What is Management liability insurance?

Management liability insurance is a type of liability insurance that helps to cover the directors and managers of a business. This cover can help when claims are lodged against managerial staff members when faced with accusations of not having met their duties as staff leaders. 

These actions can be mistakes or deliberate, both in the present and past. Some examples of these wrong-doings include fraudulent acts, wrongful dismissal, breach of intellectual property rights and more.

Who is affected by management liability claims?

There is a whole host of parties introduced when considering management liability claims arising for both public and private companies. The main managerial members that require cover include business owners, directors or senior managers. 

Claims lodged against a business’s staff can come from a multitude of other parties including employees, competitors, creditors, regulators, customers, administrators and shareholders.

We offer various types of management liability insurance cover, including:

Employment Practices Cover

Provides cover to the company, directors, officers and employees for claims made by current, past and prospective employees. It addresses issues arising from employment practices, harassment, unfair dismissal and other employment issues.


Statutory Cover

Provides cover for fines and penalties relating to breaches of the law. It can also include environmental laws, occupational health and safety, as well as worker’s compensation.


Crime Cover

Comprehensive crime coverage provides protection to the company for dishonest acts such as theft and fraud by employees.


Entity Cover

Provides coverage for claims made against the actual organisation, rather than the directors and officers.


Directors and Officers

This type of cover will protect the past, present and future Directors and Officers, plus anyone else involved in the management of a company for claims alleging a wrongful act.


Superannuation Trustees Cover

Provides cover against mismanagement of funds or if a trustee responsibility breach occurs when a company has a sponsored staff superannuation fund.
