Employee Dismissal

Claims Example

Directors & Officers and Company Liability insuring clauses provide indemnity for Claims resultant of a Wrongful Act committed by an Insured Person (being a Director, Officer or Employee) or the Company respectively.

Claims against either an Insured Person or Company can range from demands for compensation or damages to criminal or regulatory proceedings.

Companies regularly seek cover under the Employment Practices Liability extension for circumstances concerning Unfair Dismissal, harassment, discrimination and other related wrongful acts.

Unfair Dismissal claims are typically commenced in the Fair Work Commission via the lodgment of an Application by the claimant party.  BIA regularly responds to such applications with the aid of its specialist employment law panel partners and we aim to resolve such matters by the most appropriate means.
