Employers Liability Insurance

Employer liability insurance

Why do you need employers liability insurance?

If you employ staff, you're legally required to have employers liability cover in place.1 As an employer, you're responsible for ensuring your staff are safe and well; most importantly, that they don't get sick or injured because of the work they do for you. Despite your best efforts, if one of your employees suffers an injury or becomes ill and believes it's your fault, they may try to claim compensation from you.

  • Workplace injuries
    Between 2019 and 2020, 0.7 million workers sustained a non-fatal injury,2 and 142 were killed between 2020 and 2021 due to a workplace accident.
  • Employee claims
    Suppose an employee or volunteer – past or present – makes a claim against you. In that case, insurance will protect you against legal costs defending a claim. It will also cover any compensation you may be required to pay.
  • Health and safety inspections
    If you are not properly insured, fail to display the certificate or are unable to provide a certificate of insurance during health and safety inspections, you may be fined.3
