Read presentations from top insurance executives and brokers, in-house counsel, leading employment attorneys and other market experts' valuable insights on:
  • Hot spots in employment law claims
  • Brokers' view on new coverages and add-ons that clients are demanding
  • Nipping EPL class actions in the bud
  • Underwriting EPL risk for small and large companies
  • Handling retaliation claims
