Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI)

Two females having a conversation at a table.

Employment practices liability Insurance (EPLI) covers employers against claims made by employees for employment-related issues. Typically, large corporations have abundant EPLI coverage in place to protect against the financial risks of employment lawsuits. However, small and new businesses are generally the most vulnerable to employment claims because they may lack a legal department or detailed policies and procedures to guide hiring, firing, and disciplining employees.

Types of Employment-Related Claims

Employment-related claims are based on different types of allegations, including:

  • Sex discrimination
  • Age discrimination
  • Race discrimination
  • Disability discrimination
  • Harassment
  • Failure to promote
  • Wrongful termination

Claims-Made Basis Coverage

EPLI coverage is typically written on a claims-made basis, which means that the incident that resulted in an employment-related claim must have occurred within the coverage period. An employer could be vulnerable if coverage is dropped or no tail coverage (extended for a longer period) was put in place, as employment claims can arise months or even years after the date of the alleged incident.

Cost of Employment Practices Liability Insurance

The cost of EPLI coverage for your business will depend on several factors, including:

  • Number of employees
  • Percentage of employee turnover
  • Established policies and procedures
  • Prior lawsuits against the company

Depending on your company size, EPLI can be an endorsement to a business owner’s policy (BOP) or a general liability policy, or it can be written as a stand-alone policy along with a BOP. One of our knowledgeable agents at ISAA Insurance & Financial Services in Winston Salem, North Carolina, can help you obtain the right EPLI coverage for your company.
