XL, ForAgentsOnly Offer Employment Practices Coverage for Small Firms

September 7, 2010

Global insurer XL Insurance and ABA Insurance Services, Inc., a new managing general underwriter that was formerly Progressive Insurance Co.’s Professional Liability Group, have signed a joint underwriting agreement to provide Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI).

Mayfield Heights, Ohio-based ABA Insurance Services offers EPLI through ForAgentsOnly.com, Progressive’s agency-dedicated Web site in 15 states, with plans to expand to all 50 states by the end of 2010.

In its new relationship with XL Insurance, ABA said it will provide EPLI coverage to small and mid-size businesses with fewer than 250 employees.

XL Insurance said it continues to directly provide EPLI coverage for both public and private companies through its Hartford-based professional unit.

EPLI address claims related to discrimination involving age, sex, race and disability as well as wrongful termination of employment, sexual harassment, and other employment-related allegations.
