D&O Liability Insurance Claims Procedure

Insurance claim forms

The D&O Policy covers lawsuits that arise out of actual or alleged wrongful acts in the running of a league. This coverage is for the local league/organization itself, directors, officers and other volunteers. Examples of lawsuits that could possibly be covered include:

  • Discrimination (age, sex, handicap, etc.)
  • Wrongful dismissal, rejection or suspension of league personnel or players
  • Acts beyond authority granted in bylaws
  • Failure to deliver services
  • Violation of state and federal laws (anti-trust, IRS, EEOC)
  • Suppression of First Amendment Rights (speech, expression, etc.)
  • Failure to properly manage league financial affairs

It is our recommendation that you report all claims (written demands for payment of damages or other actions) regardless of whether, in your opinion, there is liability or not. The attorneys for the insurance company can determine this.
