Business Insurance

Statutory Liability

We live in a litigated world where higher standards of behaviour and compliance with laws and regulations are expected of businesses. The law applies if you are a home based, small, medium or large enterprise.

Breaches of statute and regulations can lead to court cases, fines and penalties. Many of these can be unintentional breaches of New Zealand health and safety at work Act.

However, any time a business is called upon to defend itself against an alleged breach, defence costs are incurred. These costs can range from investigating, preparing to defend and appearing in court. They can escalate to fines or penalties imposed by a court.

Our business insurance package includes optional statutory liability insurance. This important statutory liability product will cover liability arising from fines imposed. It also covers legal costs to defend your business under various Acts of Parliament. This includes proceedings before a Human Rights or Privacy Review Tribunal.
