What is Employers' Liability Insurance?

asset protection insurance

We are a business insurance broker offering Employers’ Liability Insurance to business owners in all sectors. Find out what you'll be covered for when taking out an Employers’ Liability Insurance policy.

Employers’ Liability Insurance protects you from the cost of compensation claims that arise from illnesses and injuries that your employees may sustain as a result of working for you. This covers accidents in the workplace, but can extend to injuries such as RSI that could occur from not having the correct equipment in the workplace, such as chairs or computer keyboards.

Employers’ Liability Insurance is a legal requirement of a business that employs any number of people. You could be fined £2,500 a day for not having the correct level of cover. You may also be fined £1,000 if you do not display your Employers’ Liability certificate to inspectors when they ask.

According to the government, you need Employers’ Liability insurance as soon as you employ anyone. Your policy must come from an authorised insurer, but you may not need EL insurance if you only employ family members, or people based abroad.

How does it work?

Employers’ Liability Insurance provides long term financial security against unexpected claims, as well as peace of mind that you need whilst running a business.

Employers’ Liability policies can protect you against:

  • Injuries sustained at work

  • Illnesses caused by working environments

  • Legal costs

  • Compensation payouts

Why is it important?

The employees are the most important part of any organisation. Protecting them from potential risks in the workplace is essential practice, and it’s also important to protect your company from potential compensation claims.

Good safety practices are the first defence when it comes to claims that could be made against you by employees. This can reduce accidents and injuries, so knowing the necessary regulations for your industry is vital.
