Situations can occur in which NWO-I can be held liable for damage that employees cause to the property of third parties. For such cases, NWO-I has concluded a liability insurance. This insurance is applicable to all employees with whom NWO-I has concluded an employment contract. All persons who carry out activities on behalf of NWO-I fall under this liability insurance too. Independent professionals do not fall under the liability insurance. The maximum insured amount is € 4,537,802 per event.
Collective accident insurance
If an employee does not have an employment agreement or another agreement with NWO-I, then NWO-I considers him or her to be a guest. Should something happen to him or her for which NWO-I could be held liable, then NWO-I has concluded a collective accident insurance to cover this. Visitors who are at an NWO-I location for the purpose of an excursion also fall under this insurance. This insurance only applies if you have registered the guest and the visitors in advance with the P&O Department of NWO-I.
NWO-I also has an accident insurance for foreign guests, students, conscientious objectors and unpaid interns.
If the employee makes a business trip in the Netherlands or abroad, then there are also insurances in place to financially safeguard any damages caused by third parties. See also IR-13 Remuneration for damage to or theft of personal property.
NWO-I has concluded a continuous travel insurance for NWO-I employees. This contains cover for damage, theft, accidents and the like. See Project and personnel.
NWO-I has concluded an insurance against fire, burglary, storm and water damage.
NWO-I includes all goods purchased with NWO-I funds in this insurance. If NWO-I is the co-funder of equipment, then NWO-I is insured in proportion to the amount invested. The ratio of co-funding between the NWO-I contribution and the total value is the same as the ratio for which NWO-I is insured against fire, burglary, storm and water damage with respect to that equipment. Your administration should show that NWO-I has (co-)funded the equipment concerned.
Damage must be reported within 24 hours to the NWO-I Finance Department. You can only claim for theft if there are traces of burglary (breaking in and/or getting away).
