Why Business Consultants Need E&O Coverage

Are you working as a “consultant”? If so you need to know that as professionals providing expert advice, consultants are held to a high standard of care by their clients, and regardless of their area of expertise—management, benefits, environmental, marketing, media, technology—consultants need to have E&O insurance. Not only does this protect you as the consultant, but it also covers your organization/business and their reputation, more and more it is a mandatory requirement by a prospective client.

A Real Canadian Claims Example Of Why Business Consultants Need E&O Coverage

A recruiting consultant does not conduct a reference check on a prospective employee for a client. Subsequently, the employee misappropriates sums of money from the company. A reference check by the consultant would have revealed that the employee had a long history of fraud. The employer sues the consultant to recover the missing funds and the consultant is found to be negligent as they owed a duty to their client based on their scope of work and expertise and that duty was breached and resulted in a financial loss which was a direct result of the consultant’s negligence.
