Public liability insurance isn't a legal requirement, but it can cover the costs of any compensation due and legal fees associated with claims. As you constantly have members of the public filtering in and out of your supermarket, pubic liability insurance is essential. This cover will protect you if a shopper has an accident or their property is damaged as a result of you or your employee's negligence. If you have employees, by law you need employers liability insurance. This protects you if an employee becomes injured or seriously ill as a result of working for you. Stock insurance should be a high priority. Without your stock, you wouldn't be able to run your business. This type of cover protects you if your stock is damaged or stolen and needs replacing.

Others will protect you and your supermarket in the event of a claim but are not compulsory. Not having the right insurance or inappropriate cover for your supermarket could be a false economy.
