Business Interruption Insurance protects against financial damages, such as loss of sales, resulting directly from business interruption. It is worth calling the insurance company to see whether you can claim if you have business interruption insurance and the business cannot run due to the coronavirus's effect.
Check your regulation terms to see whether 'notifiable diseases' are included as part of the business interruption policy, along with a provision that the business must be closed by a competent authority to be included in the policy.
Avoid Getting Sued
Employer's Liability insurance covers employers if they are sued over a work-related illness or accident by an employee or ex-employee. Although ensuring that you have sufficient Employer Liability Insurance in place is vital, it is also the employee's responsibility to ensure that their home environment is safe.
Negligence charges could be posed if the employer were to give an employee heavy tasks without the right health and safety equipment in their home setting. It is necessary to follow complete health and safety protocols and decide if the job's completion is needed.
Online Dangers and Threats
There is an increased cybersecurity and data risk, with the majority of employees now working from home. Scams are spread through emails and might use your information for fraudulent acts. This is likely to continue; that is why the company needs to review your policies and fill in whatever you need for security.
If you haven't invested in Cyber Security Insurance yet, now might be a good time to determine its importance. It is vital to check all aspects of the policy before you buy it, with insurance companies continuously updating their plans to coincide with the uncertainty caused by COVID-19.
With business insurance with the right coverage, you don't have to worry about losing your business to substantial financial losses.
