Employers Liability Insurance: Compulsory for Most UK Employers
Published: 09/02/10

In the UK, the Employers Liability Act of 1969 requires most employers to carry employers liability insurance. In fact, the only businesses that aren’t required to carry this compulsory insurance are ones that have no employees, are family-owned and operated, or those that are public or government entities. If your business has employees that aren’t related, you must have UK employers liability insurance and display the certificate where employees can see it, or you can be subject to fines.

This insurance will cover anything that happens to your employees while on your premises or doing something off premises that is part of their normal line of work. Those that work in travelling positions are covered when they are working or on company business, no matter what locations they are in. This insurance is meant to cover an employee’s medical costs, in the event they are injured or worse. This compulsory insurance is not something most businesses can afford to be without, in the event a serious accident happens.

In order to operate your business in the UK, you are legally required to have this insurance to cover your employees while they are working. Not only is it for your employees’ protection, but also it can protect your assets and your company from lawsuits that would result without it. Businesses that don’t carry this type of liability insurance are gambling against odds that are quite high. There are thousands of employees in the UK that have accidents at the workplace every year.

Accident prevention and safety training can help your business have a lower number of these types of incidents, but it can be impossible to protect against the possibility of accidents altogether. The best medicine might be prevention in many cases, however carrying proper Public liability insurance will give you added protection.
