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.

NAIROBI, Kenya — The Kenyatta National Hospital is east Africa's biggest medical institution, home to more than a dozen donor-funded projects with international partners — a "Center of Excellence," says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The hospital's website proudly proclaims its motto — "We Listen ...

Deadly attack amid Ebola outbreak stalls containment efforts

JOHANNESBURG — Congolese rebels killed 15 civilians and abducted a dozen children in an attack at the epicenter of the latest deadly Ebola outbreak, Congo's military said Sunday, as the violence again forced crucial virus-containment efforts to be suspended. "It will be very hard to stop the outbreak if this violence continues," said the World Health Organization's emergencies chief, Peter Salama.

AP Explains: Why Congo's latest Ebola outbreak is worrying

Nov 17, 2018

JOHANNESBURG — The World Health Organization has announced that Congo's latest outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus is not yet considered a global health emergency. Some aid groups expressed alarm when the rate of new cases more than doubled this month. With the area compared to a war zone, resistance to health workers sometimes turning violent and confirmed cases found near the heavily traveled Ugandan border, the risk of regional spread is "very high." Here's a look at the outbreak that has had 185 confirmed cases, including 107 deaths, since it was declared on Aug. 1. ___ WHAT IS EBOLA?...

Cape Town artist fights gang violence with beach calligraphy

Nov 17, 2018

CAPE TOWN, South Africa — The Hangberg community outside ruggedly beautiful Hout Bay is troubled by gang violence, drugs and poverty. One artist trying to break the destructive cycle recently ran a workshop for a group of children from the area to teach them an unusual medium: beach calligraphy. Andrew van der Merwe is a professional calligrapher who 10 years ago found a way to combine his love of the outdoors with his career by writing words and creating designs in the sand. He has presented his unique art form twice at the Sharjah Art Biennial in the United Arab...
