Employment Practice Liability

Protecting your company against employment practice liability

Diversity in the workplace in the Middle East has significantly increased the risk of allegations directed against local businesses for employment practice violations.

Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) protects companies, managers and employees against financial risks resulting from claims based on employment-related discrimination, harassment or wrongful torts such as wrongful termination or non-compliance with data protection laws.

Our solution

Our market-leading EPLI offers worldwide protection for policyholders, subsidiaries, pension plans, directors, officers and employees.

We provide:

  • a broad definition of employment practices violation including wrongful termination
  • cover for fees, expenses and compensation awards including punitive damages arising out of alleged or actual wrongful employment acts
  • protection for insured people acting as Outside Directors in associated companies
  • a range of extensions to provide more comprehensive protection.

We offer capacity up to USD 50 million. The maximum capacity is deployed on a very selective basis and depends on the quality of the actual risk.
