What is EPLI Insurance?

Employment Practices Liability Insurance covers employment related claims (listed above) in addition to other types of inappropriate workplace conduct.  EPLI policies can also cover areas such as defamation, failure to promote, invasion of privacy, negligent evaluation, and deprivation of a career opportunity.  With this coverage, the policies would apply to directors and officers of the company, management personnel, and employees, all as the insureds.  

Things that are likely to be excluded from EPLI insurance include bodily injury, property damage, and intentional/dishonest acts.  As explained at the International Risk Management Institute website, Employment Practice Liability Insurance policies are written on a claims-made basis.  In other words:

The forms contain "shrinking limits" provisions, meaning that insurer payment of defense costs—which are often a substantial part of a claim—reduce the policy's limits. This approach contrasts with commercial general liability (CGL) policies, in which defense is covered in addition to policy limits.
