We recently helped the MD of a recruitment company who had two main concerns. The MD wanted to know how to cover himself if one of his placements damage a client’s IT infrastructure. Our client also wanted to know what to do if a recruit had ‘lied’ about his abilities on his CV, the client’s company could suffer damage and take action against the recruitment company.
Our client was initially unsure if this could be covered by insurance. We found that certain types of incident were not covered and he will now consider his recruiting processes in depth. We adjusted his terms and conditions.
Recruitment is an area of business where a company could refuse to pay their bill if they feel like a recruit was not what they wanted or were looking for. As insurance brokers, we make it our duty to research the circumstances carefully, to ensure that our clients are protected.
