Why Your Business Needs EPLI Coverage
Businesses today are increasingly at risk for lawsuits and liability claims arising from employment practices and other related human resource issues such as discrimination and sexual harassment. In fact, it is estimated that three out of five firms will be sued by an employee.Any organization can get sued, including those with solid human resources policies and procedures in place. The cost of defending a claim can be enormous and legal fees alone could exceed $250,000.
The tremendous increase in employment-related litigation during the past several years makes EPLI an essential coverage.
