TUC has accused employers of neglecting the cost of workplace injuries and
called on organisations to contribute more.
a submission to the Government, the TUC said the average UK company was only
paying £70 per employee towards the cost of compensating staff injured at work.
TUC claims the £18bn cost of workplace injury and illness is mostly paid for by
the Government and the victims themselves.
a meeting with MPs, the TUC said British employers pay less than a sixth of the
amount contributed by most developed countries.
submission is part of the Government’s review of employer liability insurance
which involves the CBI and the Association of British Insurers.
