La Playa: Insurance with Intelligence®

Employers’ Liability Insurance

The definition of 'employee' in arts and entertainment can vary widely; it's important to consider insurance for freelancers, volunteers, tour managers... Your staff are your greatest asset - and you have a duty of care to keep them safe and well at work.
Employers' Liability Insurance is mandatory for companies in the UK. It's designed to protect you from costs arising from your liability for employee injuries or illness arising in the workplace.

What if...

  • An employee falls or trips at work because of loose carpet or cabling? - the injury prevents them from working for several weeks during which time you have to pay sick leave as well as hire-in a temp to cover them
  • An employee wins a court case against you? - you're now liable to pay damages and their legal fees, on top of your own
  • An employee makes a mistake while working which results in injury? - but you're found liable because you didn't provide adequate H&S training
  • You forget to take out cover for a summer intern joining your team? - and get fined £2,500 for every day they worked

Cover can include:

  • Legal costs
  • Compensation due
  • Court attendance compensation
  • Claims for injury and disease - including those caused by terrorism
  • All employees - including volunteers working for you

Specialist & Independent

The arts present a very specific set of risk exposures – and now your digital and online risks can expose you globally. We understand the risks and pressures you face - and we speak your language. We’ll support you with great advice - helping you make good decisions for your organisation.

Our policies can help streamline costs, and we’ll always help you stay ahead of the game in managing risk. The show must always go on - insurance isn’t just about processing a claim, it’s about thinking laterally to solve challenges and problems fast.

At La Playa, we’re passionate about the arts and creative industries – many of us are practitioners and active consumers; in fact, La Playa founded the first ever corporate art collective!

As a Lloyd's broker, La Playa has solutions for even the most complex risks, and our services also include Business Protection and Employee Benefits. But what does "Boutique Service" actually look like?
