If you run your own company, you have so many issues to address. You want to keep your employees and clients happy, all while making an acceptable profit. One thing you don’t want to add to your worry list, however, is possible litigation. There are many types of insurance coverage that will protect you from unhappy customers or clients. If mistakes are made by your employees regarding products and services provided by your company, Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance can cover you. If business management decisions are made negligently and can cause harm to your customers, Directors and Officers (D&O) insurance can protect your company.
But what about a disgruntled employee? Since you aren’t immune to employees seeking liability, it is important to consider EPLI (Employee Practices Liability Insurance) to protect your company.
Examples of Claims Covered Under EPLI
EPLI insurance coverage will protect you and your company against such litigation as:
- Wrongful termination or demotion allegations
- Sexual harassment claims
- Discrimination charges
- Claims of emotional distress
EPLI can protect you and your company from liability. Others who work for you can also be protected.
Call your insurance agent to see what coverage is best for you. A comprehensive package including D&O, E&O and EPLI may be the best fit for your company.
