Directors and officers (D&O) liability insurance protects the personal assets of corporate directors and officers, and their spouses, in the event they are personally sued by employees, vendors, competitors, investors, customers, or other parties, for actual or alleged wrongful acts in managing a company.

Cyber Liability

Cyber liability insurance covers financial losses that result from data breaches and other cyber events. Many policies include both first-party and third-party coverages. First-party coverages apply to losses sustained by your company directly.

Employee Benefits Liability

Employee Benefits Liability insurance provides coverage to an employer for errors
or omissions in the employer’s administration of its employee benefits program. For example, if a new employee requests to receive medical insurance through the employer and the employer failed to add the new employee to the plan. Then the health insurance company later denies coverage for the employee’s medical claim.

The Employee Benefits Liability coverage would pay for the benefits that would have been payable under the health insurance plan but for the employer’s error. This coverage applies to a wide range of employee benefits including health, life and disability insurance, retirement plans, and other benefits offered through plans administered by the employer.
