Workers' Compensation

Domestic employees often work so closely with their employer that they are considered a part of the family. However, no matter how long-standing the relationship may be, it’s always a possibility a domestic employee could file a lawsuit if they’re injured on the job or feel their rights have been violated.

Benefits of Domestic Employee-Related Insurance Solutions

Workers’ compensation and employment practices liablity insurance (EPLI) work together to provide seamless coverage for domestic employee-related risks. 

  • EPLI offers protection for wrongful employment act claims made by an employee
  • Workers’ compensation insurance provides coverage for the cost of medical care and rehabilitation for injured workers, lost wages, and death benefits for dependents
  • Dedicated claims advocacy helps resolve claims quickly and with as little disruption as possible
  • High-limit, flexible coverage options

Avoid unexpected workers’ compensation expenses

Whether you employ a full- or part-time nanny, babysitter, elder-caregiver, housekeeper, landscaper, or even repairperson, employers can be held liable for the occupational injury or disease incurred by a worker regardless of who’s at fault. It’s essential to make sure you have the right insurance protection in place to protect yourself from a potential lawsuit. 

Make sure you understand your local, state, and federal employment laws — some jurisdictions may also mandate disability insurance.

Protect yourself against employment practices-related lawsuits

While a workers’ compensation policy covers expenses related to an employee’s injury or illness incurred on the job, employment practices liability (EPLI) insurance offers protection from the financial consequences of various types of employment-related lawsuits. 

Most homeowners and personal liability insurance policies don’t provide coverage for defense of or damages resulting from employment practices. Instead, EPLI is the solution that covers defense costs, settlements, and jury awards related to wrongful employment act claims made by an employee. If you employ a domestic worker, the risk of an underinsured, uninsured, or undocumented employee can be considerable.
