1. Platinum Liability:
As a teacher providing lessons at all premises whether owned or leased you must Insure for:
A. General Liability
Public Liability protects against claims of personal injury or property damage that a third party suffers (or claims to have suffered) as a result of your business activities. This means that if someone is injured or their property is damaged while you’re providing a service, they may take legal action against you to recover their losses. Public liability insurance is designed to help protect your business by ensuring that if this happens, you don’t have to pay any legal or court costs. It covers incidents that occur in your workplace, as well as incidents at other locations.
B. Professional Indemnity
Professional Indemnity insurance is for professionals who provide advice or services to their customers. It protects you and your business against legal costs and claims by third parties for damages arising from acts, omissions or breaches of professional duty in the course of your business. In real terms, this means that if you do something (or neglect to do something) in the course of your work, and a customer suffers injury or financial loss as a result, they may take legal action against you.
C. Management Liability (Optional)
Management Liability is an important part of any insurance program it is of particular importance to companies and businesses where the Corporations Act and other corporate laws and provisions may apply.
What is Covered
