WIBA & Employer’s Liability Seminar
The Work Injury Benefits Act 2007 was passed by parliament to repeal the Workmen Compensation Act Cap. 236 of the laws of Kenya. It was a product of a series of new labour laws that were aimed at improving the welfare of workers. Employers are compelled to compensate employees who sustain injuries or contract diseases in the course of duty. Third Party Motor insurance is also compulsory in Kenya. Organizations in the transport business face similar risks by virtue of the people they employ and the vehicles they own and other contingent liability risks. They seek insurance for their risk exposures. Understanding the risks and the risk management measures is important. A discussion of the appropriate policies is necessary. This course details the risks, the sources of liability, the policies and other risk management measures.
