Option A - is Employer’s liability insurance claimable defined cost?
My subcontractor has argued:
"The Guidance notes published by the NEC state that for the Schedule of Cost components, payments made to people to meet the requirements for the law includes employer’s liability insurance. The Guidance notes that that for the Shorter schedule of Cost Components, that the intention is that amounts paid cover all of the specific items (including 13(i)) listed in the full Schedule of Cost Components.
Therefore Employer’s liability is a claimable defined cost in Compensation Events."
Can anyone provide some guidance please?
