Hiscox, the international specialist insurer, has introduced a new, comprehensive online management tool, HR Help, managed by Littler Mendelson (Littler), offering employers resources and guidance on complex and ever-changing employment laws.
HR Help is now available to Hiscox policyholders as part of Hiscox’s market-leading Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) coverage.
The tool gives Hiscox policyholders access to risk management tools as well as legal advice and resources from Littler, the world’s largest employment and labor firm.
HR Help contains a compendium of searchable online employment law resources and the ability to connect directly with legal experts at Littler as part of Hiscox’s EPLI coverage.
"Employers today face a growing list of challenges in a changing legal environment, ranging from a broader definition of disability and corresponding disability accommodation requirements to the expansion of family leave requirements and many more," said Bertrand Spunberg, Senior Vice President, Practice Leader — Executive Risks, for Hiscox USA.
"By joining forces with our partners at Littler, this new tool will give our policyholders unique access to powerful information from both their insurer and a best-in-class legal advisor to effectively manage their employment risks."
