Direct payments and employers liability insurance
If we take direct payments (on behalf of our disabled son) and then to help with caring, employ someone (rather than use an agency), who pays for the employers liability insurance? Do the council make allowance for that cost in the direct payment total? We can ask them when we meet in a few weeks but wondered if the community could advise beforehand. Thanks in advance.
