BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Ironshore, HELPLINE provide public-entity employment practices support


HAMILTON, Bermuda—Ironshore Inc. and The Workplace HELPLINE L.L.C. are partnering to provide an employment practices support line program for public entities.

Called the EPLI Helpline, the program allows clients to direct specific questions to specialized employment attorneys about more than 50 risk management, human resources, employment law and compliance issues. Documented responses are returned within 24 hours.

“Employers confront continuously changing employment laws regarding compliance with federal and state regulations, hiring practices, workforce reduction protocols, harassment, discrimination, and medical leave issues, such as the Family Medical Leave Act that are among today’s top human resource issues,” said Susan Kostro, senior vp of the specialty casualty division, in a statement. “The new EPLI Helpline is designed to provide timely responses to employers’ questions regarding how to manage risk exposure through their respective workplace employment policies and practices.”

The specialty division will be working with Boston-based HELPLINES’s public entity group. The service will include toll-free and website submission access, as well as access to unlawful-harassment training for supervisors and employees, a state-by-state employee handbook builder and webinars and alerts approved by the Human Resource Certification Institute.
