We’re Busy at the CLM Conference This Week

The annual CLM Conference is the premier event for those in the claims and litigation management industry. This year, attendees from Government Risks, Healthcare Group and Management Liability are representing OneBeacon as panelist presenters at the conference in Houston, TX.

Daniele Freaner, who is part of OneBeacon Healthcare Group claims, is part of a presentation titled, “Danger Zone: Healthcare Liabilities Associated with Natural Disasters.” This session will identify the liability risks faced by healthcare providers or entities that can arise in natural disaster emergency situations, discuss ways to minimize those risks and provide possible defenses.

In the session titled, “A Higher Education for All: Title IX, Title VII and the New Administration,” Management Liability claim’s Jennifer Weinstein will be part of a panel that will discuss the new Title IV regulations and guidelines issued by the current administration, the evolving case law in this area, the conflicts with other sexual assault and discrimination laws and the impact on claims and their resolution. The session also will discuss what underwriters should watch for in light of the recent changes.

Government Risks’ Sarah Schmitz will participate in the session titled, “The Crossroads of Coverage, Liability and Sovereign Immunity.” Policies issued to governmental entities often state that the purchase of the policy is not a waiver of the entities’ sovereign immunity. Speakers will discuss what happens when plaintiffs challenge whether such language in the policy preserves the sovereign immunity, how courts have handled those challenges and practical tips for how to handle such situations.

OneBeacon looks forward to participating in these sessions, as well as the additional educational and networking opportunities at this conference!

Jennifer Weinstein, Assistant Vice President Management Liability Claims, will participate in one of these sessions titled, “WARNING – The Internet May Be Hazardous to Employees!” This panel discussion will focus on how employers must be prepared to prevent and/or address a wide range of workplace issues arising out of the internet and social media – whether there are potential safety issues that happen in the workplace or concerns about privacy and employers using social media to find out more about employees or potential employees. The panel will address policies and procedures employers can institute to mitigate some of those exposures.

Stop by to hear the discussion on November 2!
