Fast, Simple and Convenient

Management Liability Insurance is not required for your business. This insurance will cover you for additional costs such as the cost of defending a legal case, replacing property that has been lost, and professional fees for audits.

What cover does a Management Liability Policy include?

This covers the Company from claims made by employees in relation to their employment conditions, or breaches of employment laws. This can include claims alleging bullying/harassment or wrongful dismissal.

– Crime

Provides cover for your direct financial loss, as a result of theft or attempted theft from your business by an employee or through a fraudulent act committed by a Third Party.

– Statutory Liability / Fines & Penalties

This section covers the company, senior management and employees for allegations of wrongful breaches of key legislation. For example, WH&S laws (for certain jurisdictions only), Industrial Relations laws or the Privacy Act.
