Employment Practices Liability Insurance
EPLI covers the bills when an employee sues an employer over an employment related issue.
In today’s increasingly regulated and litigious business environment, even the business owners who are trying to be compliant and do everything right can find themselves in a situation in which an employee feels their legal rights have been violated. EPLI can cover lawsuit expenses when an employee sues over discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, and similar issues. Laws like the American with Disabilities Act, Family Medical Leave Act, Sick Pay, Equal Pay, Sexual Harassment all outline standards employers have to meet. When employers break these rules, even without meaning to, they may face a potential lawsuit. Employment practices coverage helps businesses handle the cost of these suits.
An Employer Practices Liability policy can manage the risk and potential expense associated with these claims.
