Do I need both public liability + employers’ liability insurance?
There are two types of Zumba instructor liability insurance: one that protects you against accidents and incidents involving your employees and one that involves members of the public. Any business that employs one or more members of staff is required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance. But when it comes to members of the public, you’re not legally obliged to have public liability insurance. That said, most experts highly recommend public liability insurance as a way of fully protecting your business.
