Being in a public position of authority is no easy task. There are many challenges that come with the territory, and just one mistake can have devastating consequences — one of the most common is being held personally liable in the event of an accident, misconduct or breach of the law.
That’s why it’s important to be protected against actual or alleged claims that may arise from situations with members of the community, suppliers and even employees. When you partner with CivicRisk Mutual, you can rely on our expertise to provide you with tailored management liability protection services that are designed to help you reduce and manage risk in a cost-effective manner.
How Does It Work?
CivicRisk’s management liability protection program provides financial assistance to help cover the costs of fines, penalties and professional legal advice for councillors, directors and council officers involved in a legal inquiry, breach of statute or wrongful act relating to their employment.
As with our other protection products, our members can take advantage of a combination of self-insured, group insurance and risk management support services. This approach ensures that you have the right level of cover for your needs and that your council officials are protected against the full range of risk exposures within the scope of their regular duties.
