Insure your Business/employment tribunal claims

In the current economic climate we are finding that more and more dismissed or disgruntled employees are bringing Tribunal claims against their employer or former employer notwithstanding the merits of their claims.  If a claim succeeds against your business it can bring disastrous consequences.  For example the compensatory award element of an unfair dismissal claim will rise to a maximum of £72,300 in February – how could your business cope if it faced such an award?

To help safeguard your business we can effectively insure your business against Employment Tribunal claims and the insurance also covers the payment of your own legal costs!  The premium depends on a number of factors but mainly your annual wage roll.  The premiums can be as little as £159 per annum, which equates to £3.06 per week.  To help with cash flow, the premium can be paid in twelve equal monthly instalments with no additional charge.

Daven Naghen, head of our Employment Team commented as follows:-

“This is a fantastic product for our clients and we already have a number of clients who enjoy the benefit of it.  I can offer you a free no obligation quotation so you can decide if it is right for your business.”

Our clients also think the product is excellent, for example Susan Kennedy, Managing Director of S K Cleaning Limited has enjoyed the benefit of the insurance (called Employment Guard) for nearly two years and says “My only regret is that I did not take up the Employment Guard Scheme earlier as this would have saved me years of worry, but at least now I have total piece of mind knowing that I have the scheme in place”.

If you want to discuss the possibility of your business getting insurance cover against Employment Tribunal claims, then please contact Dave Naghen on 01775 722261 or email Daven on or contact him at 23 New Road, Spalding, Lincolnshire PE11 1DH.

Gemma Mayer LLB

"I would highly recommend Maples Solicitors, especially Gemma Mayer, for any conveyancing work. The level of support and professionalism was excellent at all times. I also felt if I needed to ask or clarify anything that it was not an issue. Buying and selling a house is stressful enough, but Gemma helped me through it step by step."

Anita Toal LLB BA

"I think you are brilliant. You can use my comments above. You are efficient, friendly and quite clearly very good at what you do. Mainly you don’t leave people hanging around too long for." "So easy to talk to her and she understood what I wanted. She put me at ease and I cant thank her enough"

Faye was excellent, sensitive and acted very well to the time constraints we faced. Great service and dealt with compassion at such sad times made the process less painful very professional.

Jamie Dobbs ACILEx

Over the last forty years I have cause to deal with many law firms both in a personal and professional capacity, including some ‘top’ London Companies. In all of those dealings I have never found anyone as proactive and so willing to offer help and advice as Jamie Dobbs. During the last two years Jamie guided my parents through the completion of Lasting Powers of Attorney. Helped myself with the use of the LPA and recently dealing with Probate and Estate Administration following their death.

Mike Pepper MA

This is the second time we have used Mike Pepper at Maples Solicitors in the sale of our house. We cannot praise Mike enough for the highly efficient and professional service that he has provided us with. He is by far the best solicitor we have ever worked with, and the service that he has provided us with has gone far and beyond anything we have ever experienced. We have found the whole process to be a very relaxing experience.

Claire Smith FCILEx

Claire Smith has been amazing in every way. I highly recommend her and I am so grateful for all her help. She’s professional on all levels, reliable, extremely organised and I will be recommending her to everyone. I’m very lucky to have had her representing me and I can’t thank her enough. She is an asset to Maples. Thanks so much Claire!

Anita Zaborniak

We found it a pleasure to deal with Anita Zaborniak, she was most helpful and informative and kept us up to date with the progress of the purchase of our new home. If we were to move again we wouldn’t hesitate to use Maples again.
