Women making up larger slice of high earners

first_imgThe number of high-earning women is rising faster than the number of high-earning men.The number of women who are now higher-rate tax payers was 17 per cent greater in the financial year 2013-14 (April to April) than 2012-13, according to official data crunched by Radius Equity.  This is quicker growth than in high-earning men which was 13 per cent over the same period. The proportion of women who are high-earners is now 28 per cent, up from 21 per cent 10 years ago. High-earners are those earning above the 40 per cent tax threshold of £41,865. More women are also moving into the highest tax band.  The number of women paying the additional rate of 45 per cent for earnings above £150,000 was nine per cent greater in 2013-14 than in 2012-13. This is slightly higher than the eight per cent increase in the number men of men paying the highest rate of tax. There were 48,000 women paying the highest rate in 2013-14 compared with 44,000 the year before. “Our long term economic plan is helping more women move into high-paid, high-skilled work and as a result the gender pay gap has reduced to its lowest point in  history,” a spokesperson for the  coalition told City A.M. “The government will continue to tackle the causes of gender pay inequality. Shared Parental Leave will help to tackle the unequal split of caring responsibilities, and we are promoting pay transparency by  making free pay analysis software available to employers.” Last week a bill was voted on in the House of Commons that would allow the government to force companies with over 250 employees to publish gender pay data. The bill passed with a large majority. According to a report by the World Economic Forum, the gender pay gap had worsened since the onset of the 2008 financial crisis. The UK is ranked 26th in terms of gender pay equality compared to 9th in 2006.

How the OSC is approaching regulatory burden

first_img Rudy Mezzetta Related news Regulators propose slimming corporate disclosure Speaking on his own behalf, and not for the OSC officially, Kanji nevertheless said that his comments at “Reducing the Regulatory Burden … Yes, But How?”, an event presented by NEO, reflected “how the commission is approaching this important initiative.”Kanji said the regulator could address regulatory burden reduction as part of its organizational strategy by embarking on four key shifts in approach:Recognizing that regulatory reform is not just about processes and requirements, but also about developing a culture of regulatory adaptation. “The way an activity or entity has been regulated in the past does not [have to be] how it should be regulated in the future,” Kanji said.Continuing to engage a broad range of stakeholders about which risks in our capital markets should be reduced or eliminated by regulation, and how that can be done more effectively.Facilitating a common understanding of the underlying regulatory concerns for different market activities and entities: “Our focus should be on having a sophisticated and contextual approach to identifying the material risks relevant to determining a regulatory response.”Continuing to recognize that how the OSC administers its functions is as important to stakeholders as the cost associated with complying with its regulations. “That requires a renewed focus on our customer service standards, and constant evaluation of the line between prescriptive rules and regulatory discretion.”Finally, Kanji said that OSC needs to make these shifts “by maintaining investor confidence in the market and [through] evolution of securities regulation.”The Progressive Conservative government in Ontario, elected in 2018, has made reducing regulatory burden a key objective. Earlier this year, the OSC established a task force to examine its rules and processes with a goal to eliminate or reduce regulatory burden on the securities industry.

Multi-Agency Approach Being Taken to Control Explicitly Sexual and Violent Music on Air…Says Min Vaz

first_imgRelatedMulti-Agency Approach Being Taken to Control Explicitly Sexual and Violent Music on Air…Says Min Vaz FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Government is moving to take a multi-Agency/multi- pronged approach to solving the problem of explicitly sexual and violent songs and their wide accessibility in the public space.In a statement today, Minister with responsibility for Information, Daryl Vaz, said this approach would continue until successful outcomes are achieved and sustained.While commending the efforts already being undertaken by the police and the Ministry of Transport, which are working collaboratively to remove explicitly sexual and violent songs from the vehicles of public transportation and public places so as to maintain law and order, Mr. Vaz said more has to be done to achieve the desired outcomes.Earlier this year the Broadcast Commission issued directives to media houses aimed at eliminating from the airwaves, lyrics which were extreme and hardcore, as some media houses were engaging in what Mr. Vaz referred to as a “no holds barred” approach to programming. The Minister noted that despite these regulations, boundaries are still being breached.“There were weaknesses in management controls over output, and some on-air persons lack a basic understanding of the critical role that media plays in development. In light of extensive research which reveals that songs with violent lyrics increase aggression, related thoughts and emotions, and feelings of hostility without provocation, regulatory intervention is necessary and since then, great strides have been made in building consensus around Content Standards”, the Minister said.Mr. Vaz said the recent meeting with dancehall artistes, Mavado and Vybz Kartel, was a part of the efforts of promoting peace, positive values and attitudes, through dialogue.The Minister has called for co-operation and national support “to make the necessary sacrifices, whether to our political or social popularity, our viewership, listenership, advertising or our commercial bottom lines, to make this vision a reality and safeguard Jamaica”.

Colorado High School Students To Attend 'Italian Day' At CU-Boulder

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Sept. 20 is “Italian Day at CU” for Colorado high school students who will be treated to an authentic Italian dinner and college language classes courtesy of the University of Colorado at Boulder’s department of French and Italian, the Outreach Grant committee and the Office of Community Affairs. Students from four Pueblo, Colo., high school Italian classes will come to CU-Boulder to tour campus and the Anderson Language Technology Center (ALTEC) in the Hellems Arts and Sciences Building. They will attend Italian classes and visit with representatives from the admissions office and the Study Abroad Program. Dinner will begin at 4:15 p.m. at Carelli’s of Boulder, a restaurant serving specialties from various regions of Italy. CU-Boulder Professor Graziana Lazzarino will talk about Italian language and culture at the end of the dinner. “Italian faculty members look forward to integrating the Pueblo students into classroom activities, and the trip to ALTEC will include an opportunity for both students and faculty to work with new Web-based language activities,” said Pamela Marcantonio, instructor and language program coordinator at CU-Boulder. Marcantonio and Lazzarino received a grant from the CU-Boulder Outreach Grant committee to fund the events. The Office of Community Affairs contributed additional funds for transportation costs. All the members of the CU-Boulder Italian faculty will be involved, with high school students sitting-in on a variety of classes. The students will get an introduction to the learning style and expectations in college-level foreign language classes, and have a chance to talk with CU-Boulder Italian majors. “Pueblo High Schools have an exceptional program in Italian, and, through this Italian Day event, we hope to encourage their students to come to CU-Boulder to continue Italian in our department,” Lazzarino said. A group of students from Denver West High School will visit CU-Boulder on Oct. 23 for a similar set of activities that will conclude around 1 p.m. For more information on the CU-Boulder department of French and Italian, visit http://www.Colorado.EDU/FRIT/.

It is proposed therefore to rent a facility for Disability Day Services in Donegal Town to address current needs.In a statement the HSE says it us currently reviewing and assessing alternative options in Donegal Town.It is added that in the event that a suitable building is not available in Donegal Town the HSE will consider other options.
