ACI’s 25th anniversary installment has a new home at the Intercontinental Times Square and is stacked with top speakers from all over the nation to ensure you are prepared to manage and defend against the increasing number of EPLI claims being filed.

The program has been revamped and updated to include enhanced industry perspectives and account for new developments, strategies and industry trends. Claims professionals, underwriters, risk managers, in-house counsel and outside counsel must thoroughly understand the ever changing EPLI market with new coverage options, ways to reduce costs of defending against and settling EPLI claims, and how to minimize exposure to risk.

New sessions for this year include:

  • Significant legal and regulatory developments from the past year and what’s ahead for 2017: new legislative rules and proposals, a review of the year’s most important case law, and EEOC, NLRB and DOL trends and priorities and their impact on EPLI
