DEBATE: Do we need tighter rules to prevent unpaid internships and improve social mobility?

first_img Opinion But it costs over £1,100 per month to live in London while taking on an internship. Most young people cannot afford to work unpaid, meaning that unpaid internships end up preventing less advantaged young people – those whose parents can’t afford to support them – from getting a foot on the ladder.The problem is that the legal grey area allows employers to offer unpaid internships with impunity for what would otherwise be deemed paid work. That is why the law should be changed so that all internships over four weeks are paid at least the minimum wage (£7 per hour), and preferably the living wage (£9 per hour).Failing to address the problem of unpaid internships means that they will remain a major roadblock to social mobility, and bar less advantaged people from a whole range of careers.Madeline Grant, editorial manager at the Institute of Economic Affairs, says NO.I dislike like the idea of internships being limited to children of the wealthy as much as anyone. But the reality is that internships often have limited value to employers, while feedback, one-on-one mentoring, and industry contacts are extremely useful to the intern. Many young people view work experience as an investment in their future, and make considerable sacrifices to pursue these positions.New rules wouldn’t result in more paid internships, but fewer opportunities overall. Many employers will decide that the costs of offering work experience outweigh the benefits.

The experiences and contacts gained really do help to develop a fledgling career. In a job market already saturated with graduates, this would remove a crucial mechanism for young people at the start of their careers to distinguish themselves in their fields of interest. It would also push employers to select based on academic performance alone, disadvantaging those without top grades.Not all internships are valuable, but nor are unpaid interns “modern slaves” or helpless victims of unscrupulous employers, as campaigners imply.

The decision is another blow to Allergan (AGN), which last fall famously transferred patent rights to one of its biggest-selling medicines to the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe in hopes of thwarting generic competition.In reaching its decision, the court upheld a ruling issued earlier this year by the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board, which handles inter partes reviews, a type of patent challenge that has vexed drug makers since going into effect six years ago, because these are easier and faster to file than patent lawsuits.

UPDATED: Laois hurling championship formats to remain unchanged but seeding will apply

first_imgHome Sport GAA UPDATED: Laois hurling championship formats to remain unchanged but seeding will apply SportGAAHurling Previous articleSignificant decrease in burglaries in LaoisNext articleDeaths in Laois – Tuesday, December 11, 2018 Alan HartnettStradbally native Alan Hartnett is a graduate of Knockbeg College who has worked in the local and national media since 2008. Alan has a BA in Economics, Politics and Law and an MA in Journalism from DCU. His happiest moment was when Jody Dillon scored THAT goal in the Laois senior football final in 2016. The format for the Senior and Senior A hurling championships will remain as they were in 2018 for 2019 following a decision at last night’s County Board meeting.Club delegates were asked to consider a proposal from the Fixture Review Committee which sought for the championships to go back to the old knock-out format.Back in January, clubs voted on a joint proposal from Clough-Ballacolla and Rathdowney-Errill which saw the introduction of a group stage in both Senior and Senior A.Teams were split into two groups of four with the top team qualifying straight for the semi final while the second and third placed teams headed for the quarter finals.That meant that the bottom team in each of the groups headed for the relegation final.It ensured that all teams had a minimum of four championship matches but the Fixture Review Committee cited concerns about how competitive these games were.In the Senior, champions Camross lost their first game but were able to recover to go on and win the championship.While in the Senior A, Portlaoise lost to Rosenallis and Clonaslee but a win over Trumera got them through to the quarter final where they ultimately went on to win the competition and go on to reach the Leinster final which they lost to Graigue-Ballycallan. Pinterest Twitter WhatsApp Facebook By Alan Hartnett – 11th December 2018 Pinterest Council However, the feeling among delegates at the meeting was that the championships were good in their existing format.And they also took the decision that seeding will now apply in the Senior hurling championship for 2019.So what that means is that the two finalists and the two beaten semi finalists will be drawn into different groups next year.Camross and Rathdowney-Errill cannot play in the same group while neither will Borris-Kilcotton and Ballinakill.SEE ALSO – The end of Gaels teams in Laois as we know them following County Board vote Twittercenter_img New Arles road opens but disquiet over who was invited to official opening UPDATED: Laois hurling championship formats to remain unchanged but seeding will apply RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TAGSLaois SAHCLaois SHC 2018 Community Facebook WhatsApp Charlie Flanagan on Electric Picnic: ‘I’d ask organisers to consult with community leaders’ Community Laois secondary school announces scholarship winners for new academic yearlast_img read more

Non-resource sectors lift TSX

first_img Keywords Marketwatch Toronto stock market dips on weakness in the energy and financials sectors Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Energy stocks have been the biggest casualty of the rout on the TSX as oil prices have fallen about 40 per cent since summer. The sharp decline has been sparked by lower demand prospects and an overabundance of crude oil, thanks in large part to surging shale production in the U.S. and a refusal by OPEC to cut production to support prices. But the sell-off has also involved non-resource sectors as investors try to gauge the extent of damage that could be caused to the Canadian economy by the sharp fall in oil prices. —(The U.S. and Canadian) economies seem to be chugging along and, outside of the negativity on oil, there really doesn’t seem to be any other negative data prints,” said Kevin Headland, director of the portfolio advisory group at Manulife Asset Management. “So the fact that other sectors have been selling off along with energy names really didn’t make much sense. And a low oil price can be positive for many, many other sectors, especially when you look at retail spending and input costs to manufacturing.” Positive TSX sectors included industrials, ahead 0.65 per cent, telcos up 2.25 per cent and consumer discretionaries, which gained 1.3 per cent. The Canadian dollar fell 0.36 of a cent to a 5 1/2 year low of 86.75 cents US. A solid U.S. retail sales report for November also helped push markets higher. New York’s Dow Jones industrials gained 63.19 points to 17,596.34. The Nasdaq rose 24.13 points to 4,708.16 and the S&P 500 index was 9.19 points higher at 2,035.33. U.S. retail sales perked up in November with the start of the holiday shopping season, rising 0.7 per cent, led by online buying and purchases of autos, clothing and electronics. Crude oil prices closed at a fresh, five-year low under US$60 a barrel. The January crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange fell 99 cents to US$59.95 a barrel, adding to a loss of almost $3 racked up Wednesday after OPEC cut its forecast for global demand for the cartel’s oil. The much-battered energy sector retreated another 0.31 per cent and now is down about 30 per cent year to date in a sell-off that has lumped high-quality, low-cost producers with companies that are more vulnerable to low oil prices because of higher debt and production costs. Many energy companies have been reacting to sharply lower oil prices by cutting capital spending estimates. Cenovus Energy (TSX:CVE) joined that group Thursday as the company announced it was cutting 2015 capital spending to between $2.5 billion and $2.7 billion, down about 15 per cent from 2014 levels. Its shares slipped 30 cents to $20.80. The gold sector shed 1.28 per cent with February bullion down $3.80 to US$1,225.60 an ounce. The base metals sector fell 1.65 per cent even as March copper edged up three cents to US$2.92 a pound. The Toronto stock market rebounded to a modest advance Thursday as investors picked over some stocks, mainly in the non-resource sectors, that were indiscriminately sold off in a string of huge declines this week that sent the TSX into correction territory. The S&P/TSX composite index closed up 52.17 points at 13,905.12 after a 343-point plunge Wednesday that left the TSX down 12 per cent from its mid-summer highs. A drop of 10 per cent or more from recent highs is considered a correction.

Ending caveat emptor: CSA adopts client-focused reforms

first_img NASAA approves model act for establishing restitution funds Keywords Client-focused reforms,  Investor protectionCompanies Canadian Securities Administrators, Mutual Fund Dealers Association, Autorité des marchés financiers, Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada James Langton Securities regulators are introducing fundamental reforms that — at their heart — aim to improve client-advisor relationships by ensuring that clients’ interests come first.The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) on Thursday published a revised version of their client-focused reforms that, pending ministerial approval, would come into force by the end of the year. Firms will have a couple of years to come into full compliance with the requirements. usiness team in a meeting looking at a sheet of paper imagesbavaria/123RF Related news Retail trading surge on regulators’ radar, Vingoe says Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Among other things, the rules would explicitly require firms to resolve material conflicts of interest in the best interest of their clients, and to put their clients’ interests first when determining suitability.“These reforms are based on the fundamental concept that clients’ interests come first in their dealings with firms and individuals that are registered to give investment advice and trade in securities,” the CSA said.Additionally, the reforms aim to codify certain best practices when it comes to know-your-client (KYC) and know-your-product (KYP) obligations, as well as client disclosure.“The reforms are expected to increase investor confidence in the industry by better aligning industry conduct with investors’ expectations,” the regulators said.“Taken together, these changes mean better protection for retail investors across Canada, and a high and uniform standard of conduct for all registrants. Both investors and the industry as a whole will benefit from these new requirements,” said Louis Morisset, chair of the CSA and president and CEO of the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), in a statement.For dealers that belong to self-regulatory organizations, such as investment dealers and fund dealers, the SROs will be proposing their own reforms to adhere to the CSA’s proposed new requirements, enabling the regulators to exempt SRO dealers from the CSA’s rules — as happened when implementing the client relationship model (CRM) reforms.In a statement, the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) confirmed that it will revise its rules to “ensure alignment” with the CSA’s proposals, “without creating unnecessary duplication or regulatory burden.”IIROC also said it plans to have its amendments in force to meet the CSA’s planned transition period.The CSA’s reforms would come into force throughout the country on Dec. 31 of this year, although actual compliance would be subject to a phased transition period.The reforms relating to conflicts of interest and relationship disclosure would take effect at the end of 2020; the other changes would take effect by the end of 2021.The CSA first published the proposals back in June 2018. After undergoing an extensive comment process, they have been significantly revised to reflect the feedback regulators received in an effort to find the proper balance between dealing with the regulators’ investor protection concerns without adding excessive compliance costs on the industry.Some of the major changes to the CSA’s original proposals include scrapping prescriptive restrictions on referral arrangements, adding a “materiality” qualifier to the conflict of interest provisions, and providing scope in the rules and guidance for firms to scale the reforms to their specific businesses.The CSA says the changes are designed to “provide flexibility for registrants to comply with their obligations in a way that reflects their business models and their clients’ needs and objectives.”The regulators also say that they will be establishing an implementation committee to help guide the industry in implementing the changes.
