EPLI – Employment Practices Liability Insurance
Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) protects you from non-injury claims made by your employees. It is an interesting thought that can often be overlooked, but those who work for you have the right to hold you responsible when they feel that they are being treated unfairly. The allegations that are covered include discrimination, wrongful termination, harassment, and more. No matter if your business is big or small, the benefits of having EPLI insurance are the same.
With California’s new Harassment Prevention Training Law that has been updated, it is more important than ever to obtain an EPLI policy. As of 2018, California decided to revise this law to become more inclusive. Previously, all businesses with 50+ employees had to take mandatory sexual harassment training classes every 2 years. This has been updated to reflect all businesses with 5+ employees, and this includes even temporary and seasonal employees.
Gaspar Insurance Services offers these classes for you to ensure that your business is up to code. No matter what area of work you specialize in, if you have 5 or more employees, then you qualify.
