EMPLOYERS’ BENEFITS LIABILITY INSURANCE
As an employer your clients are responsible for the health and safety of your employees whilst they are at work. Should their employees be injured at work or become ill as a result they may be able to claim compensation. Employer’s liability insurance enables your clients business to meet the cost of compensation awarded to injured employees as well as associated legal costs.
ERRORS & OMISSIONS INDEMNITY PROTECTS AGAINST COMPENSATION CLAIMS
There is no limit in Canada as to how much a compensation claim could be. This means a serious case could be in the thousands or even millions. Professional indemnity insurance protects your client by covering the cost of a claim for compensation against them. But even if a court case is unsuccessful, your client can also claim back the cost of defending themselves in court, and receive legal advice through-out the process.
TENANTS LEGAL LIABILITY
Tenants Legal Liability (TLL) covers your clients, legal liability in cases where the tenant causes fire damage to the rented property. If you rent a portion of a strip mall and your clients have a fire then their tenant legal liability will cover the damages to the area they occupy. For commercial and business insurance your clients commercial general liability coverage will step up for properties that ad-join theirs that may have been damaged.
Most insurance policies won’t cover the fixing of faulty workmanship or even the damage that is caused, or even aggravated, by faulty workmanship. Faulty workmanship is manufacturing or installation that is done poorly or incorrectly. This faulty workmanship can show up as a leaky roof, buckling walls, or bad wiring. Insurance policies do not cover the costs to repair and make right these problems. Additionally, your clients insurance policy will not cover losses or damage resulting from the shoddy workmanship. Even if a client would normally be covered for something under a policy, if it can be attributed to faulty workmanship, then your client may not be able to recover anything on a claim.
PRODUCT RECALL EXPENSES
Insurance that covers expenses associated with recalling a clients product from the market. Product recall insurance is typically purchased by manufacturers such as food and beverage, toy and electronics companies to cover costs such as customer notification, shipping costs and disposal costs.
A general liability coverage, combined in standard commercial general liability (CGL) policies with personal injury (PI) coverage, that insures the following offenses in connection with the insured’s advertising of its goods or services: libel, slander, invasion of privacy, copyright infringement, and mis-appropriation of advertising ideas.
