Workers’ Compensation and the HO Policy
CEUs: 1

Speaker(s): Robin Federici, CPCU, AAI, ARM, AINS, AIS, CPIW, President of Insurance Education & Training Associates

Your insured has decided to act as their own general contractor and build an addition to their home. They will be hiring several sub-contractors to take on parts of the project. Along with the construction project, the insured has just hired a nanny and a gardener. Unfortunately, the insured is now informing you about these exposures when reporting the serious injury sustained by one of these hired parties. Now what? Is their homeowner coverage going to respond? Did they need to purchase a workers’ compensation policy? We will discuss the difference between employees and independent contractors as viewed by state WC laws, and how the HO coverage may or may not respond. “Digging” our way through this program will also include an introductory discussion of basic WC principles.

Robin Federici , CPCU, AAI, ARM, AINS, AIS, CPIW has been writing and presenting insurance education programs to the insurance industry for over 30 years.  She formed Insurance Education & Training Associates (IETA) in 2003, after serving the Independent Insurance Agents of Rhode Island (IIARI) for sixteen years; first as Director of Education and subsequently as Assistant Executive Vice President. 

This followed a lengthy career in both underwriting and sales with insurance agencies and companies.  Even during her agency and company days, Robin created education courses to present to her peers as a volunteer instructor for IIARI.

Robin is a technical insurance and agency management expert with the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America’s Virtual University.  This role, coupled with her extensive background in both the agency and company ranks, and her love of teaching, adds a unique dimension and immediate and practical value to the programs she presents to insurance professionals countrywide.

Robin is also the author of Swiss-Re's current E&O program - "E&O Management - Meeting the Challenge of Change".
