EMPLOYMENT PRACTICES LIABILITY

WHY DO YOU NEED EPLI COVERAGE?

Why do companies need Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) coverage? 

Many firms – especially smaller ones – do not see this product as being critical to their operations.  After all, having good HR practices in place and making sure all employees are treated fairly should be enough to avoid this type of risk – right? 

 

Wrong! 

We’ve all heard horror stories about rogue employees who feel equitable treatment is just not good enough.  It only takes one. 

A suit brought due to an alleged wrongful act - even groundless or frivolous ones – need to be defended.  Legal defense costs for these types of cases usually average $65,000. 

And what happens if there is an adverse judgment against the employer? 

The financial impact of a large settlement could cripple a company or even put it out of business.
