Comments are closed. Employers invited to share views on managing maternityOn 1 Sep 2003 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article The Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) is encouraging employers to sharetheir difficulties in managing pregnancy, as part of an investigation intomaternity-related discrimination launched this month. The EOC says the investigation, which has backing from the European SocialFund, has been launched in response to the fact that its helpline has receivedmore enquiries about this than any other sex discrimination issue. It will be guided by an external advisory group including employer representatives,and chaired by Fiona Cannon, head of equality at Lloyds TSB. Research released for the launch suggests that unfair treatment of workingpregnant women may be widespread. A survey of 1,200 adults revealed that arounda fifth knew someone who had experienced problems at work because of theirpregnancy, from unpleasant remarks or unfounded criticism, to downgradedappraisals, missed bonuses or being sacked. Cannon said it was vital employers told the EOC about their own difficultiesin managing pregnancy and maternity issues. “For the next 18 months, we will be looking at the situation in detailthrough the eyes of the employer as well as the individual. “To make sure our recommendations tackle this problem, it is vital wefully understand the difficulties faced by some employers and I would like tourge organisations, large and small, to contact the EOC with examples of theproblems they have faced.” The ‘Pregnant and Productive’ investigation will run until February 2005,when the EOC intends to make recommendations to the Secretary of State forTrade and Industry on how to tackle the problem.

Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailAlex Caparros – FIFA/FIFA via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT) began their run in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup with a 13-0 win over Thailand on Tuesday.They stepped onto the field in France as defending World Cup champions after their 2015 win in Canada, but are joined by many of their international competitors in a crusade for gender equity.On the fieldThe U.S.’s first game came on the fifth day of the tournament, after many other nations have already begun competition in the Group Phase of the tournament — where teams are split into six groups to play round-robin style.The U.S. is in Group F, which also includes Thailand, Chile and Sweden. The teams with the best records in the Group Phase go on to the Knockout Phase, starting June 22, which is a single-elimination round to find the champion.After Tuesday’s win over Thailand, the USWNT’s second match will be at 12 p.m. ET, Sunday, June 16, at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris against Chile, who they beat twice in the 2018 CONCACAF Women’s Championship, securing themselves a place at this World Cup.Off the fieldOff the field, the USWNT made headlines in March when players sued the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) — the sport’s governing body — for gender discrimination, including unequal pay and resources.The suit named the 28 members of the 2015 World Cup team as plaintiffs, including stars Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe and Carli Lloyd, who are all back to compete in this year’s World Cup.“We feel a responsibility not only to stand up for what we know we deserve as athletes, but also for what we know is right – on behalf of our teammates, future teammates, fellow women athletes, and women all around the world,” Rapinoe said in a statement at the time.Last month, USSF hit back at the lawsuit, denying the allegations in a response. The group said “U.S. Soccer’s challenged pay practices are not based on sex” and that pay differences were based on “differences in the aggregate revenue generated by the different teams” as well as other factors, according to their response.“We look forward to a trial next year after the World Cup,” the players said in a statement after the USSF’s response was filed.Household namesIn their lawsuit, the players cited that the U.S. Men’s National Team players get paid more, even though they are less successful. While the U.S. women are entering this World Cup as defending champions, the U.S. men did not qualify for last year’s FIFA World Cup.The women’s team is more successful on the field, and their profile is also growing. The 2015 Women’s World Cup final between the U.S. and Japan became the most-watched soccer match in U.S. history, per US Soccer.In a more cultural show of their growing profile, Morgan scored a cover on this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, while Rapinoe, Abby Dahlkemper and Crystal Dunn were also photographed in the issue. In doing so, Rapinoe became the first openly gay woman to pose for the Swimsuit issue.Meanwhile, as the tournament was about to start, several players launched a new company, re-inc, and dropped a T-shirt with it, as reported by The New York Times. USWNT forward Christen Press is the chief executive, former USWNT defender Meghan Klingenberg is president, USWNT forward Tobin Heath is chief innovation officer and Rapinoe is the chief branding officer.“We are four World Cup champions whose time on the USWNT has taught us how to fight,” the re-inc website reads. “For greatness. For our identities. For our own value.”On the field, the players are wearing new kits made by Nike. Nike, in keeping with its ad campaigns around breaking boundaries and pushing for equality, has debuted new ads featuring players like Morgan and Mallory Pugh.After Sunday’s match against Chile, the USWNT compete against Sweden on June 20 at 3 p.m. EST. Each match will be airing on Fox and Telemundo.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

UE recognized nationally in both pollsFollowing last Tuesday’s 67-64 win at top-ranked Kentucky, the University of Evansville men’s basketball team and head coach Walter McCarty received several accolades on Monday.The Purple Aces are on the verge of being ranked for the first time in their Division I history. In Monday’s Associated Press Top 25 Poll, Evansville received 43 votes, ranking 30th on the list. UE also garnered 8 votes in the Coaches Poll, which put them at 39th.Evansville’s day got started on a high note with the squad being named the “Team of the Week” by March Madness digital reporter, analyst and host Andy Katz. Following UE’s win over the Wildcats, Coach McCarty joined Katz for an interview that recapped the game.Speaking of Coach McCarty – he was named the HoopDirt.com Division I Coach of the Week presented by Just Play Solutions. With the honor, McCarty is now eligible to receive the HoopDirt.com National Coach of the Year award, which will be announced at the conclusion of the season. The 2019-20 season marks the fifth year that HoopDirt.com has given out weekly and yearly awards.Coach McCarty has been making headlines in the early season, as his Evansville squad pulled off what could be the upset of the year on the road against top-ranked Kentucky. The Aces opened the season with a home victory over Ball State before heading to Lexington on Tuesday to take on McCarty’s alma mater, who had moved into the #1 spot in the country just a day prior.When all was said and done, the Purple Aces had shocked the college basketball world, coming away with a 67-64 win. The upset marked the first time in program history that Evansville had beaten the top-ranked team in the country, and snapped Kentucky’s 52 game home winning streak over unranked non-conference opponents. After an 89-71 win over IU-Kokomo on Thursday, Coach McCarty and the Aces are sitting at 3-0 on the season as they await a home matchup with SMU tonight.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
× HOBOKEN- At a roughly five-hour meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 1, the Hoboken City council unanimously passed a resolution authorizing the city to use eminent domain “if necessary” to acquire land for a proposed and long awaited Southwest Park.The city would like to use one acre of land that currently sits empty, but is owned by Academy bus. The company has valued the property at $13 million in the past.The city has used eminent domain in the past to acquire its first acre of land for the 4th Ward park for $4.5 million which the city broke ground on last summer.Before casting his yes vote to approve of eminent domain as a negotiation tool, Councilman Michael Russo urged the mayor to “take that tool and use it wisely.”
