This policy provides legal protection for proceedings under the Clergy Discipline Measure 2003. If you hold Common Tenure under the Ecclesiastical Offices (Terms of Service) Measure 2009, it also provides legal expenses cover in relation to any disputes, inquiries or grievances under this Measure. If you are a member of clergy in the Church in Wales it provides legal protection for the equivalent proceedings under the Church in Wales Constitution or the clergy handbook.
To ensure an expert service the cover under this policy has been arranged through DAS Legal Expenses Insurance Company Limited (DAS).
Up to £250,000 to cover costs and expenses to:
- Represent you in a disciplinary investigation of any complaint made against you under the Clergy Discipline Measure 2003 or the Church in Wales Constitution and clergy handbook
- Represent you in an unfair dismissal dispute following your removal from office following a capability assessment under the Ecclesiastical Offices (Terms of Service) Measure 2009 and regulations, or the Church in Wales Constitution and clergy handbook
In addition you have access to a range of telephone helplines.
This policy has been specifically designed for individual clergy members and this cover is not provided by our Church insurance products and is typically not provided under a household legal expenses policy.
The premium is £26.65 per year (plus Insurance Premium Tax). Please note terms and conditions apply.
