What is Employment Practices Liability and does my law firm need it?

Employment practices liability insurance (EPLI) is a type of insurance that provides protection for employers against claims made by employees or former employees for a variety of employment-related issues, such as discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, and retaliation.

Whether your law firm needs EPLI coverage depends on several factors, including the size of your firm, the number of employees, and the nature of your work. If your law firm has employees, it is at risk for employment-related claims. EPLI coverage can provide protection against these claims and can help cover the costs of legal defense, settlements, and judgments.

In addition, if your law firm handles employment law cases for clients, having EPLI coverage can help protect you from potential claims made by your clients for errors or omissions in the handling of their cases.

Overall, EPLI coverage can be an important part of a comprehensive risk management strategy for your law firm, helping to protect your firm from the financial impact of employment-related claims. It is important to carefully review your policy and consider any exclusions or limitations to ensure that you have the appropriate level of coverage for your needs.
