How To Protect Yourself In Unemployment

Time Stamped Show Notes:

38s: Tom Hatley is a financial adviser at Christopher Little & Co in Otley. You have to have a diploma in regulated financial planning to be a financial adviser. Tom can also advise people who need long term care.

1min 50s: Why use you? We’re the best! We give honest, clear advice to our clients and we also give a free consultation. Tom has spent 7 years in this job and 3 years previously as a paraplanner.

2min 33s: How can you protect your clients from unemployment? We get to know the client first and then advise on insurances such as unemployment cover.

3min 27s: Who is the cover relevant to? Usually only to employees, they are stricter on self-employed people, you can’t make yourself redundant.

3mins 55s: Would you recommend the cover from day 1? You can take it out on day 1 if you have the budget available though you might not be eligible as you sometimes have to have been employed by your employer for 6 months first.

4mins 45s: Can you claim on the insurance if you have stolen from your employer? If you have contributed to your dismissal then no. You have to have been made redundant through no fault of your own.

5mins 9s: Why haven’t I heard of unemployment insurance? There aren’t many insurance providers who offer it and also it isn’t cheap. It depends but it can be around £50 per month.

6mins 54s: Do they pay out? There aren’t usually any problems as long as you are clear and honest.

7mins 36s: How quickly do they pay out? There is a form to complete and you need to understand the deferred claim period e.g. if it’s 3 months of redundancy then you should complete the form in the second month and you would receive the cheque by the fourth month.

9mins 14s: What if you have started a new job – would the insurance pay? If you are earning the same or higher then they won’t pay out but if it is lower you might get a partial payment.

10mins 5s: Are premiums low with the current circumstances? They are likely to be lower at the moment because of the circumstances but there are also more insurance providers leaving at the moment which could lead to higher premiums.

We’re not like
other law firms

Ethically driven

Truth Legal was founded on the idea of putting ethics at the centre of legal services. 

Ethical working is at our core: in treating people fairly, being open and honest, and taking social responsibility. We sponsor a large section of woodland near Harrogate, planting a tree for every one of the clients we represent.

Real lawyers, real people

We believe a good lawyer shouldn’t just offer technical expertise, but a real understanding of what you’re going through and how best to help you. 

Above all, our team are dedicated to their clients – whether that is guiding them through legal complexities, securing compensation, or simply fighting for what’s right.

We won’t blind you with jargon – we give advice clearly. And when technical terms can’t be avoided we explain them in full.

Exceptional service

In contrast to some firms, we don’t overload our lawyers with cases. Our team provide clients with a more personal service, meaning we can dedicate the proper time to your matter.

Just read our client reviews to see what a difference this can make.
