Rockwood Programs, Inc. has been appointed to serve as the national administrator of a new employment practices liability insurance (EPLI) product. The coverage will be underwritten by member companies of Baldwin & Lyons, Inc. EPLI will initially be offered on a non-admitted basis; steps are being taken to file the product in all states.
The base policy form offers wage & hour protection, prior acts, third party, and Immigration coverage for most risks. There is also a toll-free risk management hotline at no additional cost to insureds.
The Rockwood Employment Practices Liability Insurance program also offers defense and indemnity protection against claims arising from the employer/employee relationship. The policy shields employers – plus all current, former, and prospective employees, directors and officers, even the corporate entity – against a broad spectrum of employment-related claims. Multiple limit and deductible options are available.
The claims administrator for the program is Wilson, Elser, Moskowitz, Edelman & Dicker, which has litigated employment practices-related disputes for over 30 years.
