Employment cases are the largest category of civil litigation, and one of the greatest liability factors for any organization. A negative judgment in just one case can throw a company into bankruptcy, or wipe out all profits for the year. However, traditional commercial insurance policies may not protect your organization adequately in the event of a loss due to an employment-related matter. To mitigate that risk, Employment Practice Liability (EPL) Insurance is a crucial protection. EPL can provide assurance when making employment decisions and protect against disaster should a case or litigation arise. Like most insurance products, there are a range of EPL policies providing different protections and coverage, and employers have sometimes been surprised to find they did not have the coverage they thought. That can be an expensive lesson, one often learned too late.

Please join Bob Gregg as he helps you understand why an EPL policy is important, what to consider when evaluating and selecting a policy, and some of the coverage nuances that are critical to understand so that you know what your policy covers and whether it has the protections you need.


This webinar will cover:

  • What Employment Practice Liability insurance covers
  • Major liability issues that can be addressed by EPL insurance
  • Your organization’s risk factors to consider
  • Standard policy exclusions, and their impact on the protections you thought you had
  • Having adequate “real” protection, including coverage of managers, agents, and family assets
  • Cautions in contract language, such as terms, definitions, and pitfall terms (“illegal,” “criminal,” “intentional”)
  • Effectively completing the application.
  • Pre-application assessment strategies and preparation
  • Potential claims and waivers
