XL Catlin issued a new environmental insurance product in Ireland designed to address new guidance from the Environmental Protection Agency. Starr Companies paired with a law firm to provide Employment Practices Liability insureds a risk management program that helps address loss and reduces employment claims.
XL Catlin has debuted a new environmental insurance product in Ireland designed to address the Environmental Protection Agency’s Guidance on Financial Provision for Environmental Liabilities.
This guidance, published in October 2015, notes in part that general third-party liability policies won’t be acceptable as a financial provision. Instead, the EPA introduced nine requirements for specialist environmental impairment liability policies.
Specifically, the EPA requires licensed companies, with a financial provision built into their licenses, to put protections in place to safeguard against financial impacts of pollution incidents. The financial provision is designed to better protect both the licensee and the public from the fallout of environmental accidents.
Starr Companies has inked a deal with Jackson Lewis P.C. to offer Employment Practices Liability insureds a risk management program that helps address loss and reduces employment claims.
It is available at no additional cost to Starr’s qualifying Employment Practices Liability clients, with services provided online.
The program provides Starr insureds with a number of tools, including an employment practices checklist to help develop workplace policies and procedures, mini-webinars on a variety of employment issues, access to an employment liability blog and interactive online training.
Also, qualifying Starr insureds get up to one hour of no-cost consultation with a Jackson Lewis attorney.
