We offer separate cover options for Public and Employers Liability; two different types of additional business cover.
Employers Liability insurance is a legal requirement. That includes businesses that employ as little as one person, according to the Employers Liability (Compulsory Act) 1969. For every day that you’re not insured, a fine of up to £2500 is payable. Furthermore, if someone does file against you, your insurance claim could cover legal expenses and other damages.
But what does it actually cover? You’re responsible for the health and safety of your employees while they’re at work. A full-time employee, volunteer, or contractor: they could all try to claim compensation from you. We offer a range of cover options to protect your business in the event of such claims. Contact one of our team for a quote, or if you have any questions about this type of cover.
Public Liability insurance can be essential in protecting your assets from claims from members of the public. The public might visit your premises, or merely receive deliveries from you. Something as simple as a spill over a client’s computer, or a wet floor causing a customer to slip while visiting your office, could cost you thousands if you’re not insured.
Public Liability Insurance can be a confusing concept. In simple terms, a public liability insurance policy covers you if someone is injured in some way by your business, or if you damage third party property when visiting it on work business. Fines could be incurred for even a minor scratch to another car on a car park, and you could be required to pay legal fees if the case goes to court. Don’t worry – our polices can cover these costs, too.
We offer a range insurance packages for different business types, and can advise you on the level of cover that you’re likely to need to keep costs down whilst providing the protection you need. If you work in the public sector, for example, you could be required to take out a minimum of £5 million on your public liability insurance.
