  • Breach of Employment Contract
  • Employment Related Misrepresentation
  • Failure to Adopt Adequate Workplace Employment Policies & Procedures
  • Illegal Retaliatory Treatment
  • Invasion of Privacy
  • Negligent Evaluation
  • Employment Related Wrongful Infliction of Emotional Distress

The purpose of this insurance is to protect the corporation, directors, officers and employees from alleged employment-related wrongful acts. Features of this policy include:

  • Coverage for front/back pay
  • Attorneys’ fees and compensatory damages
  • Punitive damages where insurable by law
  • Actual or alleged retaliatory treatment
  • Varying retentions for class action suits or other claims
