How Business Owners Can Use Commercial Insurance To Cover Remote Employees

Commercial insurance protects your Beaverton OR business so that you can continue to focus on achieving long-term success. Commercial insurance protects your equipment and inventory against possible damage and theft. You are also covered if one of your customers gets injured on your property or if someone alleges that your products made them sick.

Commercial insurance helps you navigate the risks associated with operating your business. In this current age of technology, many companies are allowing their employees to work remotely. If this strategy is a current part of your operations, there are still some liability risks worth considering.

Make sure that your employees are working in a safe environment. Have your employees take pictures of their home office, equipment, and furnishings so that you’ll have documentation. Look for potential hazards such as a lack of smoke detectors in the area. If you are assigning your employees equipment such as tablets and desktops, those items should be fully protected. Remember that computer hackers are constantly creating new ways to cause trouble. There should be a secure connection between your employee’s home office and the business network. Develop a strong telecommuting policy, including weekly video chats.
