About a third of homes in Britain employ someone to help with domestic jobs, such as cleaning or gardening.
You may not be aware that the contents section of your home insurance policy typically covers domestic employer’s liability – that is your legal liability for damages paid as compensation for an accident to someone working in your home that results in injury or illness – up to £10 million for any one incident.
But domestic employer’s liability cover usually isn’t provided under the buildings section of home insurance policies, so if you have only bought buildings insurance then you may not have cover if someone working in your home were to have an accident.
