Fidelity Guarantee Insurance

What is Public Liability Insurance?

Goldstar’s Fidelity Guarantee Insurance protects the insured against losses caused by disloyal staff/employees holding positions of trust.

Dishonesty of employees can be difficult to detect. That’s where Goldstar are here to help and provide protection in the case an employee or group of employees act dishonestly to defraud a company of monies and/or goods.

The Policy covers the loss sustained by the employer by reason of any act of forgery and/or fraud and/or dishonesty of monies and/or goods of the employer on the part of the employee Insured, committed on or after the date of commencement of the Policy during uninterrupted service with the employer.
