“Massive plus for FMB members. If you have never been in a court situation you would not know the value of this cover.”
“This insurance is a real benefit for all members, especially the debt recovery. Even when you do a fantastic job customers often try to avoid that final payment.”
AREAS OF COVER
- Employment disputes & compensation awards
- Tax protection
- FMB adjudication and enforcement
- Property protection
- Bodily injury
- Debt recovery
- Statutory licence protection
- Legal defence.
And new for 2011/2012, motor prosecution cover and adjudicator expense indemnity.
The first three areas (highlighted above) are the three most widely used aspects of the DAS cover. The continuing recession is contributing to an increasing number of claims, and DAS has seen a corresponding demand for these parts of its product.
OTHER DAS RESOURCES
- On-line employment manual
- DAS business law web facility
- Business assistance helpline
- Counselling helpline
- ‘Pay as you go’ document drafting.
Builders are facing more legal issues than ever before as clients and employees become increasingly aware of their legal rights. Legislation is changing all the time making it difficult for businesses to keep up with all the requirements. The current economic climate has added to this, with more debt-related problems and a rising number of employment disputes.
