What is HR Protect?
Graham Vials introduces the key features and benefits of HR Protect for Schools.

Clear, commercial and practical advice

We will give you clear, commercial and practical advice. We will not sit on the fence or use confusing jargon. Our solicitors will take the time to understand you and your attitude to risk, and then provide you with tailored advice to meet your business’s needs.

Best practice resources at your fingertips 24/7

HR Protect clients have access to a huge pool of up-to-date and legally compliant downloadable policies, procedures, contracts, letters and company handbooks. With FAQs, videos, podcasts, webinars, explainers and how tos as well, it delivers a hugely valuable People team resource, helping to make your own team’s performance more consistent, as well as contributing to its L&D.

Opt to protect against the worst

In addition, you can choose to further protect your organisation with our Employment Tribunal insurance, covering up to £250,000 per claim for the costs of representation, settlement and Tribunal awards. Unlike many others, as long as you follow our advice, cover is guaranteed. There is no pre-assessment or conditional cover.
