The insurance you need depends on your business and the risks you face, but these are popular covers for complaints handlers:
Professional indemnity insurance is the cover that can help you if you’re sued by a client for negligence or a mistake you’ve made in your work. For example if your client misses out on a large compensation payment because you’ve failed to submit the relevant paperwork on time, they may sue you. Your professional indemnity insurance could cover the legal fees and compensation costs. The companies you work with may ask for proof of professional indemnity insurance.
Public liability insurance is also worth considering, as it can cover compensation payments and legal fees if a client or another third party makes an injury or damage claim against you. This could come in useful if you work at third party premises.
Employers’ liability insurance is a legal requirement for most businesses that have staff, so it’s an important consideration if you run a complaints handling business that employs people. It can cover compensation claims made by staff because they’ve suffered illness or injury as a result of their work.
Other options include office equipment cover if you want to insure things that are crucial to your business like your computer, and portable equipment insurance if you work at third party premises with your laptop, for example.
