Protection

Even well managed businesses have to deal with difficult staff issues that could lead to an Employment Tribunal claim. With insurance protection, should your business face a claim, we will fight your corner to get the best possible outcome. You will have peace of mind knowing that you can get the legal help you need without having to worry about the cost of legal fees, settlement payments or Tribunal awards.

Unlike some insurers, you will be covered, even if your chance of successfully defending a claim is less than 51% or if you haven’t taken advice on the issue that gave rise to the claim* (an excess applies). This ensures you always have the full protection you need.

And it’s not just Employment Tribunal claims that are covered. You have the option to include cover for a broad range of claims against your business and its officers and directors, such as regulatory investigations and prosecutions, health and safety defence, cyber crime, contract disputes and data protection breaches.

This is the Protection you could opt for with HELP:

• Employment practices liability insurance
• Company legal liability insurance
• Directors’ and officers’ liability insurance
