Employers must prepare for Living Wage, says BIS

first_imgUK bosses have been urged to better prepare for the National Living Wage (NLW) and avoid potential legal action by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) as it emerged only 45% of employers had updated their payrolls.The survey of 1,000 UK businesses for the BIS also revealed only 39% had communicated the upcoming changes to staff and 29% looked online for information on the NLW, which will see wages for the over-25s rise to at least £7.20 per hour on 1 April 2016.The BIS urged businesses to adopt a four-point plan to prepare for the changes: find out the correct rate of pay; determine who will be eligible for the pay rise; update the payroll in time for 1 April; and inform staff as soon as possible.The survey’s findings came despite its suggesting a generally positive attitude towards the NLW, with 93% of bosses saying it was a good idea and 88% believing it would make staff more productive.Business Minister Nick Boles said: “The government’s new National Living Wage will provide a direct boost to over two-and-a-half million workers in the UK – rewarding and providing security for working people.“I am urging businesses to get ready now to pay the new £7.20 rate from 1 April 2016. With just under four months left, there are some easy steps employers can take to make sure they are ready.“By taking these measures, companies will be able to properly reward their staff and avoid falling foul of the law when it takes effect.”Some companies, including Costa Coffee and Speciality Breads, have already raised wages ahead of the legislation coming into effect and have applied the change regardless of age.last_img read more

Hosts of 2026 World Cup to be decided in May 2020

first_img1 FIFA World Cup: The decision for 2026 has been put back The hosts of the 2026 World Cup will be decided in May 2020, three years later than originally scheduled because of the corruption scandals that have engulfed FIFA.In an attempt to avoid the recriminations that dogged the 2010 decision to give the 2018 World Cup to Russia and 2022 tournament to Qatar, world football’s governing body will try a four-phase approach for 2026.This will effectively be a year of consultation and then three years of “bid preparation” and evaluation, but a decision on whether to leave the tournament at 32 teams will be made in October 2016.The bidding process was the headline announcement from the first two-day meeting of the new FIFA Council – the successor body to the ExCo – in Mexico City.The consultation phase of the process will run until May 2017 and will look at four main areas: human rights and environmental protection, the ability to exclude bids that do not meet technical requirements, a review of stance on joint bids and whether to increase the World Cup to 40 teams.A decision on the latter, however, is expected by this October, with Europe’s leading clubs already making their displeasure at the idea of expansion clear.Also settled in October will be which confederations can put bids forward, with the current rules only excluding the Asian Football Confederation because Qatar will have hosted the previous World Cup.After the consultation phase, there will be an “enhanced phase for bid preparation” between June 2017 and December 2018, before bid evaluation between January 2019 and February 2020 culminating in the May vote.With bids likely to come from CONCACAF nations Canada, Mexico and the US – perhaps in a combination of two or even three of those nations – as well as interest from Australia and New Zealand, Turkey and Kazakhstan, Morocco and perhaps even England, FIFA will not be short of suitors.But new FIFA president Gianni Infantino knows the organisation cannot afford another decade of the kind of scrutiny that the decision to go to Qatar has brought.Last month, Harvard human rights expert Professor John Ruggie wrote a damning report for FIFA about its failure to make human rights a priority in its decision-making or exert more pressure for change on hosts.Qatar’s slow progress in reforming how it treats and uses migrant workers has reflected very poorly on FIFA.last_img read more

BCCI unlikely to contest ICC decision on MS Dhoni gloves

first_imgSoon after the International Cricket Council (ICC) turned down BCCI’s request to allow MS Dhoni to don an army crest on his wicket-keeping gloves, it has been learned that the Indian Board will not be contesting the world governing body’s stand on the issue.According to sources, the BCCI is unlikely to escalate the matter and will follow the ICC rule-book on the issue while respecting the agreement of the participating nations.Official ICC statement on the Dhoni gloves issue put out a brief while back (@cricketwallah) June 7, 2019The ICC, on their part, issued an official statement on their website stating:”The ICC has responded to the BCCI to confirm the logo displayed by MS Dhoni in the previous match is not permitted to be worn on his wicket-keeping gloves at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019.The regulations for ICC events do not permit any individual message or logo to be displayed on any items of clothing or equipment. In addition to this, the logo also breaches the regulations in relation to what is permitted on wicketkeeper gloves.”After relaying their decision to the BCCI, the ICC is now reportedly writing to the BCCI saying that they can’t allow Dhoni to wear the badge during the World Cup 2019.Earlier, the Indian cricket board wrote to the ICC seeking permission to let Dhoni wear those gloves in India’s next match against Australia at The Oval. However, that request has been turned down by the ICC.advertisementThe ICC responded to BCCI’s letter explaining Dhoni’s act was a breach of clause G1 (personal messages) as well as the logos allowed on WK gloves and as such should not be worn.last_img read more
