On behalf of CILA members, the CILA Executive Director, Malcolm Hyde has been in dialogue with numerous bodies to understand and support the insurance industry response to COVID-19.
In the coming weeks the CILA will continue to liaise closely with the Association of British Insurers (ABI), the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA), the Association of Insurance and Risk Managers in Industry and Commerce (AIRMIC) and the British Damage Management Association (BDMA) amongst others. We are also working with our colleagues across Europe and will provide a pan European update shortly.
In addition, Malcolm Hyde has made direct approaches to Government Departments, Members of Parliament and the FCA. The latest guidance to all employers and employees can be found at the Business, Energy and Industry Strategy Department website. This covers advice to employers and employees who are unable to follow the Government advice to "work at home". Please note that Health & Safety at Work legislation still applies.
