Barbers who provide hair care services, including cutting, trimming, shaping and tapering their clients’ hair, should get professional and general liability insurance. Problems can arise when working with clients who slip and fall at your salon or otherwise feel damaged by your services. Obtaining liability insurance is a great way to protect yourself while continuing to provide beneficial services to clients, which is especially true for barbers who work privately or own their own shop.
The heart of every good Accountants insurance package is the professional liability coverage (Errors & Omissions). Professional liability coverage protects you from mistakes made while working with clients. For the Accounting industry, the most common and costly errors are in the compilation and tax preparation service areas. This coverage specifically fills the coverage gap in general liability policies created by the ‘your work’ exclusion in those policies.
The Business Owners Policy includes many broad coverages that apply to every firm. Most notably, the general liability and property coverage are offered here. The property coverage includes either owned or leased/rented offices and all business personal property. The general liability portion of the BOP protects you from liability related to bodily injury and property damage where your at fault. The general liability coverage does include an exclusion for ‘your work’ which necessitates the need for the professional liability policy noted above.
These are the management liability coverages your firm needs to provide cover for claims stemming from:
Employment Practices Liability – Protects the firm from employee harassment complaints, discrimination, wage and hour complaints
Directors & Officers – Protects the firm and corporate leaders personally for failure to act in good faith, misuse of company funds, misrepresentations of company assets, breach of fiduciary liability , non-compliance, and more.
