When insuring a food operation or restaurant, it’s important that you have some core coverages in your restaurant insurance policy package.
Restaurant Liability Insurance
Restaurant Liability insurance is the foundation of a solid restaurant insurance package. It protects you from a wide range of accidents like slips, falls, and people getting sick from your food, which are all extremely increased exposures in the restaurant and food business.
Suppose someone just mopped the floor of your establishment and and older gentleman comes along before they’re able to put out a warning cone, slips, and breaks his hip. You’d be looking at a pretty substantial claim based on that type of injury and rehabilitation. Having the proper liability limits is extremely important when purchasing restaurant insurance.
We can go over your options to ensure there are no hidden gaps or exclusions in your policy.
Workers Compensation Insurance
Work Comp insurance isn’t just nice to have, in most states it’s the law.
In fact, those restaurants that do not carry workers’ compensation coverage are subject to Section 3700.5 of the California Labor Code that makes it a misdemeanor punishable by either a fine of not less than $10,000 or imprisonment in the county jail for up to one year, or both. Additionally, the state issues penalties of up to $100,000 against illegally uninsured employers.
We’ll sit down with you and make sure that you have the best coverage in place should an employee get injured on the job.
EPLI (Employers Practices Liability Insurance)
As a restaurant owner, you are perhaps at more risk than any other profession when it comes to EPLI exposures. The constant revolving door of hiring and firing is a never ending cycle for many restaurant owners.
