Why would I, a California business, need to purchase Directors and Officers coverage?

Statistics show that businesses in California are more likely to face an employment claim than a property or general liability claim, yet many companies are unaware of this coverage. Once these claims manifest, they become an incredible draw on a business's assets. Out-of-court settlements in employments cases average $40,000. The median compensatory award is $218,000, with 10% of wrongful termination claims resulting in awards in excess of $1,000,000. The average cost of defense is in excess of $45,000. Many employers believe their general liability or workers' compensation policies protect them in these situations, the truth is, these policies do not.
