Employment Practices Liability Insurance

Mistakes can happen even in those companies that are run well. As a result, employers need to be mindful of the kinds of liabilities they might be exposed to in being responsible for the safety and well-being of their employees. Australia is becoming increasingly litigious, and claims for unfair dismissal, sexual harassment and racial discrimination are becoming more common than ever.

Employment Practices Liability Insurance provides organisations with cover for actions taken by employees against their employers, whether it be for alleged discrimination, unfair dismissal and sexual or workplace harassment.

Who is it for?

Resilium’s Employment Practices Liability Insurance gives an organisation protection should it become legally liable to pay claims made by any employees, temporary staff, contract workers or even those who are simply applicants for employment.

What does this insurance cover?

A typical Employment Practices Liability policy will provide cover for:

  • The sometimes sizeable costs and expenditures that can be experienced even if you or your organisation hasn’t been found guilty of any employment practices violation.
  • The insurance also covers your organisation for unfair dismissal, sexual harassment and discrimination.
