Unite is proud to represent members who work in the services industry. We protect a vital and growing set of workers including retail, hotel, hospitality, security, maintenance, cleaning and care home workers.
We are aware that as a service worker you can work long hours, and that your job may involve lifting heavy objects, working at height or using hazardous substances.
Slips, trips and falls can be common among workers in this sector as well as manual handling injuries and accidents involving lifting or falling objects. Service sector workers may also be susceptible to workplace illnesses such as contact dermatitis, caused by regular exposure to cleaning products, food and water.
It is your employer’s responsibility to protect your safety at work. If you have suffered an injury or illness at work, our experienced solicitors have extensive knowledge of the services sector and can provide expert advice and support.
Unite Legal Services can help if the unthinkable happens
In addition to accidents at work, as a Unite member you are also entitled to legal support and cover for road traffic accidents, brain and spinal injuries, clinical negligence and accidents away from work.
Non-working family members are protected if they have an accident on the roads or elsewhere.
Unite Legal Services will deal with your claim swiftly and professionally and you will receive 100% of your damages. There are no fees, no deductions and no surprise costs.
