Industry-Specific Employment Practices Liability

Unique industry Challenges. Total Customization.

We all know if you have employees or potential employees, you have exposure to liability from them from abusive and hostile workplace to zealots promoting religion in the office. Certain industry segments have unique employment exposures that traditional EPLI policies do not address. Business Risk Partners has developed solutions for several of these unique exposures with specially tailored policies to meet the needs of these industries, including law firms, staffing firms, and professional employer organizations (PEOs). For larger firms, we can also customize an EPL policy for you.
