Indemnities from Contractors

Contractor Indemnities

Sometimes contractors will say that they will indemnify the agency from any liability if the agency allows them to work the way the wish to. However, while it is probably better than nothing, a contractor indemnity is actually worth very little. In the scale of indemnities, a contractor is a “man of straw”. It is rare if ever that a UK agency has enforced an indemnity clause against a contractor. For this reason, in such cases it is always preferable to get an umbrella company between ourselves and the contractor. An indemnity from an umbrella company will carry much more substance.
