The Hartford Employers Premier Choice PolicySM
Target: All risks from small publicly traded companies to Fortune 500 corporations.
Employment law is constantly changing and now, more than ever, employees and prospective employees are more keenly aware of their rights in the workplace. Increased merger and acquisition activity, cost-cutting measures and a general reduction in the workforce of many companies have resulted in a rising number of employment-related charges and lawsuits.
Even companies with sound employment policies and procedures, a commitment to diversity and good relations with employees are experiencing lawsuits alleging discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination or other employment-related allegations. Regardless of whether or not these claims are justified or meritorious, they mean that companies must defend themselves. This process can be time-consuming and expensive.
The Hartford offers “stand-alone” Employment Practices Liability coverage for employment-related allegations, such as employment discrimination, sexual or other workplace harassment, wrongful dismissal, discharge and termination, retaliation and other workplace torts.
