Directors and Officers

Covering claims resulting from managerial decisions that have adverse financial consequences.

Businesses need to protect themselves from claims brought by employees for discrimination, wrongful termination, sexual harassment and other types of employment related issues. Employment Practices Liability (EPL) policies cover management, directors and officers and employees of an organization for claims arising from alleged inappropriate workplace conduct. Small and large businesses and organizations are vulnerable to employment related lawsuits, especially those that do not have written polices or an employee handbook. Litigation can disrupt production, damage reputations and possibly destroy businesses financially. We have carriers who write coverage and provide risk management tools to any type or size of entity to protect against employment related claims.
