Employment Tribunal Protection Insurance

Employment Tribunal Protection Insurance covers the legal costs of defending your business against an Employment Tribunal claim.
Like with any type of insurance, you hope you never need it, but when you do you are definitely glad you have it!

Typically, a business will spend up to approximately £8,000 in legal costs defending an unfair dismissal claim against them in the Employment Tribunal, and possibly more in defending more complex cases, such as discrimination claims.

In most instances, you cannot claim these legal costs back from the other side, even if you successfully defend against the claim. In addition, if you unsuccessfully defend the claim, you are likely to have to pay out thousands of pounds in compensation to your ex-employee. Just like house or auto insurance, by paying an insurance premium for Employment Tribunal Protection Insurance, these costs are all covered in the event of a claim.

**Please note: Employment Tribunal Protection Insurance is provided by a third party that we feel meets our high service standards. Hopkins passes this cost on directly to you without any mark-up and does not receive any referral fee.
