But before company leaders can confront the person responsible, they need to identify that bullying has indeed taken place and confirm the facts. The following is a basic three-step plan of action:
According to the Insurance Board of Canada, 61 per cent of Canadians think their home insurance covers them in case of overland flooding. Sixty one per cent of Canadians are wrong.
The IBC’s Pierre Babinksy says insurers in Canada don’t offer protection against flooding because they think floods, unlike fires, earthquakes or hurricanes, are what he calls “certainties.”
Spring brings the approach of several CE deadlines for insurance agents across Canada. Now is the time to get working on your mandatory CE hours and avoid the last minute rush.
The Continuing Education deadline for insurance agents in BC and Manitoba is May 31, and Alberta’s requirements must be met by June 30 this year. In Saskatchewan, your deadline varies based on your license renewal date.
BC Insurance agents – your CE deadline is coming up on May 31, and the BC Insurance Council wants to make you aware of a number of key points about your continuing education requirements.

ILScorp is proud to have partnered with Stephanie Hendrie for our new online course: Secrets for Exceptional Speaking.

Some Insurance Corporation of BC (ICBC) customers have overpaid their optional insurance for the past six years, putting an extra $36 million into ICBC coffers, the corporation has announced. However the same system of errors cost ICBC about $71 million from customers who were undercharged an average of $34 per year. The BC Transportation Minister has ordered that all affected customers be refunded the overpayment, which averaged $21 per year, per customer.
Harassment in the workplace includes any objectionable behaviour that demeans, belittles, humiliates or embarrasses an employee. It also includes intimidation and threats. Ontario, Manitoba, Québec and Saskatchewan have already introduced legislation against bullying and B.C. recently enacted Bill 14 [Workers Compensation Amendment Act] to address the effects of bullying at work.
