If an association has employees, the board should make sure the association's insurance has an endorsement for Employment Practices Liability (EPL). This insurance defends the association in employer-employee disputes involving the following kinds of actions:
Third Party Claims.
- sexual harassment
- negligent evaluation
- failure to employ or promote
- wrongful discipline
- intentional infliction of emotional distress
- wrongful termination
In addition, boards should ask for coverage against third-party claims. This protects the association if vendors were to sexually harass any of the association's employees and/or members.
