EPL Carry-Thru Help Line

Lawsuits and litigation related to employment practices are one of the leading causes of escalating liability claims for Financial Institutions. Often, the ability to discuss the legal implications of a decision or situation is the best solution to reducing exposure to a potential claim.

We have partnered with Jackson Lewis P.C., one of the leading law firms in the country focused on employment practices law, to provide our Employment Practices Liability (EPL) insureds with risk management services including wage and hour issues, employee leaves of absence, protecting company and employee information, and other employment issues.

Berkley Financial Specialists’ customers, who purchase Employment Practices Liability coverage, have access to a toll free Help Line. Through the Help Line, policyholders are eligible to receive free employment practices information and general guidance from Jackson Lewis. In addition, Berkley Financial Specialists’ customers have access to other services offered by Jackson Lewis such as assistance in developing employment policies and an H. R. handbook as well as supervisor training, seminars and programs at discounted rates.
