What is Directors and Officers Liability Insurance?

Directors and Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance protects corporate directors and officers against allegations that they performed their duties improperly. “Wrongful acts" might include actual or alleged errors, omissions, misleading statements, negligence, or breach of duty.


Who is covered under the NADCO Plan?

Directors, officers, committee members, employees, volunteers, and independent contractors are protected.


Is Employment Practices Liability Covered?

Yes, it is covered. Employment practices liability insurance (EPLI) protects against employee and volunteer lawsuits with claims such as wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment, breach of contract, and others.


Does the plan provide Professional Liability Insurance?

Yes, the plan covers professional liability insurance. Commonly referred to as errors and omissions insurance (E&O Insurance), professional liability insurance protects against claims alleging errors, omissions, negligence, breach of duty, and other similar acts. 


Why do I need insurance?

When you face a lawsuit, the costs can be staggering. Even if you are found not liable, the associated legal fees can pose a significant financial burden to your organization. Professional liability insurance provides vital financial support that will mitigate the financial burden of the legal process. Please note that this coverage will not diminish the likelihood of a potential lawsuit against your organization, but will ensure you are more prepared should one occur.  

In addition, it’s important to note that having professional liability insurance does not make you any more likely to be sued than if you did not carry coverage. It simply makes you more prepared if a lawsuit is brought against you.
