Key Employee

A very important employee. A key employee may have contacts highly beneficial to the company, may work hard and generate more revenue than any other employee, or may have some other skill that would be difficult or impossible to replicate in another employee. Often, but not always, a key employee is a manager. A company may purchase key person insurance to protect itself against the possibility that an employee may unexpectedly die or become unable to work, which would deprive the company of his/her skills.
