The National Education Union (NEU) has an in-house legal service providing legal support to working and retired members for all work-related matters. If you have a work-related legal matter, please contact the NEU directly for advice.

However, Thompsons is proud to work with the NEU to deliver its Legal Plus scheme. The Legal Plus scheme is designed to provide free legal support to members, both currently in work and retired, with non-work related legal matters.

We guarantee NEU members will keep 100% of any compensation with no deduction in legal fees – something no non-union solicitor can offer.


Without the legal weight and expertise from Thompsons and the NEU, I’m certain I wouldn’t have been properly compensated for what happened to me.
