Employer MOT

Since prevention is better than cure (and less costly too!), our Employer MOT will show whether your current working practices reflect best practice and identify any problem areas to ensure you are fully compliant with current legislation.

We’ll put in place any corrections or provide replacement documentation to ensure you’re fully compliant – all within your Emplus fixed annual fee!

Insurance protection

For additional peace of mind, our optional insurance cover gives you the comfort of knowing that your organisation is covered for legal costs and compensation payable from Employment Tribunal claims.

Subject to our insurer’s terms and conditions, you’re covered for up to £100,000 for any one claim, with up to £500,000 worth of cover in any one year.
