We believe in prevention rather than cure
When you enter into a contract with us, we will take out an insurance policy on your behalf which provides you with insurance if you are taken to employment tribunal and lose your case.
This insurance gives you the peace of mind that, when you take and follow the advice that we give you on the particular circumstances, that you will not have to pay the compensation awarded to the employee at tribunal if they make claim and win it. This is because we base our advice on our knowledge of employment legislation and are confident that, when you follow our advice, you will win your claim if you are taken to tribunal.
In order to retain valid cover under the policy, you must take advice from the 24 Hour Employment Law Advice Service at all of the relevant stages, and you must follow the advice we give you.
The insurance will cover any findings of unfair dismissal for conduct, capability, redundancy, statutory ban or some other substantial reason. It will also cover compensation awarded in indirect discrimination claims.
There are other conditions attached to the insurance policy and it is important that you read and understand its provisions.
In the event that you are served with Tribunal papers from a current or former employee you should notify our Legal Services Case Preparation Department as soon as possible. If you are faced with a Health and Safety prosecution, contact our Health and Safety department without delay.
