Retail Insurance Insight | You Owe A ‘Duty of Care’ To The Public
Retailers are an integral part of our economy. According to Industry Canada, “in 2011, the sector generated $457.4 billion in retail sales and represented approximately 12 percent of the Canadian workforce (Statistics Canada, 2012c).”1
As a Canadian retailer, you are the centre of a complex supply chain. From your building lease to your hiring practices to product recalls, your operations are surrounded by risk.
Did You Know?
In all provinces except Quebec, common law establishes that business owners owe a duty of care to the public. Unfortunately, accidents happen and injured people or parties may allege that:
- A duty of care was owed
- That duty of care was breached
- Damages and/or injuries were incurred
Whether you’ve transitioned from bricks to clicks, are introducing new products and services or looking to launch your first retail outlet, there is a multitude of decisions you need to make.
This is where ALIGNED Insurance advocates can help.
