More on employers liability insurance
Employers liability insurance covers you against claims made against you by your employees and is available for most trades and professions in the UK.
When you have staff in a UK company, employers liability is a legal requirement. When you are not a limited company then staff is classed as any person who works for you excluding yourself, business partners or family members. Labour-only subcontractors are also staff. Labour-only subcontractors can be defined as those people working under your guidance and using your tools and equipment.
When you are a limited company with one person and you own less than 51% of the company then law requires that you are covered with this type of policy. If you are a limited company with more than one person then this cover is required no matter how much of the company you own.
