Protection when you need it most

As an employer you have many responsibilities and obligations to your staff, with new employment regulations and legislation being introduced all the time. Keeping up to date with the latest employment law changes can guard against the significant financial penalties of non-compliance, giving you the peace of mind to get on with the day to day running of your business.

A financial safeguard

The threat of an employment dispute is an increasing one in today's workplace, and with unlimited awards for discrimination, and awards for unfair dismissal rising above £50,000 it really pays to protect your business. A simple insurance policy can do just that, ensuring you are covered against potential claims including:
  • unfair dismissal
  • discrimination on the grounds of disability, race, sex or sexual orientation
  • maternity or paternity leave
  • flexible working
  • discipline and grievance
  • age discrimination.
As specialist employment solicitors, Lawson-West have introduced a flexible Employment Protection Policy for employers to provide valuable financial protection against Employment Tribunal costs, awards of compensation and settlements. It also ensures you have legally compliant Contracts and Employee Handbooks that are tailored to your business needs for added security.

Flexible cover

When purchasing our Employment Protection Policy, you will be insured for up to £100,000 of legal and compensation costs, covering the vast majority of claims.

In addition, you have the choice of three affordable policy levels.
