Employment Practice Liability Insurance

LBProtect-ED

It’s a fact of commercial life that claims and investigations are becoming increasingly common, and even winning a legal case can carry a very high price – in terms of costs. This applies as much in the education sector as elsewhere.

In association with AXA, we offer LBProtect-Ed: a management liability policy which is specifically adapted for the education sector. It offers comprehensive cover at a reasonable price – with no excess where our education legal advice is followed in relation to the matter giving rise to a claim. Click here for details of LBAdvise-Ed service. Importantly, there is no ‘prospect of success’ clause in the policy – so even if our advice is not obtained or followed, the policy can still pay out.
