Directors and Officers Insurance (D&O)

D&O liability coverage helps protect directors and officers from mistakes or wrongful acts in managing their company. This coverage can help pay for legal fees if claims are filed against your directors or officers from:
  • Employees
  • Vendors
  • Competitors
  • Investors
  • Customers
So, if your employee sues your business for wrongful termination, directors and officers insurance can help cover your legal costs. 

Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPL)

Employment practices liability insurance helps protect your business if employees file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) under federal laws like:
  • Title VII
  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act
  • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act

Fiduciary Liability Insurance

Fiduciary liability insurance can help protect your business from claims of fiduciary mismanagement. For example, if one of your staff members files a claim against you after their medical bills were not paid in accordance with the employee benefit plans you offer, fiduciary liability insurance can help cover your business.

Crime Insurance

Crime insurance can help cover business-related crimes, like employee theft, forgery or robbery. So, if your employee steals money out of your cash register, this coverage can help pay for your business’ financial losses.  

Kidnap and Ransom/Extortion

Kidnappers and extortionists often target businesses. This is especially true for companies that operate overseas. This policy can help cover kidnapping, ransom and extortion threats brought against business owners like you.
