With the harmonisation of legal systems within the European Union (EU), this risk
is also increasing in Europe – in Germany for example as a result of the General
Act on Equal Treatment (AGG). The HDI EPLI Line (Employment Practices Liability Insurance)
represents an comprehensive insurance solution for such eventualities.
Court judgements document different reasons for discrimination against employees.
These include personal discrimination based on gender, age, skin colour or religion
as well as promotion refusals, unjustified dismissal and sexual harassment in the
workplace. Not only are the people involved called to account, but so too are employers,
for example, on allegations of inactivity. HDI EPLI Line enables companies to insure
against the risks of litigation. Potential claims for compensation and compensation
for pain and suffering are also covered.
