Helping employees protect what matters most – a new benefit from Epoq

child-drawing-2Epoq has announced the launch of its newly developed online legal service, Legal for Life, as a high-value and flexible employee benefit.

Designed to serve a multi-generational workforce, Legal for Life empowers employees with the knowledge and tools they need to deal easily with many of the legal issues they will face during their lives, from making a will or power of attorney, to disputing a parking fine or claiming compensation for a flight delay.

Legal for Life offers flexible service levels and commercial models, so it can be tailored to suit the requirements of both employers and their employees. It is also much more comprehensive than traditional legal benefits, such as advice lines that are currently available through employee benefit schemes. The service includes online access to hundreds of professionally-drafted customisable legal documents, jargon-free guides to consumer laws and regulations and a team of qualified in-house lawyers for expert legal advice over the phone 24 hours a day.

For employers, Legal for Life will complement and enhance existing benefits, such as life and health insurance, and aid stronger employee engagement by helping employees protect their interests and those of their family at key points in their lives.

And, as Legal for Life is delivered online and over the phone, employees can deal with their legal matters without the inconvenience of having to visit a law firm. It can also save them hundreds of pounds in legal fees compared to dealing with a solicitor.

Andrew Walker, Commercial Director at Epoq, said: “Most people will have a number of legal needs throughout their life; but many shy away from using traditional legal service providers for fear of the cost and complexity of doing so. At the same time, employers are looking for more relevant and effective ways to engage with a multi-generational workforce in order to recruit, retain and motivate high-performing employees.

“Legal for Life addresses these needs by giving employees easy access to an expert legal service, while enabling employers to create more tailored, engaging and cost-effective benefits for their workforce.”

Epoq will be showcasing Legal for Life on Stand 234 at Employee Benefits Live 16, Olympia on October 11 – 12, 2016.
