Why do HR consultants need insurance?

HR consultants are in demand as companies focus on improving employee relations and company culture. However, an unresolved conflict or failure to comply with employment regulations could lead to a lawsuit. Small business insurance tailored for human resources consultants protects against legal costs and other financial losses.

What types of insurance do HR consultants need?

These insurance policies cover the most common risks of HR consulting.

BEST FOR
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Damaged customer property
  • Libel, slander, and copyright lawsuits
Professional liability insurance icon

Professional liability insurance

This insurance covers legal expenses if an HR consultant is sued for a mistake or oversight, such as failure to comply with employment regulations. It’s also called errors and omissions insurance (E&O).

BEST FOR
  • Consulting errors and oversights
  • Advice that caused financial loss
  • Professional negligence

  • Employee injury lawsuits

  • Business interruption incidents

Fidelity bonds, also called employee dishonesty bonds, provide reimbursement if one of your employees steals from a client. They are often required by client contracts.
