Litigation Insurance

Are you prepared to face legal action from one of your staff? Could your company cope with the huge cost of defending a case?

The Peninsula litigation insurance policy will protect you, giving you cover in unfair dismissal and indirect discrimination claims for as much as €2 million.

So, if the worst ever happens and you do lose a WRC claim, you won’t have to pay a thing. That’s peace of mind.

Helping you avoid penalties

The awards for losing a WRC claim can be huge. A former employee can win two years’ pay for unfair dismissal (make that five years’ pay if there's a whistleblowing element) with the highest recorded award currently sitting at €1.25m. Discrimination awards can be up to two 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.
