The first-in-class resources available through the website are an enhancement to Executive Liability’s existing loss prevention offerings known as EPL Pak® Premier.

EPL Pak Premier is a suite of risk management resources available only to Executive Liability’s EPL clients. Through a partnership with Littler Mendelson, P.C., a nationally recognized employment and labor law firm, EPL Pak Premier now includes a powerful collection of on-line risk management tools designed to respond to the needs of today’s employers.

  • A human resources form library – A full complement of downloadable human resources forms that is available for customization;
  • A hire & fire guide – Guidance for employers on each phase of the employment relationship;

  • An unlawful harassment prevention guide – Step-by-step instructions that are available to prevent, address and resolve harassment issues in the workplace.

These value-added resources also build upon the innovative enhancements offered through the Chartis insurers’ Employment Edge policy, such as social media protection and other expanded notice and coverage features.
