Parametric solutions: protecting your business from extreme events

Across Australia and New Zealand, businesses know only too well the impacts of natural catastrophes such as flood, cyclones, bushfires, earthquakes and more. They have also experienced the range of limitations for cover under traditional insurance.

There is an alternative. Parametric solutions respond to the characteristics of a specific event, such as the strength of a cyclone, the height of a river in flood, temperature-induced perils - where those characteristics are highly correlated to likely loss. Offering cover across a wide range of industries, parametric solutions represent a key alternative risk transfer option to better address “nat cat” exposures.

On this webinar, our global experts discussed how these solutions work and their applicability to Australian and New Zealand organisations.

Can employers force their employees to get COVID-19 vaccinations?

This is a tough question and one that all local employers will need to traverse in the near future when a COVID-19 vaccine is rolled out in Australia. The vaccine has been announced as voluntary by the Federal Government, leaving employers with ambiguity as to whether they can force an employee to be vaccinated. Join our webinar guest speaker Jonathan Mamaril, Director of NB Lawyers – Lawyers for Employers, as he discusses why the answer is probably “yes” and how a policy properly implemented should protect an employer’s position. A panel discussion exploring the insurance aspects of this matter is also included.
