Meeting your Employer’s Liability around the world
International Employers’ Liability insurance protects your organisation against negligence claims should an employee suffer injury, accident, sickness or death as a result of their work. Bellwood Prestbury can ensure you have proper cover in place for any nationality of employee, working virtually anywhere in the world.
Employers’ Liability insurance is often a minimum requirement for doing business in many countries, but international assignments can be more complex. You may only need a relatively small Employers’ Liability cover for certain countries, but if an expatriate makes a claim in their own country, you may find that you do not have adequate cover.
Freelance or independent contractors may also need to be covered by your organisation’s Employers’ Liability policy. Many courts might argue that a security guard working on board ship in the Gulf of Aden, or a demining contractor in Cambodia is not available for work while on contract with you. Any accident, injury or sickness incurred whilst on contract with you might require you to compensate the contractor or his or her family.
