CLAIMS CORNER

The following claims example demonstrates the benefits of our Employment Disputes cover available under a Family Legal Expenses Insurance policy.

The policyholder was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes which caused behavioural issues when her blood sugar levels were low. These issues resulted in her colleagues lodging complaints about her behaviour whilst at work.

While her employers were aware of her condition, they failed to make reasonable adjustments for the policyholder, and eventually dismissed her because of her resulting behaviour from the illness.

The policyholder was adamant that she had been discriminated against because of her illness and submitted a claim to Arc Legal, who agreed to cover the claim. Eventually, the employers offered the claimant a settlement offer of £150,000, which she accepted.

Total legal costs for the case were £10,000 – a significant cost that demonstrates the value of a Legal Expenses Insurance policy.
