There are a variety of insurance policies and products on the market from many different insurers. This session will provide important guidance on negotiating favorable insurance provisions, and working through claims when they arise.  This is invaluable information as the EPL insurance is often available at reasonable rates, sometimes even added as endorsed coverage on another policy.  The acquisition of such coverage becomes an important adjunct to risk control and transfer and can save a company hundreds of thousands of dollars or more.

Date(s) & Time(s): 
Tuesday, June 26, 2012 - 4:00pm to 5:15pm
