What is JM Pathway?

With the distraction of increasingly complex and costly employment legislation directly affecting the profitability of many businesses across Northern Ireland it could be time to look at how our expertise at John McKee Solicitors can allow you to focus on what you do best.

Organisations turn to us not only because they are facing more frequent employment issues which are of a greater cost but also because they want sound and practical advice from regulated and  legally qualified advisers back by an insurance policy which will not leave them confused and exposed when most in need. To assist employers deal with these problems we have launched a dedicated Employment Law Protection Scheme for our clients called JM Pathway.

Our Scheme will be tailored to specifically suit your Organisation, whilst giving you the clear expert advice that you require without the concern of skyrocketing costs.



How It Works

JM Pathway operates just for your business needs in 3 strategic processes:

1. The Audit (Health Check) 

Your current policies and practices will be reviewed in order for us to get to know your business and establish how to bring you up to date with the latest legislation and achieve compliance within the law .

2.   Expert Advice (Ongoing Support & Dialogue)

Direct access to unlimited advice by a qualified employment law solicitor, who knows your business and understands your specific needs, no call centre. You will be given clear advice that is in the best interest of your business.   This not only ensures that the matter is properly handled from the outset but also ensures that you are fully insured when you follow the advice given.  

3.  Insurance Policy (Financial Security)

We are fully authorised to manage your claim by insurers.  The policy fits with our services seamlessly and pays the legal costs of an employment dispute, covers settlements and the cost of awards.  This radically minimises your exposure to unexpected financial loss, and caps all your Employment and HR costs providing peace of mind and significant costs savings.


Why Is it Different?

  • If necessary we will attend your premises
  • We deliver a hand on practical solution to problems, and will advise you how to avoid future claims arising.
  • We enable you to budget for and cap all your Employment costs
  • We seamlessly handle claims in your best interest through special arrangements with insurers
