What is Management Liability Insurance?

Management liability insurance gives the necessary protection against the potential dangers of running a business. The management of a business can be under constant threat of exposures and risks, which can lead to mismanagement claims by third parties. If a company does not provide reassurance to its leaders that they will be backed in case their decision proves to be wrong, it can lead to restrained and risk-averse management, preventing company’s growth. A surprising claim can put your business and individual financial position into jeopardy. Moreover, contrary to common belief, if a third-party claims that your mismanagement caused losses to others, it will not be covered by professional liability insurance.

What does Management Liability Insurance Cover?

Management Liability Insurance covers the exposures faced by the company’s management. It is a great tool for minimizing potential losses for the directors, managers and other key company entities. Management liability insurance protects them from alleged or legitimate claims of mismanaging the company. It also provides sufficient protection against financial loss for the business and its management for pecuniary penalties, civil fines, and alleged wrongful activities, while protecting the personal assets of members of the company. Management Liability Insurance can be broad and provide many forms of cover.

Directors and Officers Liability

Directors and Officers Liability insurance is designed to protect the past, present, and future management of a business. It can cover anyone involved in the management of a company, both directors and employees alike. It provides protection from claims for acts such as:

  • Engagement in unfair Competition
  • Breach of fiduciary duty or fraud
  • Insolvent trading
  • Negligence
  • Defamation
  • Misappropriation of Trade secrets

Entity Cover

Entity cover provides direct coverage of your business, not its management. In cases when a lawsuit names the insured company as a defendant, director’s & officer’s (D&O) liability insurance will not provide the necessary coverage. Often seen as an extension of D&O coverage, it covers the organization and its management as one entity.

Employment Practices Liability

Employment Practices Liability provides coverage for claims made by current or past employees against the company’s management. Bullying, sexual harassment, unfair dismissal, and discrimination claims can arise, and the management liability insurance provides the necessary protection for these employment issues.

Does your company need Management Liability Insurance?

Many company owners often overlook the importance of management liability insurance. If directors and officers are exposed to personal liability, the future and reputation of the business may be destroyed, and the members of the management may be forced to give up personal assets or even face jail time. Having insurance to as a backup can empower directors and managers to lead with self-trust and enthusiasm.
