Chamber Legal Expenses Cover
Can Your Business Afford To Pay The Penalties?
Any business fortunate enough not to have been embroiled in a legal dispute can count themselves very lucky. It is absolutely vital to have the correct procedures in place. Would you know what to do if an employee took you to a tribunal and the correct steps to take? If not, there could be a massive financial impact on your business.
As well as having to handle employment related disputes, one in ten businesses will be subject to an Inland Revenue Investigation each year, requiring professional legal assistance. With Chamber Legal Services you have access to a helpline 24/7 and are also covered for the work required if your business is being investigated.
