New York – November 10, 2009 – Chartis today announced the addition by its Executive Liability Division of significant new loss control services to Employment Practices Liability Pak® Premier (EPL Pak Premier), a component of its market-leading employment practices liability product.

The new loss control services feature a unique partnership with Jackson Lewis LLP, a preeminent employment law firm with offices throughout the United States. Through this partnership, EPL Pak Premier clients have access to risk management solutions offered by Jackson Lewis, including interactive online and webinar training on topical employment issues such as harassment avoidance and discrimination. EPL Pak Premier clients also have access to self-audit pre-termination checklists to assist in identifying potential vulnerabilities. In addition, Jackson Lewis provides EPL Pak Premier clients with a one-hour legal consultation addressing basic human resources and employment law issues, including the impact of federal, state and local laws on personnel decisions, and potential liabilities under employment laws.

EPL Pak Premier clients also receive complimentary registration to the Jackson Lewis nationwide seminar series, which addresses issues of employment law and litigation developments. These seminars provide an effective mechanism to reduce litigation costs, manage time efficiently and receive early warning of potential trouble. For California-based clients, the seminar series also includes access to CA AB 1825 sexual harassment compliance training at various locations throughout the state.

“We’re excited about our partnership with Jackson Lewis and the services they will provide to EPL Pak Premier clients,” said Michael Smith, President of Executive Liability. “The addition of these loss control services to our EPL Pak Premier product highlights our commitment of responding to our clients and meeting their needs appropriately.”
