Whilst Public Liability cover provides your business with protection against claims for third party property damage and bodily injury, your directors or officers (key managers) can still be personally liable for any alleged wrongful acts.

It is often believed that directors of a limited company are somehow protected and are not personally responsible for their corporate activities and decisions.

However, often the personal assets of a director or officer are at risk to in order to meet the costs required to defend any potential civil, criminal or regulatory proceeding brought against that person.

Still need some help? Take a look at our help and FAQs here...

Why is Management Liability Insurance needed?

As an example, a director might need a legal defence against a criminal prosecution which could ultimately lead to a fine or imprisonment, or a civil prosecution which could result in compensation awards or potential director disqualification. A decision or action made by a director could be considered a wrongful act, such as a breach of trust, neglect, error, breach of duty, misleading statement or wrongful trading all whilst acting in the capacity of their role.

Directors’ and Officers’ Liability insurance can be used to defend against:

  • Claims from investors or shareholders
  • Police or Serious Fraud Office enquiries
  • HSE investigations
  • Employment disputes

Some insurers offer extended cover to include Employment Practices Liability and Corporate Legal Liability.

What is Employment Practices Liability (EPL) insurance?

Employment Practises Liability insurance protects the business/organisation from claims arising from their employees relating to their legal rights being potentially breached. This could include claims allegations made in relation to:

  • Discrimination (age, race, gender, disability etc)
  • Wrongful Dismissal
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Breach of Contract
What is Corporate Legal Liability (CLL) insurance?

Corporate Legal Liability insurance protects the business or organisation against claims relating for ‘wrongful acts’ such as; Breach of Contract/Duty/Trust, Misleading statements,  Copyright Infringement.   This is similar to directors & officers liability however; it covers the business/organisation rather than the individual director or officer. The business or organisation is a separate legal entity, meaning it can be sued directly.
