Employers’ Liability

Volume 506: debated on Monday 22 February 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions when she plans to announce her decision on the feasibility of a compulsory database for recording details for employers' liability insurance policies. (316832)

The Government published a consultation document ‘Accessing Compensation—Supporting people who need to trace Employers' Liability Insurance’ on 10 February 2010. This consultation document discusses the best way of setting up and administering such a compulsory database as well as consulting on an Employers' Liability Insurance Bureau. This would be a compensation fund of last resort and would ensure that more individuals who are unable to trace employers' liability insurance records would receive compensation.
