Being an employer can be an incredibly rewarding experience. It’s a sign that your business is thriving and it gives you the opportunity to be a job creator and allows those working for you to provide for their families. But even having just a few employees comes with a significant amount of responsibility and risk.
Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) goes beyond standard commercial liability to protect businesses from the exposures they face from the moment they conduct an interview to the time an employee parts ways with the company. It is important for businesses of all sizes to have the right EPLI policy in place in the event that a claim is made.
Even if your company strictly conforms to the laws surrounding employment practices, all it takes is one claim to entangle you in a costly legal battle. Claims can be made by current, prospective, or former employees and can involve accusations of discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, and more.
