Employment practices liability insurance, also known 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
- Breach of Employment contract
- Failure to Employ or Promote
- Other employment-related issues, such as mismanagement of Employee Benefit plans
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.
