Employment Practices Liability Insurance
Unfortunately, you are more likely to have a claim filed against you for employment practices before anything else. The California Supreme Court has ruled that employee harassment and or discrimination claims are not to be covered by Workers Compensation, which could leave your business on the line for thousands of dollars in defense costs and jury awards.
Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) coverage provides businesses and employees coverage for claims that happen as a result of wrongful employment practices such as:
- Personal Injury: infliction of emotional distress and humiliation, defamation and invasion of privacy.
- Failure to hire, negligent supervision, and wrongful demotion.
- Wrongful termination, retaliation, or discrimination.
Please feel free to contact us for more information. We would be happy to explain the advantages of EPLI coverage in greater detail and discuss how we can tailor it to your specific situation.
