Caught in the Spotlight:  Why Federal Managers Become the Face of Government Scandals, and How PLI Can Protect You




On August 26, FEDS President & Founder Tony Vergnetti & FEDS Director of Federal Employee Programs Brenda Wilson hosted a webinar titled "Caught in the Spotlight:  Why Federal Managers Become the Face of Government Scandals, and How PLI Can Protect You.”  Whenever and wherever you turn on the news, you will see coverage of ongoing "scandals” within the federal government. 


While these controversies are mostly prompted by decisions made at the highest levels, the public face of a government scandal often becomes a long-serving career federal manager who is made to be the scapegoat.  If you are a federal manager, are you prepared for the spotlight and intense media scrutiny that may come with an investigation into your office’s conduct? 


In the webinar, Mr. Vergnetti and Brenda Wilson discussed how Professional Liability Insurance (PLI) is a critical piece of any federal manager’s playbook:  an insurance policy that will provide you with legal representation in the event of a civil, administrative, or criminal action that arises from actions taken in your scope of employment.  Mr. Vergnetti also detailed why PLI is so important, and why FEDS Protection is the PLI provider trusted by the nation’s leading federal government associations.

Why Federal Managers & Supervisors Need PLI


In addition to the August webinar focusing on the workplace exposures of federal managers, this month FEDS also released a new fact sheet detailing the specific liabilities federal managers have on the job, as well as the coverage that a PLI policy from FEDS Protection provides.  Many federal managers are also unaware of a major workplace benefit—their agency is required to reimburse up to 50% of the cost of a professional liability insurance policy.
