“Optional insurance linked to our service providing further peace of mind to our Employer Clients”
Employment Tribunal Defence Insurance
Even with the best possible advice it is impossible to guarantee an employer that they will not receive a claim. In 2013 the Government introduced a fee system in an effort to reduce the number of potentially vexatious claims being made to the Employment Tribunals. With the new rules a claimant is now required to pay a fee in order to pursue a claim. While this may be good news for employers, you may wish to protect your Business further by taking out Employment Tribunal Insurance to complement our highly successful defence rate.
Employers Peace of Mind
Some Clients like the peace of mind that Employment Tribunal Insurance brings to their Business. EBS Law has therefore teamed up with a leading provider of legal expenses insurance in order to introduce our Clients to the concept of Employment Tribunal Insurance. The financial consequences of failing to comply with the current UK employment law can be very serious for employers and compensation in cases involving discrimination or unfair dismissal can be tens of thousands of pounds. The main areas of risk for the employer are Discrimination and this includes Race, Age, Sex, Disability and Sexual Orientation, Redundancy, Unfair Dismissal including Constructive Dismissal and Whistle Blowing.
Employment Tribunal Insurance – What’s Included ?
In the event of an Employment Tribunal claim against your business the Employment Tribunal Insurance Policy will cover all the legal costs as well as any costs awarded by the Tribunal subject to the terms and conditions of the policy.
