Employment Practices Liability Insurance, otherwise known as EPLI, is designed to provide protection for an employer against claims made by employees, former employees or potential employees. It provides coverage for employee-related claims such as discrimination (age, sex, race, disability), wrongful termination of employment, retaliation and sexual harassment.
Employers today are facing significant liability when making personnel decisions. They must comply with a multitude of federal, state, and local laws and regulations regarding employment decisions. These can include civil rights and employment laws being overhauled, corporate downsizing and reorganization, and the escalating awareness regarding sexual harassment.
General Liability Insurance excludes coverage for employment-related claims. Employment Practices Liability Insurance will help to mitigate the impact of your EPL risk and protect your company’s bottom line.
