In today's lawsuit happy society, EPLI (Employee Practices Liability Insurance) has increasingly become a critical part of many business owners' libility protection. If you are sued for one of the reasons above, EPLI insurance will cover your legal expenses and pay any judgements against you up to the limits of your policy (you can choose policy limits anywhere between $100,000 - $2,000,000).
