We’ll pay your legal fees

If Bectu 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 Bectu, 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.
