What is EPLI?

Employment Practices Liability Insurance, or EPLI, covers businesses against claims by workers that their legal rights as employees have been violated.

The number of employee lawsuits has risen roughly 400% in the last 20 years and the number isn't expected to slow down anytime soon. As a business owner, being sued by an employee is more likely than a fire at the facility.1
