Lawsuits by employees are the largest segment of litigation brought against employers…and law firms are not immune.
Employment Practices Liability (EPL) insurance provides defense and indemnity coverage for claims arising out of the employment relationship. While employees’ perennial claims of wrongful termination and harassment continue unabated, there are a host of other alleged employment related wrongful acts that can have severe consequences for a law firm, such as:
- Failure to hire or promote
- Whistleblower Retaliation
- Wrongful Evaluation
- Social Media Violations
