When an employee travels on behalf of the business be it abroad or within the UK it is the firm’s responsibility to insure employees under a group travel insurance. Below is an extract from a newsletter published by our sister company MPI Brokers:
'Firms sending staff on business trips – in the UK or abroad – hold a ‘duty of care’ under employment law. This means they must provide for, typically, medical expenses, repatriation and a 24-hour emergency medical assistance helpline as well as travel delays, loss of personal effects, public liability and so on'
The insurance will be issued in the name of the firm making it the insured and all staff (listed) hold an interest under the policy. Amendments to staff details can be by made by contacting us at ClearSkies.
