What is career consultant insurance?
As an expert in career planning, interviewing, and negotiating, you are in the know of current hiring practices and recruitment processes. You’re a pro at crafting resumes, planning career paths, building networks, and helping your clients launch or build a career that’s rewarding and lucrative. But what happens if you make a mistake?
What if there’s a misunderstanding and your client claims a breach of contract?
Are you covered if you face a lawsuit?
A career consultant insurance policy package is designed to protect your business against the unique risks you face, including situations where your negligence or your errors and omissions, are responsible for causing a third-party to suffer damages.
Do I need business insurance as a career consultant?
As a small business owner, you’ll want to protect yourself and your business from the unexpected. Litigation resulting from a covered claim, or a claim resulting from a cyberattack or a natural disaster could impact your business—and if you’re not properly protected, you run the risk of suffering a financial hit or in a worse case scenario, bankruptcy.
One way to protect your bottom line is to mitigate unexpected losses with an insurance policy that considers the unique risks you face as a career consultant.
What if a client injures themselves while visiting your office?
While you may take extra care to ensure your office space is tidy and your walkway is clear of debris when a client comes in for a meeting, all it takes is one computer cord left on the ground for someone to trip and fall.
A client could sue you:
What if a mistake or omission results in a lawsuit?
Your clients rely on your expertise, and sometimes mistakes happen. Even a small mistake when providing professional services, can end up being very costly. What if a client alleges that they suffered a financial loss because you failed to deliver services as promised?
Floods, fires, and other natural disasters:
What if you were forced to shut down your business for days, weeks or longer?
An unexpected business interruption could mean lost revenue and possibly the loss of new business. Even a minor disruption such as a power outage could mean you aren’t able to receive customer orders, but a major disruption, such as a flood, fire, or other natural disaster, could shut your business down permanently.
A hacker could steal your client data:
What if your computer system is hacked and a clients’ sensitive data is stolen?
As a career consulting professional, you likely have access to privileged client information. But if that information is compromised, you may be held liable. Small businesses are increasingly becoming victims of cyberattacks, so you need to be extra cautious.
How much does career consultant insurance cost?
Every business is different, and some businesses need more coverage than others. The cost of insuring your career consulting company depends on a variety of factors, including:
- Claims history
- Number of employees
