Employers' liability cover explained
Do you employ people that are not family members?
In 1968, the Employers (compulsory insurance) Liability Act was filed ensuring employers have a minimum level of protection in the event an employee makes a claim following injury, financial loss or damages sustained within your premises or resulting from working for you.
If you employ a person who is not directly related to you (family) then you are legally required to carry a certificate for EL insurance. This includes contractors, casual workers and temporary staff in addition to any full time permanent staff. This ensures you are covered if an employee becomes ill or is injured as a result of working for you.
"Excellent service. Very polite and helpful in every phone call. They always check that all paperwork has come and that it's right."
If you employ staff, it is a legal requirement to carry employers' liability insurance. If a member of staff is injured or falls ill and you are found to be negligent, the cost legal proceedings could damage your business if not insured, not to mention you can also receive a fine of up to £2500 per day that you do not carry a valid certificate for employers' liability.
