The National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) requires that its contract advisors maintain professional liability insurance. The NFLPA even has a preffered company to handle such matters. The Canadian Football League Players Association (CFLPA) may soon be doing the same thing. The players’ association has sent out a survey to its licensed contract advisors to see if they think that it should be a requirement that all contract advisors have professional liability insurance.
Within the email sent out by Stu Laird, the CFLPA’s President, it states,
Before a decision is made in this respect, we wish to know whether there is a need for such an insurance program and also the views of the contract advisors with respect to the implementation of such a program.
