• Brachers Protect is an employment support package which reduces your exposure to unexpected financial loss if you are forced to defend an employment tribunal claim.

    The comprehensive package includes:

    • Insurance to cover legal costs, compensation awards and settlements in employment tribunal claims
    • An audit of your employment contracts, policies and procedures to ensure they are legally compliant
    • An advice helpline

    Why would I need insurance?

    Employment Tribunal claims are likely to increase further in the coming years. Facing a claim will cost you in terms of financial spend and management resources, even if you are ultimately successful in defending it.

    The commercial realities of paying legal costs as a claim progresses may lead you to settle otherwise weak claims, with the risk of encouraging others to follow suit.

    Peace of mind with Brachers Protect

    The biggest benefit to your business? Peace of mind. Having reliable insurance indemnity protection against employment tribunal claims ensures that your exposure to unexpected financial loss is reduced if you are taken to a tribunal. You will be covered for:

    • Your legal costs, compensation awards or settlements for most employment law claims in the Employment Tribunal
    • Your legal fees and agreed settlement amounts arising out of the mandatory period of ACAS pre-claim conciliation
    • Your legal costs in pursuing the enforcement of restrictive covenants and obtaining injunctive relief
