Employment Practices Liability Insurance

EPLI Protect against employee lawsuits with employment practices liability insurance (EPLI)

Employment practices liability insurance, known in the trade as EPL insurance or EPLI,
provides coverage to employers against claims made by employees alleging:

  • Discrimination (based on sex, race, age or disability, for example)
  • Wrongful termination
  • Harassment
  • Other employment-related issues, such as failure to promote

Large corporations typically have substantial employment practices insurance coverage in place and are prepared to deal with just about any employment lawsuit. However, small or new businesses are often the most vulnerable to employment claims. That’s because they usually lack a legal department or employee handbook detailing the policies and procedures that guide hiring, disciplining or terminating employees.
