What You Should Know About Statutory Liability Insurance
By definition, statutory liability references illegal decisions that go against laws that cannot be open to interpretation.
Put simply, there are situations where business owners will make decisions that are illegal without knowing what they have done.
This tends to be related to making poor decisions related to environmental laws, health and safety laws, and laws that reference employment statutes.
Although an attorney would be able to accurately interpret what the law means, the average person may not.
It is for this reason that Statutory Liability Insurance is made available for those operating a business in Australia and New Zealand.
This type of coverage can protect those that have breached statutes related to:
- The Fair Trading Act
- The Human Rights Act
- Resource Management Act
- The Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act
- Health and Safety
This type of coverage will not have to cover statutes that have been excluded. This will include statutes that relate to:
- The Transport Act 1962
- The Aviation Crimes Act 1972
- The Arms Act 1983
- The Crimes Act 1961
The Benefits of This Type of Insurance
Today we live in very a litigious society, one that can lead to very expensive lawsuits however, these will be covered by a statutory liability policy.
That’s why working with a professional insurance agency that offers Statutory Liability Insurance is critical.
For example, there may be situations where you have inadvertently breached certain laws and acts, as well as different types of legislation.
There might be a situation where you may have made a decision that goes directly against the Environmental Protection Authority legislation, or employment practices laws.
Or, you might also unconsciously violate workplace health and safety acts, as well as spam and privacy laws.
Therefore, the benefit of having this type of insurance in place is that it will cover you if you happen to make these breach any of these laws.
As long as it can be proven that you did not willingly break any of these laws and acts, there are certain penalties you may be able to avoid.
What Type of Coverage Does This Policy Provide?
Statutory Liability Insurance is a great example of a business insurance policy that is seriously important, yet often overlooked by many business owners.
As mentioned above, business owners have certain obligations when it comes to workplace safety and health.
There are a variety of confusing laws on the subject and they are frequently updated.
Business owners therefore face the risk that may not be up to date with a certain law, thus leading to an accidental breach when an employee is hurt on the job.
The purpose of Statutory Liability Insurance is to protect the business owner if the business unintentionally violates one of the laws relating to workplace safety or health.
It can cover the costs required for the investigation, protect against liability claims, and cover the fines that the business accrues due to the violation.
This seems like an obscure form of insurance for many new business owners and is therefore often overlooked entirely.
After all, it seems like the real solution is to stay up-to-date with all health and safety regulations. However, this is not as easy as it sounds.
It isn’t until business owners make that one simple mistake that they realise just how important this type of policy is.
