Employment Practices Liability Insurance – Protection for When the Heart of Your Business is Threatened
Affordable Coverage Protection Against A Costly Surprise
Did you know that in 2015, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission received 23,646 claims involving religious and age discrimination? In the past, only large companies could afford expensive stand-alone Employment Practices Liability (EPL) policies to protect themselves against those types of claims.
However, quality protection is now available for smaller businesses just like yours. EPL coverage from Badger Mutual Insurance is easy, affordable, and provides comprehensive protection for your business when the mental and financial shock of an employment claim arises.
Even Small Businesses Can Face An Employment Claim
In today’s workplace, small business owners must protect themselves from employment claims brought by their employees, leased employees, independent contractors, applicants for employment and even third parties such as clients, customers and vendors. Discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination – these are just some of the charges that employees and others can file at any time.
Exposures are increasing for every business, regardless of size. The workforce is as demographically diverse as ever. Social and cultural trends such as religious and political differences, the use of social media, and even telecommuting requests are changing the face of today’s workplace.
It’s Not Just About Federal Law
The legal environment is placing even more legal responsibility on business owners regarding these types of wrongful employment behavior. In addition to the federal statutes, businesses must be aware of state and local jurisdictional employment discrimination laws, which typically provide even broader protection for the employee, not the employer.
With so many resources to protect employees, let Badger Mutual Insurance be your source of protection as the employer.
