Often, people don’t even realise that they might have legal expenses insurance.
Certain insurance policies (e.g., home insurance) include cover for legal expenses relating to employment law matters. Although policies can vary, this type of insurance will generally cover the legal fees incurred for bringing a claim in an Employment Tribunal. As a result, you would not need to pay any legal costs and you may get to keep 100% of any damages awarded.
You should check all your insurance policies to see if they provide this type of cover. You can do this by going through your policy documents. It is also a good idea to contact your insurer and ask whether your legal expenses insurance covers employment law claims.
