MooreSure employment claims protection
Employment – a risky business
Statistics published by the Ministry of Justice at the end of 2020 recorded a 25% increase in employment tribunal claims brought by individuals compared to a year ago.
Unfortunately, employers are needing to take action in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in terms of dismissals and changes to working conditions that is placing them at increased risk of litigation.
What is MooreSure employment claims protection?
Moore Barlow has developed MooreSure insurance cover that can be adapted to your business needs. MooreSure provides a practical and cost-effective way to manage future risk of employment claims from workers with our flexible insurance cover.
Clients receiving advice from the our employment solicitors are able to take out cover to protect against their legal costs and settlement, compensation or damages awards against them arising from a dispute with a worker.

Flexibility tailored to the needs of your business
MooreSure is tailor-made to the size of your business, your internal HR resource and your staffing requirements.
We will work with you to identify which level of cover best suits your business. We can structure the policy to suit your needs and premium requirements.
Some of the most common choices are as follows:
- You may only want cover for your legal fees.
- You may want cover for awards and settlements but choose to cover your own representation costs.
- Policy excesses can be tailored, along with indemnity limits and level of cover on a bespoke basis.
- Disputes in respect of directors can be excluded in order to reduce premium levels if clients do not perceive this to be an exposure.

Your cover will include Employment Tribunal claims brought against you for:
- unfair and wrongful dismissal;
- constructive dismissal;
- breach of contract;
- redundancy claims;
- trade union disputes;
You may also choose to cover:

Chambers & Partners
A personable and at the same time (totally) professional service is provided by Moore Barlow and is one of its key strengths as a business. The team are always available to provide counsel and advice when requested and their turnaround times in completing instructed work is excellent.
Moore Barlow has a breadth of talent and experience which belies their regional location and unquestionably allows them to compete in the busy London & South East legal fraternity. The strong specialist teams have reputations which attract and retain clients across the UK and internationally. My experience is wholly positive having benefitted from a wealth of experience and clear commercial and legal guidance.
I chose Moore Barlow because I wanted the support of a strong, broadly based local firm, with strong commercial and employment knowledge and experience but at regional hourly rates rather than London rates.
Moore Barlow provides the complete professional organisation in terms of HR advice and all other disciplines both in terms of business and personal matters. There fee structures are acceptable for the quality of service which is provided in a friendly manner.
The team we worked with took charge of every detail with an entrepreneurial spirit and commitment. When working with international companies it is essential to know how to share information with respect to the reference country, and this too was done with great pragmatism. The creativity of the solutions and the flexibility in applying them was certainly an added value.
