Workplace Violent Act Insurance (WVA)
Stand Alone Program
$71M Total Aggregate Limits
Workplace violence is an increasing risk to businesses. These type of events are happening more frequently and all businesses are vulnerable, whether it is a casual office setting or an establishment with late hours and frequent customers.
Injury is an obvious potential loss, but residual community concerns may impact revenue and future growth. Standard insurance policies may not provide the relief for a depleted revenue stream with related costs because there is no covered peril to trigger those policies.
