What is management liability insurance?
Management liability insurance fills the gaps in cover left by limited liability status and provides the protection senior management need should they find themselves in legal trouble. It brings together three areas of risk into one single policy:
- Directors and officers liability (D&O)
- Company legal liability (CLL)
- Employment practice liability (EPL).
It’s an essential cover for all limited companies.
What does management liability insurance cover?
Management liability insurance provides cover for a wide range of actions brought against you and your company, including:
- Corporate manslaughter
- Data breaches
- Environmental claims
- Health and safety claims
- Regulatory investigations.
In an increasingly litigious society, directors’ duties, actions and responsibilities are under greater scrutiny. Anyone from your employees, customers and suppliers to shareholders and competitors, could make a claim against you and your business. Even if a claim is false or is simply an allegation, you still have to defend it. This is why we recommend clients consider this vital insurance where appropriate.

Employment practice liability
Employment practice liability (EPL) offers financial protection under management liability against defence costs and awards of claims arising, for example, from allegations of sexual harassment or wrongful dismissal by employees.
Employee related disputes can be highly emotive. If internal procedures aren't correctly followed, you can leave yourself at risk to a successful employment tribunal claim, causing significant financial and resource disruption.
