Educator Employment Liability Insurance

Through NEA you have access to professional liability insurance through the EEL program. The program is completely dues-funded; you pay no separate fee. EEL is designed to protect you — whether you're a classroom teacher or support professional — from personal financial liability for most incidents arising out of your educational employment activities or duties.

The EEL Program provides insurance coverage for a variety of situations that result in injury to someone other than yourself. For example:

  • Student injuries
  • Charges of educational malpractice
  • Corporal punishment

In Washington the EEL Program is administered through the WEA. Liability and insurance laws vary in each state. Visit NEA for more details about the program and contact Katie Richardson for information on the specific provisions of EEL coverage in Washington.
