InsureVianet announced today it has expanded the number of states for its online Executive Liability Suite by 16 additional states and the District of Columbia, bringing to 38 the total number of states in which the company offers its online small business Employment Practices Liability (ELS) program. Combined, these 38 states represent approximately 65% of all small businesses in the U.S.
InsureVianet’s XML-compliant ELS program – which offers Employment Practices Liability insurance to businesses with 100 or fewer employees – gives commercial agents the capability to quickly and easily enter underwriting data, receive real-time proposals, initiate purchases, obtain policies and service the company’s specialty product suite.
A unique value-added feature of the comprehensive ELS package is InsureVianet’s partnership with Bashen Consulting. Through that partnership, policyholders receive expert consultation for meeting state and federal employment compliance regulations, state-specific human resources policy manuals, access to a confidential complaint handling process, incident response services, expert claim investigation services, and more.
“Through this newly expanded roster of states,” said InsureVianet CEO and President Peter Bothwell, “many additional agencies can now access our current products and other specialty niche products and services in a very cost-effective manner on an advanced, easy-to-use technology platform.” InsureVianet products and system functionality are also available through its parent company, InsuranceNoodle.
In addition to the District of Columbia, InsureVianet is now available in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah, and West Virginia. Other states in which the company’s program is offered are Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
