Employment Practices Liability Insurance

Minimizing Risks in a Soft Market

Wednesday, January 23, 2008

About

Discrimination, defamation, retaliation and other types of employment cases are crowding court dockets across the country. And, with such cases often resulting in substantial payouts to plaintiffs, either through settlements or verdicts, it is more important than ever that claims professionals, underwriters, risk managers and in-house counsel thoroughly understand their exposures.

To help you avoid and defend yourself against the growing number of claims, American Conference Institute presents its latest publication from the 13th Annual Conference on Employment Practices Liability Insurance. For the past twelve years, both this conference and publication has attracted leaders of both the insurance and employment law communities to receive the most current information on:

  • Underwriting EPL risk for small and large companies
  • Measuring and assessing risk vulnerabilities in companies
  • Utilizing ADR to quickly resolve employment cases and avoid litigation
  • Brokers’ views on new coverages and add-ons that clients are demanding
