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.

“I am very pleased with the speed and efficiency that my claim has received. One hears so much about the ‘Big Bad’ insurance companies, and as this is the first claim that I have had to make in over 40 years as a homeowner, I was not looking forward to the process. I have to say that both yourselves and Ecclesiastical have been extremely easy to deal with and my claim has been speedily dealt with. The whole process has been painless, helped in no small way by your pleasant E-mails. Thank you once again.”
