Thanks for requesting me.
It does not change the answer.
A Director is an employee.
He wont be personally liable.
The company would be liable.
Does that help?
Thank you; yes, it helps.
More details about the situation: (1) the agency will pay me on the strength of the signed timesheet alone, even without me sending them an invoice. (2) In the agency's agreement with me (which they entitle 'Limited Company Agreement')
... they state that my company 'will fully indemnify the agency and the hirer against any ... costs arising from any breach of this agreement or any negligent or unlawful act or omission by you causing loss to us or any third party' and that my company will 'maintain during and for 12 months after an assignment insurance in accordance with' the foregoing requirement.
Regarding (1), in the Agreement it does actually state that payment to my company will be made on the submission of an invoice.
Regardless of these details, am I correct in saying that the over-riding consideration is that my doing the work on behalf of the company and the submission of company invoices for the work done means that liability is held by the company and cannot be passed on to me personally?
Thank you very much for your help, Alex, especially as it has been over the week end. Now I am confident to continue in my job without taking out PI insurance.
