Employment Practices Liability

Providing employment practices liability support for major insurers

Our employment practices liability team carries out bulk claims and EPLI work for major insurers. We have developed efficient ways to deal with claims including a suite of standard defence documents and an early risk evaluation process to direct claim strategy at the outset.

In addition to claims advice, we offer a range of additional services including policy coverage reviews, bespoke training based on EPLI trends and helplines designed to help insureds avoid claims.

We have seen significant growth in this market, a trend we expect to continue as more businesses become aware of the balance sheet protection offered by EPLI. Whether offered as part of a broader management liability product or as a standalone policy, we have the expertise to help insurers manage and grow their EPLI business profitably and successfully.

Rising numbers of workplace disputes and ever changing regulatory requirements have resulted in a steady increase in claims against employers over the last decade. Accordingly, employment practices liability insurance is increasingly seen as essential cover for business, particularly for small and medium sized businesses without a dedicated HR facility.
