Running a small business can bring great satisfaction and reward, but it also brings worries. There are the clients, possibly suppliers and employees, plus a whole range of other interactions and arrangements that all come together to make your business unique – and operational. The problem with all of these hourly, daily, weekly encounters is that they bring the potential for disagreement or dissatisfaction and possibly a costly and stressful legal dispute. And that’s the last thing you need when you’re putting everything you have into making your business a success.
The high cost of legal advice, coupled with increasingly complex and changing employment legislation, means few companies have the resources or expertise to defend themselves against legal action.
Employees are increasingly aware of their rights and, encouraged by several high-profile cases and increasing media coverage, are more likely to take action if they lose their job or consider they have been discriminated against.
At ACS we can offer comprehensive Commercial Legal Expenses Insurance to cover for the main areas where legal disputes may arise.
Standard cover includes employment disputes & compensation awards, legal defence, property protection, bodily injury and tax protection. In addition, optional covers include statutory licence appeal, contract disputes and debt recovery.
