Insurers and salesmen ditch the CBI

The Association of Medical Insurers and Intermediaries (amii) has terminated its membership of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI).

Its decision comes after allegations about misconduct and sexual assault from CBI employees came to light. The organisation has now admitted it hired ‘culturally toxic’ staff and failed to fire people who sexually harassed female colleagues.

amii executive chairman Dave Middleton said: ‘We are deeply concerned about the allegations made about the CBI and have therefore decided to terminate our membership with immediate effect.

‘In light of this, amii cannot continue to support the CBI and we have notified the organisation of our immediate termination accordingly.’
