Management Liability Insurance Protection for a Company and its Directors

The business world is changing and you and your company are at risk now more than ever before – Management Liability Insurance

Most private companies operate without the knowledge that serious loopholes exist for management related risks. Often this area is ignored and company directors and officers are directly exposed to financial risks and well as the entity itself

Management Liability Insurance has been created to offer the company (or other entity) and the directors secure protection – It is much more encompassing than the covers offered under a traditional directors and officers insurance as it protects both the personal assets (wealth) of the directors and offices as well as the company itself

Management Liability Insurance is not a stand alone item usually but a cover to enhance the protection of the existing insurance programme

Comprehensive management liability insurance

Comprehensive management liability insurance covers both the directors personally and the company for claims made by or resulting from government agencies, OH&S breaches, creditors, legislative breaches, competitors and shareholders.

It rolls several insurance policies into one for complete protection for a comprehensive range of management exposures. These include:

  • Directors and Officers Insurance covering directors personally for legal action taken against them by shareholders, creditors and government bodies associated with wrongful acts, insolvent trading, breaches of OH&S legislation or Corporations Law, misuse of confidential or copyrighted information and more.
  • Employment Liability Insurance covering directors personally and the company for employment related claims such as failure to employ, failure to promote, workplace discrimination, sexual harassment and workplace bullying
  • Superannuation Trustees Liability Insurance covering the trustee for breach of their professional duty in the management of the company superfund
  • Employee Crime Insurance covering directors personally and the company for financial loss suffered as a result of fraudulent or dishonest acts committed by employees.
  • Crisis Loss and Public Relations Insurance covering directors personally and the company for situations where an event may cause the business to suffer an imminent decrease of total consolidated annual revenue of 30% or more. The insurer will pay for a specialist external crisis consulting team to provide their services to prevent or minimise a loss.
