Grammar notes
Employers' liability insurance insures employers against the costs of compensation for those employees who are injured or made ill at work through the fault of their employer. Contrary to IIDB, which is a state benefit and does not involve fault being established, EL insurance requires the courts to establish the negligence of an employer. Compulsory for employers since 1972, this insurance is provided by insurance companies and through the Lloyd's market.
It provides greater security to firms against costs which could otherwise result in financial difficulty, and to employees that resources will be available for compensation even where firms have become insolvent. It supports the right of employees injured through their employer's negligence to be fairly compensated – the principle of ‘access to justice'; and the responsibility of employers to fund the costs of their negligence – the principle of ‘polluter pays'.
