Directors and Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance is designed to protect the personal assets of those people who serve as directors or officers of a company. The Directors And Officers’ coverage protects them from personal losses if they are sued by the organization’s employees, its’ vendors, customers, or other parties.
Any business, including private companies, public companies, and financial institutions with a board of directors really must have Directors & Officers liability insurance coverage.

Typical Directors And Officers’ Liability Exposure includes:
A company’s Directors and Officers can be sued for numerous reasons including but not limited to what follows:
An example of fraud is when a company’s directors or officers fail to disclose material facts. For instance, maybe inaccurate or just plain misleading information is provided to investors.
Misuse of Company Funds
Another example is when a company’s directors or officers use company funds in a less than responsible or even ethical way. For instance, it can be simple as funds were dedicated to personal uses and not for the betterment of the company.
Failure to Comply with Workplace Laws
Typical examples of a failure to comply with workplace laws might include a failure to pay the minimum wage, dictated by law; there’s a failure to pay required overtime wages; there can be a failure to provide rest periods and/or meal breaks. There have even been unlawful deductions from a person’s wages.
