Stand-alone crime policy vs. employee dishonest coverage on a business owners policy?
Did you know that your “employee dishonesty” coverage on your business owners policy may not only have a very low limit, but may also have a conviction clause? That means that if the employee is not convicted in court, there could be no coverage. Does your current policy have a “manifest intent” clause?
We can help find policies that have neither of these clauses. Our small business team can help with this type of insurance for hundreds of industries, including retail operations, offices, law firms, accounting firms, non-profits, and more. Do you have a retirement plan such as a 401k.
