Employment Practice Liability Insurance
Changes in federal and state laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Civil Rights Act of 1991, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, resulted in increased awareness of sexual harassment, discrimination, and wrongful termination in the workplace.
According to the EEOC, the number of workplace discrimination charges increased 15% in 2008, with the largest increases in retaliation and age-based claims. As an employer you face the risk of legal action from your current, past^ or prospective employees.
We are pleased to offer Employment Practices Liability coverage as an added layer of protection for our insureds. This valuable coverage provides defense costs and indemnity, up to the limits of liability you select.
