If you were faced with a legal problem today...
What would you do? Who would you call? Could you afford the cost of a Lawyer?
Today many apprentices and trainees are faced with increasing legal issues and the burden of how to effectively deal with them. Most struggle, simply to understand the law as it may apply to them on a day to day basis , let alone deal with its impact or the costs associated with trying to do so. Apprentices and trainees do not perform well when confronted with legal problems. They suffer anxiety, frustration and in some cases even depression. This effects their ability to perform and to focus on and maintain their studies and in a lot of cases their capacity to work within their apprenticeship or traineeship.
Apprentices and trainees on average have a requirement two to three times a year for some form of legal assistance. With one in ten experiencing some form of major legal issue within a twelve month period. The most common of these being:
> Property related - tenancy and landlord issues
> Motor vehicle and drivers licence offences
> Employment/workplace relations matters
> Personal injury and property damage
> Consumer fraud
> Debt related matters
> Burglary and theft
> Alcohol and drug related matters
One of the first steps in protecting your rights as an apprentice or a trainee is to have an accurate knowledge and understanding of the law. One of the greatest benefits of having an Apprentice/Trainee Legal Plan membership for any apprentice or trainee is the ability to be able to seek legal advice early, rather than put off doing so until the problem becomes more involved and as a result more costly.
Legal risk is growing. It is no longer a question of " if " , but of " when " and at what cost. Apprentices and trainees today need to be able to access legal assistance and support at a cost they can afford without feeling intimidated or unsure of how or where to begin. Now there is a solution... It is an Apprentice/Trainee Legal Plan membership.
