The importance of properly conducting the defence of employee claims can be seen by recent figures. Tribunal awards alone can put a business into administration, not allowing for fees that can average about £10,000 for a standard unfair dismissal hearing.
As part of our insurance package we can offer insurance cover for legal fees and any awards stemming from a tribunal hearing. This can be included as a monthly premium. At the moment employees or former employees do not have to pay to raise a claim in an employment tribunal. Now is the best time to ensure your business is fully protected from any such claims. With our insurance package we can provide you with unlimited, high quality advice, all the way through to the bitter end, all for a set monthly price.
