Remote workers' insuranceRemote Workers’ Insurance covers accidents during the workday in remote work.
Additional cover for remote work
Remote workers insurance is voluntary and covers losses that occur during breaks and meals or while taking or picking up the kids from daycare.
Workers' compensation insurance contains restrictions on insurance cover
Under the Workers' Compensation Act, cover for accidents that occur in remote work is more limited than in losses at the actual place of work.
High-quality treatment and fast recovery
Pohjola Hospital and our other medical partners help us to ensure professional care and a high standard of treatment. In case of accident, your employees get fast access to treatment and rehabilitation.
Why should employers take out Remote Workers’ Insurance?
Although the statutory workers' compensation insurance is valid also in remote work, it does not cover all losses that can occur during a day of working remotely. In remote work, statutory insurance cover is more limited and covers only activities that are directly related to work. You can improve employees’ insurance cover in remote work with additional voluntary insurance.
Remote Workers’ Insurance is valid during remote work in situations that are not covered by workers' compensation insurance. These include, among others, short breaks and meals and travel that is directly related to remote working, such as taking and picking up kids from daycare.
For an even more comprehensive insurance cover for your employees than the one offered by Remote Workers’ Insurance, choose leisure-time accident insurance for your workers' compensation insurance policy.
