Tribunal Protection Insurance

With the recent changes to the scrapping of fees in Tribunal matters, the distraction of increasingly complex and costly employment legislation directly affecting the profitability of many businesses across the UK, it could be time to look at how our expertise and service can allow you to focus on what you do best.

Organisations turn to us not only because they are facing more frequent employment disputes that are of a greater cost but also because the insurance or HR advisors they have encountered are failing them.  Unregulated and unqualified advisors in call centres and cleverly constructed insurance get out clauses are often leaving clients exposed, confused and unprotected.

To help employers deal with these problems Attenborough Law offers a better and different Employment Tribunal Protection Scheme for our clients.

How Our Scheme Works

All services are carried out by one of our three regulated and qualified solicitors.   The scheme is comprised of 3 core components that have been designed to offer seamless financial and business continuity protection:-

The Audit (Health Check) - your current policies and practices will be reviewed in order for us to get to know your business and establish how to bring you up to date and in line with the latest legislation and achieve compliance within the law.

Expert Advice (On-Going Support and Dialogue) – Direct access to telephone advice by a qualified employment law solicitor, who knows your business and understands your specific needs meaning you don’t have to deal with often vague and impersonal call centres. You are given clear advice that is in the best interest of your business. This not only ensures that the matter is properly handled from the outset but also ensures that you are covered by the principles of legal privilege and most importantly, fully insured when you follow the advice given.

Insurance Policy (Financial Security) – We have delegated claims management responsibility and as such are fully authorised to approve and manage your claim with the insurers from the outset. The policy fits with our services seamlessly and pays the legal costs of an employment dispute, covers settlements and the cost of awards. This radically minimises your exposure to unexpected financial loss, and caps all your Employment and HR costs providing peace of mind. In real terms this will often result in huge cost savings.  * Full details of the cover is available upon request

How Our Scheme Is Unique
Our scheme is operated by dedicated professionals who understand our client’s specific needs (not a call centre providing rigid/fixed advice in order to limit the risk to Underwriters).

  • If necessary we will attend your premises.
  • We deliver "hands on" practical and commercial solutions to problems, and will advise you how to avoid future claims arising. 
  • We enable you to budget for and cap all your Employment costs.
  • We seamlessly handle claims in your best interests through special arrangements with insurers.

Saving you time and money over the long term is not the only benefit:

Financial Certainty - You can set a budget for employment law costs, knowing that there will be no unexpected pay-outs just a fixed cost to protect your balance sheet.  In the last year the average time spent getting a matter to full hearing was 173 hours at an average cost of £35,000 even where we were entirely successful in representing and defending an Employer.

Cash-Flow Friendly - Spread the cost of the insurance and employment law and Health and Safety services by instalments through a monthly or quarterly payment facility.

Flexible and Suitable - You decide on the best price and insurance cover options to suit your needs as the package can be tailored around your exact requirements.

Face to Face - No call centres or restrictive, confusing advice. You can be fully confident when dealing with staffing issues because one of our 3 professional and fully qualified solicitors is just a phone call away.

Regulated Expert Advice - We are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and are required to act in your best interests. We are also required to be insured for our own advice to you, therefore by using the services of an employment law solicitor you will benefit from up to £3,000,000 worth of cover (whether such liability arises by reason of breach of contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise or, if greater, the minimum level of insurance cover the firm is obliged to maintain pursuant to the Solicitors' Indemnity Insurance Rules from time to time.

Legal Privilege - As solicitors our advice is privileged which means that it never has to be disclosed and is entirely confidential unlike advice given by HR/Professionals and Consultants whose advice is NOT legally privileged and may have to be disclosed during the Tribunal process.

Proactive - We will tackle employment conflicts before they arise and receive clear advice on the possible consequences of business decisions relating to your employees, or where you may breach insurance cover before you act.

Focus on Profitability. No more wasted management time – we will get you compliant and handle any employment disputes and claims on your behalf with insurers.
