An Employer Protection Scheme is a type of employment protection legislation. Uses for employment protection legislation can include court rulings, hiring concerns and contract conditions. An Employer Protection Scheme enables your solicitor team to look out for your company while you focus on running your business.
What you should look for
When looking for the right solicitor company to provide your protection scheme, you should look for someone who can offer a complete package at a competitive rate, who has an experienced team that can cater to your business needs.
You’ll benefit from fully trained solicitors who are on hand during the working week to assist you should anything come up and answer any questions about employment law that you may have. Your team should be specialists in this field, who can quickly get to know you and your business and advise you on the best way to deal with any situations. They will constantly brief you on any new legislation and keep your company fully compliant whenever new laws come into place.
Services that are offered
Solicitors that offer Employer Protection Schemes will always provide full representation services should you face any employment tribunal claims. Their services should be backed by good insurance, which will cover your legal costs and any compensation that may be awarded to the other party.
As mentioned above, the solicitor team should be available to offer weekday advice over the phone, Monday to Friday, which will reduce any risk of employment tribunal claims that happen during the working week.
You should also look for a company that can offer up-to-date legal help and advice on employment procedures and human resource (HR) issues. A successful team of solicitors will have no issues giving you the advice that you need, when you need it.
The scheme for you
It can be difficult to find the right scheme to fit you and your business. You’ll need direct access to a solicitor who can provide related business advice for you, while offering a competitive price (possibly with various payment plans available, like a monthly subscription, for example), and insurance to back any issues or claims.
The aim of the Employer Protection Scheme is to ensure that you don’t end up out of pocket due to misleading information, or any court cases that could have easily been avoided. Your solicitors are there to catch these cases or employment law violations before you make them, saving your company’s money and reputation.
Your business will only ever benefit from an Employer Protection Scheme. Your new team of solicitors will be able to provide you with a comprehensive review of all employee documentation. These include employee contracts, policies and procedures, and any changes to employment law. They can help you with better financial planning, which will reduce the amount of time that you have to spend reviewing documents or handling cases, and instead, you can focus on the day to day running of your company.
With an Employer Protection Scheme, you’ll be able to rest easy, and have peace of mind, knowing that your company is being looked out for.
