Taxpayers and Employee Lawsuits


As I have noted before, a substantial number of MDV's have governmental entities on the losing end, a burden which is ultimately shifted to taxpayers. An article from the Northjersey.com website, Harassment suits cost N.J. taxpayers $30 million shows just what that impact can be as it surveys the state of employment law litigation in the Garden State. Actually, one of those most impacted is the insurer of a number of municipalities, the Municipal Excess Liability Fund. That there is an insurance company involved doesn't really change where the ultimate cost resides.
