What cover does employers' liability insurance provide?
You're responsible for the health and safety of your employees. However, accidents can happen. Suppose you're found liable for illness or injury sustained by an employee as a result of the work they've done for you. In that case, you'll need EL cover in place to protect against compensation and legal fees, as well as crisis and public relations (PR) costs.
An EL policy covers all injuries; whether they happen suddenly, like a slip or trip, or develop over time due to the nature of a person’s work. A claim can be made while your employee works for you, or even after they leave your business. This might occur if symptoms only become apparent after a number of months.
If an employee claim ends up going to court, the compensation amount can reflect a number of different costs, such as medical costs, loss of income and legal costs.
