For Your Business

Pickerings Employer Plus PEP

Could your business survive a costly Tribunal claim?

Last year the highest total award for unfair dismissal was £1,744,576. The largest award for disability discrimination was £302,258. These sums represent only the final payout - what is not shown is the cost, time and stress involved in defending employment claims.

Times are already tough for many employers, but the difficult economic climate coupled with employees’ increased awareness of their legal rights has resulted in a huge increase in the number of employment claims being submitted to the Employment Tribunal Service.

Thankfully, there is a way to protect your business against such claims, and it is surprisingly affordable!

We can provide your business with a complete and cost effective employment support, advice, and protection scheme - Pickerings PEP.

For one fixed monthly fee, we provide an annual audit of your key employment documents and update them where appropriate. You can call us for expert HR advice as and when you need it, which enables you to deal with employment issues swiftly and effectively.

Finally, should an employment tribunal claim occur, you have the financial protection of an insurance policy which will provide cover for legal costs and most awards and settlements.

Full details of the PEP scheme are in the PDF below.
