As more U.S.-based NGOs have operations in countries around the world, it is becoming increasingly important that their workers' compensation policies be properly structured to address the significant exposures created by their employees conducting business outside the U.S.
This is true whether they are on permanent assignment, a short-term contract or a brief work-related trip. While there is some coverage available through endorsements to domestic workers' compensation policies, most do not pay for work-related injuries that occur overseas. Employers must be certain that their coverage is evolving right alongside their NGO operations and that their employees are being adequately covered -- regardless of where they are working.
Fortunately, a solution exists. Safe Passage International offers U.S.-domiciled NGOs the opportunity to purchase Foreign Voluntary Workers' Compensation to fill in the gaps left open by standard domestic workers' compensation insurance.
There are several significant benefits afforded under the Foreign Voluntary Workers' Compensation coverage offered by Safe Passage International that are not generally available via endorsement to a standard domestic workers' compensation policy. These include:
- Coverage for Third Country Nationals
- Employers' Liability for Local Nationals
- Repatriation Expense
- Coverage for Endemic Disease
- Extensive Worldwide Claims Network
