A majority of companies offer their employees benefits including health insurance and retirement plans. In the event an employer fails to add a new employee or update an existing employee benefit plan, an employee may be denied a medical claim submitted by their health insurance company. An employee benefits liability insurance policy provides coverage to employers for errors and or omissions in the administration of their employees benefit program.
Benefits Of An Employee Benefits Liability Policy
Scaling a company correctly is difficult, and can result in understaffing and mistakes or errors made due to overworked employees attempting to cover the increase in tasks and responsibilities. This logic applies to HR departments as well, when companies begin to hire in mass and the work for understaffed HR departments begins to rapidly increase.
To combat the risk of overlooking or failing to administer an employee benefits program, it is important to acquire an employee benefits liability policy.
Employee Benefits Liability Insurance Coverage
Coverage options vary depending on the benefits you company offers, but applies to a wide range of employee benefits such as:
- Health insurance
- Life insurance
- Disability insurance
- Retirement plans
