If you have staff, you run the risk of lawsuits from employees who allege discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation and other claims — and the complex regulations around those issues are ever-changing.
Employment practices liability insurance (EPLI) provides your company with coverage against claims by employees who believe their legal rights have been violated. This may include employment-related claims made through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
Typically, EPLI provides coverage for reimbursement for settlements, judgments, and the expense of defending yourself when you are accused of:
- Failure to hire or promote
- Discrimination against employees or prospective employees
- Wrongful termination
- Sexual or other harassment
