Employment Practices Liability Coverage….do you have it?

 

Does your business have Employment Practices Liability?  Do you need it?

Employment Practices Liability Insurance is designed to protect businesses in the event they are the target of a claim or lawsuit alleging employment-related wrongdoing.  EPLI provides employers with coverage for a broad range of employment-related risks such as discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, and retaliation.  It safeguards you and your company against lawsuits brought by past, present and potential employees.

At Rossmann-Hurt-Hoffman, we have access to several insurance companies that offer EPLI coverage.  Some of the coverage features can include*:
  • Coverage for full-time, part-time, leased, seasonal and temporary employees
  • Covered claims include administrative charges filed with the EEOC
  • Optional $100,000 costs of defense for claims alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards
  • Optional third party liability coverage for claims brought by customers for discrimination (including costs of defense for Americans with Disabilities Act and public accommodation claims) and/or harassment
  • Optional sublimit for costs of defense for criminal investigations brought by any government agency for alleged hiring or harboring of illegal aliens

*This coverage overview is not a part of an insurance contract and does not supersede the policy.  Please read the policy form for complete terms, conditions and exclusions.
