When an employer receives a tribunal claim from an employee, cost is always a concern. This is something that will affect businesses of all sizes but it is easy to see that dealing with this sort of claim can have a disastrous impact on many SMEs. At Davenport Solicitors, we know that businesses are looking to minimise their risk and potential for exposure as much as they can. This is why we would suggest businesses to invest in Employer’s Dispute Insurance.

Although we offer our services on a fixed fee basis, we also offer our clients Employer’s Dispute Insurance via an independent insurance company, so that they have the additional peace of mind that if in the unfortunate event, they receive a claim from an employee, they are protected.

We believe that having this insurance in place will enable your business to make the best decision based on their needs and the exact details of the claim as opposed to being concerned about the proposed costs of any claim.
