Foreign voluntary workers’ compensation

Managing a global workers' compensation exposure is one of the most challenging risks to manage. It's heavily regulated, varies by region and country, cumbersome to administrate and can greatly impact your company's operations, productivity and profitability. Following work related injuries, help get your foreign-assigned employees back on the job quickly and safely with the Zurich solution.

Our foreign voluntary workers’ compensation insurance includes coverage for:

  • Employers’ liability (primary except when country is excluded or when local compulsory insurance/other insurance applies)
  • Relocation and repatriation expenses paid or reimbursed
  • Medical expenses for endemic diseases

Excess auto

Zurich’s international excess automobile policy provides excess liability coverage for foreign-based hired, owned or non-owned vehicles that are procured by travelling employees or for company vehicles located abroad. The coverage is excess over any statutory local admitted coverage, and is used to supplement what is required locally in-country, with the standard limits clients are accustomed to on their domestic cover.
