Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) policies are taking the spotlight in regards to claims related to COVID-19. EPLI is a type of liability insurance that covers wrongful acts arising from the employment process. Examples of claims covered under such policies include:

  • Wrongful Termination
  • Discrimination
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Retaliation

The policies cover Directors, Officers, Management Personnel, and Employees as insureds. 

In the midst of the pandemic, Insurance Carriers began issuing custom-written endorsements to exclude or limit coverage under EPLI policies for claims related to COVID-19.  

If your construction firm has an EPLI policy or is considering getting one, you should be fully aware of what such exclusions could mean for your policy, premiums and your business in general.

For more information on these exclusions, check out Risk Management’s informative article on the topic.
