It really no longer is a matter of whether an employer is sued over its employment practices, but when.
It's a fact that employment practices liability (EPL) lawsuits constitute the most common type of liability lawsuit today,
and once a claim gets rolling it is difficult to stop the financial devastation.
More and more companies are finding out the hard way how complex the employment relationship is. With more federal, state,
and local employment laws on the books than ever before, employers now operate in an environment fraught with EPL landmines
and tripwires. Every day, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) receives some 200 new EPL complaints alleging
discrimination by race, sex, disability, age, religion, and national origin; sexual harassment; wrongful termination; retaliation;
and other complaints.
What employers need more than ever in today's changing world is a trusted ally, a professional working in their corner who
understands EPL risks and can help ward off potential EPL claims through proactive risk management programs. That's why Chubb
developed Executive Protection PortfolioSM Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI).
