EPL Insurance

EPL 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.

Bullying, Harassment and Discrimination

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.
