The first-in-class resources available through the website are an enhancement to Executive Liability’s existing loss prevention offerings known as EPL Pak® Premier.

EPL Pak Premier is a suite of risk management resources available only to Executive Liability’s EPL clients. Through a partnership with Littler Mendelson, P.C., a nationally recognized employment and labor law firm, EPL Pak Premier now includes a powerful collection of on-line risk management tools designed to respond to the needs of today’s employers. With one click, EPL clients are able to enter a password-protected web portal, and gain instant access to a broad range of innovative and valuable tools designed to help them manage their workforce and reduce exposure to employment-related claims.

The resources available on-line include:

  • A sample employee handbook and policies;
  • A human resources form library – A full complement of downloadable human resources forms that is available for customization;
  • A hire & fire guide – Guidance for employers on each phase of the employment relationship;
  • Employment law reference manuals – Manuals that are available on a broad array of topics, including layoffs, downsizing and furloughs, workplace violence, discrimination and employment class actions. The manuals also include a state-by-state assessment of employment laws and regulations; and

An unlawful harassment prevention guide – Step-by-step instructions that are available to prevent, address and resolve harassment issues in the workplace.

These value-added resources also build upon the innovative enhancements offered through the Chartis insurers’ Employment Edge policy, such as social media protection and other expanded notice and coverage features.

“Controlling employment exposure and keeping pace with up-to-date employment trends is a challenge for any employer,” said Joni Mason, Senior Vice President and EPL Product Manager of Executive Liability.
