Professional Indemnity Insurance vs Management Liability Insurance

We often get questions from clients asking if management liability insurance is the same as professional indemnity insurance. While it is easy to understand why the two types of insurance cover could be interchangeable, they are totally different products.

Professional Indemnity Insurance protects your business against the ‘professional advice’ it provides. This type of insurance cover comes into play when a third party loses money.
Management Liability Insurance covers your company against ‘mismanagement’ that leads to third party financial losses.

A Closer Look: Unfair Dismissal

At one time, terminating someone’s employment was an in-house issue getting little, if any notice from outsiders. However, years of poor treatment, discrimination, nepotism, and the like led to strong protection for workers in the event of their dismissal.

While you may strive to be fair-minded and above board with any termination of workers, you can find your company, your directors, and yourself at the centre of a firestorm when you least expect it.

Unfair dismissal is one of the most common complaints against employers, and it continues to grow.
