ESG, BIPA and COVID Claims and EPLI Coverage Issues
Partners Tony Miscioscia and Scott Casher will be presenting a PLUS Webinar with Talene Megerian Carter, EPL Thought & Product Leader Claims Advocate, Director, FINEX at Willis Towers Watson and Rachel Freedman, Esq., Vice President - Head of Employment Practices Liability Claims at Sompo International.
ESG claims not only include those related to climate and corporate governance, but also include employment issues such as pay equity, workplace diversity, discrimination and harassment. COVID claims are expansive and often include a failure to comply with various federal and state leave laws, as well as workplace safety issues, work-from-home issues, and requests for reasonable accommodations under the Americans With Disabilities Act. Invasion of privacy claims brought by employees, under statutes such as the Illinois Biometric Privacy Act (BIPA), are on the rise, and can include allegations regarding the collection, storing and dissemination of employee biometric information such as fingerprints, voice recordings and even keystroke patters. This webinar will address employment practices liability insurance (EPLI) coverage issues as they relate to these types of claims regarding ESG, BIPA and COVID, and will include a discussion of what is “covered loss” under an EPLI policy, as well as whether claims can be severed and whether there is coverage for certain statutory violations.
