Under the employers liability act of 1969 most employers are required by law to insure against liability for injury or disease to their employees as a result of doing their job. There is a law called the Employer’s Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act which basically means that your employer has to have liability insurance of an appropriate level to cover against any work related accidents or illnesses. Your employer should have a copy of their liability insurance in the workplace which is available for all staff members to see.
