Employer Practices Liability in Concord, CA, Novato, CA and Surround Areas

An increasing area of concern for employer, Employment Practices in involve issues with Hiring, Discrimination, Benefits, Harassment, Wrongful Termination and other employment related concerns.

Coverage for these types of claims are generally not covered, or are given as only token coverage on Business Owners policies.

Your business also needs protection for  Third-Party Employment Practices Liability Insurance.

In our increasingly litigious society, the threat of a lawsuit hangs over every business transaction, large or small. Even employers who adhere to the letter of the law at all times are likely be sued by an aggrieved employee or customer at some point. While many suits are groundless, defending against them is costly and time consuming.

If you carry Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI), your business has a measure of protection

against lawsuits from current, prospective or former employees who allege “wrongful acts” such as discrimination (age, sex, race, disability, etc.), sexual harassment or wrongful termination. But what happens if a customer sues you for discrimination? Are you protected?

The Importance of Third-Party EPLI

Many employers do not realize—until it is too late—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:

o Discrimination, based on:

o Race

o Religion

o Sex

o Age

o National origin

o Disability

o Pregnancy

o Sexual orientation

· Harassment

o Unwanted sexual advances

o Unwanted requests for sexual favors

o Other verbal or physical actions that create a hostile or offensive work environment

Third-party EPLI is vital for businesses that deal with customers on a daily basis, but 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.
