Public Entity Management Liability Insurance

What is public entity management liability insurance? 

Public entity management liability insurance provides coverage for a loss caused by a wrongful act committed while conducting duties by or on behalf of a public entity. 

Many insurers address these exposures by offering a blended insurance product for both public entity management liability (PEML) claims and employment practices liability (EPL) claims with one single policy limit. EPL claims tend to have frequency along with severity and can quickly erode your limits of coverage. At Travelers, we offer stand-alone public entity management liability coverage so payment of employment-related claims will not erode the limits available for PEML claims.
