WHAT INFORMATION YOU WILL FIND
Under Business Services you will find documents referring to the processes, directions & mechanisms under which TASC is directed.
TASC is a member of the National Association of Community Legal Centres (NACLC) Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) Scheme.
The Policy covers claims by employees, including volunteers, arising out of legal advice or services provided to the employee/volunteer by the Insured.
Cover has recently been extended to include situations where one Community Legal Centre provides advice or assistance to another Community Legal Centre. Accordingly, where a claim arises in circumstances where legal advice or assistance was provided to employees/volunteers of TASC or to other CLCs, it would fall within the professional indemnity cover provided by the Policy, subject to the terms and conditions of the Policy.
The NACLC Risk Management Guide continues to apply to CLCs for the provision of all professional services, irrespective of the identity of the client.
