Employment Practices Liability
Employment Practices Liability insurance protects organizations against allegations and lawsuits by employees who claim their legal rights have been violated. EPL exposures have expanded from discrimination or harassment brought by employees to include a wide range of evolving exposures including accessibility, gender issues and disputes over performance reviews and promotion.
While most lawsuits are filed against large companies, no organization — large or small, for-profit or nonprofit — is immune to employment practices liability claims. Staying ahead of liability trends can be daunting. Even the most vigilant organizations with informed, state-of-the-art internal controls and practices can't completely eliminate the potential for employment practices liability claims.
Travelers Canada Employment Practices Liability insurance provides protection against many kinds of employee lawsuits, including claims related to sexual harassment and discrimination, wrongful termination or discipline, performance and promotion related disputes, emotional distress, and mismanagement of employee benefit plans.
