Holiday Staffing and Restaurant Insurance Coverage

October 24, 2022

The holiday season is upon us. For the restaurant industry, Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Christmas, and New Year’s are exciting times, but the holidays can also be highly stressful for a restaurant owner or manager. Higher bookings bring increased profits, but they can also bring increased headaches—staffing being at the top of the list.


If you are looking to hire temporary staff to get you through the peak times, be sure that you have the right insurance, for them and for yourself. One approach is to go through a staffing agency—they will take care of all the insurance and employment regulations for you. If you choose to hire independently, make sure you know what you need for insurance, worker’s compensation, employment requirements (especially if the staff is underage), and any other benefits—the regulations covering temporary or seasonal staff are not the same as those applied to full-time employees. Be organized—hiring in an unplanned, last-minute rush can lead to cutting corners, which can be risky.


Take the time to get and read references, check documents, talk to one of our insurance agents in Park Ridge, NJ, your insurance company…a few minutes now may save you time and money in the future. When new staff members come into your restaurant be sure to give them adequate training, ensuring that they know and understand your procedures—especially when it comes to safety and security. This will save them and you from misunderstandings and potentially costly mistakes.


The holiday season can be a hugely profitable time for the restaurant industry…with some forward planning, the right restaurant insurance, and due diligence it can also be stress free and even fun!
