Dutch term or phrase: werkgeveraansprakelijkheid
The actual phrase is "werkgeveraansprakelijkheid, werkgeversaanspr." Does anyone know the difference between werkgeveraansprakelijkheid (no 's') and werkgeversaanspr. (with an ''s')?
Assuming this = werkgeversaansprakelijkheid ?

No more context unfortunately.

"Employers' liability insurance

Insurance for employers

Growth and progress often starts with new employees, but added responsibility can carry a few risks. If you employ one or more people, employers’ liability insurance - sometimes called EL insurance - is a legal requirement for your business. Save time and money by adding it to your single business policy – it slots right in alongside your public liability insurance, plus any additional covers you may need. Grab a quote below, and put a policy in place today." (http://www.simplybusiness.co.uk/insurance/employers-liabilit... )

NOTE:

It seems FELOnline and JurLex don't agree on where to put the hyphen.

I'd probably opt for "employers' liability" myself.

agree  Adrian MM. (X): employer's vs. employer liability (insurance etc.) liability: the missing 's' can be easily accommodated cf. in DE: Werk(s)vertrag.

  -> Thanks!

agree  Barend van Zadelhoff: Self-examination leads me to believe :-) that I pronounce an s in this compound because I see it as 'aansprakelijkheid van de werkgever', in other words I see it as a genetive: employer's. That makes two of us. :-)

  -> Thanks Barend!

agree  Richard Purdom: I would rather call it 'employer insurance' like I would say 'dog food' not 'dog's food' when making a dog's dinner - but I see that's not the majority view so would use - employer's - to keep proofreaders happy. - Employers' - is wrong IMO. (edited)

  -> Not sure. A quick Google would seem to indicate "employers' liability insurance" is more common. See e.g. https://www.gov.uk/employers-liability-insurance + http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1969/57/contents + http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/hse40.pdf etc.

disagree  freekfluweel: Geen antwoord op de vraag! Asker vraagt niet om een vertaling maar om het verschil tussen met en zonder 's'.
