An employment recruiter solicits individuals to fill a particular job. Some recruiters work for a recruitment agency and help fill positions for multiple businesses at once. There are many industries that typically rely on recruiters for their hiring needs. They can range from legal, pharmaceutical and sales to information technology and communications. A recruiter also might work in a human resources department, and may have other job responsibilities besides recruiting. Some very large companies might have recruiters in-house (sometimes called internal recruiters) who source candidates from their own company. No matter the context, recruiters are at risk. Let’s face it, no matter how hard a recruiter tries; they don’t always hire the right person. Honest mistakes happen in every business.
Recruiting is not a simple task. There is the pressure of being responsible for meeting hiring goals, filling open positions quickly, finding a pool of talented and qualified candidates and generally being responsible for the full life-cycle of the recruiting process. Hard working recruiters also find themselves screening candidates, coordinating interviews, facilitating offers and this is all while ensuring candidates have a pleasant experience. A complex job like this can leave recruiters vulnerable to costly legal action even if they are putting forward their best efforts. Errors and Omissions coverage can protect recruiters against such claims and lawsuits, whether real or frivolous.
Even top notch recruiters with the highest standards can inadvertently mishandle the hiring process. An Errors & Omissions policy may protect you when you need it most.
