Filed by DHCBA through its President Senior Advocate Mohit Mathur, the present is filed challenging the assessment order passed by the South Delhi Municipal Corporation on 29/11/18, and any notice issued thereafter, asking for self-assessment of property tax returns on lawyers’ offices under sections 123A and 123B of the DMC Act. It is argued that the premises of the DHCBA is used for assisting the courts in dispensation of justice, therefore, calling the usage of such premises by advocates as ‘commercial activity’ has far reaching consequences. Various judgments of the Supreme Court are cited in the petition to contend that the premises of lawyers are used for professional activities and not for business activities.

ABC News(NEW YORK) — Gusty, dry winds continue to impact parts of the West, including California, Thursday. Some of the wind gusts have already surpassed 50 mph in parts of Northern California, with humidity as low as 3 percent. Because of the very dry conditions, the Briceburg fire in Mariposa County has more than doubled in size, and evacuations are in effect. The fire is burning in relatively rural area near Yosemite National Park.On Thursday, the worst of the gusty dry winds will shift into Southern California, where they’re called Santa Ana winds. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has issued a rare extreme fire danger warning for Los Angeles and Ventura counties, with wind gusts possible up to 70 mph and very low relative humidity. With these conditions, any fire can spread very quickly.Meanwhile, a record snowfall brought nearly half a foot of snow to Billings, Montana, Wednesday. Some areas of Montana have received up to 13 inches of snow. Denver is getting slammed Thursday with temperature whiplash: It was 83 degrees Wednesday in the city, but by Thursday night the temperature will be in the teens. This could be a 60+ degree temperature drop in a very short period of time, possibly close to all-time record. Already, seven states are under winter storm warnings, watches and advisories.On the southern end of the storm system, we could see severe storms with damaging winds, hail, and a few tornadoes, from Dallas to Tulsa, Oklahoma and into Missouri. The heaviest snow will be in the Dakotas on Friday and Saturday, where some areas could see up to two feet of record-breaking October snow. Combined with gusty winds over 45 mph, the weather could shut down I-90 and I-94.Finally, an ocean storm is backing up toward the Northeast U.S., with gusty winds 30-50 mph, heavy rain up to 5 inches, and coastal flooding. The worst hit areas will be eastern New England and eastern Long Island, especially Cape Cod and Suffolk County, Long Island, where wind alerts and flood alerts have been posted. The worst of the storm will be through Friday, after which the storm will begin to weaken and move away from East Coast by the weekend. Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
iStock/ChiccoDodiFCBy: BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News (NEW YORK) — Amid a series of nationwide protests over police treatment of African Americans, a report released Monday shows that 64% of civilian complaints against New York City police officers were filed by or on behalf of young black people ages 8 to 18 who claimed to have been mistreated after being stopped for innocuous activities like high-fiving and carrying backpacks.The report by the New York City Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB), a police watchdog agency, analyzed 112 completed investigations between Jan. 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019, showing an overwhelming number (nearly 90%) of grievances involved children of color (black and Hispanic youth).The report also found that the number of complaints by youth of color was significantly larger than in the overall population (69.1%) and that nearly half of the complaints (46.3%) came from or were made on behalf of black male youth.“Sadly, after years of witnessing news about police misconduct and possibly experiencing it themselves, even the youngest among us have an awareness of the tension that too often exists between the police and civilians,” CCRB Chairman Fred Davie said in a statement. “As young New Yorkers lead the way in calling for change in our city following the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless others, it’s time for the NYPD to re-consider how officers police our youth, address disparities in law enforcement, and commit to swift discipline when officers engage in misconduct.”Among the complaints probed was a March 2018 incident in which a group of black and Hispanic boys was stopped by multiple police officers simply for talking, laughing and playing with sticks picked up off the ground as they walked home, according to the report. A lieutenant had two of the boys, an 8-year-old and a 14-year-old, whom officers saw running with sticks in their hands handcuffed and taken to a police station in tears, according to the report.Two of the officers testified that they were looking for “a group of Hispanic men in their 20s with a machete and a stick chasing and fighting other individuals” but their stories were inconsistent.“The mother of the 8-year-old complained that her son was not treated properly and that his dreams of being a police officer were over,” the report reads, adding that the complaint was substantiated and two of the officers and a lieutenant are facing a trial on administrative charges brought against them.Other complaints substantiated by the board, include:— An 11-year-old black boy who was stopped and frisked by an undercover officer after they saw him shaking hands with and high-fiving a group of adults he knew in a housing project. “One of the bystanders told the officer that he should not be searching the victim as he was under the age of 13, but an officer replied that drugs can be given to younger children,” the report reads. “The officers then got back into their vehicle and drove away.”— A 16-year-old Hispanic boy stopped for jaywalking by an officer and a sergeant in plainclothes and searched without probable cause, according to the report. The officers discovered a small pocket knife on the boy. While the teenager was not arrested or issued a summons, the board “determined by a preponderance of the evidence” that the officers wrongfully invoked their authority because the boy’s behavior did not amount to founded suspicion of criminality allowing the officer to question him.— A 15-year-old black boy was holding a deli bag and walking to a homeless shelter when a plainclothes detective and sergeant in an unmarked vehicle ordered him to stop without announcing they were police. The teenager ran but was tackled and handcuffed, suffering minor injuries. The bag the boy was holding contained a cheese roll and a piece of cake, according to the report.In response to the report, NYPD officials said just one case of substantiated police misconduct is unacceptable.“A top priority Commissioner (Dermot) Shea has set for the NYPD is to reimagine doing all we can to protect and serve New York City’s kids,” the police department said in a statement. “After careful review, we accept each of the CCRB’s thoughtful and constructive recommendations — some of which are already in the process of being implemented and all of which will strengthen our new Youth Strategy.”The report showed that 407 total complaints were filed against New York City police by or on behalf of youth between Jan. 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019. Of the 112 fully-investigated complaints analyzed, 72% were filed by young people ages 10 to 18.The report says that 42% of the fully-investigated complaints were unsubstantiated and 29% were substantiated. About 93% of the fully-investigated complaints involved young people ages 10 to 18 that were filed on their behalf by adults.The CCRB also noted that between Jan. 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019, the NYPD reported 15,279 interventions with children ages 10 to 18. Of those interventions, 88% were with black or Hispanic children while just 6% were with white children.The report was released along with a public service announcement encouraging young New Yorkers who experience police misconduct to call the CCRB.The CCRB recommended that the NYPD use the report in taking steps to avoid the “over-policing” of New York City youths of color and make public its use-of-force data, including breaking it down by age and race.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Eurostar’s OH department uses a proactive approach to innovate ideas andprovide a comprehensive range of services covering all aspects of the health ofits staff, by Elizabeth Harvey and Julia Wason After many decades of deliberation, construction for a Channel tunnel beganin 1987. In 1994, Eurostar services started, initially with high speed, passenger-onlytrains between London and Paris and Brussels. Within a short time Eurostarfirmly established its position as leader on the London to Paris and London toBrussels air/rail markets – a position it has maintained and strengthened. In 1999 Eurostar Group was formed to provide a centralised management todetermine commercial strategy and development of the product and service. The service was, and continues to be operated by railways from the threecountries it serves – in the UK, by the private company Eurostar (UK), and inFrance and Belgium by their national railways SNCF and SNCB respectively.Together they provide around 60 services daily. These run from London andAshford in Kent to the European capitals with Lille and Calais Frethun en route.Services also operate direct to Disneyland Paris and to the ski resorts of theFrench Alps. The British operating arm, Eurostar (UK), employs 1,500 people of variousnationalities who work at the international terminals at Waterloo and Ashford,North Pole International Depot, Ashford Call Centre and offices in London. Staff requirements A high percentage of customer service and safety critical staff are requiredto speak more than one language. Train drivers require a minimum of five yearsdriving experience on national railways before joining Eurostar. They then have an extensive training programme including French languagetuition to enable them to drive trains on international routes. A highpercentage of staff work shift systems and travel regularly between Paris andBrussels. There are mandatory medical standards for particular categories ofoccupations both for those employed and for potential employees. Thesecategories include drivers, train managers, engineering staff, and all otheremployees who work in safety critical positions. Background of the OH service The occupational health service is managed as a job share between theauthors who both have 15 years experience in occupational health, and both ofwhom have worked within commercial, educational, and railway environments. Theyare used to working with a high degree of autonomy within a safety criticalbusiness and have found sharing the job to be beneficial in many ways, such aslearning from each other’s strengths and solving problems by encouraging eachother to think laterally. As Savage puts it, “Good communication skillsare fundamental to successful job sharing”1. Other key elements are to plan and organise time and workload effectivelythrough handover procedures, to be flexible and to agree and present a unitedview on issues. They provide peer supervision to each other on a day-to-day basis andacknowledge the need to obtain independent supervision to enhance theirprofessional development and practice. To this end they attend clinicalsupervision on a monthly basis. Within the framework of Eurostar (UK) human resources the aim is to providean occupational health service for all employees that attains the highestprofessional standards possible and where there is a commitment to bestpractice in occupational health nursing. In order to achieve this aim acomprehensive range of OH services has been developed covering all issuesrelating to the health of the employee. Objectives The Eurostar (UK) business objectives are to maintain and improve safetystandards and the service it delivers to customers; to increase passengerrevenue and reduce operating costs, and to help employees achieve improvedperformance. With clear business objectives the role of occupational health can betailored to the business needs. As Artus and colleagues state, “Theobjective of occupational health nursing practitioners is to contribute to thebottom line financial performance of the companyÉ through the protection andpromotion of the most costly elements in an organisation – theemployees”2. The railway environment Railways are a high hazard environment. Employees may witness fatalitiesfrom suicides, and assaults, both verbal and physical, are a feature of theindustry. Public transport workers are therefore in a high risk group3. Employees may be involved in a distressing incident and the company aims toensure that if they are exposed to a traumatic incident they are offered theopportunity to talk to the occupational health manager for a critical incidentdebriefing. Employees are offered an appointment 24-72 hours after an incident.A company leaflet designed by the occupational health managers onpost-traumatic stress is given to employees who have experienced a traumaticevent to inform them of how they may feel and where to seek further support ifnecessary. Employees may also be referred to GPs or counsellors trained intraumatic stress when necessary. Eurostar employees were closely involved in the rescue following thePaddington/Ladbrooke Grove disaster on 5 October 1999 when two trains collided.This occurred on the main line track adjacent to Eurostar’s engineering depotwhere 200 people were working. Eurostar employees were some of the first at thescene and worked alongside the emergency services to free passengers from thetrains. At the time almost all employees were affected in some way. Theoccupational health department conducted a series of debriefings for staffduring this period and also on the first anniversary of the crash. The development of the OH service The Paddington/Ladbroke Grove incident raised the profile of the role ofoccupational health and the contribution it can make to a company, andhighlighted mental health as an important factor which could form the basis forfurther research. It is not anticipated that Eurostar (UK) Ltd will employ anabove average number of people with mental health problems, but it isacknowledged that mental health is becoming one of the main contributory causesof sickness absence in industry4. It has been recognised that within the functions of the company, employeesare exposed to different potential health risks, such as the effects of shiftworking, location, working away from home and working directly with the generalpublic, who can be verbally and physically aggressive3. Also, as previouslyillustrated, employees may witness a critical incident resulting in fatalities.Stress management programmes including workshops had been offered to managersand employees for several years and although these had always been wellreceived they were not necessarily addressing any fundamental organisationalstress factors. To be able to introduce a proactive programme, an assessment of the actualsituation was necessary and independent occupational psychologists werecommissioned to carry out an occupational health well being audit. Well-being audit The aim of the audit was to identify the extent of stress and causes ofstress within the company. Initially only the safety critical sections of thebusiness were to take part. But if a clear assessment was to be achieved theaudit needed to be wider and include such areas as the call centre in Ashfordwhere exposure to stress was becoming more recognised. The OH managers and the occupational psychologist agreed a methodology andthe researchers designed a questionnaire specific to Eurostar (UK) and met withfocus groups. A summary of the findings together with the researchers’ recommendationswere presented within 12 weeks and from this a structured action plan wasformulated for the company. This included company objectives together withaction points for the occupational health department. This audit provided the opportunity to develop the OH service and introducehealth programmes designed specifically to meet the needs and tasks of people’sjobs, location and shifts. Action points The key areas which were developed as a consequence of this audit haveincluded relaunching the occupational health service, developing andimplementing a back care programme, introducing lifestyle assessments andoffering eye tests for customer service employees. The fundamental areas of work, which include managing medical and EAP(employee assistance programme) contracts, health referrals, critical incidentstress debriefing and DSE awareness training, remain a core part of the OHmanager’s function. With the implementation of specific health programmes theOH service now provides employees with readily available specialist support andinformation. Conclusion Occupational health managers have found that working within a proactiveenvironment allows innovative ideas to develop. However, it is necessary tocollect and collate data of all activities to an agreed time scale and presentthese in a format familiar to the organisation. To provide a cost-effective occupational health service it is necessary – To identify the need, justify the reason and reference this to businessneed – Focus specifically on key functions of the business but not forgettingother employees – Confirm clear objectives and time scales – Carry out regular occupational health service audits both of a qualitativeand quantitative nature including clinical audits – Work to set OH protocols to provided the tool for audit References 1.
