What are some claims examples for cleaners?
Injuring a member of the public during cleaning jobs:
You’re out on a cleaning job at a large shopping mall. One of your cleaners forgets to put up a warning cone. An elderly member of the public walks onto the wet surface. She slips and falls. The elderly woman suffers a serious fracture in her arm and hip bone. The family of the injured woman takes legal action against you. They sue you for $250,000, demanding compensation for the injured woman’s extensive medical costs, physiotherapy costs, and damages for trauma caused.
If you have Public Liability Insurance, the insurer would cover you against this lawsuit. Your Public Liability policy would pay for your lawyer’s fees to defend your company, and pay the legal damages.

Cleaner gets Covid-19 while working:
3 of your cleaners get infected with Covid-19 while cleaning various places. All 3 cleaners end up in the hospital, for 4 weeks each. Since this is a work-related illness, under WICA regulations, you must compensate your cleaners for their medical bills and lost wages while on MC. The government is currently paying for the medical bills of Covid patients, so you won’t need to pay for that. However, you must still pay your cleaners their salary while they’re ill.
We’ll assume each cleaner earns $1,800/month. Your total compensation is there $4,800 for the 4 weeks that they’re in the hospital. If you have WICA Insurance, your insurer will pay these costs for you.
