Event Detail

The Sentencing Amendment Act 2014 provides for the Court to impose a reparation order on a convicted defendant where the victim experiences a shortfall in ACC cover for bodily injury. This will increase the scope of situations where insurers indemnify policyholders in respect of reparation payments at the time of sentencing. This is a significant development in the law which many people in the insurance industry are following closely.

This workshop will discuss the impact on statutory liability policies with particular attention to prosecutions and sentencing under the Health & Safety in Employment Act.  Consideration will also be given to amendments to the Health and Safety in Employment Act which may make fines under that legislation insurable. Consideration to possible solutions will also be commented on.

The workshop will also explore opinions expressed by some commentators that the amendment opens up the convicted defendant to civil remedies which would otherwise have been barred under ACC legislation.

This will be a lively and engaging presentation where audience participation and questions will be encouraged at the end.
