BOP (Business Owners Package)
Business Owners Package policy, commonly
called a "BOP" contains many of the insurance coverages needed by most small businesses. While these policies
are not standard, there is great variation from insurance company to insurance company; there are certain
common elements. The basic BOP offers business property for both building and contents, and liability
insurance protection for the operation of your business. This liability protection will generally include both
the operation of your business, at its established location, and the liability from your products or completed
Some, but not all of the policies, will also offer business income and extra expense protection after an insured
loss. BOP policies do not contain all of the coverages needed by a small business. Notably they do not cover any
workers' compensation, professional liability, or business vehicle coverage.
If your business suffers a property loss it could cause the business to slow or close down while repairs are
made. This may mean a complete or partial revenue loss depending on the time frame and the damage. From the time
the loss occurs until your business is running again, insurance can replace your lost profits, and provide a source
of money to pay your necessary continuing expenses, like rent, payroll, taxes, etc.
Commercial Property protects your business against the loss or loss of use of company property. "Property" can
include a variety of types: lost income or business interruption, buildings, computers, money, and valuable
Most package policies provide a liability insurance limit of $1 million for any one loss and $2 million in any
one year. For many businesses, this limit is inadequate for real economic security. As a result, additional layers
of protection in million-dollar increments are readily available in today's insurance market for most

Employment Practices Liability (EPLI)

related claims include claims relating to:

Normally, it is difficult for businesses or
general contractors to work without general insurance. General liability insurance is intended to guard
operators and owners of companies from claims that may come from a broad spectrum of sources. These exposures
could be just about anything, including liability engendered by accidents from the operations of the insured
party, contractual liability, products manufactured by the insured party, etc.
The liability you select, whether it is one, two, or three million dollars, determines the cost of general
liability insurance. Also factored into the rates are the kind of work undertaken, gross receipts and total payroll
expenses. Similar to auto insurance, when it comes to general liability insurance, you will first have to make a
down payment and then follow it up with installments. Before buying general liability insurance, it is best to
compare the quotes available in the market.
It is the business owner's or general contractor’s job to make sure that the people working under him/her are
covered by an insurance policy. If for example, a person who is not a part of the project gets injured, the injured
person’s lawyer can target just about anyone involved in the project. The more individuals that are involved, the
greater the chances of a successful lawsuit.
