Chartis today announced the introduction of Employment EdgeSM, a new policy developed by its Executive Liability Division to address the full range of employment practices liabilities that companies face, including exposures arising from employee use of the Internet and social media.

Chartis designed Employment Edge with the very latest developments in employment law, regulation and enforcement in mind. Coverage has been expanded to include a range of new exposures, from workplace bullying to violations of the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act (GINA). With coverage for company loss from certain social media and blogging activities of employees, Employment Edge can respond, even when such activities occur outside of the office. Insureds and brokers will appreciate the policy’s innovative “claims saving” feature that responds to the challenges of providing timely notice of lawsuits that arise from non-reported EEOC charges.

“The digital age and employee online activities have left employers in uncharted territory,” said Robert Yellen, Chief Underwriting Officer of Executive Liability. “Employment Edge responds with must-have coverage for today’s employers that mitigate exposure to employment liability risk.” Employment Edge policyholders are entitled to access EPL Pak Premier, a market-leading suite of loss prevention tools and resources. EPL Pak Premier now includes access to, which provides the Chartis insurers’ Employment Practices Liability insureds with reference materials, sample risk management and HR forms, policies, and guidelines developed by a leading employment law firm.
