Do you currently own your own business or know someone who is starting a new business? If so, there are several things to consider regarding business insurance in order to protect yourself and your enterprise, including – workers comp, commercial general liability and employment practice liability insurance. Employee benefits are also a big part of any business in order to attract and retain good employees.
Typical BOPs Include:
- Property Insurance – Provides coverage for the structure and contents within the structure.
- Business Interruption Insurance – Provides coverage for loss of income in the event that your business is unable to operate due to one of the covered perils such as a fire.
- Liability Protection Insurance – This will protect your company from any legal implications.
- It DOES NOT include: Professional Liability Insurance, Auto Insurance, Workers’ Compensation, Health Insurance, or Disability Insurance. These coverage options require a separate unique insurance policy.
There are two major liability coverages gaining traction in the last 5 to 10 years for business owners; Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) and Cyber (data security and privacy) Liability Insurance (CLI). These are important coverages every business owner and/or people who work for companies who oversee company insurances should be aware of and familiar with.
