Employment Protection Scheme

The easy and cost effective way to remove the burden of employment legislation from your business.

With the distraction of increasingly complex and costly employment legislation directly affecting the profitability of many businesses across the UK it could be time to look at how our expertise can allow you to focus on what you do best.

Organisations turn to us not only because they are facing more frequent employment disputes that are of a greater cost but also because the insurance or HR advisors they have engaged as protection are failing them.  Unregulated and unqualified advisors in call centres and cleverly constructed insurance get out clauses are often leaving clients confused and exposed.

To help employers deal with these problems we have launched a dedicated Employment Law Protection Scheme for our clients.

How Our Scheme Works

All services are carried out by regulated and qualified solicitors that will be known to you by name. It is comprised of 3 core components that have been designed to offer seamless financial and business continuity protection:-

1.   The Audit (Health Check)  your current policies and practices will be reviewed in order for us to get to know your business and establish how to bring you up to date with the latest legislation and achieve compliance within the law .

2.   Expert Advice (Ongoing Support & Dialogue) – Direct access to unlimited advice by a qualified employment law solicitor, who knows your business and understands your specific needs meaning you don’t have to deal with often vague and impersonal call centres. You are given clear advice that is in the best interest of your business.   This not only ensures that the matter is properly handled from the outset but also ensures that you are fully insured when you follow the advice given.  

3.  Insurance Policy (Financial Security) – We are fully authorised to manage your claim by insurers.  The policy fits with our services seamlessly and pays the legal costs of an employment dispute, covers settlements and the cost of awards.  This radically minimises your exposure to unexpected financial loss, and caps all your Employment and HR costs providing peace of mind.  In real terms this will often result in huge cost savings.  * Full details of the cover is available upon request
