Since 1 January 2023, the members of Loimu have enjoyed a significantly improved legal protection benefit. The legal protection benefit shall cover the costs of the legal proceedings of a member if, despite the efforts made in the negotiation, a dispute relating to the employment or service relationship of the member needs to be brought before a court.
The legal protection benefit is one of the key member benefits offered by the trade union, as such an advantage is not available anywhere else.
The legal protection benefit shall compensate the legal expenses of a member in the event of a dispute related to the employment or service relationship, if the dispute cannot be settled by negotiation. The benefit is better for the member the longer the person has been a member. The legal protection benefit starts to accrue immediately upon joining the membership, also for student members.
The primary means of resolving disputes related to employment and public service relationships is negotiation, and thus the majority of disputes are settled even before they go to court. In negotiations between the member and the employer, the member is assisted or represented by Loimu’s negotiation director. If no resolution is reached in the negotiations, the chances of the dispute succeeding in court will be assessed together with a law firm specialising in labour law. If it is decided to take the matter to court, the member’s case will be handled by a lawyer in a law firm specialising in labour law.
