Need Legal support for COVID-19? Access Law Hub now

In light of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic our legal experts at Markel Law have been working hard to identify the resources Markel UK’s business partners and customers need to run and safeguard their business during this period of uncertainty.

That’s why we’ve made it possible for all of our business partners and policyholders to access our dedicated SME legal portal, Law Hub, for legal and business guides to help navigate this uncertain time.

The Law Hub has built its reputation on providing practical DIY templates and guidance to businesses, with instant access to information and documents.  In response to COVID-19, we have built a dedicated area within the Law Hub. 

Markel UK business partners and customers can now instantly access a number of COVID-19-specific guides and legal documents to help navigate through this challenging period.  

Guides on Coronavirus within the Law Hub include:
  • Coronavirus guidance for employers 
  • Furlough leave 
  • Alternative employment in a redundancy situation
  • Collective consultation on redundancy
  • Considering alternatives to redundancy
  • Coronavirus Business Interruption Insurance
  • Coronavirus contract issues
  • Coronavirus Financial Support for the Self-Employed
  • Coronavirus Useful Links
  • Dismissing short-serving employees
  • Employment law issues during a pandemic virus
  • Holidays
  • Insolvency of an employer
  • Lay-offs, short time working and guarantee payments
DIY Legal Documents include:
  • First Redundancy Consultation Letter
  • Letter seeking agreement to a lay-off or short-time working
  • Letter to staff about the Coronavirus job retention scheme (Furlough)
We have seen a huge spike in downloads of our guide and documents over the past few weeks. In fact, 72% of Law Hub’s traffic has been to its dedicated COVID-19 page. We would therefore encourage all Markel UK business partners and customers to log on regularly to ensure they are referring and utilising the most recent documents published.

If you do not currently have access to the Law Hub, all Markel UK business partners and customers can now receive three months of free access to the Law Hub to help during this time.  To activate your membership please email:
