Do you employ people, even contractors or volunteers?

Employers liability insurance covers the cost of compensating employees who are injured at or become ill through work.


Do I need employers liability insurance?

If you employ anyone, or control the way in which they work, it is a legal requirement that you have employer’s liability cover. If a member of your staff is injured at work, contracts an illness or suffers from a disability due to their employment, you could face a major claim for compensation and if you don’t have cover, you could be prosecuted and fined.

Who does it cover?

  • All your permanent employees
  • Your contract, casual and seasonal employees
  • Your labour-only subcontractors
  • Trainees or persons on work experience
  • Volunteers

Cover at a glance

  • Legal costs and compensation for illness and injury claims and defending health and safety prosecutions.
  • Cover against claims made by all members of staff, including workers employed through government schemes.
  • Cover against claims by staff on work experience.
  • Compensation per day if you need to attend court (rates vary).

Claim examples

An office worker badly injures their knee when they trip over a loose carpet tile. A builder is electrocuted by a piece of faulty mixer provided by their employer.

  - The labourer suffers from RSI from using power tools.

 - The factory worker suffer from deafness after working in a noisy plant room.

With each case a claim was made against the employer or former employer. The court ordered the employer to pay compensation for injury, costs and other damages.
