A properly developed group legal insurance plan can be the perfect
complement to any employer?s work life initiative. Considering that many
employees are nowadays increasingly swayed by benefit options when making
career decisions, Legal insurance is a viable product for many employers.
However, there is no single fit-for-all group legal plan for all
organizations. For a start, each organization has a distinct list of
requirements when contracting for legal insurance. A requirement built on
the premise of reduced administrative costs will require a different set
of legal services than requirements built on enhancing a benefits package
or protect against liability.
Legal plans also vary in what they offer: the quality of their customer
service, flexibility of plan design and finally the experience and
professional track record of their panel of attorneys.
In order to minimize the risk of poor service and plummeting employer
satisfaction, an employer should conduct both requirements analysis
amongst its employee base to cover for their difference needs, and a due
research to select the most appropriate legal plan to fit those
requirements based on experience, integrity and track record.
