    When making decisions on behalf of an incorporated entity, the management can be held personally libel for their actions on behalf of the company.

    Who needs management liability insurance?

    Individuals that accept roles as directors, officers and senior managers can be held personally libel. Therefore, management liability insurance is required to protect the personal assets of individuals that take leadership roles.

    Civil, regulatory and criminal allegations made against individuals and/or the company can be very costly and time consuming to defend, even if they're without merit. We've produced a guide called: Why company directors don’t need D&O insurance?

    Management liability insurance claims can arise from a wide range of sources. Having timely access to legal counsel who can advise on the best course of action, can resolve any issues quickly.

    What does management liability insurance cover?

    Each insurer's standard management liability insurance policy varies, however the broad covers are comparable under the below sections:


    D&O Insurance

    Employment Practice Liability

    Corporate Legal Liability

    Crime Insurance

    Social Engineering

    Additional Covers

    Management liability insurance has not always been purchased by small businesses but has become increasingly important in a litigious environment to protect against increasingly expensive legal costs.

    Management liability insurance definitions can vary, therefore it's worth considering the terms to consider what cover best meets your needs. 

    Directors & officers insurance

    Directors and officers (D&O) is the main cover offered under management liability and provides individuals financial protection from civil litigation and regulatory investigations, while acting in a managerial capacity on behalf of the company.

    The law generally seeks to protect individuals from personal liability where they have acted in good faith and complied with their responsibilities. However, any director, partner or employee acting in a managerial capacity on behalf of the company that fails to meet their legal obligations can be held personally liable.

    Employment practice liability

    Employment practice liability (EPL) offers financial protection under management liability from claims arising from a range of employment disputes (i.e. wrongful dismissal, harassment and discrimination).

    Dealing with employees can be highly emotive and if internal procedures aren't followed, you can leave yourself open to successful employment tribunal claims. With greater employee awareness of their rights and how to exercise them, the cost and resource to defend employment disputes can cause significant disruption.

    Corporate legal liability

    Corporate legal liability (CLL) offers the company financial protection under management liability from civil litigation and regulatory investigations. The insurance will protect against legal costs in defending allegations and damages.

    Corporate legal liability is similar to D&O insurance but will defend claims made against the company as opposed to individuals. Breach of contract, copyright infringement and corporate manslaughter are typically covered. Corporate legal liability can only be purchased in conjunction with D&O Insurance.

    Crime insurance

    Crime insurance offers the company financial protection under management liability for the theft of property, money or securities from employee dishonesty or fraud.

    Companies with inadequate controls are often the target of sophisticated criminal networks and disgruntled employees. Crime insurance can offer valuable protection against damaging criminal behaviour. Employee theft is the standard cover offered under crime insurance. However, some insurers have expanded this section to include cover for social engineering fraud.
