Employers can be held liable for claims made by employees alleging discrimination based on sex, race, age or disability, as well as wrongful termination, harassment and other employment-related issues.

A breach of employment law can have a huge financial and reputational impact on a business. The number of lawsuits taken against employers is increasing rapidly and the cost of defending them could destroy a business, even if the business successfully defends the lawsuit.

Cover can extend to the company and subsidiaries, any employee, director or manager while in a professional capacity and even the spouse or partner of an employee, director or officer.

Claims Examples

  • Repeated comments made by a manager in a morning meeting resulted in a payment of more than £100,000 to three former employees alleging sexual harassment.
  • An invited guest of a summer associate to a picnic was subjected to derogatory remarks by an alcohol-fuelled partner while other partners stood by idle. The harassment and emotional distress claim resulted in a large pay-out being made.
