RM 101: Employment Practices Liability Insurance Fundamentals
Our “Risk Management 101: Employment Practices Liability Insurance Fundamentals” podcast covers why employment practices liability (EPL) insurance is critical to protecting employers.
We discuss how the coverage helps protect employers from lawsuits that are brought by current or former employees for alleged discrimination, sexual harassment, and wrongful termination, among others.
Among the topics we cover:
- How EPL insurance protects the company, its directors and officers and current and former employees.
- Who can bring claims that trigger EPL policies.
- The role of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
- What’s not covered under EPL policies.
We also cover steps employers can take to help minimize the risk of employee lawsuits, how insurance companies determine premiums, and emerging issues such as social media claims.
