The news
Austin, TX —  TMLT is excited to announce that on February 1, 2013, employment practices liability insurance (EPLI) will be added to all TMLT policies at no extra premium. TMLT physicians can rest easier knowing they will be covered at a time when employment-related lawsuits are expected to rise.

EPLI covers lawsuits caused by several employment-related events, including harassment, discrimination, FMLA violations, hostile work environment, and wrongful termination.

Limits of liability are $50,000 per claim (including both defense costs and indemnity payments) with a $5,000 deductible. The yearly aggregate limit is also $50,000. Higher limits are available for purchase.

If you are interested in becoming a TMLT policyholder, apply or call our sales department at 800-580-8658, extension 8603. If you are already covered by TMLT and have questions, please call 800-580-8658 and ask for your underwriter.
