This leaflet is aimed at employees. It provides information about employers' liability insurance and employer responsibilities for displaying their liability insurance certificate.

It is intended to help employees understand how their health and safety is insured during work-related activities - so that any injury or illness, whether on or off site, is covered through the employer's insurance policy.

It also covers exemptions to employers' liability insurance, as well as issues surrounding employers' liability insurance for family members.

This latest revision provides updated contact details and links to further information.
