Non-Profit Employment Practices Liability
Employment Practices Liability is insurance for lawsuits that might arise in a non-profit organization's course of employing staff, including wrongful hiring/firing, discrimination, harassment, false imprisonment, breach of contract, emotional distress, and wage and hour law violations.
Most commonly, employment practices liability deals with laws and protections brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) of 1990, the Civil Rights Act of 1991, ADEA (Age Discrimination in Employment Act) of 1967, and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC) interprets and enforces these laws.
What if We Don't Have Employees?
Organizations can be sued for discrimination by third parties (clients, donors, vendors, etc.) Only the purchase of EPL will provide insurance protection (defending an allegation or paying damages).
Who needs Employment Practices Liability?
Thank you so much for your time. You are so great at what you do and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it when people take pride in their work and do it well. Less money and more coverage… doesn’t get much better than that!

Ron Martin- not just my insurance guy but now a friend! He is sincere and truly cares about you and the success of my business. Checks in periodically just to see how we all are doing. Insurance buying was never so easy. Thanks, Ron.
