Requirements and cover
With a few exceptions, the Employers' Liability Insurance (Compulsory Insurance) Act 1969 requires employers to insure their liability to their employees in respect of personal injury, disease or death sustained in the course of their employment in Great Britain. The University has this cover and details of the current insurer, the policy number and the amount can be found on the Insurance Section web page.
The term 'employee' includes unpaid volunteers working under the direct supervision of University staff on University business. School children on work placements at the University are considered to be employees under the terms of this insurance and a letter confirming this can be provided by the Insurance Section on request.
The Job Opportunities section of Human Resources provide guidance on work placements at the University.
