Coverage for Staffing Agencies

Staffing agencies provide a valuable service to a variety of employers by screening qualified applicants and sending potential candidates for temporary or permanent positions. Depending on the nature of the work and the type of contract signed, these employees may be the legal responsibility of the staffing agency. In addition to being liable for employees, these agencies may also need staffing insurance for other types of scenarios. Some of these include:

Not Meeting Employer Expectations: When an agency fails to comply with common industry standards when working with employers

Missing Deadlines: When a business and staffing agency agree on a deadline for finding a qualified candidate and that the agency cannot find one in time

Unqualified Workers: If a staffing agency sends a worker who clearly does not have the qualifications to do the job specified by the employer

Injuries If a candidate is caused bodily harm while on the agency’s property or working elsewhere as an employee of the agency.

With all the risks involved in operating a staffing agency, it is important to consider having an adequate staffing insurance plan that covers these types of incidents. Choosing an agency that specializes in this field can be an effective way to ensure that all these types of exposures are identified and protected against.
