Incorporated entities and their directors and officers continue to face greater corporate governance and increasing regulatory surveillance of the management of their business activities.
Traditionally directors’ & officers’ policies have been written to only protect the personal interests and assets of individual directors and officers. In the past any available cover for the entity under these policies has been limited only to optional extensions, such as employment practices liability cover and comes with the added risk of eroding the directors and officers’ policy limit.
Consequently, some incorporated entities have preferred to remain uninsured, exposing their owner directors and officers to the risk of expensive and time consuming litigation. This has been despite the fact that incorporated entities and their directors and officers are directly exposed to risky litigation from a variety of different sources such as minority shareholders, employees (unfair dismissal, discrimination and sexual harassment), creditors and State and Federal regulatory bodies (i.e. ACCC, ASIC and ATO).
