Employers Liability Insurance for Charities
Charity employers liability insurance is designed to protect charities against the compensation costs resulting from illness or injury to an employee.
If a business or charity employ one or more people then it is a legal requirement to hold employers liability insurance.
Charities, care providers and not for profit groups also owe a duty of care to volunteers who can also claim injury or illness against you.
You can be fined up to £2,500 for each day that you do not hold employers liability cover. Additionally, if the cover is not in place, any compensation costs arising out of illness or injury to an employee would need to be met by the organisation or its trustees.
