Liability Insurance for Federal Employees and Contractors

FEDS January 2024 Newsletter

Happy New Year

We hope your 2024 is off to a great and productive start! We want to continue the tradition of our first newsletter of the year expressing our gratitude to the federal employees and public servants who keep our government operating and country safe. Thank you for trusting FEDS Protection to be your professional liability insurance (PLI) provider and to help protect your career and financial security. We are humbled and honored to serve the federal community.

While each New Year typically marks a clean slate with new opportunities, federal managers can also use the occasion to reflect on the previous challenges of the past to move forward. Many issues, along with new obstacles, will surely follow federal managers into 2024.  

Every federal employee has some level of liability exposure, but federal managers may be at a greater risk than they realize this year. Even if workplace allegations are ultimately untrue, the cost of defending against an adverse administrative action, disciplinary proceeding, or civil lawsuit can be devastating. However, professional liability insurance from FEDS Protection is available to help protect federal managers and supervisors when the unexpected happens.

The New Year is a great time to evaluate your financial and career stability.  Going into 2024, a PLI policy from FEDS Protection is a valuable layer of security and peace of mind for federal managers.  If you are the subject of an investigation or allegation centered on actions taken within the scope of your employment, having PLI can make an enormous difference in how such a situation would affect your career and your financial security.  Below, FEDS Protection has put together a short video highlighting the difference having a PLI policy makes:

We hope each of you can play a small part in the path toward progress and continue to do so in your own way. We will continue to stand with you in this effort every step of the journey.

"You already know that FLEOA’s legal assistance and representation are only a phone call away. What you might not know is that you also need the protection of a professional liability policy. FLEOA worked with the DOJ and other associations to get the legislation passed so your agency would pay for half the premium – because you need it – for civil suits aka Bivens actions, as well as potential criminal investigation. I recommend FEDS for every FLEOA member.”
- Lawrence Berger (FLEOA General Counsel)
