Professional Indemnity Overview
Our professional indemnity section covers an Agency’s legal liability to pay compensation to a third party arising out of a breach or alleged breach of their professional duty of care.
- all Queensland Government Agencies insured with QGIF.
- the Agency’s employees, Board and/or Committee members, as well as volunteers where:
- an Agency agrees to indemnify an Agency employee, volunteer, Board and/or Committee member under the Queensland Government Indemnity Guidelines (as amended from time to time). The indemnity process is not determined by QGIF. The Agency’s employees, board members, committee members or volunteers, who have been granted indemnity, will be covered under the QGIF policy.
- civil liability in relation to the conduct of an Agency employee, volunteer, Board and/or Committee member attaches to the Agency pursuant to a Queensland law (e.g. Section 26c of the Public Service Act 2008 (Qld)).
