Our scheme’s Legal Expenses insurance provides cover against the legal costs incurred in
pursuing or defending a legal action taken or brought against a member.
Areas covered under the policy include:
- Data Protection
- Statutory Licence
- Personal Injury
Our members also have the benefit of a Legal Expenses helpline, which can offer guidance and
assist in ensuring that any action taken does not leave members open to a claim.
Legal Expenses policies have very strict notification conditions;
if you believe that you may need
to make a claim under the legal expenses policy please contact us as soon
as possible. Ideally this should be before you have taken action which may result in a claim, such as the
dismissal of an employee.
In recognition of the increasing amount of legislation and regulation to which our members are
subject and the fact that members often require advice to help prevent situations from becoming
litigious, our in-house solicitor, Kathy Perrin, also offers legal advice to our members on a
range of matters, details of which can be found on the Legal Advice
page under the Services
