Employers Liability Insurance

Do you know that if you have employees, employer’s liability insurance with cover of at least €13 million is recommended in order to protect your employees and your business alike?

As a business you are at increased risk of having to pay serious money if the court rules against you. Even if you are exonerated in court, you could still end up paying huge legal fees and wasting time. Your business can be disrupted, your reputation can be tarnished, and you have to face the stressful ordeal of confronting an employee who has turned against you.

The law is heavily stacked in favour of the employee, because the onus will be on you to prove that you are not liable for whatever damages are claimed. If your defence is that the employee was injured because he or she didn’t perform their task properly, you can expect to be immediately questioned as to why proper supervision and training wasn’t provided to prevent such a possibility.

Maher & Richardson Ltd can assist businesses of any size with arranging employer’s liability insurance. To increase the level of protection and cost-effectiveness, it is advisable to combine this insurance with a range of business covers including public liability insurance, products liability insurance, and other similar insurances that your business may be in need of. Talk to Maher & Richardson to get the best advice for your business now. Call Barry on (01) 2804626/7 or email him using our contact form.
