Employee Tribunal Protection
The number of employment tribunal claims has risen dramatically by 56% in 2009-10. Reasons vary from unfair dismissal, breach of contract, discrimination and increasingly, incorrect management of the redundancy process. Tribunal claims cost companies an average of £7,000 even when they win and many thousands more when they don’t.
Starting from under £200 per year you can cover the costs of legal representation and Awards. The policy covers Grassroots professional fees up to £100,000 and for a partner level employment lawyer to represent your business for any allegations of unfair dismissal or discrimination. If the case is lost, the cover also covers the costs of Awards up to £100,000. You can extend your Legal Expenses Insurance cover to include defending a criminal prosecution brought against your business such as a breach of the Health and Safety at Work Act.
