Rockwood Introduces an EPLI Initiative for California-Domiciled Businesses

By: Rockwood Programs, Inc.
CLAYMONT, Del. - Jan. 9, 2023 - PRLog -- Rockwood Programs has developed an Employment Practices Liability Insurance policy customized to address the unique liability exposures faced by California-domiciled businesses. It is being offered under the Essential EPLI brand name.

"California has long been recognized as a litigious environment," said Glenn W. Clark CPCU, president of Rockwood Programs. "This is especially true in the area of employment-related law, as many of the regulations are crafted to favor the employee. As a result, businesses located in the state have a difficult time securing EPLI coverage."

The Essential EPLI program primarily offers legal defense only, which keeps the premium affordable and encourages first-time buyers to purchase. A sub-limit of indemnity coverage is included to handle nuisance claims. A key feature of the Essential EPLI product is the inclusion of a Rapid Response team to quickly address allegations brought against policyholders. The team is comprised of attorneys in California who are thoroughly versed in the employment-related regulations governing that state. This advocacy defense is provided by the internationally recognized firm of Wilson Elser.

The Essential EPLI program offers liability limits of up to $500,000. Features include coverage for third-party exposures, legal defense for alleged violations of both Wage & Hour and Immigration laws, and access to risk mitigation tools. Prior Acts coverage is also available.

Coverage is underwritten through member companies of Fortegra, rated A- ("Excellent") by A.M. Best. Risk management services are also provided as part of the coverage package.
