Most dentists recognize that employees are their most valuable assets in running an efficient practice. However, those who are business owners or administrators are still vulnerable to allegations regarding employment practices.
If you've chosen the Employment Practices Liability (EPL) option as part of your TDIC Professional & Dental Business Liability policy, your coverage pays for defense costs, settlements and civil damages you might incur, and be legally obligated to pay, as a result of an actual or alleged wrongful employment act claimed by an employee or applicant.
The following scenarios are covered by EPL:
- Age Discrimination
- Sexual Harassment and Wrongful Termination
- Religious Discrimination
- Racial Discrimination
- Disability Discrimination
Report a Claim
Once you submit your claim, a TDIC claims representative will contact you as soon as possible to verify information, ask questions, explain coverage and begin processing it.
Every dental office has its own culture, conditions of employment and benefits. Established office guidelines protect you from potential employment practices liability claims and foster a more productive team. Explore our risk management resources to learn more.
