Employment Practices Liability (EPL)

Damages from a wrongful termination suit can cripple your business. Protect yourself - and lower your possibility of risk.

Employment Practices Liability Overview

Your employees can be one of your greatest assets. Unfortunately, they can also be one of your greatest risks—especially in an age when employment-related claims and lawsuits are on the rise.

Employment practices liability insurance can help. Whether frivolous or not, it is designed to protect your business from claims and lawsuits alleging:

  • Sexual harassment
  • Discrimination
  • Wrongful termination or discipline
  • Failure to hire or promote
