About the panel discussion
When asked what the biggest challenges are for the crewing sector currently, there is almost complete unanimity across organisations and positions in identifying crew claims.
- Given the advances in employment law, conventions, range of services available on the market, why are Crew Claims still taking up so many resources?
- Dealing with the ambulance chasers problem
- Minimising the risk of seafarers becoming unwitting victims
- Reducing frivolous claims
