SIMI Presents First Ever Professional Indemnity Insurance for Mediators!
In January 2020 at the inaugural SIMI Town Hall and press conference, SIMI announced that we were working on obtaining Professional Indemnity (PI Insurance) for all SIMI Mediators.
In August 2020. we are proud to share that our efforts in this have been successful! All SIMI Accredited and Certified Mediators are now covered by PI Insurance. The PI Insurance protects all SIMI Accredited and Certified Mediators in the event that a claim is made against them by a client in the course of their services as a mediator.
The policy covers all SIMI members from 1 July 2020 to 1 December 2021, and is fully paid for by SIMI.
This initiative is part of the team's on-going efforts to enhance the list of benefits available to all SIMI Mediators and develop valuable ways to complement our members' mediation activities.
For reference, SIMI mediators can find an infographic setting out further information about the PI Insurance which is available for download here.
