Employers Liability (EL) Insurance

Designed to protect employers  against claims made by employees who have suffered work-related injuries or illnesses.

Employers’ Liability Insurance (EL) is a type of insurance coverage designed to protect employers against claims made by employees who have suffered work-related injuries or illnesses. It is a legal requirement for most employers in the UK who have one or more employees, with only a few exceptions.

The main purpose of Employers’ Liability Insurance is to provide financial protection for employers in case an employee is injured or falls ill while performing their job duties, and they hold the employer responsible for the incident. Such claims can result in significant financial liabilities for the employer, including legal costs and compensation payouts, which can be financially damaging to the business if not adequately insured.

Key features of Employers’ Liability Insurance include;

  • Legal Compliance: Employers’ Liability Insurance is a legal requirement for most businesses in the UK with employees. It ensures that you meet your legal obligations, preventing potential fines and penalties.

  • Financial Protection: EL offers vital financial protection to your business by covering the costs of legal defense and compensation if an employee makes a claim due to work-related injury or illness.

  • Employee Coverage: This insurance extends beyond permanent employees to include temporary staff, part-time workers, contractors, and in some cases, volunteers. It provides comprehensive coverage for your entire workforce.

  • Occupational Injuries & Illnesses: EL safeguards your business against claims arising from workplace accidents, injuries, and occupational illnesses, including long-term health issues that may surface later.

  • Peace of Mind: With Employers’ Liability Insurance, you can run your business with confidence, knowing that you have a safety net in place should an unfortunate incident occur.
