Une commission d’enquête indépendante a accordé à Robert Thériault une somme de 64 515 $ pour pertes financières découlant de sa retraite forcée du Conseil scolaire acadien provincial. Le Conseil scolaire acadien provincial a fait preuve de discrimination contre M. Thériault en le forçant à prendre sa retraite en 2005. En considérant les pertes subies, le président de la commission, Don Murray, a accepté que M. Thériault s’est senti trahi, amer, déçu, bouleversé et frustré par sa retraite forcée. « Cette décision reconnaît l’impact que peut avoir un acte de discrimination, que ce soit en raison de la race, du sexe, de l’âge ou de toute autre caractéristique protégée, sur l’estime de soi d’une personne, a dit Krista Daley, directrice générale de la Commission des droits de la personne de la Nouvelle-Écosse. Il est agréable de voir que le président de la commission a conclu que la discrimination fondée sur l’âge n’est pas différente de tout autre type de discrimination. » « Lorsqu’une personne est affectée par des décisions qui sont basées sur des caractéristiques personnelles non pertinentes, des dommages sont causés. » La commission d’enquête est la dernière étape du processus de plaintes concernant les droits de la personne. read more

Lima – Peruvian president Ollanta Humala applauded on Monday the level of cooperation existing between his country and Morocco, both at the bilateral and multilateral levels.In a message on the occasion of celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries, held under the patronage of King Mohammed VI, President Humala praised bilateral cooperation between the two countries as well as within the South America-Arab world summit and the Alliance of the Pacific of which Morocco is an observer-member.The message, read out by general director of the state protocol, Alfredo Castro Perez Caneto, also hails the continuous progression of ties between the two countries since they establish diplomatic relations on June 18, 1964, on the basis of reciprocal trust, friendship and understanding. The Peruvian president also stressed that both countries are adopting a policy of openness onto the world, progress, development and social inclusion, recalling his country’s decision to open a trade office in Casablanca, as a contribution to the consolidation of trade relations between the two countries.The message was read out during an official ceremony held at the Inca Garcilaso cultural center at the foreign affairs ministry in Lima, in the presence of Moroccan minister of foreign affairs and cooperation Salaheddine Mezouar and Peruvian peer Eda Rivas, as well as members of the diplomatic corps and other figures. read more
“The idea is to use these examples of responsible forest management to help chart a course for improved management of forestry resources across the entire Latin American and Caribbean region,” UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) senior forestry officer Carlos Marx Carneiro told the 24th meeting of the agency’s Latin American and Caribbean Forestry Commission in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. According to FAO statistics, over the 1990-2005 period the region’s forest area declined from 51 per cent to 47 per cent of total land area, primarily due to conversion of forest land to agriculture.Yet despite this grim picture painted by these figures, both forestry authorities and FAO experts say there are numerous examples of sound programmes in which people are succeeding in effectively managing forests, and the benefits of forestry are being shared among local communities.“Looking at these examples of excellence in forest management gives us a much more accurate picture,” Mr. Carneiro said. “The destruction of tropical forests is not the whole story. We know from field experience and reports that in many places in Latin America and the Caribbean forests are being managed well – yet these successes are often not acknowledged.”Through the initiative, government institutions, private sector companies, local communities, and individuals are being invited to nominate examples of successful forestry management programmes. These will then be carefully screened and analyzed by an inter-regional panel of experts, with some 25 to 30 programmes covering a wide range of topics ultimately being selected for in-depth study.These analytical and prescriptive case studies will be collected in a book slated for publication in 2009. The initiative follows the publication in 2005 of a similar book on forestry in the Asia-Pacific region, which became the most popular forestry publication in the history of FAO’s regional office there. read more
Wal-Mart plans to accelerate small store growth to compete with dollar stores, drugstores by News Staff Posted Oct 10, 2012 12:27 pm MDT NEW YORK, N.Y. – Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is accelerating the expansion of small stores, particularly its Neighborhood Market stores, as it looks to compete with a variety of rivals from dollar stores to drug chains.“This gives us the opportunity to build more stores for less money,” Bill Simon, president of Wal-Mart’s U.S. division told Wall Street analysts gathered at a meeting near its headquarters in Bentonville, Ark.Simon said it plans to have 500 Neighborhood Market stores and 12 Express stores by fiscal 2016.As of the end of July, Wal-Mart had 10 Express stores and had ramped up its Neighborhood Market concept to 217 locations.Investors cheered the news, sending Wal-Mart’s stock up $2.16, or 2.9 per cent, to $76.30 in midday trading.Simon said Wal-Mart’s small stores, which range from 10,000 square feet to about 55,000 square feet, have become a hybrid and compete well with a broad variety of merchants.Neighbourhood Market store have generated a 5 per cent increase in revenue at stores open at least a year for the first half of this year. That’s more than double the growth rate of the Wal-Mart’s average store.Express stores are less than one-tenth the size of Wal-Mart supercenters and offer groceries, general merchandise like tools, and pharmacies. Neighborhood Markets are more than twice the size of Express stores and offer perishable food, household supplies and beauty aids as well as a pharmacy.The news comes as Wal-Mart’s shares are up more than 24 per cent since early this year. That’s been fueled by a turnaround of its namesake business in the U.S., which accounts for about 60 per cent of its total sales.Wal-Mart last year began adding back 10,000 products and refocused on keeping prices low throughout the store, backing the strategy with TV campaigns. It has done that by cutting expenses and passing some of the savings on to customers. As a result, starting late last year, it’s been able to turn around a more than two-year slump in revenue at stores opened at least a year. The metric is considered a key indicator of a retailer’s health.Company officials told investors Wednesday that it is preparing to win this holiday season. The company is focusing on initiatives to help its low-income shoppers finance their holiday purchases.Wal-Mart officials said that launching layaway 30 days earlier than last year has helped boost the business. It already has $400 million worth of layaway merchandise, half of last year’s total, and the season has barely started.

Officer Cadet Jordan Lobb, also a Brock University student, lays a wreath during Tuesday’s gathering in Ian Beddis Gymnasium. Jordan Lobb has now been on both sides of a Remembrance Day ceremony at Brock University.Last year he sat amongst students, staff and faculty in the Ian Beddis Gymnasium. On Tuesday, the officer cadet sat beside Gerry Grant, an 82-year-old who was in the Navy during the Korean War but who never made it into battle.“To do what I did, laying a wreath, was a very cool experience,” Lobb said after Tuesday’s Remembrance Day gathering. “To come out and see how much our school supports the troops and Remembrance Day (was meaningful), especially keeping in mind the school’s heritage of the military being named after Sir. Isaac Brock.”Lobb was named after his great uncle who was a tank commander during the Second World War. The 19 year old from Clinton, Ont. joined the Canadian Forces last March and is part of the Lincoln and Welland Regiment.“I’m kind of doing a little bit of what he did and following in his footsteps in a certain light.”Lobb, a bachelor of arts student in business/corporate communications, believes today’s students have an increased awareness and appreciation for the sacrifices soldiers made for Canada’s freedom.The death of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, 24, who was killed last month while guarding the National War Memorial in downtown Ottawa, affected an entire country.“It was closer to home in a lot of ways,” Lobb said.Grant, who has been laying wreaths at Brock each Nov. 11 for close to 10 years, said he was very impressed by the student turnout in the packed gymnasium.“It’s great.”Brock President Jack Lightstone, BUSU president Roland Erman, and graduate student president Lee Belding were among those to speak and lay wreaths during the gathering, which included aboriginal drumming and members of local legions.“It’s a wealth of experience in a lot of ways,” Lobb said of veterans’ stories. “It’s a beautiful experience and beautiful opportunity to listen to someone tell their story … because eventually we’re just going to lose those stories if we don’t get them and experience them.” read more

Ms. Handfield-Gardiner who previously held the position of Crown Counsel within the Attorney General’s Chambers, holds a LLB and a recently earned Master’s Degree in Law from the University of Leeds.Commenting on her appointment Mrs. Handfield-Gardiner said; “I am humbled, yet proud to be working in a country where young women are encouraged to break glass ceilings and take on roles that were once only reserved for middle- aged men. Given the great leadership of our Attorney General, I am delighted to have been appointed as the Senior Crown Counsel in the International Division of the Attorney General’s Chambers.“Having worked in the Chambers since 2010, it is my earnest desire to continue to contribute to the ever-evolving demands and obligations of the legal industry in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The law, like any living organism, must change or be updated as our communities improve. The same way lawyers are meant to continuously update themselves to meet the demands of the legal profession. It’s against this backdrop that I decided to return to the United Kingdom to read my LLM in International Law. This provided me with the opportunity to improve my knowledge and skills thus making me a greater asset to Chambers. My commitment to the Attorney General’s Chambers and the Turks and Caicos Islands Government remains steadfast.“The decision to return to school represented a considerable sacrifice of time away from work and my family as well as finances on my part. However, I remain grateful to the Deputy Governor and her team as I was able to receive two $5,000.00 grants from the Professional Development Fund towards the cost of my studies.“I wish to encourage my colleagues in the Public Sector to continue to explore funding opportunities such as the Professional Development Fund which provides financial assistance to enable you to excel academically in your desired profession. Your commitment to your education serves also as a testament to your dedication to your personal development and which puts you in a better position knowledge- wise to serve your country.”Ms. Swann who holds a Diploma with Honours in Land Economy and Valuation Surveying from the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTECH), obtained an LLB from the University of Buckingham in 2010 and in 2012 was awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice upon successful completion of the Legal Practice Course (LPC) at the Manchester campus of BPP University College.During the period 2013-2016, Ms. Swann worked as a Paralegal at Minnis & Company in the Bahamas before joining the Attorney General’s Chambers in September 2016 as a temporary Crown Counsel in the place of Mrs. Handfield-Gardiner who was on study leave at the time and was called to the TCI Bar in July 2017.Mrs. Handfield-Gardiner having completed her studies in September 2017 has been successfully promoted to the role of Senior Crown Counsel through open competition. Ms. Swann through open competition has been successfully appointed to permanently replace Mrs. Shayone Handfield-Gardiner as Crown Counsel within the Chambers.Commenting on her appointment Ms. Swann said; “I am very pleased to have been appointed Crown Counsel (Commercial/Civil) with the Attorney General’s Chambers. I am confident that I will be able to make a positive contribution to the Chambers and remain grateful for the opportunity to do so.”Attorney General, Honourable Rhondalee Braithwaite-Knowles is pleased to have both ladies in her Chambers and said; “I am very pleased to welcome the appointments of Mrs. Shayone Handfield-Gardiner to the post of Senior Crown Counsel and Ms. Chassidy Swann to the post of Crown Counsel.“Both appointments are part of my efforts at succession planning within my Chambers and these appointments are a testament to the solid work ethic of each counsel and their commitment to professional development. Shayone having just completed her Master’s Degree in Law and Chassidy having recently been admitted to the TCI Bar (following her in service training in my Chambers) will be valuable assets to the Government in these new roles. Shayone joins the recently established international division and Chassidy joins the commercial division.”Deputy Governor Her Excellency Anya Williams commended both ladies on their appointments and said; “It is with great pleasure that I take the opportunity to congratulate both Shayone and Chassidy on their appointments. Shayone has been an ardent worker over the years and I commend her on her decision to upgrade her skills which assisted in her promotion to the role of Senior Crown Counsel. As she joins the International Division of the Chambers we will certainly miss her advice and guidance in routine TCIG matters, but am certain that she will do well.“Chassidy during her short time with us, fully utilized her temporary employment to prove that a permanent place in the Chambers should be made for her and we are happy to have her and will certainly ensure that she is kept very busy! Congratulations ladies on appointments well deserved!”Press Release: TCIG read more
For the John Lewis Partnership, employee benefits are one of a number of elements that have helped to establish its reputation as a great place to work. The organisation encompasses John Lewis and Waitrose, and all of its 90,000 members of staff are partners in the business.Rachael Abbott, benefits development manager at the John Lewis Partnership, says: “Benefits are part of the whole, it’s also about our history, philosophy and culture.”The retailer continually works to ensure that its benefits proposition is relevant to its workforce, which includes a range of roles, locations and working environments. “It’s trying to make sure the proposition has the right breadth and depth to be relevant to the vast majority of partners,” says Abbott.The organisation has introduced new benefits over the last year to support the everyday needs of its staff. This includes a salary sacrifice arrangement for mobile devices and a financial education programme, My Financial Choices, provided by a third party. The financial education scheme provides seminars on location and access to one-to-one sessions.“Offering some form of financial education now is really important,” explains Abbott. “It’s also about trying to recognise what we think will add value to our partners.”The John Lewis Partnership’s benefits team constantly keeps the benefits proposition under review so that it continues to provide value to its employees both now and in the future. While the organisation’s benefits programme and its longstanding employer reputation serve as a differentiator when it comes to employee attraction and retention, it wants to ensure that the benefits it offers remain relevant, valuable and appealing.“We are a different type of business, the happiness of our partners is enshrined in our constitution, it’s the first principle,” says Abbott. “Having a rich and broad benefits offer supports partner happiness and is part of the deal partners get in being co-owners.” read more
October 31, 2014 Keeping a website fresh can be difficult. We talked to our online experts for their tips and tricks on ensuring you deliver the best online experience possible. Here’s what they suggest to get started on a system that works for you.Be organizedKeep an activity log at the ready for easy reference suggests Jim Joseph, North American president of New York-based communications agency Cohn & Wolfe. This step will ensure your reviews reflect your business’ needs and make the process less of a chore. Checklists can also help. A weekly checklist might include reminders to review product offerings, pricing and promotions and changes in week-to-week analytics. Monthly or quarterly reviews might double check contact numbers and addresses, as well as staff rosters and privacy policies. Don’t be afraid to test out any functionality on your site during these checks to ensure online shopping carts and forms they are still working as you want them to and that contact emails are being routed to the correct people. Regular, repeatable processes make the task efficient and ensures its completion.DelegateYou can’t do everything so make planning online part of your company DNA. Enlist staff members in updates, allowing them to own the update process. Have them report back to you at intervals that make sense for your business. Ask them to explain study not just what needs refreshing but your site’s basic performance metrics. In some cases, you might hire someone to help. Eric Siu, CEO of digital marketing agency Single Grain, recommends having a WordPress support admin for those using that platform to keep plugins updated and websites speedy each month. A service like this could cost start at around $99 a month.Ask: When’s the online launch?When your business makes any change, from a new location to a new phone number or an updated logo, work the online launch into your planning. You’ll want to make sure information is updated across your site and social media channels and that you’re consistent across fonts and colors. Says Daniel Young, content manager for 1&1 Internet, Inc., “If the visual aspects of the website vary from page to page or outlet to outlet, the overall brand messaging gets lost, and can drive away visitors (and potential customers).”Related: 5 Ecommerce Mistakes to Avoid: A Newbie’s GuideGet it on the calendarYou might think your website is a priority, but how much time do you actually dedicate to updating it? Take a look at your calendar and carve out time weekly, monthly and quarterly to ensure that your site reflects who your business is now. Says Joseph, “Schedule the updates on your calendar, stick to it, and it’ll become a regular flow.”Related: 4 Secrets to Multichannel SuccessLook aheadThe online landscape is constantly shifting.
