Employer Liability Insurance

It is a legal requirement for all UK employers, including domestic employers, to hold Employers Liability Insurance.

Employer Liability Insurance will help you pay compensation if an employee is injured or becomes ill because of the work they do for you.  You can also be fined £2,500 every day that you are not properly insured.  Sometimes Home Insurance providers may provide this cover as part of your policy, so would be worth checking with them fist.

Employee Contract

An employment contract is a legal relationship between an employer and an employee.

This begins when an employee starts work, even if there is nothing in writing. The important things to remember are:

Anyone who is classed as an employee must be given the terms of their employment in writing. This is called a ‘written statement of employment particulars’. It must contain the main terms of their employment including pay and working hours. This is not an employment contract.
