    5. Employers Liability

    Employers Liability

    If you have employees, and you do not hold Employers’ Liability cover, you may be in breach of legal requirements.

    An employee isn’t solely classed as someone where you are responsible for their tax and national insurance contributions. If you have volunteers, assistants, helpers or work experience students, paid or unpaid, full time or part time, who are working under your supervision, direction or control, they could be deemed employees.

    Limited companies that have two or more directors require compulsory Employers’ Liability cover, regardless of whether they are family businesses, or the directors are husband and wife.

    Are you the sole director holding more than 50% of the shares?
    Do you have any employees / volunteers assisting with your craft activities?
    (Excluding husband, wife, civil partner or close family relations)
    Does the Ltd company have any employees / volunteers?
    Employers Liability with a £10 million indemnity is automatically included.
