For most recruitment businesses, professional indemnity insurance is at the top of the list. It’s an insurance designed for companies that offer advice to clients, handle client data, or deal with intellectual property. It can cover compensation costs if a client sues you for making a mistake in your work. For example if you accidentally sent a client’s sensitive employee information to a third party, your client could sue you for breaching confidentiality, and your professional indemnity insurance could cover the legal fees and compensation costs.
You can buy professional indemnity insurance as a stand-alone cover or as part of a combined policy with other covers. At Simply Business we offer between £50,000 and £5 million in professional indemnity cover.
Public liability insurance is likely to be important too, as it can cover you for injury or damage claims made by a member of the public. For example if you spilt coffee over a candidate’s laptop while they were meeting you in your office, they could demand money for the repair or replacement of their computer.
You could consider other covers too, including employers’ liability insurance if you’ve got any staff and business equipment insurance if you want to protect any kit that’s essential for running your business.
