Limit the damage of unintentional legislative breaches

Statutory Liability Insurance can protect your organisation and its individuals from penalties and fines for unintentional  breaches of legislation. 

If you're ordered by a regulatory body to pay a monetary penalty and/or legal expenses, this insurance can help cover your costs.

Cover for penalties imposed under:

  • Work Health and Safety legislation*

  • Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) (some exceptions apply)

  • Australian Securities & Investments Commission Act 2001 (Cth)

  • Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth)

  • Environment Protection legislation


  • Covers penalties and prosecution as well as defence legal costs

  • Up to $2 million cover

*Cover excludes monetary penalties imposed under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (NSW)

How does statutory liability insurance work?

Statutory Liability Insurance in action

A student drowns while swimming in a pool with classmates and teachers during a school camp. 

A WorkSafe investigation is launched to find out who or what was responsible.

Because the school has Statutory Liability Insurance, CCI appoints lawyers to represent the school and the teachers who were present when the student drowned.

WorkSafe finds no fault, no prosecution is made, and the legal costs, amounting to $175,000, are covered by CCI.
