Arc Legal Assistance, the specialist provider of legal costs insurance, has launched its first standalone employment protection insurance (EPI) product.

The new policy is aimed at small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) employers and is in response to a raft of new legislation designed to protect employees.

HR Insight will be the first client to sell the product, under a delegated authority to agreed limits for the underwriting of an individual client’s risk, whilst also handling policy fulfilment and administration.

The firm offers human resource consultancy and provides practical advice in all aspects of employment and employment law to SMEs.

Arc has also developed a new claims process that will enable HR Insight to handle claims directly. This should provide a fast and effective service to clients.

Heather Matheson, managing director of HR Insight, said: “SMEs face more and more issues from increasingly stringent employment law and practices. Being able to offer up to date advice and information is important but offering comprehensive legal cover together with an efficient claims service is invaluable.”
