Employment practices liability
When you have vicarious liability for something, it means you could be held legally responsible for any resulting harm even though you didn't directly cause it. For example, a tech company could be held accountable for the actions of an employee.
Want your insurer in your corner? A duty to defend policy makes it an insurer's obligation to provide legal defense for a lawsuit, instead of just compensating you for the claim.
