This year, Take Your Kids to Work Day falls on April 24th. As an employer or business owners, you will need to know about the liability, compliance and insurance issues in advance. Using this opportunity to share your workplace with your child can add new dimension to your relationship and offer your child the chance to begin thinking about their own work future. No matter what your role is in your company, it might be worthwhile to know how this special day began and how it has evolved.
From ErieSense.com: “It’s also a good idea to leave younger kids at home or at school. Though it depends on your child’s maturity level, age 12 is usually a good age to first bring a child into the workplace… make sure to check in with your child’s school well ahead of time regarding your plans.”
Business/Commercial Insurance Tip
Children who visit on Take Your Kids to Work Day are viewed as any other guest in your workplace, and any issue or accident would typically be covered under a business owner’s general liability insurance coverage. In most cases, there would likely not be the need for any further additional coverages. However, you will want to consult with your insurance agent well in advance to confirm that the proper coverage is in place for your business.
