Contractual Liability Workshop
CEUs: 2

Speaker(s): Bill Perkins

Suitable for all agency staff, this course reviews contractual liability coverage provided by the ISO commercial general liability policy (CGL), the contractual exclusion, and the coverage provided by the definition of insured contract. We will examine ISO Endorsements that change the contractual coverage of the CGL, categories of indemnity agreements, and the do’s and don’ts of certificates of insurance.
Given the material covered, the participants will be able to:

  • Describe ISO CGL contractual liability and insured contracts
  • Identify common ISO CGL endorsements that modify the contractual liability
  • Describe risk transfer and hold harmless agreements
  • Discuss risk management considerations for contractors and the do’s and don’ts of certificates of insurance

Bill graduated from Loyola University of the South and later joined a family-owned insurance agency in Orlando, Florida. After more than 12 years as a commercial insurance sales agent, he was hired by the Florida Association of Insurance Agents (FAIA) in 1993 as a commercial lines instructor. In addition to teaching the principal commercial insurance disciplines of business auto, commercial general liability, property, and workers’ compensation, Bill has interests in longshore and maritime employment coverage issues. He was also responsible for FAIA's annual Legislative Roundup sessions. Bill formerly served on the Florida Appeals Board of the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI), the Technical Affairs Committee of the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America (IIABA), and was a member of the Mid America Insurance Conference. Additionally, he was the Florida coordinator of ABEN, the Agent and Broker Education Network. In September 2014, Mr. Perkins joined Liberty Mutual as the Midwest region's senior training specialist and later incorporated the company’s Northeast region into his teaching responsibilities. His duties involve providing commercial insurance training and education for the states of Connecticut, the Dakotas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont and Wisconsin. Mr. Perkins has earned the Accredited Advisor in Insurance (AAI), the Associate in Risk Management (ARM), and Construction Risk and Insurance Specialist (CRIS) designations. As a frequent speaker at the International Risk Management Institute's Construction Risk Conference, Mr. Perkins earned IRMI’s Words of Wisdom Award in 2001 and in 2013, he received the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America Spirit of Education Award.
