Employment Practices Liability Insurance

Good employment practices will reduce the risk of disputes. They will also ensure that if disputes do arise they can be robustly defended. Prevention is definitely better than cure. 

However, even with all the correct documentation and best employment practices, if an employee or ex-employee is determined to make a claim against you, you cannot prevent this. Even if it is without merit and/or spurious. 

This is why many employers choose to have additional insurance in place.

Practical HR have therefore teamed up with AXA Insurance and Evans Insurance Brokers to provide a comprehensive and affordable Employment Practices Liability Insurance for our Clients.

Benefits of the Insurance

  • Protect yourself and the business for less than £30.00 per month 
  • The excess of £3,750.00 is waived where you have sought and followed our advice in any case
  • You can pay for the insurance over 12 months by Direct Debit (interest free)
  • If there is a claim, Practical HR are able to act for you (rather than being passed over to the panel solicitors).
