Do I need Employers’ Liability Insurance?
It’s your responsibility as an employer to protect the health and safety of your employees during working hours. You’re legally required to have employers’ liability cover in place if you employ one or more people.
Some companies don’t need Employers’ Liability Insurance, such as businesses that only employ close family members. In these instances, while it isn’t a legal obligation to have Employers’ Liability Insurance, lots of businesses still choose it for the financial security it provides.
