Employment Law: Miriam O’Reilly Wins Age Discrimination Case Against the BBC

Miriam O’Reilly has won her age discrimination case against the BBC after she was dropped as presenter of BBC One’s Countryfile.

53-year-old O’Reilly took the Corporation to an employment tribunal over claims that her age was the reason for her dismissal from the rural affairs show, which also let go of three other female presenters in their 40s and 50s.

Ms O’Reilly claimed she was axed from the show in April 2009 because she was -a woman of a certain age-, and furthermore, she claims she was -hounded out- of her other work commitments due to the negative publicity her departure from Countryfile had attracted.

The tribunal heard that a Countryfile producer had said to Ms O’Reilly: -You’re going to have to be careful about those wrinkles when High Definition comes in.- It was also claimed that a Countryfile cameraman had offered Ms O’Reilly a can of black hair dye whilst filming on location in June 2008.

Countryfile bosses insisted that the dismissal of four female presenters, one of them being Ms O’Reilly, was because the show needed a -refreshed- look as it was being moved to a prime-time slot on BBC One.

The tribunal upheld Ms O’Reilly’s claims of age discrimination and victimisation, although her claim for sex discrimination was dismissed. She is now set to receive a six-figure sum in damages from the BBC.

The BBC has apologised to Ms O’Reilly, who had worked for the Corporation for 25 years, in a statement, saying: -We accept the findings of the tribunal and would like to apologise to Miriam. We will be speaking to her.-

The statement also said that the BBC was -committed to fair selection in every aspect of our work-, and that their senior editorial executives would be receiving additional training on appointing TV presenters, as well as producing new guidelines on fair selection.

Good Employment Prospects For Nursing Degree Holders, Guardian Reports

The Guardian newspaper has reported that in 2009 almost 85% of nursing degree graduates found full-time employment, with 94% of those finding jobs as healthcare professionals.

Just over 74% of those nursing degree graduates working in healthcare went straight into nursing, while the rest took other roles supporting the delivery of healthcare, according to the report.

Of the nursing degree graduates who did not enter full-time employment: some opted for extra study, whilst others combined further study with work. Only 1.7 % remained unemployed.

Journalist Angela Foster wrote: Work placements give an insight into what it is like to work in a busy department and the skills needed. And a degree rather than a diploma puts you a step ahead on the employment ladder.

With this apparently high level of employability, particularly in the current economic climate, enrolling on a nursing degree has become an attractive option for many.

Margaret Holbrough, a careers adviser with Graduate Prospects, said:”Nursing graduates are trained to work within the health sector and other related environments with all types of patient, but often specialise in caring for particular types of patient, such as adults, children or people with mental health or learning disabilities.”

In addition to good career prospects, nursing degree students also benefit from a government funded bursary to help them meet the cost of studying.

The University of Southampton is just one higher education institution that is routinely flooded with applications to study for a nursing degree. It was the first university in the country to win accreditation for its Bachelor of Nursing, or BN, nursing degree courses in 2011.

Southamptons employability rates for nursing degree graduates in 2009 were an impressive 8% better than the average national statistic of 85% reported in the Guardian.

How To Receive Free Verification Of A Social Security Number On The Internet

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has created the Social Security Number Verification System (SSNVS), an online system that offers employers free Social Security verification for new employees. Employers can verify the numbers and names employees give to employers match and are correct on their W-2 forms.

To learn more about this free Social Security verification system, keep reading.

The Enumeration Verification System Basics for Employers

Employers can register for the Enumeration Verification System by visiting the SSA’s website at ssa.gov/bso/bsowelcome.htm. From this page, the employer must first register for a username and password. Once registered, they can obtain instant results by searching for employee Social Security numbers.

Why You Should E-Verify All New Hires

E-Verify (formerly known as Basic Pilot) is a free online-based tool that lets employers conduct employment verification checks of new employees with the Social Security Administration and all DHS databases.

Essentially, once a job applicant presents their documents showing both their identity and employment eligibility, an employer has 3 days from the official hiring date to perform an E-Verify check. By using the E-Verify tool, an employer is granted civil and criminal immunity for all the employees it runs through the system in good faith. The legal benefits are massive and it’s a free service.

Though running regular E-Verify checks on all new hires is an essential part of protecting yourself legally, employers must sill be diligent and responsible. A good employer will aggressively hunt down Social Security fraud and potential abuses by checking the origination of certain Social Security numbers and verifying a photo identification.

The Enumeration Verification System for Lenders

Loan companies are also often prey to instances of Social Security number fraud. This system allows lenders to input a loan applicant’s Social Security number and name. After processing the request, they will receive a “no match” or “match” which will show if the Social Security number is correct.

This verification service is run through third-party vendors and is not free. However, it’s a critical tool for verifying identity and preventing fraud.

If you’re searching for free Social Security verification tools, your only option is with the Social Security Administration or through a lender’s vendor. To conduct Social Security number checks, you must be registered with the SSA as an employer and have the proper signed documentation from your new hires.

Jobs Abroad For Couples

Finding the right person takes really hard work. People usually go through a lot of disappointing experiences before they actually get to find the right person for them. Though this is not always the case, most people are really thankful for finally meeting someone they can really connect with. Whatever your story might be, having a successful relationship must be something you are really grateful for, as most people are. However, having a relationship sometimes implies a little work.

First of all, you have to change everything about the way you view things, as I suddenly becomes We. Although that might sound pretty romantic at first, when it comes to more serious decisions in life, that We can sometimes get in the way. Though that might sound awful, most people have to face this situation at least once in their life. For example, if you happen to have a job opportunity that requires some personal sacrifice, you might not be able to take it because you are in a relationship.

How do you include We in every part of your life? Nobody wants to be selfish, but most people end up facing contradictory situations once in a while. On one hand, you need to turn down a job offer that might have presented a great opportunity for your career without hesitation, but on the other hand, you need to think about your future and make your own decision as a person. Nobody wants to regret the decisions they have made because of their partner, as that can be really unhealthy for a relationship.

So, how do you get these sort of situations solved without breaking up the relationship? I mean, you don`t want your relationship to get in the way of your carrier, but you also don`t want your carrier to get in the way of your relationship. The best way to deal with them would be to somehow get them together. If you find a way to make the two parts of your life work together, than you can fully enjoy both of them.

A great way of getting your partner involved on your professional activity is to find a couple job. There is a high demand for couples abroad that work different jobs together. Some couples join different cruises, others go abroad and get different jobs, while others consider being English teachers abroad. Going abroad and working there as a couple can not only guarantee you financial well being, but will also bring you as a couple together.

You will have the opportunity to travel and discover new places together and you will have the same carrier as a common ground. Working for the same goal can bring two people very closely together. Also, being foreigners in another country can do wonders for your connection as a couple. You will be able to really be yourselves, as you will have no one but strangers around you. Why let carriers destroy your relationship, when you can have them work magic on it?
