Why bother with RES?

  • The vicarious liability section of our policy provides the insured with explicit cover if found legally liable for the actions of placed personnel. The liability sections also cover claims arising out of injury or damage involving placed personnel.
  • Most policies include a clause restricting coverage to the placement of temporary workers through 'standard' contracts, which deem placed personnel to be the employees of the end client, but increasingly this is not reflective of how recruitment works. We, however, don't differentiate between 'standard' and 'non- standard' contracts.
  • RES covers claims arising from unintentional breaches of the Agency Worker Regulation Act 2010 (AWR).*
