What Is Employment Practices Liability Insurance?

The Hartford provides comprehensive and customizable EPLI. We’ve made it easy for business owners to get the coverage they need to help protect their companies.

Employment practices liability insurance helps protect businesses from lawsuits due to issues with someone’s job, like discrimination, wrongful termination and more. This coverage is included in our Póliza para propietarios de empresas (BOP).

  • Clientes
  • Vendors
  • Business invitees
