This house is like a funnel of light, space and sea views. The location is the west coast of the Baltic island of Öland. The white concrete box is “corsetted” in the middle, creating slightly sheared wall and roof angles. This gives the house both its direction and character, while also marking the difference between the rear private two-storey bedroom part and the communal double ceiling-height front part.

Voice of dissent cannot be suppressed in a democracy. They had all been elected by the people. Can they not express their dissent?”The top court was hearing the petition filed by Speaker CP Joshi against the order passed by the Rajasthan High Court on July 21 directing the Speaker to extend the time to file replies by the MLAs to the disqualification notices till the pronouncement of judgment on July 24.Justice Mishra – In this case, it seems party members can’t raise their own voice against their own party.”Voice of dissent cannot be suppressed.”#RajasthanPoliticalCrisis #RajasthanPolitics @INCIndia @SachinPilot— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) July 23, 2020During the hearing, the bench,also including Justices B R Gavai and Krishna Murari, elaborately quizzed Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal as to whether refusal to attend party meetings can be a ground to issue disqualification notices. Though Sibal repeatedly tried to emphasize that the issue in the case was whether the High Court had power to issue a direction against the Speaker at an interim stage, the debates veered towards if refusal to attend party meetings could attract disqualification.In response to the comment of Justice Mishra regarding suppression of dissent, Sibal submitted that they ought to voice their opinion within the party.”If the MLAs have to voice their dissent, they will have to the party meeting”, he said. Sibal further highlighted that the rebel MLAs have not yet exercised their option of submitting replies before the Speaker.”I, as a constitutional authority, sought a reply. Why did they not reply?They are giving interviews to TV channels. They say they want to voice their opinion. Let them come to the party meeting and voice their opinion. They need to state that”, Sibal said.The bench ultimately observed that the matter involved “serious questions related to democracy”, and adjourned the hearing till Monday.However, the bench refused to the stay the proceedings in Rajasthan HC, which is scheduled to pronounce judgment tomorrow on the petition filed by Sachin Pilot camp against the Speaker’s notices.The SC clarified that the judgment to be passed by the High Court will be subject to the orders of Supreme Court.It was on July 14 that the Speaker, Dr C P Joshi, served the notices on the 19 dissident MLAs, including Pilot, amid their rebellion against Chief Minister, Ashok Gehlot. They were initially given time till 1 PM, July 17 to submit the replies. Meanwhile, the 19 MLAs approached the High Court on July 16, challenging the Speaker’s action. The High Court started hearing the matter on July 17, and in view of the pendency of the proceedings, the Speaker had extended the time for reply till 5.30 pm on July 21. On July 21, the HC bench reserved the judgment for July 24, after hearing Senior Advocates Harish Salve and Mukul Rohatgi for the rebel MLAs, Senior Advocate Dr AM Singhvi for the Speaker, and Senior Advocate Devadatt Kamat for the Congress Whip.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Where, when and how?

first_img Comments are closed. Where, when and how?On 24 Sep 2002 in Personnel Today What needs to be considered when choosing and implementing a flexiblebenefits scheme?Organisations wishing to introduce flexible benefits will usually needsignificant help from an external consultancy at some stage in the process ofdeveloping and implementing a programme. However, there are some key stagesthat all organisations will need to consider. The company needs to think through the business reasons for starting a‘flex’ scheme: what is it trying to achieve? For example, some companies lookto flex to help solve problems in recruitment and retention. Others see it aspart of a culture change shift to encourage greater individuality. Some may bedriven by potential future cost control. Some may even just like the concept inprinciple, but need to find out more about it. Chad Daugherty, head of flexible reward design at Hewitt Bacon and Woodrow,suggests setting up a feasibility study to look into wider business issuesbefore implementing a flex scheme. He says: “You first need to understandat a high level how a flex plan will fit with your business strategy and rewardphilosophy.” Benefits and savings A typical feasibility study undertaken by Hewitt Bacon and Woodrow will lookat the technology available to individuals within the organisation, thecommunication strategy used and the other resources available internally. Costsrelated to the design, setting up and running the administration andcommunicating the plan to staff will be estimated. The costs can then be set against potential benefits. These include ‘harder’benefits such as tax and National Insurance savings, or savings fromcost-effective reward harmonisation using flex following a merger oroutsourcing deal, for instance. In addition to these are benefits such asreduced staff turnover or the ability to more easily attract and recruit thatare harder to quantify. Daugherty finds the harder, known savings are of more influence when theproposal is presented to finance directors. But with greater experience of theimpact of schemes, he is more able to show the financial impact of softerbenefits. For instance, he says that “with our experience we can workthrough examples of the type of savings that a 1 per cent reduction in staffturnover can lead to”. When designing a new flex plan employers often start by examining theexisting benefits package on offer, and working out which benefits are core –perhaps a standard level of life assurance – and which ones are to be ‘flexed’.As seen in the list on page 5, there are a wide range of benefits that can comeunder the flex scheme. Some may be seen as suitable only for particular rolesor levels of seniority – company cars, for instance. Particular benefits are more popular than others. Hewitt Bacon and Woodrowfinds that flexible holiday entitlement is usually very popular with employees.Detailed development of the scheme throws up a range of issues – decidingwhat impact changes will have on existing maternity or sick leave policies,determining how often rules can be changed, and so on. Consultants can advise on additional areas, including accessing externalfunding – for example the Department of Trade and Industry makes fundsavailable for companies implementing work-life balance initiatives – andensuring legal compliance. The company must decide how to operate the ongoing scheme – whether tooutsource the administration or to perform it in-house, and depending on thischoice, what short- and long-term additional resources will be required. Developing key messages for employees at an early stage allows acommunications plan to be developed. This will often fit within the existingcommunications strategy of the company, although additional techniques may berequired. Tell the employers about it Introducing a flexible benefits plan, managed properly, can send out apowerful message to employees that they are valued and the introduction of theplan can also be communicated externally to aid recruitment and position thecompany as innovative and exciting. How long will it take to introduce a new scheme? In Daugherty’s experienceusually upwards of eight months and up to 15 months for more complex plans.This depends on a number of factors, how complex the scheme is, the variationin terms and conditions across the company, the availability of clean data, thesystems and processes that need to be implemented, and the resources availablefrom the organisation including the degree of involvement from seniormanagement.

Flight Observer Lt Laura Cambrook said:“The flying was incredible, a bit bumpy at times but it’s training that you just can’t get back home in the UK.” She and her fellow fliers squeezed in just shy of 18 hours flying in four days.“It gave us a great opportunity for us to fine tune our flying skills and the hosting from the Greek Air Force was second-to-none,” said Flight Commander Lt Cdr Paul Ellerton, of 815 NAS.“It’s a well-trodden path for Flights passing through the Med – but it’s still great training, especially for my first-tour aircrew who gained valuable experience from the planning through to the execution of the detachment.” Dragon is in the opening stages of a six-month deployment east of Suez, where she’ll take over from frigate HMS Monmouth, maintaining the RN’s permanent presence in the Gulf to work with UK allies in the region and keep the seaways safe.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, April 16, 2013; Image: Royal Navy View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Terrorists View post tag: Defence View post tag: Tackling Back to overview,Home naval-today HMS Dragon Ready for Tackling Pirates and Terrorists in Indian Ocean and Gulf last_img read more

Students should return for Hilary despite Tier 4 announcement

first_imgOxford’s university-wide guidance encourages UK students to arrive at least four days before the start of their in-person teaching, in order to allow individuals to take two lateral flow tests. Until students have received two negative results they are not permitted to take part in face to face teaching or sport.  The University confirmed earlier in the month that teaching would start in two separate waves, with most practical courses beginning at their advertised start date, and most other subjects beginning in-person teaching from Monday 25th January. Any content before this date will be delivered in an online format. Colleges have subsequently confirmed their individual arrangements for students’ return in Hilary Term, which can be found here. Residency requirements will remain in place for Hilary Term apart from where a specific exemption is in place, in order to ensure that students can “take full advantage of Oxford life”. However, individuals concerned about returning to Oxford can make an application to the Proctors requesting that be given dispensation to study remotely. Students are expected to return for Hilary term despite Oxford being moved into tier 4, the University has announced. “The move to Tier 4 may impact some services provided by the University and colleges. We continue to monitor the local and national situation, and will consider the detailed implications of the change in alert level. Further information will be provided as soon as possible”. “We are committed to providing a good mix of in-person teaching and online support – building on our experiences in Michaelmas term. “Under Tier 4, universities and workplaces will remain open. We therefore expect teaching and research to continue at the University in the New Year, and for students to return for Hilary term broadly in line with the arrangements communicated at the end of Michaelmas term. Following the government’s announcement, an update on the University’s website said: “We are looking forward to welcoming students back to Oxford in Hilary term. We want to help make the most of your Oxford experience, within the constraints of the pandemic. Image: Sara Price / Pixabay. The statement comes following the news that Oxford will be placed under tier 4 from Boxing Day. This means that all non-essential retail must close, and individuals are only permitted to meet one other person from outside their household at a time, in an outdoor public space. The measures have been brought in after two new mutations of coronavirus have been identified, which increase the infectiousness of the disease.  The university is also recommending that a third test be taken ten days after arrival in Oxford, in order to identify anyone who has been infected after arriving at the university. Meanwhile, international students have been told to try and arrive in time to fulfill any quarantine requirements before the start of face to face teaching for their course.last_img read more
