Compare Tilers Insurance

Most people would think a tiler had a pretty safe job; however, accidents can happen in any type of business. Each day brings new challenges and risks to your job. As a professional tiler, you and your business need protection from the risks that come with your trade. What would happen if you accidentally damaged a client’s bathroom cabinet? Or what would happen if someone tripped over tools left on the floor? The result, in many cases, is a compensation claim and legal fees. These can be extremely expensive.

What if I Have No Employees? Do I Still Need Employer’s Liability Insurance?

I’m Self-Employed, Do I Need Employer’s Liability Insurance?
If you’re self-employed and work on your own, then you do not require this type of insurance policy. The only time you may need this is if a client requires you have employer’s liability insurance to work on a project.
Do I Need Employer’s Liability Insurance for a Limited Company?
Yes, if you run a limited company and employ one or more, or if you have more than one director, then you’ll need employer’s liability insurance. If you only employ close family members, and your company is incorporated, then you’ll also need employer’s liability insurance in this scenario.
Do I Need Insurance for Temporary Workers?
In most cases, if you have short-term staff, contractors, or casual workers, then you will more than likely be required to have employer’s liability insurance.
Do I Need Employer’s Insurance for Subcontractors?
The answer depends. If you’re hiring “labour-only” subcontractors who work under your management and use your materials/tools, then they are legally seen as employees. They will need to be covered by employer’s liability insurance. However, those subcontractors who are “bona fide” work under their own direction and use their own materials/goods will not need to be covered by employee’s liability insurance.
Do I Need Employer’s Liability Insurance for Volunteers?
While it’s not legally required, it can be a good idea to invest in employer’s liability insurance. The reason is that you want to protect the business in case a volunteer makes a compensation claim against you. However, if you already have employer’s liability insurance, then volunteers may be covered under the policy. If you’re not sure, then it’s a good idea to check with your insurance provider.
Do I Need Employer’s Liability Insurance for Students on Work Experience?
Yes, employer’s liability insurance is required to cover work experience students and anyone on a work placement.
