What is business insurance, exactly?
Business insurance (or office insurance / workplace insurance) allows agency owners to know that their business is protected if they ever suffer a covered loss. Owners of casting and talent agencies should be aware that when they rent office space to conduct business, they open themselves up to a variety of risks.
The cost to transfer that risk to insurance is low compared to the expense of an actual office: theft, fire, client slip & fall.
Let's look at some examples of casting and talent agency issues:
Talent agency computer theft
In 2018, thieves broke into a well-known actor's talent agency and stole three Apple computers.
Under Front Row's workplace insurance policy, all office equipment would have full replacement cost coverage – up to the policy limit – for theft, damage, fire.
Crime coverage can be added onto any office insurance policy. This coverage extends to crime losses that are not insured under the basic office policy. Briefly described, commercial crime insurance covers: money, securities and other property against a variety of criminal acts, such as employee theft, robbery, forgery, and computer fraud.
Casting/talent agency fire
An example of an office insurance claim that could happen at a casting or talent agency would be if a fire broke out in the agency's building, causing damage to the office space and equipment.
Front Row’s workplace insurance policy includes Tenants Legal Liability (TLL), which covers you (the insured) for legal liability in cases where the tenant causes damage to the rented property. If you rent a portion of an office in a building and you have a fire, then your TLL will cover the damages to the area you occupy.
Casting/talent agency actor injury
If an actor visiting your casting agency trips and falls over an electrical cord on the floor, for example, and injures themselves, they may sue your agency for compensation.
Front Row’s workplace insurance policy includes Commercial General Liability, which is coverage designed to protect against all sums that the insured shall become legally obligated to pay for bodily injury, property damage or personal injury to third parties arising out of your business operations. It includes the cost of a lawyer to defend you.
