First Underwriters Insurance Brokers provide insurance protection for employment practices which includes coverage for defense costs and damages related to various employment-related claims including allegations of Wrongful Termination, Discrimination, Workplace Harassment, and Retaliation.
Many employers do not realize that they have a gap in their insurance coverage that leaves them vulnerable to discrimination and harassment lawsuits from customers, clients, vendors, and suppliers. Standard EPLI policies only provide coverage for lawsuits brought about by employees or prospective employees, and most commercial general liability (CGL) policies specifically exclude coverage for harassment and discrimination. That’s where third-party EPLI comes in.
Third-party EPLI fills this gap between EPLI and CGL and offers protection against allegations of wrongful acts made by customers, clients, vendors, and suppliers.
In general, covered claims include the following:
Discrimination based on the following:
The following forms of harassment:
Third-party EPLI is vital for businesses that deal with customers on a daily basis. However, even if your firm doesn’t have a lot of interaction with the general public, you may still benefit from third-party EPLI coverage if your operations involve clients, suppliers or vendors.
