Outside the U.S., nothing quite compares to our nation’s own workers compensation system for comprehensive coverage. Likewise, few countries can match America’s high standard for healthcare, and U.S. travelers often require medical evacuation for emergency treatment. Addressing these realities, companies purchase international employers responsibility coverage
to assure seamless protection for workers living or traveling in foreign lands.
Why is International Employers Responsibility Needed?
- Accidents and illnesses occur when employees travel overseas.
- Businesses need a way to protect against employee-filed lawsuits for accidents or diseases contracted outside the U.S.
- Business travelers often require timely assistance with medical, personal, travel or security matters while overseas.
- Employers doing government work beyond U.S. borders need Defense Base Act Coverage for military and non-military projects.
