The respondent, Mr Stephen Barker, had been employed by the appellant, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, for a number of years before being made redundant in March 2009 as a result of the bank restructuring the Corporation Financial Services (“CFS”) teams throughout the bank. He was informed that his employment with the bank would be terminated if he wasn’t redeployed within four weeks, but in the meantime had to turn in keys, mobile phone, and his access to his company email account, voicemail, and intranet was cut off and as such he did not receive any of the numerous emails that were sent to him about different openings for redeployment. His employment with the bank was terminated after the four week (plus an extra week for being over the
Yes, I believe Ms. Fortin was a victim of union animus because her employer were not big supporter of unions. Few months prior to her dismissal, Ms. Fortin appeared on a union flyer; consequently, the relationship between Ms. Fortin and her employer were not the same. In addition, Ms. Fortin attended a hearing concerning unions representing her workplace. When she returned to work that day, her boss called her into the office and gave her a disciplinary warning. Furthermore, two days later Ms. Fortin received four additional disciplinary actions. Her supervisor claimed that customers said they received poor customer service from Ms. Fortin. In 1994, the company decided to restructured its company finance and a new manager took over Ms. Fortin’s department. Staff reduction was part of the change; consequently, Ms. Fortin was one of the first employee to get laid off. Unfortunately, when the new supervisor decided to laid off Ms. Fortin, she had no prior knowledge of Ms. Fortin’s union activity. For this reason, the court should uphold the supervisor decision. Her supervisor allegedly laid her off because of her poor performance evaluation and disciplinary actions that Ms. Fortin had in her file.
In this paper I will describe the criteria and strategies for termination of case management. I will also discuss how independent care will help in continued client growth. The process focuses on discontinuing case management when the client transitions to the highest level of function, the best possible outcome has been attained, or the needs/desires of the client change.
In the Oubre v. Entergy Operations, Inc. Case, Dolores Oubre the plaintiff was a scheduler at power plant in Killona, Louisiana, which is run by Entergy Operations, Inc. (the defendant). In 1994, Oubre’s employer gave her two options: she can either improve her job performance or accept a severance pay. While accepting the severance package, Oubre signed a document that released her employer Entergy of all claims. Although the employer Entergy Operations was released of all claims, it failed to meet specific standards or requirements for a release under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), as decided or set forth in the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA). In procuring the release, Entergy failed to comply in at least three respects with the requirements for a release under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, as set forth in the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act: It did not (1) give Oubre enough time to consider her options, (2) give her seven days to change her mind, or (3) make specific reference to ADEA claims (Twomey, 2013, p. 548). After receiving her last severance payment, Oubre filed a lawsuit against Entergy claiming constructive discharge based on her age which is clearly a fail to comply with the ADEA as well as the state law. The defendant Entergy claimed or argued that since Oubre failed to give back the
The district court granted the defendant’s motion for summary judgment on the plaintiff’s disability claim. The appellant’s essential accommodation claim went to trial, but court excluded evidence regarding disability. The plaintiff is not estopped by her SSDI and long term disability claims. However, the issue should have been decided by the jury. The court foreclosed to grant the plaintiff was not a qualified individual.

Many have heard of the American Dream. It is the idea by which freedom means that one is afforded the opportunity for prosperity and success reached by hard work in a culture with few barriers. People from all over the world aspire to come to America and live this dream, the American Dream. Millions of immigrants legally enter this county in pursuit of the aforementioned dream; however, each year half a million immigrants enter this country unlawfully (Immigration Reform. 2006. P5). Consequently, millions undocumented workers have entered the American workforce. Most of the blame for the steady rise of undocumented workers goes to U.S. employers, not those seeking a better life. It is due to the demand for low-paid workers, especially in certain

Flik Int'l Corp. the plaintiff, a former employee, claimed that the defendant, former employer, never informed her of the location change for her job. Sabatino v. Flik Int'l Corp. 286 F.

However, the court held that the plaintiff exceeded the allotted time given for maternity leave and failed to present any triable issues of fact, therefore defendant’s summary judgment motion on the FMLA violation of failure to reinstate is granted. Id. at
Texas has its own laws for employment discrimination but employers who abide by the federal statute will be safe under the Texas state law as well. The reason for this is that the Texas Labor Code Anti-Discrimination Provisions are parallel with the Federal Discrimination guidelines. However, there is a trend throughout cities and counties with America that allow these local municipalities to have their own ordinances. In Texas, local government can and sometimes do establish their own anti-discrimination rules. In the city of Austin, several city ordinances make it unlawful to deny access to public accommodation or discriminate in employment on the basis

The plaintiff is a 48-years old assistant store manager considered to have worked for the company for 17-years. He got denied a promotion to the store manager’s position on various occasions. Some of the younger employees he had trained got promoted instead. Wal-Mart, therefore, said that he didn’t receive the promotions as he had received performance progress coaching in the past year and the company policies didn’t allow an employee’s promotion with any effective coaching in his files (Gould IV, 2013)

Alka found it easy selecting the most rewarding parts of being a parent. “One of the most worthwhile parts of being a parent is definitely watching my children grow and learn. There is no greater joy than watching my son and daughter grow into better human beings.” She stated. Alka said that she feels pleasure when she assists her children in learning a new skill and watching them finally grasp it. These skills range from simple tasks, like her children learning how to ride a bike, and tying their shoes to complicated tasks like solving an algebra equation. “The pride you feel as your children grow older and succeed at new challenges is quite rewarding”. Alka said. She also mentioned that knowing you played a large part in helping to shape a human being is quite satisfying.
