Failure to understand legal obligations leaves SMEs at risk of breaching the law

Employers’ liability insurance is a legal necessity for the vast majority of businesses with staff, however 10% of SMEs thought it wasn’t a legal requirement in any scenario.  Furthermore, 25% also wrongly believe that employers’ liability insurance is only legally required once a business has more than one employee.
And it isn’t only employers’ liability insurance that some businesses are unsure of. When we asked about all types of business insurance less than 30% of SMEs said they are very confident that they have the right cover, and 10% admitted to having no business insurance at all. That is potentially leaving more than 600,000 SMEs financially vulnerable should a claim arise.
