Do you know that, as a business owner, you’re legally required to take out a minimum £5m employers’ liability insurance cover?

Many employers in Great Britain are confused about the compulsory cover. In March 2013, the Health & Safety Executive fined a self-employed maintenance worker £1,200 after a friend he had taken on was injured on the job. He also had to pay £1000 in costs.

But the price could be much higher.

Here are some details on Employers’ Liability (EL), including possible exceptions to liability insurance for small business. For full details, contact your insurer or the DWP.

Employers’ vs Public Liability Insurance

Under the Employers’ Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act 1969, EL is compulsory. It covers businesses for claims brought by employees, during or after their period of employment, for injury or illness contracted on the job.

Public liability insurance is voluntary. It covers businesses against claims brought by members of the public who sustain injury or damage to property while on the premises for business purposes.

Where to Get Employers’ Liability Insurance

You must buy cover from an insurer that is licensed under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000.

Does Your Business Qualify for EL Exemption?

In general, EL is compulsory for people you employ under a contract of service or apprenticeship. It is not compulsory for:

  • Employees working outside England, Scotland, and Wales. Though you must have EL for employees based abroad who spend more than 14 days at one stretch per year in Great Britain
  • Family businesses that are NOT limited companies and where all employees are close relatives
  • Businesses where the sole employee is also the business owner and he/she owns 50% of the issued share capital
  • Check if your motor insurance covers employee injury and illness due to motor accidents they are in while working for you

Check with your policy provider about EL for:

  • Students working unpaid, people unemployed but doing youth/adult training, and school students on work experience
  • Freelance contractors, even if they work for others, supply their own equipment, and you don’t deduct income tax/NI. HMRC may still see them as employees for tax and insurance purposes

Remember that you must make your certificate of Employers’ Liability Insurance accessible to employees and to Health & Safety Executive Inspectors. If you don’t, you face a fine of £1000.

    Obama’s 95% Illusion
    It depends on what the meaning of ‘tax cut’ is.

    One of Barack Obama’s most potent campaign claims is that he’ll cut taxes for no less than 95% of “working families.” He’s even promising to cut taxes enough that the government’s tax share of GDP will be no more than 18.2% — which is lower than it is today.
    AP
    It’s a clever pitch, because it lets him pose as a middle-class tax cutter while disguising that he’s also proposing one of the largest tax increases ever on the other 5%. But how does he conjure this miracle, especially since more than a third of all Americans already pay no income taxes at all? There are several sleights of hand, but the most creative is to redefine the meaning of “tax cut.”
    For the Obama Democrats, a tax cut is no longer letting you keep more of what you earn. In their lexicon, a tax cut includes tens of billions of dollars in government handouts that are disguised by the phrase “tax credit.” Mr. Obama is proposing to create or expand no fewer than seven such credits for individuals:

    – A $500 tax credit ($1,000 a couple) to “make work pay” that phases out at income of $75,000 for individuals and $150,000 per couple.
    – A $4,000 tax credit for college tuition.
    – A 10% mortgage interest tax credit (on top of the existing mortgage interest deduction and other housing subsidies).
    – A “savings” tax credit of 50% up to $1,000.
    – An expansion of the earned-income tax credit that would allow single workers to receive as much as $555 a year, up from $175 now, and give these workers up to $1,110 if they are paying child support.
    – A child care credit of 50% up to $6,000 of expenses a year.
    – A “clean car” tax credit of up to $7,000 on the purchase of certain vehicles.
    Here’s the political catch. All but the clean car credit would be “refundable,” which is Washington-speak for the fact that you can receive these checks even if you have no income-tax liability. In other words, they are an income transfer — a federal check — from taxpayers to nontaxpayers. Once upon a time we called this “welfare,” or in George McGovern’s 1972 campaign a “Demogrant.” Mr. Obama’s genius is to call it a tax cut.
    The Tax Foundation estimates that under the Obama plan 63 million Americans, or 44% of all tax filers, would have no income tax liability and most of those would get a check from the IRS each year. The Heritage Foundation’s Center for Data Analysis estimates that by 2011, under the Obama plan, an additional 10 million filers would pay zero taxes while cashing checks from the IRS.
    The total annual expenditures on refundable “tax credits” would rise over the next 10 years by $647 billion to $1.054 trillion, according to the Tax Policy Center. This means that the tax-credit welfare state would soon cost four times actual cash welfare. By redefining such income payments as “tax credits,” the Obama campaign also redefines them away as a tax share of GDP. Presto, the federal tax burden looks much smaller than it really is.
    The political left defends “refundability” on grounds that these payments help to offset the payroll tax. And that was at least plausible when the only major refundable credit was the earned-income tax credit. Taken together, however, these tax credit payments would exceed payroll levies for most low-income workers.
    It is also true that John McCain proposes a refundable tax credit — his $5,000 to help individuals buy health insurance. We’ve written before that we prefer a tax deduction for individual health care, rather than a credit. But the big difference with Mr. Obama is that Mr. McCain’s proposal replaces the tax subsidy for employer-sponsored health insurance that individuals don’t now receive if they buy on their own. It merely changes the nature of the tax subsidy; it doesn’t create a new one.
    There’s another catch: Because Mr. Obama’s tax credits are phased out as incomes rise, they impose a huge “marginal” tax rate increase on low-income workers. The marginal tax rate refers to the rate on the next dollar of income earned. As the nearby chart illustrates, the marginal rate for millions of low- and middle-income workers would spike as they earn more income.
    Some families with an income of $40,000 could lose up to 40 cents in vanishing credits for every additional dollar earned from working overtime or taking a new job. As public policy, this is contradictory. The tax credits are sold in the name of “making work pay,” but in practice they can be a disincentive to working harder, especially if you’re a lower-income couple getting raises of $1,000 or $2,000 a year. One mystery — among many — of the McCain campaign is why it has allowed Mr. Obama’s 95% illusion to go unanswered.

    So, lemme get this straight. Obama is GONNA RAISE TAXES sky high, and if you say you won’t be affected ’cause it’ll only be the RICH…well, the RICH own the COMPANIES the POOR PEOPLE work at. So..YES…jobs will end, wages will go down, etc. Democrats, last time a President raised taxes in a bad economic time, we went into a Great Depression, see Herbert Hoover. There will be more black people running in the future, if that’s the only reason why you’re voting for him…’cause I can’t possibly think of anything else, that;s pathetic.

    This is a long story. A photographer came to my workplace wanting to take photos for his portfolio. My workplace usually charges a fee for this, instead, they offered to let him take photos for free if he’d do some shots for their web page in exchange. There was no contract signed in this agreement, nor any waiver for lost or damaged equipment.

    The photographer put his $1200 lens out on a table and left the room. A coworker and I were checking out some handheld spotlights. When I handed them back to my coworker, we didn’t connect and one was dropped on the table on which the lens was sitting. I don’t know if my coworker also bumped the table in trying to catch the light, but the lens was shaken and fell to the concrete floor.

    We apologized and when he demanded money from us a week later for the broken lens, we went to our superiors to tell them about the situation. In discussions with the photographer, my employers decided that my coworker and I should handle it privately with the photographer.

    We were told by others not to call him as it was his fault for leaving expensive equipment out, etc. We called him finally because he was threatening to sue us for the expense. He’s asking us to each pay one third of the cost, about $400 each, and a used lens is only $100 less than a new one ($1200); his warranty/insurance has run out as the lens is 3 years old.

    Is this right? Should we pay him or should our employer have paid him? Should he sue our employer instead? Is it just too bad for him and nobody owes him anything? Are there legal issues with this I should know about? Obviously if we tell him to do this or if he does sue the company I could lose my job, I work in an at-will employment state. Complicated, I know.

    I already posted this question once, but yahoo answers isn’t letting me view the answers for some reason:

    I recently accepted a job as a security officer for a large piece of property with many businesses. I’ll be working a graveyard shift, and the area is pretty high crime. I will not be using my own transportation, instead I’ll be using public transit. My main duties are to observe, and report incidents. I don’t have to confront suspicious people, but more so make note of suspicious people. The thing is, I can’t be armed. I’m not even suppose to carry a pocket knife, and I’m going to be the only guard out there over night. The transit station has had two shootings, a stabbing, and a couple of muggings over the past few months.

    Does anyone think it’s unfair that I can’t even bring a weapon to defend myself when I’m en route home?

    Example:

    What if I’m confronted by 4-5 guys? What if some random person pulls a knife on me and tries to mug me?? How am I suppose to defend myself? I’m trained in both knife and firearms tactics, yet the company prohibits me from carrying them while on shift, due to an insurance and liability issue.

    I’ve undergone weapons training at the state criminal justice training academy, and have owned firearms for years. I have armed guard experience as well.

    I’d rather be armed and not need it than need it and not be armed.

    Can anyone honestly say that they’d feel comfortable working this job, being in my position?

    Let’s be logical for a second.

    Think:

    You’re an unarmed guard, with not even a pocket knife. You’re working overnight in a high crime area. You’re 5 miles from where you live, and you’re taking public transportation. The transit center where you catch your bus has had shootings, stabbings, and muggings several times in the last month.

    Every thug hates a security guard. You’re waiting for your bus, and see a group of 4-6 thuggish looking people walking by. You’re a sitting target. The security position is a private position for guarding one area of property. My employer is the owner of the property. It Is NOT a security company. The reason they can’t keep an employee is due to the ridiculous rules of being unarmed. I know it’s up to me to take the job, or not to take the job, but I want to know opinions as to if you agree with the company policies or not.

    RK I saw all of those answers, but the page is telling me I have more answers than I really do.

    I had an accident at work. I went to file a few documents away, there is a table near the filing cabinets, as I was walking to the filing cabinet I did not see the boxes, as I turned back to go to my desk, I turned and fell on my right side, catching the edge of the table with my hand. There was a tingling sensation, but nothing too serious. Well today I have been getting excruciating shooting pains in my hand and arm.

    I was inform to report the incident which I did and make a log of it. I was also advised to see my GP.

    I type at work, and the incident is seriously affecting my ability to write at such a speed.

    I am in my probationary period and my review is in December, should I make a Personal Injury claim or not?

    How can you cut something from zero?
    Isn’t that a lie by Barack Obama?
    A few facts that people are missing:

    The top 1% wage earners pay about 39% of all taxes, the top 5% pays about 60%, and the bottom 35% of workers pay zero taxes.
    A tax credit if a worker pays no taxes is not a tax cut, it is Government Welfare.

    That is not a “tax cut”

    It still appears Obama is lying unless someone can prove otherwise.

    I am an engineer who works with several other engineers that work for small buisnesses. Basically themselves with no plans on hiring anyone else. But technically a small buisness.

    Does anyone know what % of people employed by small buisness making over 250K.
    I mean if the 5% employ 80% of the workers for small buisness, then isn’t that what matters?
    The average is not important, it would be the medium.
    Let me put it this way.
    9 self employments making 75K a year.
    1 small buisness makes 1.3 million and employs 50 people.
    The average income is 200K. Only 10% would be tax increased. That buisness employs 85% of the workers.

    I’m 17 and I was wondering if it would be worthwhile starting my own small business to hire out a jumping castle in my local area.
    (Victoria, Australia)

    The only problem is i’m not sure how to start and i’m worried about public liability insurance (How much would that cost?) as the last thing I want is for someone to get hurt.

    Has anyone had experience in this area or have any tips/advice for me?

    Much appreciated.

    I am renting a studio in a large mill building. The studios for rent are for business purposes only, not for residential purposes. I need to be covered for $1,000,000 public liability insurance according to my lease. I have been searching around, but it seems i can only find regular renters insurance, which is mainly for renting a place where you live. I don’t really know much about insurance, so any information would be helpful.
    Thanks!

    I am a self employed sub-contractor for a drylining and plastering company. I am trying to get public liability insurance but every single insurance website or insurance comparing website keeps asking me for my business details and address and whether I have any employees and how long business has been trading etc….obviously none of these are applicable to me as I don’t own and run a business but can’t complete the form without the details. Can any other sub contractors tell me how they filled theirs in?

  21. Chae June 28, 2013 at 10:26 am #

    Am starting a small cleaning business., I have called a few companies and it seems 5 Million is the lowest threshold for Public Liability Insurance.

    Even if I tried i don’t think I could do more than, say, 50 thousand worth of damage. Where can i get Insurance for 50 or 100 thousand (and yearly payments to match)?

    cheers

    I’m trying to start my own hire company, specifically kayaks, and after reading many legislative and legal documents it appears, if one owns/ creates a statutory deceleration form there is no need for public liability insurance. I also think back when using kayaks on holidays it’s always just a deceleration form needed to be filled. Please help

    I’m about to set up a small sole trader business in the UK making furniture and I am going to be moving into a small industrial unit which I will be renting. I have been advised by the people who are renting out the unit that I need to get personal and public liability insurance. I have done a few searches on the internet but I can’t see any companies that have a combined policy. In other words it seems I have to get two seperate insurance policies for personal and public insurance. Is this right? Or is it the case that public liability also includes personal liability.

    I have been there for 3 years, had a one year lease and after first year it is now month to month. now he wants me to sign lease and he added in this lease that I must take out $100,000.00 public liability insurance. Can he do this? I do not own the property.

    I want to exhibit at a gallery which has shown my work before. I would have to pay a fee to effectively rent the space for a period. The gallery would take a 25% commission on any sales. It is run as a business but has charitable status.
    For the first time they are asking me to provide evidence of public liability insurance. Should not this be in place, provided by the gallery, as the owners/providers of the premises? Surely I don’t have to insure against someone being shocked by a colour combination or offended by a painting.
    I understand that I have obligations as a maker of objects for sale but this is distinct from protecting third party interest whilst viewing my work in a gallery.
    I have exhibited in this gallery twice before without having to take out insurance . There has been no change in management since then.

    Hi, so my friends and I are having a party in a month and we’re considering holding it at a local school hall. I called the person in charge of organizing the hall hire and they said that I need public liability insurance to hire it out for the night. How do I go about getting the insurance and roughly how much will it cost? We wanted to hire the room for about four hours and use it to accommodate about 15 people. Simple answers would be best since I don’t know all the fancy words describing finances and Insurance. Thank you!

    In the UK (Northwest) how much about are people paying for their public liability insurance.We dont have an address yet for our new venture so I cant get a quote, I just want a general idea from anyone already paying it. We are fully aware of all the things we need to do, standards we need to meet, how to register e.c.t. its just this Im struggling to find & I need to include it in my business plan.

    I am wanting to volunteer but for all cases the job attribute requires you to have public liability and personal accident insurance. I am seventeen, how do I/where do you apply for this? Thanks! 🙂
