Employers’ liability insurance can cover you if an employee becomes injured or ill as a result of the work they are doing for you and decides to make a claim. It’s usually a legal requirement for employers.
Other insurance products
If your business requires additional types of insurance - for example, an IT contractor might want cyber and data insurance - you can add other kinds of insurance when you build your policy.
