Insurance & Representation

Because no one can predict the future.

Legal protection for peace of mind.

We hope nothing ever goes wrong in your workplace, but if it does, and you’re faced with an employment-related claim, insurance with legal representation is included as part of the service.
Insurance is arranged on behalf of Gow-Gates Insurance Brokers Pty Ltd and underwritten by Specialist Underwriting Agencies (ABN 18 010 862 745 AFSL 231104) in conjunction with Berkley Insurance Australia (ABN 53 126 559 706 AFSL 463129). HR Assured cannot provide any insurance advice.

If you have followed HR advice from our Telephone Advisory Service and the advice provided results in a claim against you, the insurance policy may respond. It covers most employment-related claims including unfair dismissal, unlawful termination, bullying, discrimination, alleged underpayment of entitlements, as well as claims in breach of civil remedy provisions. The policy covers up to $2 million in any one year for damages, judgement, settlement, legal costs/expenses, defence costs and investigation costs.
No Excess.
There’s NO excess on the insurance policy and making a claim may not increase the cost of your insurance.
Legal Representation.
If a claim is made against you by an employee and escalates you will be represented by FCB Workplace Law. FCB Workplace Law is Australia’s leading workplace relations law firm and is, like us, part of FCB Group. FCB Workplace Law only practises in the area of workplace relations and has more Accredited Specialists in this area than any firm in Australia. The firm has been established for over 25 years and is equivalent to (or larger than) the entire workplace relations teams in most top-tier firms. This means that even if your matter becomes litigious it’ll be handled within the FCB Group, not transferred to a third-party legal services provider.
Quick, Convenient & Confidential.
Handling things in-house means the matter won’t be transferred to a law firm that knows nothing about you or your business. An unknown third party won’t access your confidential and commercially sensitive information. You won’t have to rehash the matter with a new advisor. With access to relevant documents, including your HRA Cloud employee records, TAS notes and call log, we can assess the matter, prepare briefs, gather evidence and take action in a fraction of the time taken by an external law firm: a matter of days to prepare everything we need, instead of weeks (or even months). And because HR Assured is part of the FCB Group, we’re there with you, in-touch with what’s going on, accountable and responsible for managing the matter with you, every step of the way.

It’s a safety net for you and your business.

We hope you’ll never need it. It’s there if you do.
