Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) is not covered in standard commercial general liability policies. Therefore, any claim brought by an employee such as wrongful discharge, unfair wages, harassment, hostile work environments or job related stress- is not covered.

These days, businesses are under severe pressure to control expenses. That often means cut-backs on insurance purchases while saving dollars for coverages deemed essential- a case of "penny wise and pound foolish". There is a growing trend of litigation occurring and it's not limited to just the corporate giants. Small businesses are increasingly vulnerable to being sued, especially in an economic downturn when people are hurting and looking to "blame" someone. Below are recent sample claims pertaining to small businesses.
