(New York, N.Y.) - QBE is expanding its offering of Employment
Practices Liability insurance (EPLI) for small- and medium-sized
businesses that want easy and affordable protection.
According to Head of QBE Regional Insurance Tony Cid, EPLI coverage
has evolved from a high-priced option for large businesses to an
affordable necessity for all employers. "Nowadays, all business
owners must take steps to defend themselves against damaging
employment claims," he says.
Among QBE's enhanced EPLI offerings is access to an online loss
prevention, training and human resources tool center, where
employee handbooks, forms and policies can be customized. In
addition, business owners may consult with employment liability
attorneys via a toll-free help line, as well as EPLI specialists to
discuss claims or suits.
"QBE's financial strength provides a solid backing for this
product," Cid says. "Offered with some significant, unique loss
prevention and loss control services, this is just one more way QBE
is being innovative in the market."
