YouTube UK profession getting sued for Racism against British members

Did you know that the UK profession is on the way to getting sued for racism against its British members. It has already got its fingers burnt for its racist pricing policy in the past.

We will post more in due course.

Dated from six years ago.

That means this news is moving as fast as the industry itself.

There is more to come. The point of this initial vid is to introduce the topic. They recently victimised the person that made the complaint. When the Judges decision comes out, I will post it.. They appear to have failed the chap who blew the whistle on the IFOA. They used heavy handed tacktics against him.. As I said,,, wait for the judgement to come out... This is just the warm up..

These are rather serious charges.

By the way, why do our brethren from across the pond have such poor grammar skills? Their exams are more report-based than ours, and yet their posts so often are rife with errors.

Hey!
I don't think English is OPs first language.

Being sued does not prove that someone is guilty. I am another of those waiting for more information.

I really don't blame JMO or others for having missed this. It's not in the original post, and it's not in the thread title. Given that the title is about racism against British members, people assume it's about racism against British members (as opposed to a specific whistleblower being targeted.)

I bolded the key line.


It's going to take more evidence than the specific person failed. People fail actuarial exams all the time. I assume the UK orgs have anonymized grading, as we do in the North American orgs, but I could be wrong about that.

So I'm skeptical.

Duh. I thought they meant "failed to support the person." The whole time frame also confused me. Supposedly the new rule looks at individual income, and the implication was that a new lawsuit was challenging that fact - or some such thing.

Too bad that the problem, if there is one, was so poorly presented.
