Employee-related charges have increased 31 percent since 2006
As a small business owner, you may believe the small size and compact workforce will make you impervious to an employee liability lawsuit. The truth is no business is immune to employee liability, and a lawsuit could cost your business a chunk of change, even if you win. Markham Group has the employment practice liability insurance (EPLI) to protect your business.
Our agency has served the New England business community since 1935, and we know how liability can hamper the growth of a small business. We have access to top insurance carriers, including The Hartford, Chubb, Philadelphia, Travelers, and Hanover, so we will find your business a comprehensive policy for an affordable price.
Ensure your business does not fall behind
Employment liability is a growing problem – almost 100,000 employers were charged with a lawsuit in 2012, which resulted in $365 million in damages. Markham Group can protect you financially from these employer lawsuits, including in cases of:
- Sexual harassment
- Workplace harassment
- Wrongful termination
- Violation of the equal pay act
- Violation of the family and medical leave act
A typical business owner policy can provide you $10,000 worth of EPLI coverage, but sometimes that amount is not enough. However, you can increase that limit to higher limits such as $300K, $500K or $1 million. We can also provide you coverage for:
- Future wages after a lawsuit
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earnings
Our coverage will also apply to not just your current full- and part-time employees, but seasonal employees, independent contractors, and people you have employed in the past. We can also provide you guidance to prevent lawsuits from occurring in the first place.
