EPLI Underwriters: Add Value to Your Value

The past decade has seen a dramatic increase in EPLI (Employment Practices Liability Insurance) policy holders. This is a direct result of a huge upswing in wrongful practice legal action against employers primarily for harassment, discrimination and wrongful termination. Commercial General Liability Insurance (CGL) does not cover wrongful employment acts.

Underwriters, Brokers and H.R. Consultants help employers guide through the various policies and provide a wealth of risk management information. Not all EPLI policies are the same. There are limitations sometimes in covering punitive damages, which counsel they can use, and assault and battery. Underwriters, Brokers and Consultants typically ask whether the applicant has an employee manual, someone dedicated to addressing employment related issues, the nature of their business, staff turnover, loss history, employment practices, financial information and whether there have been prior harassment or discrimination complaints and most require training for employees.

Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation training are the main areas which employers must train. Online training can be an effective and efficient medium for attaining this knowledge.

The value added proposition an Insurance Company, Brokerage Firm, H.R. Consultant Company or Professional Employer Organization can attain is to be able to offer this training to their clients. Here is an example of how a Firm or Company can brand a turn-key online training offering in the mandatory areas such as Unlawful Workplace Harassment, Understanding Discrimination and Retaliation. All training is tracked and recorded by a hosted learning management system. The Firm or Company can offer the training for a fee.
