An assessment of the level of compliance with the statutory duty to obtain insurance under the Employers’ Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act 1969
If employees become ill or injured at work, they might be able to claim compensation from their employer. The ELCI Act (1969) requires that employers take out insurance against such claims. There are some exemptions to this, including public bodies, and those employing specified relatives only.
Previous research in this area has found inconsistent levels of compliance, and some of it is quite out-of-date. This research was undertaken to provide a robust measure of levels of compliance in order to support policy development in this area.
