Employer Protection Scheme

Simply the most effective way to protect your business from employment law issues and the unnecessary costs and disruption of employment claims.
Employment

Joining the Employer Protection Scheme gives you access to expert employment law advice whenever you need it, without having to worry about the cost. You will speak to a named employment solicitor who works with you on a regular basis, so they get to know your business and its HR needs.

Our scheme gives you access to four key services:

  • Unlimited employment law advice for a fixed annual fee (subject to a fair use policy)
  • Peace of mind employment claims insurance
  • An audit of your employment policies and procedures to check your documentation is compliant
  • Easy to use HR management software

You can read about these services below or get in touch with us to find out more.

Year-long employment law advice for a fixed fee

Early advice from a qualified solicitor can help you avoid or resolve concerns before they turn into legal disputes.

For a fixed annual fee, the Employer Protection Scheme gives you:

  • Answers to your queries through our telephone and email support service
  • Up-to-date employment policies and procedures

When you join the scheme, you have the option of receiving a comprehensive audit of your current employment practices and documentation. This will help us to direct you to the right resources and advice.

In addition, throughout the year you will have access to:

  • Regular free updates on employment law matters
  • Employment and HR management training at a preferential rate
  • High-calibre employment barristers
  • Strategic HR advice from solicitors who know and understand your business

We also offer a banked hours service, which you can use instead of or alongside the Employer Protection Scheme. This helps you to manage the costs of any significant ad hoc enquires or HR projects where you need more extensive employment law advice.

Employment claims insurance

Research shows that businesses are more likely to face an employment dispute than a serious fire or theft. In most cases, the legal cost for such disputes cannot be recovered, even if you are 100% successful in defending the claim.

Protect your business from costly tribunal claims with our recommended employment claims insurance. It is available to members registered for our Employer Protection Scheme even before we have completed their policies and processes audit.

An easy-to-use HR management system

Good HR software costs a little and saves a lot. It can dramatically reduce the amount of time your HR staff spend on employee administration, as well as helping you to meet your data protection obligations and to engage with your employees.

Our cloud-based software comes with full technical IT support and user training. It also provides you with the option to give access to your SA Law employment advisers, so we can review and update policies and documents with you as and when needed.
