  • Reduction and Control of Insurance Costs
  • Provided Supplemental Insurance Coverage
  • Coverage for "Excludable Items"
  • Customized Coverage- Industry Specific.
  • & More...

Industry: Food & Hospitality

Location: Nevada
Claim Information
Description:  A complaint was filed by an ex-employee against one of our Insureds with the Civil Rights Commission and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The complaint alleged retaliation and wrongful termination. After defending the complaint for some time, the Insured, at the advice of their counsel, opted to enter into a settlement agreement in order to stop incurring legal expenses. Notably, the settlement agreement included language which indicated that the Insured did not admit to any wrongdoing. Through their Captive Actual Net Loss Insurance Policy "Employment Practices Liability" coverage, the Insured was able to receive reimbursement for the amounts paid for legal fees and the settlement.
Line of Coverage:  Employment Practices Liability
This exposure was elected for coverage by the client under their Captive Policy. This resulted in a claim payment amount of approximately $135,000.
*Please note that each claim will undergo an independent investigation and thorough review process. Various components specific to the claim at hand will be assessed thoroughly to determine if the loss is covered by the policy.

By forming a captive insurance company, a business can dramatically lower insurance costs in comparison to premiums paid to a conventional property and casualty insurance company.
