Now, more than ever, we want to communicate to the entire federal community—not just law enforcement and management officials – that a professional liability policy is necessary to protect against administrative, disciplinary, civil and criminal exposure. With the changing landscape of the federal community, new workplace rules, new threats and technology, increased workloads and political demands, the potential existence of a claim or suit continues to grow.
There is a vast amount of miscommunication about Professional Liability Insurance and the exposure federal employees face. As a former federal employee and attorney who also defended federal employees in my private law practice, Tony Vergnetti founded FEDS with the express purpose to educate employees about their professional exposure; and to offer coverage and claims administration specifically tailored to meet the changing needs of all federal employees.
FEDS has assembled a nationally recognized panel of attorneys who have a vast amount of experience in representing federal employees and law enforcement officers in all types of investigations, disciplinary proceedings, civil and criminal actions. FEDS and its panel of attorneys listen to and work with those organizations, associations, government officials and other experts that are most familiar with the exposures you face to ensure that we are always current and can respond to your specific needs.
A professional liability policy is so important to the career and financial security of all federal employees. We have worked with and represented employees who have had professional protections in place and with those who did not. When starting their federal careers, none of them could foresee a situation in which a professional exposure would arise. We would like to give you as much information as possible about the benefits of having liability protection in place.
