Allied World Bermuda EPL Offer

November 18, 2011

Allied World Assurance Company Holdings, AG announced today [Nov.18] that Allied World Bermuda has launched a new primary employment practices liability [EPL] product for companies needing a comprehensive coverage package.

The product, 32°/64°, offers flexible retention options and built-in punitive and exemplary damages coverage, thereby removing the need to purchase a separate puni-wrap policy.

32°/64° provides protection for the significant expenses associated with defending employment-related claims, as well as the substantial costs of paying a judgment or settlement.

This policy provides broad coverage safeguards for employers against claims made by current, former or prospective employees for discrimination [age, race, sex, disability, etc.], wrongful termination, sexual harassment, retaliation, and other employment-related allegations. No industry class is excluded and limits are available up to $25 milllion.

Ed Moresco, Senior Vice President, Bermuda and International Professional Lines Product Line Manager, commented, “Unfortunately, in today’s environment it is no longer a matter of whether an employer will be the target of an EPL claim; it is simply a matter of when.

“Our 32°/64° product offers complete protection for our clients in the event of a severe employment-related claim while granting them the flexibility they require.”

Allied World Assurance Company Holdings, AG, through its subsidiaries, is a global provider of innovative property, casualty and specialty insurance and reinsurance solutions, offering superior client service through a global network of offices and branches.
