If you’re an SME, you may rely on your finance or office manager to handle your day-to-day HR administration. Or if you do have inhouse HR staff, you may find they value external support and guidance when tricky issues arise.

As the old saying goes, prevention is better than cure. That’s why we offer HR Enhance: a highly qualified, yet competitively priced outsourced HR function that will give your business the best possible protection against a court dispute with an employee.

There are three levels to HR Enhance to choose from, depending on the needs of your business:

  • Level 1: access to our HR support helpline
  • Level 2: access to our HR support helpline and employment disputes insurance

Employment disputes insurance to protect your business

Rather than getting caught out by the unbudgeted cost of an expensive employment tribunal case, employment disputes insurance is a simple, preventative solution.

Our insurance policy protects you against the cost of employment tribunals, legal fees, settlements and awards should your business face an employment dispute. You’ll have the flexibility to design your own bespoke policy tailored to your exact requirements and budget.

Here are just some of the benefits:

  • greater financial security
  • instant access to legal support and insurance protection when faced with ACAS conciliation disputes and employment tribunal claims
  • minimisation of your exposure to unexpected financial loss, capping all your employment litigation costs
    cover for any damages awarded by an employment tribunal
  • a sensible and commercial approach to claims – our insurance product will not pressure you to settle all and any claims
  • automatic access to us as your legal representative in the proceedings rather than an unknown ‘panel’ firm appointed by insurers

If a claim is made against you, we’ll work with you and our insurers to respond to the claim and handle employment tribunal and court representation all the way through to trial.

If you choose HR Enhance Level 3, your business will have access to our cloud-based HR software.
