About Employers Liability Insurance

Employers Liability Insurance is the only insurance that is compulsory for any business that employs staff. This includes full and part time staff, temporary staff, self-employed contractors and even volunteers. Employers Liability Insurance helps you protect all of these workers from injury in the workplace, or any illness that occurs as a direct result of their work.

Your policy covers the cost of any compensation you may need to pay out, plus any legal fees that occur as a result of an employee making a claim. It also protects you against former employees making claims against you.

As this insurance is compulsory, you could be liable to large fines if you are not covered and you have employees – this could be up to £2,500 per day. These can also be backdated so you could be at risk for huge fees if you go for a substantial period of time without insurance.

The level of cover you choose is completely dependant on your business and the number of employees you have – you have to be covered for at least £5 million but many businesses require cover for much larger sums than that as they have large numbers of employees.
