EPL Insurance

EPL-insuranceEPL Insurance provides valuable protection for Employers.

It can cover claims brought against them for a range of issues such as:

  • Sexual harassment
  • Wrongful dismissal by employees
  • Incorrect selection for redundancy

EPL stands for Employment Practices/Practices Liability.  

EPL Insurance is VERY different from Employers Liability Insurance.

Why you need EPL Insurance

If you have employees this cover is essential.  

Tip: if you only have Employers Liability Insurance, you are exposed to potential claims which could reach thousands of pounds in defence costs and awards.

EPL Insurance Claims Examples

 

Constructive Dismissal and Harassment

Following his resignation, an employee at a

clothing retailer claimed that he had suffered

abuse and derogatory remarks over his sexuality

for an 18-month period. He alleged that he had

raised a grievance against his former manager but

this had been ignored, forcing him to leave.

The tribunal found in his favour and he was awarded £62,000

plus his legal fees. This left the company with a total bill of >£90,000.

A tribunal heard that a former employee of a car

parts retailer had been the subject of bullying and

harassment by managers after becoming pregnant.

She was awarded £16,000.

 

Unfair Dismissal

An IT consultancy faced a claim from a former

employee who had been made redundant. The

employee claimed he should not have been

selected for redundancy as he had taken a salary

sacrifice in the last year.

The legal fees in successfully defending the case were more

than £8,500.
