Employment Practices Liability

Under the Fair Work Act, there are some 17,000 unfair dismissal claims per year processed, with the average cost of each claims in excess of $50,000.

Employment Practices Liability is designed to financially protect both your company and its directors if they are found to be legally liable for claims brought by your employees, contract workers, temporary workers or any person applying for a position.

Employment Practices Liability will assist in minimising the financial consequences to your organisation from claims that pertain to:

• Wrongful dismissal or termination of employment
• Sexual or workplace harassment
• Wrongful failure to promote
• Wrongful discrimination or inaction to prevent such events

While Employment Practices Liability cover is generally available under a Management Liability policy, larger organisations should consider taking it out as a standalone policy.

We aim to work with you and provide an insurance and risk solution that gives you greater security for the future, and confidence to succeed.

Please Note: Below are some of the more common insurance policy features, however, the list is not exhaustive and some features may not be offered by certain insurers. Please refer to the insurer-specific policy wording for inclusions, exclusions, terms and conditions.

A tarnished reputation has the potential to reduce the number of individuals that trust, and are willing to donate to a NFP. Given the heavy reliance most NFPs have on donor contributions, as well as the fierce competition in attracting donor dollars, a cyber breach, coupled with possible legal action...
