Liability > Employers Liability
Since the introduction of compulsory insurance legislation in 1969 it has been a legal requirement for employers to arrange insurance to meet the costs of compensation and legal fees for employees who are injured or made ill at work through the fault of the employer. It is now extremely difficult for an employer to successfully plead that they have not been negligent.
There is legal requirement to display a current certificate of Employers' Liability Insurance. The responsibility for enforcing this legislation is with the Health and Safety Executive whose responsibility it is to investigate all injury and illness at work.
THERE ARE FINES UP TO £2,500 FOR EACH DAY THAT THE REQUIRED INSURANCE IS NOT IN PLACE.
