Employers often dont know they have free legal advice and representation

A recent survey showed that many employers who are used to shelling out a packet to lawyers are unaware of the fact that they are entitled to free legal advice and representation through their company insurance. However it is sometimes worth hiring a lawyer or HR pro who can give a 2nd opinion. I have known it for insurers to refuse a company support on the basis that they had no case of worth when the opposite was in fact true.

most policies have free legal advice and then also cover in the event of a claim. if disputed in terms of the merits you can ask for a second opinion by an independent solicitor barrister who is not on the panel firm solicitors, usually in line with the terms of the policy - also most of thses policies require referral to their advice linesbefore taking actions as a condition precedent to the cover.
