Membership of the HSU SA/NT entitles you to a huge range of member benefits; from professional indemnity insurance and high-quality continuing professional development to free legal advice and exclusive discounts on a range of goods and services.

Professional Indemnity Insurance

HSU provides automatic professional indemnity insurance as part of your membership (if you are in a profession where it is a required). Professional indemnity insurance is designed to protect you from bearing the full legal costs of a law suit or coronial inquiry if there is an accident or you make a mistake at work. It means you won’t lose your house and your savings defending litigation. An important feature of this policy is that it covers you no matter who you work for and where you work, making it beneficial for all workers, including casuals.

Through CGU, members of HSU are entitled to $20M Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance coverage.
