Legal aid for Scottish staff at tribunals

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Legal aid for Scottish staff at tribunalsOn 28 Nov 2000 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. TheScottish Executive is to grant legal aid for employees to hire solicitors torepresent them in employment tribunal cases. Theprovisions are expected to come into force on 15 January in Scotland, but willnot apply in England or Wales. It isexpected that the move will lead to a considerable increase in the numbers ofcases being brought by employees over issues such as wrongful dismissal, sexdiscrimination and race discrimination.The CBI inScotland called the decision “a chancer’s charter”. CBIScotland’s Allan Hogarth said, “It will only encourage more spurious tribunalcases. If this only applies in Scotland it will put us at a huge disadvantagecompared to businesses down south. This is another reason why many companiesmay decide not to come to Scotland.”Howeverthe move has been seen by lawyers as a pre-emptive strike against potentialchallenges under the European Convention of Human Rights. Lawyersstate that the current tribunal system is itself in breach of Article 6 ofECHR, which entitles everyone to a fair hearing and representation at thathearing.l Seriousdisruption to council services across Scotland is set to continue after thelatest round of talks aimed at resolving the pay dispute ended withoutagreement last week. The number of staff on strike is now 1,300. last_img read more

HNLMS Dolfijn Returns to Den Helder

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today HNLMS Dolfijn Returns to Den Helder View post tag: Den Training & Education View post tag: Helder View post tag: Returns View post tag: Dolfijn View post tag: News by topic After a three-month deployment to the counterpiracy operation in the waters off the Somali coast, the submarine HNLMS Dolfijn returned to Den Helder. With family and friends looking on, a tug brought the Dolfijn and its 55-man crew safely into the naval port.During its deployment, HNLMS Dolfijn thwarted various actions of unsuspecting pirates. It was partly thanks to the submarine that hijackings were prevented, pirates were arrested and 12 hostages were freed. During one incident, the Dolfijn discovered a pirate dhow, a traditional fishing boat, at anchor near a pirate camp. Undetected, the submarine monitored the boat for a prolonged period, during which time the submarine’s crew was able to confirm its suspicions of pirate and hijacking activities. On account of this information, NATO decided to send HDMS Absalon, a Danish naval vessel, to intervene.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , June 7, 2012; Image: Defensiecenter_img View post tag: Naval HNLMS Dolfijn Returns to Den Helder View post tag: HNLMS View post tag: Navy June 7, 2012 Share this articlelast_img read more

USS Coronado arrives in Singapore on 16-month deployment

first_img View post tag: LCS U.S. Navy littoral combat ship USS Coronado arrived in the 7th Fleet area of responsibility (AOR) October 3 while on its maiden deployment to Southeast Asia.The ship departed Hawaii for a 16-month rotational deployment to the 7th Fleet in September after spending a month in port for repairs on the ship’s propulsion plant.Coronado is the first Independence-variant LCS to deploy to the U.S. 7th Fleet as part of an initiative to deploy multiple LCS to the Indo-Asia-Pacific region in just a few years.The Freedom-class LCS variants USS Freedom and USS Fort Worth have previously deployed to the region. Coronado, like Freedom and Fort Worth, will operate from Singapore as a maintenance hub and rotationally deploy crews during the deployment.“Similar to the Freedom and Fort Worth deployments, Coronado will participate in exercises and engagements throughout South and Southeast Asia and beyond,” said Capt. H. B. Le, commodore, Destroyer Squadron 7. “The LCS platform is well suited for this region and provides a unique opportunity for our partner and allied nations to operate alongside one of our navy’s newest and most advanced platforms.”The Independence variant boasts a larger flight deck than the Freedom variant, allowing for expanded aviation operations with regional navies, and has more fuel capacity providing increased operational capabilities.

Sourdough show

first_imgMetfield Bakery uses meat reared on owner Stuart Oetzmann’s own farm to make its lauded pork pies – with the pigs also performing the dual role of handy waste disposal unit, gobbling up the bakery’s leftover bread and vegetables. If mud, pig-like sanitary conditions and hungry, whiffy creatures are your thing too, you could join the 85,000 revellers at this summer’s Download rock festival, or the gargantuan 150,000-capacity Bestival festival on the Isle of White, who will be fed by Metfield’s new travelling bakery.The former wholesale-only bakery will be taking to the road this summer as it branches out into retailing, following successes with markets and online sales. The Dereham-based firm recently designed and commissioned a working mobile organic bakery – a big trailer with a three-deck Mono oven, a spiral mixer, mains pressure hot water and refrigeration – which will also be scooting around local events, horse trials and agricultural shows.The prospect of live bakery theatre has clearly sparked the imagination of event organisers, with Metfield signed up to 20 already. And the projected £100,000 extra sales should easily recoup the branded trailer’s £27,000 price tag within the year. “The fact that we’re probably one of the only people in the country that can pitch up with a mobile organic bakery unlocks plenty of doors for us,” says Oetzmann. “There’s good volume turnover in taking your business to 20,000-200,000 customers on a weekend.”It trialled the concept last year, transporting a generator and the bakery’s own oven to one event – at great cost. The main attraction is the sourdough bread, just three-to-four types of which are baked on the trailer. “Because we have long fermentation times we have more control; we can make it up on a Thursday night and bake it on the Saturday morning,” says Oetzmann.The Norfolk-born ex-chef has a track record of working with big names, including Anthony Worrall Thompson and the Roux Brothers, but is now a-self proclaimed baker. “I’ve converted to being a baker, for sure,” he says. “There are some really good pastry chefs who are passionate about using great ingredients – they’re now discovering bread and making their own personal journeys with it.”Oetzmann’s own journey began in the early 1990s after taking inspiration from 18th-century authors, including Eliza Acton, Hannah Glasse and Elizabeth David. Six years ago, he started his own business with the aim of reviving bygone British baking traditions. He now employs 23 people and turns over £1m.His sourdough starter – a barm, that’s seeded using brewers’ yeast, and fed with rye flour – is used to make 5,000 loaves a week. With sourdough, costs are low and margins high, he insists. “We don’t have to buy in much yeast and we don’t use additives or fats to achieve the kind of textures that bakers years ago would have achieved anyway.” Apart from bread, Metfield makes a series of traditional English tarts, cakes and puddings, including Eccles cakes and the hugely popular – if not entirely lardy – Lardy cake, made with 50% butter. nlast_img read more

US won’t make immigration arrests at virus vaccination sites

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. government says it won’t be making routine immigration enforcement arrests at COVID-19 vaccination sites. In a statement Monday, the Department of Homeland Security says that vaccination sites will be considered “sensitive locations” and generally off limits for enforcement actions. It says arrests would only be carried out under “the most extraordinary of circumstances.” DHS says it encourages everyone, regardless of immigration status, to receive the vaccine when they are eligible under local regulations. The U.S. government previously considered health clinics as well as schools and places of worship as sensitive locations where it would generally not carry out enforcement actions.last_img
