Employment practices liability insurance (EPLI)

Expanding your essentials

Employment practices liability (EPLI) coverage is a vital component to any business’ insurance package, no matter the size. The number of employee accusations and charges employers face has grown dramatically in recent years. Many small businesses lack human resource professionals or legal counsel on staff to guide them through the minefield of risks they face every day. EPLI coverage can be added as an optional endorsement to our EssentialBOP product.

EPL protects employers from claims brought by employees alleging:

  • Discrimination
  • Wrongful termination
  • Harassment, including sexual harassment
  • Retaliation and other wrongful acts

Covers claims brought by:

  • Full time, part-time, temporary, and seasonal employees
  • Recognized volunteers
