Markel Launches EPL Hotline, Online Loss Control Resources

Markel has launched a loss control program to connect employment practices liability (EPL) policyholders with information for managing risks. Through partnerships with Jackson Lewis, LLP and HR Care, Markel’s loss control program now includes a legal hotline and online access to legal compliance information.

Staffed by EPL attorneys, the hotline is managed by Jackson Lewis, LLP, an employment law firm representing management in the defense of harassment, discrimination, wrongful discharge, and other workplace-related claims. In addition to the hotline, employers can utilize the Jackson Lewis website as a resource for education, risk management publications, newsletters, and opt-in email notifications. Markel EPL insureds can attend Jackson Lewis seminars without charge. A list of breakfast seminar series, luncheons, and other programs presented at their 49 offices across the country is available at

Markel EPL policyholders are also permitted access to secure areas of the HR Care website at no charge. HR Care, an online resource service of Curtis Communications, Inc., offers legal compliance information and training sessions to human resource professionals. Jackson Lewis contributes monthly comments and professional articles to the 20,000+ page library of information in the HR Care Publications Library.

Markel has been writing employment practices liability insurance since 1994. It has expanded its management liability product suite to include D&O and fiduciary insurance.

The new hotline and online loss control resources are available immediately to Markel EPL policyholders.
