There has been so much in the news lately about different abuse scandals and news reports on dubious activity in the world of heatre and cinema. All the well known names we have got used to following are coming out of the woodwork either accusing someone or defending themselves against accusers. All these cases will eventually sort themselves out with very expensive court cases – attended by the world’s most expensive legal teams no doubt.
For the rest of us there is the recourse to court action only if we have a secure financial backing or insurance that covers whatever our claim may be about. For example, if an employment law claim for a discrimination is entered in a tribunal, the first question to the claimant should be – have you household insurance that offers legal cover. This will then help to find the right legal team and fund the vast majority of any claim.
