Get peace of mind that you will be covered at work
Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) is a form of liability insurance that protects you at work. It is a necessary insurance for any professional working in the health sector, especially those who work with vulnerable people. PII will provide you with the legal protection and support you will need if there is an issue with your professional practice at work. This may include, medication errors, client deaths, if you are sued by a client and so on.
Some employers may offer PII, however it is important to recognise that this PII will always act in the employer’s interests before the employee. This means that employees can be used as a ‘scapegoat’ if it will protect the employer.
HACSU members are insured for up to $10 million in individual indemity.
HACSU's insurance provides members with the peace of mind that you will always be covered.
However, an important reminder that you will only be covered if you notify an incident as soon as you are aware of a potential issue.
It is extremely important that you notify the union as soon as possible to avoid rejection by the insurer.
Even if no claim needs to be made, it's important that we know, so in the event you do need to claim, you are covered.
