It could happen to you: a claim from your employee based on age discrimination, lack of promotion or the termination of an employment contract. Companies in the United States and Europe have noticed an increase in this type of claims. The amounts awarded as compensation can be so high that they can endanger the continuity of your organization. Employment Practices Liability-insurance (EPL) can cover the claims and legal defense costs for such delicate matters.
