Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These regulations are made under the Employers' Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act 1969. They amend the Employers' Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Regulations 1998 by inserting a new paragraph into Schedule 2 of those regulations. The effect of the change is to exempt an incorporated company run by its owner, who is also the sole employee of the company, from the requirement to take out employers' liability insurance.

These regulations reduce costs on businesses; an assessment of this impact has been made. Copies of the Regulatory Impact Assessment have been placed in the libraries of both Houses of Parliament. Additional copies may be obtained from the DWP Regulatory Impact Unit, 1-11 John Adam Street, London, WC2N 6HT.

S.I. 1998 No 2573, as amended by S.I. 1999/1820, S.I. 2000/253 and S.I. 2003/1615.
