Taking Legal Action Against an Employer – What You Need to Know
If you are concerned about taking legal action against a current or past employer, then please note that we treat every single client case with the utmost confidentiality.
When it comes to taking action against a business, they are all required by law to have insurance policies to protect them against work injury claims. They are also required to adhere to strict health and safety guidelines at all times.
That means that your employer will not be financially penalised by any compensation payouts, with any money coming to you being paid by the insurances company. That means you don’t have to worry about potentially damaging any relationships with the company you work for.
Also, UK legislation states that it’s illegal for an employer to be discriminatory against an employee who has made work accident claims against them. With that in mind, we hope that your mind is put a little bit more at ease in what can be a stressful time.
