Employment Practices Liability Insurance for Hospice Care
Sound Best Practices are required for a hospice organization to establish and foster a culture of non-discrimination and fairness, and to help prevent work-related lawsuits. This includes hiring practices, background checks procedures, wage-and-hour compliance, supervisory training, incident-reporting procedures, and other important employment practices. In addition, hospices should have employment practices liability (EPL) coverage as part of their overall insurance program, because without it, the cost of workplace claims can threaten an organization’s bottom line and ability to successfully operate.
Protection for Employee-Related Claims
Care Providers Insurance Services provides employment practices liability insurance for hospices, designed to protect an agency or facility against claims of workplace misconduct. Our EPL policy provides coverage for a broad scope of employment-related issues, including but not limited to:
- Sexual harassment
- Wrongful termination (volunteers included)
- Unfair hiring practices
- Hostile work/volunteer environment
- In addition, depending on the insured, we may be able to cover the costs of investigations and legal fees associated with regulatory actions
