Featured Coverages

Employment Practices Liability – Employment Practices Liability coverage protects you when an employee, recognized volunteer or applicant makes a claim against you or your business for wrongful employment. It also provides coverage for third party claims made by customers, vendors, clients and tenants alleging discrimination or sexual harassment. Costs to defend and settle these claims on average run from $27,000 to $50,200 or more and in some cases may cause dissolution of a business when the proper coverage is not in place. Whether a claim is valid or groundless, you are required to take steps to defend your business which may include legal and defense costs. Coverage is optional up to $250,000 limit w/Full Prior Acts and 3rd Party Coverage (including discrimination).

Cyber & Data Breach – This is a comprehensive insurance solution designed to help businesses respond to a full range of cyber incidents including threats of unauthorized intrusion into or interference with computers system, damage to data and systems from a computer attack and cyber-related litigation.  Most entities hold the personal information of their customers and employees. All states have data breach laws that require companies to notify affected individuals if their personally identifying or personally sensitive information may have been compromised. Coverage is optional up to $250,000 limit.

Equipment Breakdown Tech Advantage – Provides coverage for the new technology risks that businesses face. Combining both equipment breakdown and technology coverage, this product protects against accidents, the costs of repairing or replacing damaged equipment, and the costs associated with certain indirect losses.

Businesses operate in an environment of fast-paced technological changes. With advances in functionality come new exposures that standard policies fail to address. This coverage provides the additional protection that business owners need for loss or damage to property resulting from a mechanical breakdown or electrical failure.
