CCS carries insurance that covers employees if they are sued as a result of actions taken within the scope of their duties at CCS. This insurance provides for the cost of legal defense as well as financial settlements. The total amount of coverage per claim is $5,000,000. The aggregate coverage for a single year is also $5,000,000.
Scope of duties for a faculty member would include anything reasonably expected in the course of their teaching and administrative duties, any assigned tasks by CCS as well as assigned student mentoring responsibilities. This coverage includes defense costs as well. This coverage would not apply in those cases where an employee or faculty member has actually committed an unlawful act, as such acts are generally not insurable.
