Employment Practices Liability Insurance

employee practices liability insurance

From the moment you start the pre-hiring process until the exit interview, you are vulnerable to a lawsuit. As a result,your business should take a hard look at whether it can afford to defend itself against accusations of alleged wrongful employment practices. If not, there is an insurance solution called employment practices liability that protects against wrongful termination, discrimination, (age, sex, race, disability, etc.) or sexual harassment suits from your current, prospective, or former employees. This coverage applies to directors, officers, and employees, and can sometimes extend to third-party liabilities.

Why choose Employment Practices Liability Insurance?

According to researchers, three out of five employers will be sued by a prospective, current, or former employee while they are in business. While many suits are groundless, defending against them is costly and time­ consuming.
