Staff Insurance

Why Staffing Agencies Need General Liability Insurance

Staffing agencies face the unique task of sending employees to outside locations to work for other employers on a daily basis. This means they face greater, more diverse risks each and every day, and may receive claims from both their employees and their business clients at any moment. This is why having general liability coverage added to staffing agency insurance is a must if you happen to run a business of this type. There are several reasons why this addition is a necessity, such as:

  • Most companies that hire temporary staff won’t work with your business unless it has this type of coverage to offer.
  • General liability insurance protects you in the event that a business you’re working with seeks compensation from claims regarding one of your staff members causing damage to another employee, equipment or other goods at the company in question.
  • In the event that you have to deal with a legal dispute in the aftermath of hiring out one of your employees to another party, you can expect to receive a significant amount of help with hiring a lawyer and dealing with the legal fees throughout the process.

Each of these are important reasons why you need general liability coverage added to your staffing agency insurance in the coming months. Speak to a professional about your needs as an owner can help you find other great coverage options as well.
