Helping you avoid penalties
The awards for losing a WRC claim can be huge. A former employee can win 2 years’ pay for unfair dismissal (make that 5 years’ pay if there is a whistleblowing element) with the highest recorded award currently sitting at €1.25m. Discrimination awards can be up to 4 years’ pay or even unlimited in gender discrimination claims. And that doesn’t take solicitor and court fees into account.
Few, if any, small businesses can survive such penalties, let alone have the money to fight the case without cover.
At Peninsula, we understand that. It’s why our clients get legal protection insurance as a core part of the service, and we’ll even represent you.
So even if you don’t yet need it, it’s reassuring to know you have it.
