E&O: More Options to Consider

The Number One Insurance Agency’s E&O Team wants to be sure you have the coverage you need for your Agency’s E&O, including any additional coverage options.

One popular coverage addition available from both of our major carriers is Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPL).

Swiss Re Corporate Solutions, Underwritten by Westport provides EPLI coverage via endorsement or Stand-alone coverage based on your agency size and they have various limits available.

Utica National offers this coverage via endorsement. Their recently expanded EPL offering also includes Third-Party Protection via endorsement. For an additional 20% of the EPL premium, you can protect your operation from Allegations of Harassment and Discrimination by Clients, Customers, Suppliers/Vendors, Service Providers and others that interact with your staff.

Our E&O Team is always here to answer any of your E&O questions.  Please be sure to discuss this coverage with them when you renew your E&O policy. Contact Ellen Stoppel or Michelle St. Angelo in our E&O Department at 800.742.6363.

Please update our office when there are changes to your email address (or with your agency staff). Also, please remember to include an email contact when sending any new business submissions.
