HR & Employment Advisory Product

MDDUS practice schemes can enjoy an enhanced HR and employment law support package that provides a number of benefits.

Legal support and representation

This includes payment of legal costs from our external partners who are leading UK employment law specialists with expertise in:

  • Complex grievances
  • Disciplinary issues where dismissal is a possible outcome
  • Mediation
  • Discrimination, harassment and bullying
  • Absence and capability issues, for example, where the employee may be considered disabled under the Equality Act 2010
  • Redundancy and restructuring
  • Settlement agreements
  • Employment tribunal complaints

Payment of employment tribunal awards

In cases where an employee is awarded financial compensation, following representation of a practice by our legal partners, the award will be met on the practice's behalf by MDDUS. This would provide members with a significant saving considering disability claimants have been awarded in excess of £200,000.

Note that all GP/GDPs employers within the group practice scheme must be a member of the MDDUS to qualify for this support.

Read our FAQs for more information and Part 6 of the Membership Agreement for full terms and conditions.

If your practice list size exceeds 22,500 please contact our membership services department on 0333 043 0000.
