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.Your employer should have a valid and up to date certificate of employer’s liability insurance. On this certificate the minimum lever of cover and the companies covered by the policy should be stated clearly. Just because your employer has a certificate of employer’s liability insurance does not mean that they have the right to ignore health and safety guidelines or make employees use faulty of defective equipment.
