Wrongful Failure To Grant Tenure Or Partnership

Wrongful Failure To Grant Tenure or Partnership


A type of claim most frequently made against educational institutions and professional organizations (typically law and accounting firms). Such actions assert that despite having met all requirements for tenure/partnership, such as working a required number of years, publishing a specific number of books or professional papers, or receiving a certain rating in professional/teaching evaluations, the individual has unfairly been denied tenure/partnership.

Employment practices liability insurance (EPLI) policies written for professional organizations and educational institutions routinely cover allegations of wrongful denial of tenure or partnership as a standard peril.

Coverage for wrongful denial of tenure or partnership encompasses both the cost of defending the educational institution/professional firm against such allegations and payment of any settlements or judgments associated with these claims.
