Who needs Directors and Officers (D&O) Liability insurance?
Board of directors insurance can be specific to cover only the corporate executives or it can be broadened to include employees, company attorneys, consultants and volunteers.
This policy can serve as a management errors and omissions liability insurance and can benefit the senior leadership in a variety of organizations—it isn’t limited to just for-profit enterprises.
Private and public firms, institutions and associations, and not-for-profit organizations can shield their company managers from expensive legal fees and loss of personal assets with board of directors insurance.
How does a Directors and Officers Insurance policy protect you?
Management liability lawsuits can originate from a number of sources such as:
- Shareholders and investors
- Customers and Vendors
- Employees & HR-related issues
- Regulatory Agencies
D&O insurance can cover defense costs associated with a variety of claims related to unintentional acts that were not made for unlawful compensation or profit, but occurred as a result of your duties:
- Breach of contract
- Failure to comply with regulations
- Errors and omissions in reporting
- Negligent acts
- Misrepresentation of company assets
Board member insurance generally covers monetary damages and doesn’t cover bodily injury or property losses because those incidents are typically covered under the organization’s GLC (general liability coverage).
