EMPLOYMENT PRACTICES LIABILITY INSURANCE

Even the smallest employee dispute can turn into expensive litigation. Spurred by federal legislation, monetary awards for employment-related claims - for harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination, retaliation, defamation, unfair hiring practices, and other workplace torts - are steadily rising, with no end in sight. Employment-related claims can have a serious financial impact on your bottom line. Westchester specifically developed this policy with the EPL exposures of private companies in mind.
