In today’s business climate, companies are increasingly susceptible to employment-related lawsuits. You could still be at risk even if your company has never faced an employment lawsuit. Suppose one of your employees decides to sue your company for wrongful termination, discrimination, or sexual harassment. In that case, you could face a costly legal battle. Employment practices liability insurance can come in handy in these situations, and Nesso Insurance offers reliable coverage in the state of Connecticut.

At Nesso Insurance, we’re a group of experienced insurance agents whose passion is helping our clients and their team members feel protected. We offer many types of insurance policies, including employment practices liability. Whether you’re a small business owner or a large corporation with hundreds of employees, we can help you decide the right level of coverage. Contact us today; with our knowledge and resources, we can make your insurance experience enjoyable.


Understand Our Employment Practices Liability Insurance

Employment practices liability insurance (EPLI) is a type of insurance that helps protect businesses from employment-related lawsuits. These lawsuits can be very costly, and they can put a strain on your business operations. If you’re found liable, you could have to pay damages to the employee, court costs, and attorney’s fees. Thankfully, Nesso Insurance’s EPLI can help you cover these costs.

We understand the importance of having adequate EPLI coverage; that’s why we offer a variety of EPLI policies that we can customize to fit your specific needs. Our EPLI provides financial protection and includes access to a team of insurance experts who can help you navigate the legal process and protect your interests. We’ll be happy to go over all the details with you and answer any questions you may have.

Claims That Our EPLI Can Cover

Claims can happen when you least expect them, even after taking all the necessary precautions. For example, you might conduct background checks on all job applicants, but these checks can miss something. If you hire a problematic employee and want to terminate them, they could file a lawsuit against your company. At Nesso Insurance, we want you to be ready for any employment-related lawsuit. Therefore, we’ve designed our policies to cover a wide range of potential claims, including:

Wrongful Termination

By having Nesso Insurance’s EPLI, you can be secure if one of your employees sues you for wrongful termination. These claims happen when employees believe they were let go from their job for an illegal reason, such as contractual breaches.


Unfortunately, discrimination claims are becoming more common in today’s workplace. If an employee feels you mistreated them because of their race, gender, or religion, they could file a claim against you. Get one of our EPLI policies, and don’t let a discrimination lawsuit impact your business.

Sexual Harassment

When an employee claims they were the victim of sexual harassment, it can be a sensitive situation. It’s essential that you take these claims seriously; also you need to have insurance in case the employee decides to take it to court. At Nesso Insurance, we simplify getting the coverage you need with our EPLI policy.

Benefits Of Having Nesso Insurance’s EPLI

There are many benefits to having Nesso Insurance’s EPLI, including the following:

Financial Protection

As we mentioned, employment-related claims can be very costly. Forget about the financial burden of a lawsuit, and let Nesso Insurance’s EPLI policy take care of it for you.

Guarding Your Company’s Reputation

An employment-related lawsuit can damage more than your bottom line; it can also damage your company’s reputation. Our EPLI can help to protect your company’s good name from being tarnished by a wrongfully filed lawsuit.

Staying Focused On Your Business

If you’re dealing with an employment-related lawsuit, staying focused on running your business can be hard. Nesso Insurance’s EPLI can provide you confidence in knowing that you have insurance to cover the costs of the lawsuit. This way, you can use your time and focus on more important things.

Of course, these are just a few examples of how our EPLI can help you. If you decide to work with us, our agents will be happy to explain all of our policies’ details so that you can make an informed decision. After all, our main goal is to protect what’s important to you, we have your best interest at heart.

Growing Businesses Will Find Our EPLI Especially Valuable

Any company can be hit with an employment-related lawsuit, but growing businesses are especially vulnerable. As your business grows, you’ll be responsible for more employees. With more employees comes the potential for more employment-related problems and lawsuits. Instead of slowing down your growth by worrying about these things, get Nesso Insurance’s EPLI and keep your business moving forward.

If your business is a startup, you might think you don’t need EPLI coverage. However, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Your business will eventually grow, and you’ll be glad you have Nesso Insurance’s EPLI in place when it does. No matter the size of your business, Nesso Insurance has the right policy for growing businesses in Connecticut.
