What Us Covered by Officers and Directors Insurance?
This type of policy protects the members of a board and the officers of a company against individual lawsuits and claims. Depending on the needs of the company and the way the policy is written, this type of insurance can cover:
- The cost of legal fees incurred by individuals serving on boards or as officers if they are subjects of a lawsuit
- The cost of indemnification of individuals who serve on the board or as officers if the company is sued
These policies can also eliminate coverage disputes if both the company as a whole and individual members of a board or officers of a company are the subjects of a lawsuit.
Why Do I Need This Type of Coverage?
One of the frequent costs of doing business is the cost of fighting or settling lawsuits. Claims that often involve directors and officers include those based on:
- Poor performance of stock
- Illegal employment practices
- Mismanagement or failure to exercise fiduciary oversight
- Misrepresentation in a prospectus, report or other documents and reports
- Failure to adhere to relevant laws and regulations
- Violations of environmental regulations and laws
- Cyber liability and theft of computer-based information
- ERISA claims
This type of coverage seldom covers acts of fraud, some aspects of insider trading, property damage and bodily injury, and illegal compensation schemes.
