When your employer defends and indemnifies you, the Legal Defense Fund will provide an experienced attorney to monitor your case.

If there is:

  • a legal conflict of interest between you and your employer
  • inadequate representation by your employer or
  • a considerable likelihood that punitive damages could be awarded against you

You will be provided with independent counsel.

This benefit is available no matter what agency does the investigation, whether Local, State or Federal.
