As an employer, it is a legal requirement to carry employers' liability insurance.

Employers' liability cover explained
Employers' liability insurance, also known as EL insurance, secures your business against the cost of a legal claim issued by current or ex members of the workforce if they are injured or suffer sickness when working for you. Any claims for compensation in the workplace can be costly but with the right levels of cover in place, you needn't worry if an accident happens. We can get to know the integral structure of your business and the finer details about what your employees do, then find suitable cover of £10 million from our panel of leading UK insurers.
The Employers Liability Act
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 we can help you obtain 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.

Do you need public liability insurance?
If you require employers' liability insurance, it is likely you may also need public liability insurance cover if your business interacts with clients or members of the public. This product can protect your business financially against property damage and personal injury claims in the event an accident happens and your business was deemed negligent.
