Tailored insurance for HR consultants

As an HR consultant you’re a workplace expert and a professional people-person. Unfortunately, this position of responsibility and your close contact with clients brings certain risks.

A HR consultant insurance policy from Simply Business can include both professional indemnity insurance in case a client sues you for a mistake you’ve made in your work, and public liability insurance for injury or damage claims made against your business.

You can also add other covers to your policy, like employers’ liability insurance if you have any staff, and business buildings insurance if you want to protect your premises.

Cover from £6.79 a month, get insured in minutes. (10% of direct debit customers repay their annual policy in 10 monthly payments of £6.79 or less across all our trades insured. Based on data from 1 July - 31 December 2020, for comparison only. Cancellation charges may apply, please refer to our full terms & conditions.)

What insurance do HR consultants need?

These are some insurance types that tend to be useful for HR consultants, but each business is different so you should choose your insurance based on your needs.

Public liability insurance for HR consultants

Public liability insurance can protect you against injury or damage claims made by members of the public, including your clients. For example if you spilt a cup of tea over a client’s computer equipment while making a presentation, they could sue you for the damage, and your public liability insurance could cover legal fees and the compensation payment.

Professional indemnity insurance for HR consultants

Professional indemnity insurance is really important for any business that gives advice, as it can protect you against compensation claims made by a client for negligence or a mistake you’ve made in your work. For instance, if you gave a business incorrect advice about company policies and procedures and they faced an investigation as a result, your professional indemnity insurance could cover the compensation payment and legal fees.

Other business insurance for HR consultants

Employers’ liability insurance is usually a legal requirement if your HR consultancy employs any staff. You can also add other covers to your policy like business equipment insurance, legal protection insurance, business interruption insurance and personal accident insurance.

It is a very good and easy to use service. I've been a customer for several years and the renewal system is very straight forward. I've always found the quotes competitive too. I'd definitely recommend Simply Business.
