What is employers' liability insurance

In the UK, employer’s liability insurance is a legal requirement for businesses that employ one or more people. Unless you’re a one-man operation, employers’ liability insurance is something that nearly every business owner needs. This insurance cover is essential in case compensation becomes payable to an employee if they’re injured or become ill as a result of the work that they do for you.

 Employer’s liability insurance not only covers compensation if an employee is injured or becomes ill as a result of their profession but also legal costs incurred while defending the claim. You can be fined up to £2,500 for every day you do not have employers’ liability insurance and your policy must have a cover level of at least £5 million. As per the current Government guidelines, you can be fined £1,000 if you do not display your Employers’ liability certificate or refuse to make it available to inspectors when it is sought for.
