24/7 Legal Cover 
Every driver’s worst nightmare is to be involved in a blue light incident. Even though a small risk, it means you can be at your most vulnerable when you are asked to give a statement to the police and potentially give inaccurate information which can have major consequences. So, we are providing 24/7 legal roadside support should you be involved in an accident, so that you are able to access legal experts who can ensure appropriate procedures which protect you, as well as advise you and represent you from the moment a collision happens. It means you will never be in a situation where you will be dealing with it alone. In practise how does that work?………If you are involved in a blue light, police attended serious collision whilst on shift for Employ you will have a number you can call 24/7, 7 days a week where you will be connected immediately to a solicitor who specialises in transport law. A solicitor will then attend the scene and represent you from the roadside right through to police interview, ensuring you have the best and most appropriate representation from the moment a collision occurs. Full details along with the number to call is available on our app now. We encourage all drivers to read and to make note of the number. 

We’ve got you covered!

I am aware that I have been auto enrolled into Employ Benefits. I therefore authorise that Employ Recruitment LTD deducts a weekly sum which will be £1 per shift from my remuneration for my subscription to the Employ Benefits to enable me to have access to take advantage of its benefits.
