Your questions answered
Do charities need employers liability insurance for volunteers and students?
Do I need employers insurance for volunteers at a charity?
Are volunteers covered?
Are charities liable for volunteers?
Do I need insurance for volunteers?
Having employer's liability insurance is compulsory by law if you have paid staff with a minimum level of £5m cover. Although it is not mandatory for volunteers, charities still face liabilities for sickness and harm caused to volunteers. Many charities, therefore, choose to transfer this risk through insurance. We can help you get protected against the risks you and your volunteers face.
Is it a legal requirement to have employers liability?
Yes, though you are only obligated by law to do so if you have staff or employees on payroll and must cover to a level of £5m for sickness and injury caused to employees while undertaking duties.
What does employer's liability cover you for?
This policy will cover legal expenses and settle claims against an organisation by an employee for work-related injuries or damage.
Do volunteers have any legal rights?
Volunteers don’t usually have a contract, so a volunteer’s rights will not be the same as employees. However, as the Charity Commission advises. Charities have a responsibility to ensure adequate training and controls are put in place to protect volunteers from risks.
