Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act
Redressing the balance in workplace compensation claims or putting insurers to more expense?
Join us on Thursday 11 January 2018 as Jeff Heasman returns for another interactive session for our members and their guests.
During this free one hour CPD seminar, Jeff will critically analyse the recent changes to the law which mean that there is no longer any civil liability for breach of health and safety regulations made under the Health & Safety at Work Act.
By passing the Enterprise Act, Parliament's aim was to prevent compensation windfalls to employees who were able to rely on strict liability provisions when pursuing an employer's liability claim. However, it could be argued that the change in the law has simply increased the burden on insurers and, as a result, has increased their overall costs.
This thought-provoking seminar will look at both sides of the argument and assess how best insurers can adapt to this legislation.

This event is open to all members and their guests and starts at 6.00pm sharp. Light refreshments (tea/coffee/juice and biscuits) will be available from 5.30pm onwards.
By the end of the session, delegates will be able to:
understand how the law had developed in favour of employees prior to the passing of the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act
critically analyse the key provisions of the Act so far as they relate to employers' liability claims
assess how best an insurer can adapt its practices to ensure that employers' liability cases are dealt with efficiently and without necessarily increasing overall costs
