only client. There is no exaggeration in any of these comments, I feel the way I have explained. Thank you Shepard Insurance and a special thanks to Luz Gomez. "

"I discovered Shepard Insurance about 5 years ago, while shopping around for competitive auto insurance policies. Not only were their prices enticing enough to encourage me to sign on with them, but their customer service has been what has kept me a loyal customer for five years. Since that auto policy, I've since purchased a home, and started a new business, both of which are also covered by Shepard. Luz and her team have been great, keeping in step with my every need."

The number of lawsuits filed by workers against their companies alleging improper employment practices is on the rise. We're talking about things like sexual harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination, breach of employment contract, negligent evaluation, failure to employ or promote, wrongful discipline, deprivation of career opportunity, wrongful infliction of emotional distress and mismanagement of employee benefit plans, and the like.

While most suits like these are filed against large corporations, any company with one or more employees can be hit with one. For smaller companies, the costs to defend against one can be financially devastating. For that reason, we recommend that all business owners obtain an Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) policy. EPLI provides protection against many kinds of employee lawsuits, which are typically not covered by workers compensation policies.
