Funeral directors

Liability insurance covered for funeral directors


Just as with every other business in the UK, any funeral directors business that has one or more employees is required by law to have suitable employers’ liability insurance.


All employers are responsible for the health, safety and welfare of their employees while they are at work. If an employee sustains accident injury or occupational illness in the performance of their job, they may seek to claim compensation for their pain, injury and suffering. The Employers’ Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act 1969 makes it clear that employers must have a minimum level of insurance cover in place to guard against these claims.


By purchasing funeral directors employers’ liability cover with Tredstone, you will ensure that you are able to pay full compensation in the event that one of your employees sustains injuries or illness in relation to their work.


Being without employers’ liability cover worth at least £5 million is against the law and can result in fines of up to £2,500 for every day you are not properly insured, while another £1,000 fine can be imposed if you do not display your employers liability certificate or refuse to make it available to inspectors when they ask.
