Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) is a necessity!

February 9, 2023

Employment Practices Liability Insurance covers employment-related liabilities other than on-the-job injuries. This can include legal fees and damages for suits such as wrongful termination, discrimination, sexual harassment, and other alleged violations of employees’ legal rights. If you have employees, The Armstrong Company Insurance Consultants recommends considering EPLI coverage.
