Protect your management staff with a D&O insurance policy from JRO Insurance.
The success of an organization boils down to the talent and expertise of its directors and senior officers. While a talented workforce is essential, without the proper guidance all that talent is wasted. In the eyes of the public, and more importantly in the eyes of investors and shareholders, it is the directors and officers that bear the ultimate responsibility for success or failure.
Directors & officers liability insurance is a type of professional liability coverage designed to protect the directors and officers of your business if they are faced with a lawsuit relating to their performance on the job. D&O insurance can be considered a managerial errors and omissions policy. Although it is similar to errors & omissions insurance, directors and officers liability coverage is concerned with the performance and duties of management, not the products and services of the company.
A D&O insurance policy often includes employment practices liability and fiduciary liability. Employment practices liability protects employers in cases and claims made by an employee or former employee. This type of coverage generally deals with discrimination and harassment suits.
