An Act of Parliament in the UK that requires employers to carry insurance against the personal injury of their employees.
Employers' liability insurance will enable organisations to meet the cost of compensation for their employees' injuries or illnesses whether they are caused on or off-site. However, any injuries and illnesses relating to motor accidents that occur while your employees are working for you may be covered separately by your motor insurance. The organisation must use an authorised insurer.
