As a temporary staffing agency, you probably already know many of the risks in sending employees to various clients. Regardless of the industry, sending temporary workers into the hands of others, while still retaining responsibility, can cause a lot of stress. This is why a temporary staffing insurance policy can be useful.
Despite the different jobs in different locations, the agency remains liable. This can be difficult to deal with when the employees are off site, especially since the agency is still responsible for injuries and other workplace disturbances. Many business insurance policies are meant for companies that conduct business with their employees at their place of business, but the unique nature of staffing agencies changes insurance needs. Therefore, one of the first things to check in a policy is whether or not your employees are covered regardless of location. Commercial general liability insurance, employee theft and crime coverage, professional liability insurance and employment practices liability insurance can all be a great place to start in your search for coverage.
Temporary staffing agencies often work hard to supply clients with hard working employees, but mistakes happen. Whether you fail to order a background check or one of your employees damages a client’s property, temporary staffing insurance can help get your business operations back to normal.
