Why You May Need EPLI and What to Look For When Buying EPLI

Employment practices liability insurance, also known as EPLI, covers your litigation costs and liability for claims brought against you in relation to your employment practices – even claims that are false, fraudulent, or frivolous. With employers being forced to cut back on their labor force (which often correlates to a rise in employment discrimination claims) and the expansion of the legal definition of disability, employers are currently facing ever increasing exposure to claims related to their employment practices. EPLI covers this exposure.

Suit By EEOC Not Covered Under EPLI Policy

On September 19, 2016, a federal court in Wisconsin denied the EEOC’s summary judgment motion in one of the three cases that directly challenged an employer’s wellness program requiring employees who sought health plan coverage with a wellness component to undergo a medical examination or pay higher premiums.
