Perhaps you saw the horrifying video last week of a cop brutally tearing a 1-year-old baby out of his mother’s arms in a Brooklyn food stamp office, while bystanders yelled in protest.Then perhaps you saw news coverage later that smeared and discredited the African-American mother, Jazmine Headley, for having been charged in New Jersey with “credit card fraud.”The smear tried to reduce her to “unfit mother, no big deal.”Wrong. Big deal.Headley was sitting on the floor in the overcrowded waiting room, playing with the baby as she waited to try to get her childcare benefits reinstated. When she objected to how a security guard ordered her to stand up, he ended up manhandling her, arresting her, taking her baby away and getting her sent to jail on Rikers’ Island.Why? Not because she was an unfit mother — she is not. She was there in that office being a good mother.But she ended up in jail because the cop was doing his job — as assigned to him by the repressive state.Because the police are not paid to be friends of poor people, working-class people, people of color, LGBTQ people, women or any gender-oppressed people. They are never, ever really around to help those in need.No, the cops are everywhere for one reason, and one reason only — to keep us in line, to keep us quiet and obedient, to threaten, to beat, to kill, to do whatever they can to protect the property of the rich and the laws of an unjust state — and to keep those of us bound by oppression from rising up.The cop was “just doing his job” — terrorizing Headley for demanding her rights. The cop was “just doing his job” protecting Big Business property rights by enforcing a warrant on a struggling woman who only maybe had committed a “crime of survival” against a multibillion-dollar corporate credit card company.The ruling class has hired cops to do the job of protecting this rotten system.And Jazmine Headley did her job in fighting for herself and her child.Our job is to build unstoppable forward motion against repression, racism, sexism, capitalism — and to resist, resist, resist.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
After some high-profile ransomware incidents within the real estate industry, CoreLogic discussed how businesses can protect themselves from attacks. Ransomware, CoreLogic states, is a malware (malicious software) that encrypts the files on your network or otherwise blocks access to them. The attacker will prompt users to pay a ransom to access their files, but experts urge victims to not pay the ransom, as attackers may unencrypt or allow access to the files as a result.CoreLogic states that to avoid ransomware, companies need to train their employees to know how to identify phishing emails and refrain from clicking links from outside or unknown sources.The most important thing a company can do to limit the spread of ransomware between computers on their network is to properly use a firewall. A well-designed network will include a firewall which limits traffic between areas of different security sensitivity, and the firewall systems may be able to detect when malware tries to move from computer to computer through it.“For example, in the network pictured below, when someone brings an infected computer into the training room, the ransomware can be limited by the firewall so it doesn’t have access to any other part of the network.”Ransomware is not the only type of fraud impacting real estate professionals and consumers. According to the Coalition to Stop Real Estate Wire Fraud, real estate wire fraud is undergoing an epidemic. Real estate wire fraud is a sophisticated scam targeting individuals making wire transfer payments during the home buying process. FBI data reveals that 11,300 victims lost a combined $149 million due to real estate wire fraud in 2018 alone, representing a 166% increase in the total money lost compared to 2017.According to the FBI, only an estimated 12-15% of all fraud is reported, and the Coalition notes that the best way to combat these statistics is through educating the homebuyer. Homebuyers, particularly first-time buyers, are the ones who are the most at risk of wire transfer fraud.

The Division Bench of Justice Manmohan and Justice Sanjeev Narula further directed that in the event of any dereliction of duty, it shall be open to the Delhi Government officials to take action against the delinquent health workers in accordance with law. The present order has come in a plea seeking effective implementation of healthcare and safety facilities in the DDA complex in Narela which has been converted into a quarantine facility by the Delhi Government. The said DDA complex in Narela has been designated as a quarantine facility for those who have been tested positive for COVID19 virus. Appearing for the Petitioner, Ms Anupradha Singh argued that the Delhi Government is not taking adequate steps to control the disease and implement quarantine facilities which include making doctors available, providing adequate hygiene in the flats, sufficient number of sanitation workers for carrying out sanitization and disinfection of toilets and rooms, improve the quality of food, repair two elevators in one of the blocks that are out of service and make provision of linen, soap, sanitizers and other essential items. Challenging the said claims, Mr Sameer Vashishth, who appeared for the Delhi Government, submitted that as per the instructions received by him from the District Magistrate (North), Delhi, all facilities are available at the fourteen Towers constructed by DDA at Narela that have been partly converted for housing patients who have been diagnosed as Covid-19 ‘positive’ and partially for quarantining those who have turned Covide-19 ‘negative,’ after treatment.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Story

Stephen Brashear/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — Lawmakers on Wednesday grilled the head of the Federal Aviation Administration over how his agency handled the safety certification of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 following two crashes that left more than 340 people dead.Acting Administrator Daniel Elwell faced questions from members of the House Transportation Committee about the FAA’s role in approving the now grounded plane.“The FAA has a credibility problem,” said House Transportation subcommittee chairman Rep. Rick Larsen, D-W.Va. “The FAA must take steps to restore the public’s confidence.”“In the U.S., the 737 MAX will return to service only when the FAA’s analysis of the facts and technical data indicate that it is safe to do so,” Elwell said in his opening remarks. Wednesday’s hearing marked the first in a series of investigations into why regulators or Boeing did not require pilots to go through training for the scrutinized automated safety system suspected in playing a critical role in the two crashes and why that system wasn’t detailed in the plane’s flight manual prior to the Lion Air crash in Indonesia last fall. An Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX 8 crashed in March.The MCAS, or Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System, is designed to automatically drop the nose of the aircraft if sensors mounted on the nose of the aircraft detect the plane potentially entering a stall, a dangerous situation for an aircraft at low altitude.“How can we have a single point of failure in a modern aircraft?” Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., asked in his opening statements.He said the the parents of 24-year-old Samya Stumo – killed in the Ethiopia Airlines crash were in the audience.“Their daughter was flying from Ethiopia to Kenya for work when Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 went down,” DeFazio said. “They deserve answers and accountability, as does the general flying public.”This is a developing story.

VallarieE/iStock(WASHINGTON) — U.S. Customs and Border Protection is investigating allegations of physical abuse of a girl in its custody at a border facility in Clint, Texas, near the Mexico border, according to a government document provided to Congress. The document says the girl reported on March 12 that she had been “beaten and abused” while in custody at the facility.A CBP spokeswoman declined to provide details because she said the investigation remained open.The Clint border facility, located outside El Paso, Texas, and across from Ciudad Juarez in Mexico, is at the center of allegations of child neglect by CBP’s U.S. Border Patrol. Designated as a facility for “unaccompanied” minors — many of them separated from extended relatives the government doesn’t recognize as a legal guardian — the Clint station quickly filled up at one point this spring with some 350 children, including toddlers and at least one infant.Lawyers who inspected the facility said the children were denied showers, toothbrushes and cooked food, and older children were forced to care for the younger ones despite being unrelated. Trump administration officials said that while conditions were not ideal — border patrol stations were never intended to house children — they insisted that many of the allegations were overblown.“The real story I would submit to you on the border crisis and our response is about our Border Patrol agents who have chosen a career about protecting others,” acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan told reporters earlier this month.An internal watchdog office has confirmed massive overcrowding and unsanitary conditions at other facilities, quoting one manager as saying his site was a “ticking time bomb.”The document alleging abuse by a female girl held at Clint was first reported by NBC News and was confirmed by ABC News.At one point, some 2,500 migrant kids deemed “unaccompanied” piled up at these border facilities as the government scrambled to find beds for them in longer-term shelters at the Department of Health and Human Services.In court records recently released, many of these children told court-appointed lawyers of spending weeks in freezing temperatures and claimed some border guards threatened them with prison if they tried to sneak any food from the facilities.“I have not been told how long I have to stay here,” a 5-year-old from Honduras told the lawyers. “I am frightened, scared and sad.”Others spoke about the freezing temperatures.“It is always cold in the cage,” a 17-year-old boy from Guatemala told the lawyers. “They took my (8-year-old) nephew’s clothes when we arrived at Ursula because they were wet, and gave him a T-shirt, which is not enough to keep him warm.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Soft focusOn 1 Feb 2000 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. With this year’s Softworld conference and exhibition only a week away hereis a timely reminder of the importance of technology to the strategicHRfunction Technology is playing a crucial role in realising the capacity of the HRfunction to act as a strategic partner in the achievement of business goals.The advance of e-business and globalisation has increased demands on HR toprovide integrated and flexible systems available 24 hours a day, seven days aweek to support global business. E-business has accelerated the process ofdevolving HR decisions to line managers, thrown together teams built acrossvirtual networks and time zones and created an environment which is onlypossible through connectivity, collaborative working and instant access toinformation.Technology, used wisely, can help meet these demands. First, technology canrelieve HR of much of the routine administrative work that can stifle creativity.Second, technology can perform previously impossible complex transactions tocreate access to new reward systems, such as flexible benefits and global shareschemes, and add new levels of employee understanding to existing systems suchas pensions. One way of meeting the challenge of integration is to use Internettechnology as a common tool.Developments in HR systems have supported business changes in the followingways. Along with the automation of administrative tasks is the growing abilityto extend access to a wider group, including employees, applicants, pensionersand suppliers. Some companies are venturing into new technologies such as interactive voicerecognition, using kiosks and even mobile phones for access, imaging anddocument management.Windows technology with the use of browsers and kiosks has made systems moreuser-friendly, saving time and money on implementation and training for widergroups. Reporting tools are easier to use, with more real-time data and betteraccess to history and trend information.The speed of growth of new technology can often be overwhelming and presentsa challenge to organisations struggling to keep ahead. It pays to consider very carefully the process of automation to ensure itdelivers efficiency benefits and also who should be responsible for enteringdata and the purpose it serves. A key contributor to success is gaining thebuy-in of everyone involved in the process and making sure they understand whatis required of them. Employees, for example need to understand where personalupdate is their responsibility.Specialist applicationsThese developments have given the HR function the opportunity to enhance theperformance of tasks such as expatriate and pensions administration and alsoopened up new possibilities which would previously have been unthinkable due toadministrative workload.Expatriate managementExpatriate populations are growing together with an increasing focus on thereturn on investment. Using technology to handle the routine areas of expatriatemanagement can release time for HR to concentrate on expert matters such asselection, career development, repatriation and intercultural adaptability,thereby lessening the risk of assignment failure.Pensions administrationThe trend from defined benefits towards defined contribution pensionsschemes encourages an active interest from employees in the performance oftheir pension funds. Future systems, currently available in the US, allowemployees to track the performance of their pension fund, to switch investmentsbetween funds and model their future pensions. Employers will welcome theavailability of data on the performance of pension funds and financial status.Flexible benefits Flexible benefits are increasing in popularity, particularly as apost-merger harmonisation tool. They tend to improve employee satisfaction andhence recruitment and retention statistics, while offering cost containmentopportunities. The new packages offer electronic interfaces to providers, taxcomputations and configurable reporting. These systems can be operated in-houseor outsourced to providers who may offer additional support such as callcentres and helpdesks.Learning and performance managementCreating a link between learning and business results is a priorityobjective for HR managers who need to justify training budgets. Leading edgesystems help achieve this objective.These systems can offer a wide user group access to the right learning atthe right time, using competency analysis to identify skill gaps and suggestdelivery methods. Desktop learning can realise significant savings in traveland accommodation budgets.Companies are looking for further functionality in linking learning anddevelopment with performance management and reward strategy with theintegration of performance data, 360-degree feedback and job evaluationmethodology. An overall view of an organisation’s capability and progressagainst goals is helpful for executive information.Share scheme administrationAs share scheme incentives are increasingly used as a remuneration tool,current methods of administration are becoming impracticable. Driven by marketpressure, the technology to service global share schemes is already on thehorizon. It will incorporate a wide variety of facilities including tracking,documentation, report generation and regulatory and tax compliance and willneed to link the whole range of interested parties in different locations andcountries.Implementing technologyThe future HR function is likely to incorporate strategic partnerships,shared services and administration (supplied either through self-servicesystems or a service centre.)Systems can be operated in-house or on an outsourced basis. Activities mostsuitable for outsourcing are those which are low risk and which the company isless able to perform effectively.Shared service centres can be defined as a centralised group of resourcesdrawn from one or more functional areas that delivers products and services tointernal business customers. Some companies favour a single central location,perhaps with satellites, to maximise standardisation while others choosemultiple locations. HR shared service centres can realise significant costsavings and service improvements and can be used in combination withoutsourcing or as a transitional step towards it.Using the Internet or a company intranet, employee self-service can becombined with either outsourcing or shared service centresConclusionDevelopments in technology represent a vast opportunity for raising theimportance of HR in the organisation and focusing on its strategic role. Risks,however, can be high and it is vital that the right approach is adoptedBy Dierdre Hardy• Dierdre Hardy, is senior manager for global HRsolutions atPricewaterhouseCoopers.

Comments are closed. Firms risk fines for failing staff on stakeholder pensionsOn 18 Mar 2003 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Almost half of UK employers are breaking the law by failing to provide staffwith access to a stakeholder pension scheme, and could face fines of up to£50,000. This is the conclusion of a survey of more than 1,280 employers and advisersconducted by City law firm Fox Williams. The survey revealed that while all of the respondents had five or moreemployees – the threshold for provision of access to a stakeholder pensionscheme – only 55 per cent of employers provide some sort of scheme for all orsome of their employees. Commenting on the findings, Helen Monson, employment specialist at FoxWilliams, said she was surprised at the high number of employers who risk beingpenalised for breaching the Stakeholder Pension Schemes Regulations 2000. “Employers who are in breach of the regulations may not be aware oftheir requirements or may simply – and misguidedly, since there is currently noobligation to contribute to a stakeholder pension scheme, merely to facilitateaccess to it – by trying to save costs by not implementing a pensionscheme,” she said. “However, non-compliant employers should note that they may face apenalty of up to £50,000 for failure to comply with their obligation to provideaccess to a stakeholder scheme.” www.hrlaw.co.uk Related posts:No related photos.
