Employment Practices Liability Program

The Employment Practices Liability Program, effective July 1, 2015, provides a coverage agreement for employment and labour matters and access to a litigation pool. The program goals are to:

  • Achieve economies of scale on legal costs
  • Improve coordination of employment and labour issues
  • Ensure employment / labour issues are litigated in the most cost-effective way
  • Minimize duplication of legal services
  • Increase the predictability of costing for school districts

The B.C. Public School Employers' Association (BCPSEA) will administer the program and provide services directly to school districts.
