Insurance carriers likely to increase the cost of medical programs in light of new employer obligations
We’re often asked for an explanation of this compulsory insurance in the UK.
Employers' liability (EL) insurance enables businesses to meet the costs of damages and legal fees for employees who are injured or made ill at work through the fault of the employer. Employees injured due to an employer's negligence can seek compensation even if the business goes into liquidation or receivership. EL insurance is largely equivalent to the US concept of Workers Compensation insurance.
