What is Recruitment Agency Insurance?

Recruitment agency insurance consists of a single comprehensive policy which can cater for all the risks involved in running a recruitment firm or consultancy.

Unlike some other providers, our recruitment insurance scheme provides Vicarious Liability as standard, providing protection where your agency is responsible for negligence of temporary, or agency, staff.

How much does Recruitment Agency Insurance cost?

Premiums are based on your individual business activities, but key rating factors include:

  • Annual fee income
  • Limit of Indemnity required (from £100k to £10m+ available)
  • Size of largest contract and salary placement
  • Type of placements (permanent, temporary or agency staff)
  • Whether your clients are responsible for Direction, Supervision and Control of placed staff

How much Recruitment Consultants Professional Indemnity Insurance do i need?

You know your agency better than anyone, take some time thinking about the largest contracts and placements you undertake and the potential losses which could be incurred.

Limits of indemnity can also be influenced by current, or previous, contractual requirements.

Recruitment Agency Covers

Professional Indemnity

Covering full civil liability and negligence claims against you, or your firm. This will include allegations as to poor performance of placed personnel, misrepresentation and/or the suitability of candidates.

Cover limits are available from £100k to £10m+. As well as professional negligence, cover includes breach of confidentiality and privacy, Intellectual property infringement, defamation, breach of contract and/or employee dishonesty.

Vicarious Liability

An extension of your professional indemnity insurance, providing protection where you are vicariously liable for the actions of the staff you place. Typically, this will be in respect of temporary staff where they may be acting under the supervision or control of your recruiting firm.

Public Liability

Protection against your legal liability for injury, or damage to property, following the actions of you, a member of staff, or a temporary worker, which you have placed.

Employers Liability

Covering your legal liability against injury or illness to a member of staff, or temporary worker, for whom you are responsible, in connection with your business.

Drivers’ Negligence

If your business places professional drivers you may be held responsible for the actions of an agency driver. Drivers negligence provides cover for accidental damage to a client’s vehicle caused by your placed driver.

Office Insurance

Business contents and equipment including computers, laptops and tablets at, or away from, the office. Cover can be extended to include business interruption for loss of profits following a claim.

Directors and Officers (Management Liability)

Covering your legal liability against injury or illness to a member of staff, or temporary worker, for whom you are responsible, in connection with your business.

Cyber Insurance Liability

As a professional recruitment firm you handle data, including sensitive data, on a daily basis. Should this data fall into the wrong hands (data breach) through staff error or a hacker attack, you could be subject to substantial third party claims for financial loss and/or first party claims for loss of income and IT system restoration.
