If you are faced with unexpected liability costs, management liability insurance can protect your business and personal assets, such as your home, from being sold to cover the cost of paying claims.
Exclusions and the excess you need to pay can vary greatly depending on your insurer.
Generally your policy won’t cover:
- Cyber crime, unless specifically set out in your policy (you can get cover extensions in some cases)
- Employee entitlements
- Property damage or bodily injury
There are other exclusions and conditions that we can outline for you.
A former employee claims they were wrongfully dismissed from your business because they were unwell at the time their position was terminated. They want to be reinstated to their role and remunerated for their loss of income while they were out of work. After numerous unsuccessful conciliation attempts, the matter is brought before a court and you have to pay damages to your former employee.
A Management Liability policy allows you to recover some or all of these costs so you can continue to run your business without having to sell your business or personal assets. Depending on your policy, you may be able to make a claim for your legal defence costs, as well as the amount paid to your former employee.
