About Employment Law Extra
Employment Law Extra provides high quality, low cost employment law advice and protection packages to UK businesses with up to 20 employees. We aim to provide trustworthy, practical guidance to small businesses on every area of employment law.
This is what our research told us
Our extensive research highlighted the need for a regularly updated online employment law service designed especially for the needs of small businesses. Many business people we spoke to are worried about the effect of increasing amounts of employment law legislation, and want practical, trustworthy guidance on what to do.
We also heard from many businesses worried about the financial effects of employment tribunals, especially during a recession.
And here’s what we did next
Having listened to these worries and concerns, we developed two specialist products to address these needs - Smart 100 and Smart 200 (coming soon).
Expert advice for all our customers
Anyone buying Smart 100 or Smart 200 gets a practical, 24/7 online employment law Advice Manual that covers all aspects of employment law. All the content is written and updated in plain English by qualified employment lawyers.
Your Advice Manual is backed up by a legal helpline that’s available 24/7.
Better safe than sorry
Smart 200 customers get the added benefits of expert legal expenses insurance that covers the cost of legal representation at any employment tribunal hearing, along with compensation negotiated or awarded up to £100,000 per claim (subject to the policy’s Terms and Conditions).
Our experience and expertise
The Employment Law Extra team has significant experience in the packaged employment law market. We were instrumental in establishing the concept of insurance backed employment law advice when it was first introduced in the 1970s.
We don’t tie you in for years (unlike our competitors)
Smart 100 gives you access to the online employment law Advice Manual and legal helpline for 12 months.
With Smart 200 you get access to the online employment law Advice Manual and legal helpline for 12 months, and you’ll also be covered by the insurance for the same period.
So unlike some of our competitors, we don’t try and tie you in for years. (Although we do hope you’ll keep using us.)
