Employer's Liability Insurance

Employer’s liability coverage is mandated by UK law for any business that employs a team of staff. This offers protection in the event of claims related to illnesses and injuries sustained by employees during working hours.

Who is Employer’s Liability Insurance for?

Employer’s Liability insurance is applicable for anyone as soon as they start employing staff or using labour-only sub-contractors. However, there are a few exceptions:

  • If your business is a limited company with only one employee owing 50% or more
  • If you’re the only employee or you only employ close family members.

When do I need Employer’s Liability Cover?

You will require this cover from the day your business starts employing staff. To qualify as “staff” a person does not have to be paid or under contract. It includes any person to whom you have a legal duty of care.

How much Employer’s Liability do I need?

Usually, you will need a minimum of £5 million of employers’ liability insurance to follow UK law.

Can a claim be made if I become bankrupt?

Employees injured due to your negligence can seek compensation even if your business goes into liquidation or receivership.
