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?  FEDS Protection President Tony Vergnetti discusses 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 explains why PLI is so important, and why FEDS Protection is the PLI provider trusted by the nation’s leading federal government associations.

For Law Enforcement Officers: Unlocking the power of emotions at work

The pursuit of an “emotion-free workplace” undermines that which makes us human: our feelings, including their influence on everyday performance. Each of us, consciously or not, experience hundreds of emotions each day. Imagining that our success in the workplace requires us to deny the existence of emotions is no more realistic than imagining a driver reaching her destination by ignoring the weather, traffic, and time of day. Andrea will share findings from two decades of research on emotions and emotion skills, offer practical ways to apply emotion skills in the workplace, and share the immense benefits of harnessing the wisdom of emotions at work. Jean and Brenda will provide insight on how to apply these skills and why it is more important than ever.

Coronovirus Liability Exposures for Federal Employees

Lawmakers are circulating at least four proposals to establish a coronavirus commission to investigate missteps and policy holes that led to the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. If you’re familiar with the 9/11 commission, you know that intelligence and law enforcement agency personnel had their actions and inactions placed under scrutiny and were then called to testify in the proceedings. The same holds true for similar tragedies where there is an overwhelming desire to assign blame. The Coronavirus blame game along with the expected contentiousness of the election will undoubtedly exacerbate blame and accountability for federal employees.

If you work for any of the federal agencies involved in the Coronavirus preparedness or response, don’t miss this webinar on your liability exposures and the protections available to you.
