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.

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Jul 17, 2019

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory.

Jul 17, 2019

JOHANNESBURG — A powerful tropical cyclone began to make landfall on Thursday in Mozambique, just six weeks after Cyclone Idai devastated the central part of the country and left hundreds dead. Authorities carried out compulsory evacuations in cases where residents resisted warnings to flee. Cyclone Kenneth is expected to bring heavy rains and flooding to northeastern Mozambique, which was not hit by the earlier storm, and southern Tanzania, which told coastal residents to evacuate. The cyclone arrived in Mozambique north of the city of Pemba with maximum sustained winds of 220 kilometers (136 miles) per hour, the Joint Typhoon Warning...
