Directors and Officers Insurance

Company directors have an obligation to make decisions in the best interest of the business and are under immense pressure to meet the expectations of all stakeholders.

However, despite having good intentions, mistakes can happen and as the company director you are at risk of being held personally liable for allegations of a breach of duty or wrongful acts.

Directors and Officers Liability Insurance protects Directors and Officers against legal liabilities they may sustain personally whilst managing a corporation.

Do I need Directors & Officers Insurance?

Whether you are found liable for any claims brought against you or the business, the investigation costs and reputational damage from lengthy legal proceedings can be significant.

In your position, you may be exposed to claims brought against you by:

  • Shareholders
  • Employees (including claims for wrongful dismissal, harassment or failure to employ or promote)
  • Statutory bodies (including alleged breaches of a Director’s responsibilities or investigations commenced by WorkCover following a work incident)
  • Competitors (including allegations of conduct involving anti-competitive behaviour)
  • The Corporation itself (including actions by a liquidator on behalf of the company alleging insolvent trading)

Therefore, if you are a Director or Officer of a corporation or business, it is recommended that you take out Directors and Officers Insurance.
