The main Payroll Giving benefits reported are: Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Improves company image (61%)Enhances community involvement programmes (58%)Supports employee volunteering (40%)Boosts staff morale (34%)Improves staff recruitment and retention (27%)The Giving Campaign says that the report also punctured some of the myths surrounding Payroll Giving. For example, the difficulties of setting up and running programmes emerged as a barrier for only a small proportion of companies. Four in five (79%) businesses found it simple to run Payroll Giving, with only 8% experiencing any difficulties.The survey was conducted by Ashridge Centre for Business in Society, and features case studies of a number of FTSE 250 companies and the Payroll Giving Schemes they offer.In 2001, £72.5 million was raised for charities through Payroll Givingalone with 1,000 companies launching new schemes in their offices. Highprofile companies making a success of Payroll Giving include Royal Bank ofScotland Group, Rolls-Royce, BT, 3i Plc and Zurich Financial Services.Terri Hathaway, Campaign Manager for Payroll Giving at The Giving Campaign,said: “This research verifies my belief that Payroll Giving provides benefits beyond its effectiveness as a valued income stream to the charity sector. It is good for business, easy to administer and valued by employees.Employers should consider offering Payroll Giving as a good way to raise the company image and boost staff morale and retention, while also doing something good for the community. It’s a win-win.”The Giving Campaign has launched a Payroll Giving Toolkit for organisations looking to offer the scheme to their employees. The toolkit is designed to provide large companies with everything they need to implement and run a successful Payroll Giving campaign, also including highlights from theAshridge research report.last_img read more

She was arrested in August this year and then released on bail in the case registered against her by the Cyber police station, Cyber Crime, Bandra Kurla Complex.In the previous hearing on December 3, the state took an adjournment. AGP YP Yagnik informed the court that the government is engaging another advocate and the matter was listed for hearing on December 8.Petitioner’s counsel Advocate Abhinav Chandrachud referred to the allegations in the FIR and submitted that no offence is made out against Holey. He cited the judgment of the Supreme Court in Manzar Sayeed Khan Vs State of Maharashtra & Anr and submitted that the test laid down by the Supreme Court in Section 153A cases is that the intention to cause disorder must be made out by the words used by the accused and the circumstances in which the accused made the statements. Manzar Khan was a case where the Supreme Court quashed an FIR by reading James Laine’s book. The court held that the High Court was wrong to keep the petition pending, and to ask the police to continue the investigation, Adv Chandrachud said.He further added-“Manzar Khan also relied on Justice Vivian Bose’s words, that the words used by the accused must be judged on the basis of what reasonable, strong-minded and courageous people would think, not on the basis of hypersensitive people or “those who scent danger in every hostile point of view”It also relied on Bilal Kaloo’s case, where the Supreme Court had held that Section 153A requires that the accused must refer to two communities. In our case, the petitioner has not even referred to one community, let alone two communities in the FIR”Adv Chandrachud also cited a judgment of the Bombay High Court in Joseph Bain D’Souza And Another vs State Of Maharashtra And Others, in which the court was considering fiery and incendiary editorials written in the “Saamna” newspaper, the mouthpiece of the Shiv Sena. After the demolition of the Babri masjid in Ayodhya, and the Hindu-Muslim riots in Mumbai, the Saamna had written editorials which were quite extreme, using words like “crush the traitors”, Chandrachud said.”The Bombay High Court held that the Saamna had not referred to all Muslims as traitors but only anti-national Muslims as traitors. I ask the court to compare what the Saamna had written with what the petitioner had said. The petitioners’ words, by comparison, were innocuous. The High Court in Joseph Bain’s case had refused to ask the police to register an FIR u/s 153A against the Saamna” Chandrachud argued.The bench then sought to view the video posted by Suniana Holey in Twitter to be shown to them again.Senior Advocate Manoj Mohite appeared on behalf of the State and submitted that the said video is regarding thousands of people gathering near Bandra railway station. He submitted that people gathered there were saying that “Allah dekh lega” and someone else said “Ye Allah ka nahi, Modi ka kiya hai.” If the video had been shown in its entirety it would not have been a problem however in the video posted by the petitioner it was not, Sr Adv Mohite said.Mumbai police’s social media department found something fishy in the petitioner’s tweet and registered an FIR. However, three other FIRs were registered on the same day pertaining to the said gathering, Mohite argued. The said gathering of thousands outside Bandra station was caused as a rumour was spread at the peak of the nationwide lockdown that trains from Mumbai will be starting for migrants. Finally, Adv Chandrachud relied upon the judgment in Rajaram Shankar Patwardhan vs The State Of Maharashtra And Anr in support of his submissions. He said that Holey merely posted a video on her twitter handle which consisted of a certain community but she did not say anything about the particular community.Thereafter, the bench asked Dr.Chandrachud to continue his submissions in the next hearing.Just before rising Justice Shinde asked-“How many democracies are there in the world? In other democracies, how are such tweets treated?”These countries take a stand on hate tweets, Sr Adv Manoj Mohite said.Thereafter, the bench asked the counsels for both the State and the petitioner to assist them on this issue in the next hearing which is December 14, 2020.Next Storylast_img read more

Can you not challenge the Ordinance in the High Court?”, asked Justice Rastogi.Advocate Mukesh Kumar Sharma, for the petitioners, pressed that after judgment dated September 2, 2019 in Prem Singh, a contempt petition has been moved before the top court by some of the petitioners on which notice has also come to be issued. Mr. Sharma also pointed out that on Wednesday, another bench of Justices Abdul Nazeer and K. M. Joseph has issued notice on the petition by the UP Ground Water Department Non Gazetted Employees’ Association to examine the challenge to the validity of the Ordinance of 2020 which was passed on October 21 last year.”What is the proof that you were recruited as work-charged employees between this and this date?”, asked Justice Saran from Mr. Sharma.In another matter of a 72-year old petitioner seeking his pension, though without challenging the Ordinance, which was heard simultaneously (Mohd. Sayeed v. State of UP), Justice Saran said , “Whether the service record is manufactured or not, we can’t see under 32. You may go to the High Court, the Labour Court or the Civil Court. We can’t take evidence under 32″Ultimately, the bench dismissed the plea of the 159 petitioners challenging the Ordinance, with liberty to approach the appropriate alternative forum.Advocate Sanpreet Singh appeared in this matter.Dealing with right to pension for thousands of work charged employees regularised at fag end of their services, the Supreme Court, in a judgement of three judges bench delivered by Justice Arun Misra with Justice Nazeer and Justice MR Shah (Prem Singh v. State of UP; 2019), set aside the relevant rules and read down the provisions for computation of qualifying service for pension and held that the period of service by the work charged employees in state of UP must be counted towards qualifying service for pension.However, by means of the impugned Ordinance, the government has provided that “qualifying service” shall include service rendered on a temporary or permanent post in accordance with the provisions of the service rules prescribed by the government for the post. The Ordinance also nullifies any judgement, degree or order of the court by providing a non-obstante clause. Consequently, because the work charge employees are not employed against any temporary or permanent post in accordance with the provisions of the service rules prescribed by the government for the post, such services shall not form part of ‘qualifying services’.The plea by the 159 petitioners also challenged the constitutional validity of Rule 3(8) of the Uttar Pradesh Retirement Benefit Rules 1961, which was read down by the three-judge bench on 2019 in Prem Singh. ‘Qualifying Services’, for the purpose of the said Rule, meant service which qualifies for pension in accordance with the provisions of Article 368 of the Civil Service Regulations. The Proviso to the Rule stipulated that “continuous temporary or officiating service under the Government of Uttar Pradesh followed without interruptions by confirmation in the same or any other post shall qualify except–(i) periods of temporary or officiating service in non- pensionable establishment; (ii) periods of service in work charged establishment; and (iii) periods of service in a post paid from contingencies, shall also count as qualifying service”The operative portion of the 2019 Judgment provides: “36. In view of reading down Rule 3(8) of the U.P. Retirement Benefits Rules, 1961, we hold that services rendered in the work-charged establishment shall be treated as qualifying service under the aforesaid rule for grant of pension. The arrears of pension shall be confined to three years only before the date of the order. Let the admissible benefits be paid accordingly within three months. Resultantly, the appeals filed by the employees are allowed and filed by the State are dismissed”The 159 petitioners submitted that the Rules was framed for the benefit of the Uttar Pradesh government service employees after retirement, to get pension, and that the Ordinance has been enacted only for the purpose to curtail the rights of the employees which have been confirmed by the Supreme court.The petitioned dismissed on Thursday enumerated the following legal question for examination by the court:(i).Whether the Respondents / State government, can over rule / struck down the Judgment of this Hon’ble court by passing framing of Ordinance or made amendment of the Act ?.(ii). Whether the Respondents / State government , not compliance , over rule / struck down of the Judgment of this Hon’ble court by passing framing of Ordinance or amendment of the Act is not attack on the Basic Structure” of the Constitution of India as law laid down by this Hon’ble court in Kesavananda Bharati Sripadagalvaru and ors vs. State of Kerala and Anr reported in 1973 (3) SCC 225 , ?.(iii). Whether the Respondents/State government / Executive, is having power to amend the “BASIC STRUCTRUE” of the Constitution of India by passing framing of Ordinance or amendment of the Act ?.(iv). Whether the Respondents/State government / Executive, is having power to amend / curtail the “FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS” of the citizen / employees enshrine in PART-III of the Constitution of India by passing framing of Ordinance or amendment of the Act ?.(v).

Well, that’s not exactly the… read more Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day “We don’t think of the museum as an art gallery and but, in sense, we are,” Barley said. “Artwork is used to enhance our exhibits – murals, paintings, quilts, pottery, needlework, photography. Artwork is the background for many of our exhibits. It is a big part of the Pioneer Museum of Alabama and people do notice. They often comment, especially about the two murals by Larry Godwin. One is in the Village and the other is the background for museum’s agricultural wing.”Barley said, the Pioneer Museum perhaps has the largest display of Godwin’s paintings.“There might be some place that has more of Larry Godwin’s artwork exhibited but I don’t know about it,” she said. “The museum has the two large murals and he also did the artwork for our Native American wing. We also have one of his large oil paintings. We are extremely fortunate to have his artwork. It greatly enhances our exhibits.”But Godwin’s artwork is not the only artwork featured at the museum.“We have several Mose T. paintings, a couple by Woodi Ishmael, one by Serge Shillabeer and several of Miss Alice Thornton’s paintings,” Barley said.One piece of artwork of which the museum is especially proud is a drawing in progress by Troy folk artist Jean Lake.“That is a real treasure,” Barley said. “There is a painting of Ann Love but it is unsigned.  We have Susan Berry’s artwork. Paintings by Myrtle Seay and one by Albert Anderson.“In the Bass rooms, we have several original pieces by S.C. Hendrick and one painting that can’t be verified but it is thought to have been done by Mary Ann Douglas Bass.Barley said the artwork on display not only enhances the displays, it helps tell the story of days gone by.“Of special interest to me and to a lot of others is a piece by a roving painter,” Barley said. “Roving painters would travel around the country painting portraits for people. Because painting is so time consuming, the roving painters would already have the painting completed except for the facial features. When someone wanted a portrait done, they would paint in that person’s face. That’s fascinating to me.” The quilts on display, the pottery that was molded for kitchen use, the leatherwork that was fashioned for saddles and harnesses, the carved wooden spoons, bowls and well buckets, the handmade baskets, the handmade aprons and many items that were forged at the hands of blacksmiths – art it was; art it is.  So, the Pioneer Museum is an art gallery, an unexpected art gallery but one well worth the visit. Artwork can be found in often unexpected places and the Pioneer Museum is one of those places.Kari Barley, museum director, said the museum is first and foremost a museum of pioneer history.“We take great pride in our museum,” Barley said. “The Pioneer Museum of Alabama features the main building that includes the village square and an extensive collection of artifacts, more than 18,000.  On the grounds, we have 22 historic structures, an amphitheater, a walking trail and a wetlands overlook.”And one thing that is often overlooked when generalizing about the pioneer museum is its art collection.

This means, its results show, that it has an extraordinary profit margin of 75.8%.The company says the increase in revenue is largely down to agents buying more of its products, data and services.“As the industry becomes more digital our software has become even more valuable to our customers with 90% of our Agency members making use of it each month,” says Rightmove’s CEO Peter Brooks-Johnson (pictured).Peter also reveals in the results that the company has been concentrating on renters over the past year, which is not surprising given the sluggish sales market and the decrease in ownership in recent years.Rightmove’s shareholders will also be happy – the cash rich company, which has also been buying back its share regularly throughout 2017, paid dividends totalling £140.4m last year, up from £131.3m in 2016.Rightmove’s site traffic also continues to run at full tilt – its site was visited 1.5 billion times last year, which equates to 25 times visits to its site a year for every person in the UK.The portal also claims to have a 73% market share of traffic on computers and a 79% share among people using mobile phones.At the board level, Rightmove’s recent appointment of Numis Securities’ Head of Media Lorna Tilbian as a non-exec director brings its female board representation to 50% both at exec and non-exec levels.Following today’s results, Rightmove’ share price this morning rose by nearly 2.7%Read the company’s full results.Read more about Rightmove.Rightmove Peter Brooks-Johnson 2017 results February 23, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

first_imgA 14-year-old girl was abducted by two men on her way to school in Oxford yesterday morning and raped, police believe.It is believed the victim was approached by a man in the area of Marston Ferry Road and Banbury Road at 8:25am, before being pulled into a car where another man was waiting. She was found about three hours later in Marston, where she knocked on a door in Cavendish and an ambulance was called. The victim is now in the care of specialist officers.Detective Superintendent Chris Ward spoke today at a press conference, in which he stressed that the police was doing all it could to catch those responsible as quickly as possible, and that the silver Volkswagen hatchback used in the abduction was “key” to the investigation.“As a parent myself I know how difficult this is for people and how shocking it is,” he said.“We have stepped up patrols in the area and there will be a very visible police presence whilst the investigation continues. We are treating this investigation with an utmost priority and every effort is being made to identify and apprehend the offenders.”Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Simon Steel said: “We are in the early stages of this investigation and we are carrying out extensive enquiries, but I would appreciate the public’s help in this very serious incident.“This happened in what would have been a very busy area at this time of the day and I appeal to anybody who was in that area and saw an incident which matches the above report to call police immediately.“It is possible you may have witness this incident and may not have realised the severity of the situation.”It is not known which school the girl attends, but some local schools have urged children to walk to school in groups, or to travel with an adult where possible.Anyone who has any information is asked to call police on 101 and quote reference number URN 1631 28/09/16.last_img read more
