From time to time, the media bursts with the latest infectious disease outbreak, from food poisoning to ebola.
It’s a timely reminder that in these situations, you should review your insurance cover as it affects your employees and workers compensation.
For example, if employees are sent to affected areas for work, your workers’ compensation policy should provide cover if that disease is contracted during the course of employment unless the employee’s actions are deemed to be ‘serious and wilful’ misconduct.
