AHRI ProCover Professional Indemnity Insurance
We've got you covered
There are risks associated with being an HR professional. Recent legislative changes have opened up the options leading to the personal liability of individual HR practitioners found to have breached the law.
In response to this, the Australian Human Resources Institute launched AHRI ProCover, a professional indemnity master policy for professional members.
AHRI has partnered with Austbrokers Countrywide to bring members a professional indemnity insurance policy that will keep you covered when you need it. AHRI ProCover protects members from risks as an employee where your employer may not protect you, or you may be held personally liable.
In most cases, as an AHRI professional member, there's nothing you have to do - you're automatically covered. Some exclusions apply - please read below for further information.
If you're not an AHRI professional member but would like to enjoy the peace of mind that AHRI ProCover brings, click here to become a member.
