Things to consider when taking out an Employers Liability Policy:

How much cover should I take out?

How many employees you have, and what is their risk of injury at work? What if someone claimed for more than I am insured for?
By UK law, you are required to have a minimum of £5m worth of cover. However, we recommend that you take out as much as you can afford.

Where are my employees based?

If your employees work out of the country permanently, or just for a few days at a time, this should be declared when taking out a policy.
Some policies will cover your employees for working in the EU for a short period of time, but if it exceeds this period you should check the EL Insurance Laws for that country.

Who do I employ?

Employers Liability Insurance is essential for any business with employees, however there are a few exceptions to the rule.
If you only employ close family members or your only employee is a co-owner of the company, you may be exempt.

Who Needs Employers Liability Insurance?

Employers Liability Insurance is a legal requirement by UK law for a minimum value of £5 million. This is to protect employers against any claims that may arise from your staff as a result of carrying out work that you have instructed them to do. Employers Liability Insurance became a legal requirement in 1972 as a direct result of the 1969 Employers Liability Act.

Over the past decade there has been a rise in laws surrounding employers and more cases are going to the high courts with large settlements being paid out and many companies suffering from high losses due to their negligence of health and safety responsibilities. Liability claims can be ongoing and highly expensive with compensation and legal fees to take into account. However some of these costs can be recovered with Employers Liability Insurance.

There are some cases where EL Insurance is not necessary, for example if you only employ close relatives. However if an accident were to happen, would you be able to pay out compensation?
