Frequently asked questions
An employer had to fire a staff member, who then turned around and sued him for unfair dismissal. Can this happen to me? What can I do to protect myself?
It can happen to you and it’s a worrying possibility. Unfair dismissal cases seem to be more common these days but there is an insurance cover that can help you. It’s called Management Liability and it can cover you against lawsuits like this as well as actions launched by regulators against your company and you personally.

I’d like to review my business insurance policies because I’m convinced I can save on my policy. What can I do?
Be very careful! Have you heard the old expression “penny wise, pound foolish?” By trying to reduce your premiums, you’re running the risk of joining the thousands of small Australian businesses that are actually underinsured. Ask your accountant or insurance advisor to conduct an audit of your needs. You might save some money…but you won’t risk being underinsured.

We were burgled the other night and they took my company's computers, a flat screen monitor, and even a printer. I can't find my business insurance policies or receipts for the gear. What should I do?
If it’s any comfort at all, you’re not the only business that has faced this problem. I know it’s too late for you, but to avoid it happening again;
- Make a photographic record of your equipment,
- Keep your receipts and insurance policies in a really safe place and
- Make sure you’re insured for the replacement value of the items. It will make such a difference next time you have to claim.
GIO Business burglary tips for your business.
There was a fire a few doors from our business and the business lost just about everything. I spoke to the owner and she said she wasn’t worried because she had business interruption cover. What’s that?
Business Interruption is a type of insurance that every small business should have – but only around 50% do. It covers the business if it can no longer trade normally because of an insured event like your neighbour’s fire. The cover provides money to meet the business’ normal overheads like rent, wages, leases and so on until it’s back in business again.
