Whether you are a large or small business, the employer – employee relationship has changed. In today’s world, employers can no longer assume all employment relationships will go smoothly. Finding a suitable Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) program has become one of the single most important things owners and managers can do. Polaris Risk Management & Insurance Services can design products to protect clients against breach of employment contracts, discrimination, wrongful termination and sexual or other harassment issues.
 
Reasons To Have EPLI Coverage

  • General liability policies don’t cover this exposure
  • Over 60% of claims come from former employees
  • The average cost to defend an EPLI claim is $150,000
