Our everyday lives have changed dramatically over the last several weeks as we work together to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We know these efforts are necessary, but they also have come at a cost.

Businesses have a number of responsibilities, including taking steps to protect their workers and customers while fulfilling their legal obligations. Employers are in a difficult position because the workplace has the potential to be a significant source of transmission. Learn more about employment regulatory/legal issues, business continuity, and keeping your workplace safe.

Below is information and resources assembled to help businesses navigate through the COVID-19 disruption.

We are in unprecedented and historic times. This worldwide pandemic is requiring all of us to change our normal, everyday, behaviors to help reduce and slow down the potential spread of COVID-19.

Heffernan Insurance Brokers’ priority is the health and safety of our employees, clients and partners. While our staff continues to work remotely, we remain committed to providing exceptional service to our customers and will make every effort to do so. Our service team members are operational and you will be able to reach them in the same manner you always have, whether by phone, email, or video conferencing.

We want you to know we are here for you as your partner, advocate, and advisor and we will strive to tackle the new world challenges that we currently face to the best of our ability. The passion and dedication of our employees and clients will carry us a long way in the wake of adversity as we do all that we can to navigate through uncertain times.

Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by the pandemic and we are grateful to those on the front lines caring for others – doctors, nurses, first responders, police, fire, and all essential workers.

We will continue to update you on the latest insurance information related to the pandemic and you can view additional details here on our COVID-19 Resource Center. Thank you for your business and continued support as we navigate this together. I look forward to the day we can visit with you in person.
