We’ll pay your legal fees

If Prospect members get unfairly made redundant, fired, or discriminated against, we’ll pay their legal fees.

Discrimination in the workplace, unfair redundancies and dismissals still happen in the workplace. However, non union members often struggle to afford to take on their employer if they’re unfairly treated. If you become a member of Prospect, you won’t be one of those people.

Last year, we recovered millions of pounds for members in court cases, without them having to pay any money. Some cases saw individual members awarded tens of thousands of pounds.

A straightforward will is defined as one where personal assets (as opposed to business) are left to a spouse, partner, children, relative or friend.

Members can phone the solicitors on 0800 587 1278 or complete our online form to start the will application. Please note you will need your  membership number and branch name in order to complete this application form.
