Pest Control Insurance.
Q - Do I need Employers’ Liability Insurance?
A: This may depend on the type of business you are operating: -
Sole Trader – you will need Employers’ Liability if you employ any other person in the business.
Partnership – you will need Employers Liability insurance if anyone else is employed in the business other than you or your partner.
Limited Company – All persons in the business including Directors are classed as employees and as such you will need Employers Liability Insurance. The exception being if you are sole Director owning at least 50% of the shares and no-one else works in the business; in these circumstances the cover is not a requirement.
If your business utilises any casual labour the Employers’ Liability Insurance is required.
Q: Am I covered for Work Experience placements?
A: Should you accept any person under a work experience placement then the cover is automatically included as long as your business has Employers’ Liability Insurance in place. If not then you will need to contact us to arrange temporary cover. The additional cost will be around £15 depending on the length of the placement.

A: Yes cover is included as standard.
Q: Does the policy allow for the use of firearms and/or shooting?
