Naples, United States - September 14, 2018 /PressCable/ —

Vernon Litigation Group and The Mauriello Law firm have filed a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration claim today in Southern California against FINRA member Charles Schwab & Co, Inc. (Schwab) on behalf of a young female Claimant. The core of the claims are allegations of wrongful and retaliatorily termination of Claimant, a young, female employee, soon after reporting harassment by the branch manager to Human Resources. The Claim also alleges inappropriate comments made by the manager about the female advisor’s attire and her interactions with clients. Claimant was allegedly the only female Financial Consultant in her office and Schwab is alleged to have invented a pretextual disciplinary violation to report on the victim’s regulatory history (CRD).

Prior to being terminated, Claimant appropriately notified Schwab management for employee relations and workplace practices about her concerns of being held different standards and being treated in a discriminatory way by her branch manager. Despite anti-harassment policy that states that Schwab forbids retaliation against any employee who has reported harassment or who has cooperated in the investigation of harassment complaints, Claimant was terminated soon after reporting her situation through the proper channels. The impact of Schwab’s alleged wrongdoing has been especially devastating in light of the fact that Claimant’s compensation was used to help Claimant support for her ill mother.

“It is concerning to see this type of pattern continuing to occur in the brokerage industry”, said Vernon Litigation attorney Chris Vernon. Vernon believes that despite being very advanced in figuring out how to sell product to clients, many brokerage firms are stuck in the past when it comes to treatment of financial professionals and other employees. Vernon adds that culture in some financial firms lags significantly behind the policies and procedures in place at those firms.

Feb 20, 2019

JOHANNESBURG — As World Pangolin Day is marked around the globe, Saturday, some conservationists in South Africa are working to protect the endangered animals, including caring for a few that have been rescued from traffickers. The eighth annual pangolin day is celebrated to raise awareness about the shy, nocturnal scaly anteater, which some wildlife organizations say is the world's most trafficked animal.

ABUJA, Nigeria — Halima Usman is part of a booming new generation in Nigeria, voting for the first time in a presidential election Saturday after being raised during the country's two decades of civilian rule.

CAIRO — Egypt says archaeologists have uncovered an ancient workshop used to build and repair ships that dates back to the Ptolemaic era (332 B.C.-30 B.C.) in the Sinai Peninsula.

Losing climate change race a 'disaster for Africa,' UN says

Feb 20, 2019

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — The United Nations chief says the world is losing the race with climate change and "this can be a disaster for Africa" and beyond. Antonio Guterres urged more political will for financing and adaptation as he spoke on Saturday ahead of a summit of the African Union continental body.

Temperature increases will be greater in Africa. The U.N. chief also tells reporters that after recent moves toward peace in South Sudan...

US cuts military aid to Cameroon over human rights concerns

Feb 20, 2019

JOHANNESBURG — The United States said Wednesday it is cutting some military aid to Cameroon over human rights concerns after growing allegations of abuses by security forces, a significant step against a solid ally in central Africa that is gripped by fighting between the government and Anglophone separatists. The U.S. decision comes after videos circulated online last year showing Cameroonian security forces shooting and killing civilians, including women with small children strapped to their backs. The videos were documented by Amnesty International and global media outlets. The top U.S. diplomat for Africa, Tibor Nagy, said in December that he feared...
