Many people who need legal help do not seek it-in part, because they fear the cost and don't know how to find the right attorney.1 For employees, not having the help they need to navigate through situations that may require legal assistance-buying a home, creating a will, or defending a civil litigation matter-can result in reduced productivity at work.
Group voluntary legal services can be a smart, simple and affordable way to help your employees be more financially prepared and protected. Additionally, it can help employers achieve their objectives of increasing productivity and attracting and retaining employees.
