Occupational Liability Plan
In the event a faculty member is sued, it is not necessarily the case that the University or Oregon would represent, defend, or indemnify them.
The AFT occupational liability insurance is a strong backup that our faculty have long needed. This insurance may be available if a faculty member is sued, or threatened with suit for
• information cited in a research publication;
• content or conduct of courses; or
• financial or fiduciary misconduct.
Coverage is provided for claims arising out of incidents that take place during the policy period. Note that the defendant must be a member in good standing at the time of the incident. If you have questions about your occupational insurance with AFT, please feel free to come by the office for a brochure.
