Employment Practices Liability (EPLI) for Nonprofit Organizations

Nonprofit organizations are subject to the same types of employment related claims that for-profit businesses face.  If your nonprofit organization has volunteers, employees, or works with a third-party in any way you should make sure you have an employment practices liability policy in place. Employment practices liability insurance protects your nonprofit organization in the event of the following types of allegations:

  1. Sexual Harassment
  2. Wrongful termination – including volunteers
  3. Discrimination
  4. Unfair hiring practices
  5. Hostile work/volunteer environment

In today’s economy, employees that have been laid off are looking for ways to financially support themselves and are filing allegations against their previous employers. Make sure your nonprofit is protected with an employment practices liability insurance or EPLI policy today.


A volunteer at a local nonprofit organization intended to send an off-the-wall joke to just one email recipient, but instead sent the email to the nonprofit organization’s entire list of donors and co-volunteers.  One of those volunteers was relieved of her volunteering duties a few months later and sued the nonprofit organization for allowing a hostile work/volunteer environment.

A nonprofit social service organization was recently looking to add new volunteers to their volunteer staff.  After receiving numerous applications from their local community, they chose a handful of volunteers.  One of the applicants filed a lawsuit against the nonprofit organization alleging discrimination, as the only volunteers chosen were all male.
