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.

South African court says marijuana use in private is legal

Sep 18, 2018

JOHANNESBURG — South Africa's top court says adults can use marijuana in private. The Constitutional Court on Tuesday upheld a provincial court's ruling in a case involving Gareth Prince, who advocates the decriminalization of the drug. Prince says cannabis should be regulated in the same way as alcohol and tobacco. Government authorities have said cannabis is harmful and should be illegal. The top court says an adult can cultivate cannabis in "a private place" as long as it is for personal consumption in private. It says the right to privacy "extends beyond the boundaries of a home." The court says...

Isolated and unseen, Yemenis eat leaves to stave off famine

Sep 18, 2018

CAIRO — In a remote pocket of northern Yemen, many families with starving children have nothing to eat but the leaves of a local vine, boiled into a sour, acidic green paste. International aid agencies have been caught off guard by the extent of the suffering there as parents and children waste away. The main health center in Aslam district was flooded with dozens of emaciated children during a recent visit by the Associated Press. Excruciatingly thin toddlers, eyes bulging, sat in a plastic washtub used in a make-shift scale as nurses weighed each one. Their papery skin was stretched...

South Africa uses new tech to fight vicious gun violence

Sep 18, 2018

CAPE TOWN, South Africa — As gunshots ring out in one of South Africa's most dangerous neighborhoods, a new technology detects the gun's location and immediately alerts police. South Africa is the first country outside the United States to implement the "shotspotter" audio technology, which is also being used to fight wildlife poaching on the other end of the country in Kruger National Park. The technology's use in Cape Town's notoriously violent Cape Flats area has contributed for the first time this year to a conviction in a gang shooting. Police hope more will follow. "About 13 percent of gunshots...

CAIRO — Tests showed that e.coli bacteria were behind the death of two British tourists in a hotel in Egypt's Red Sea resort of Hurghada, the country's chief prosecutor said on Wednesday. The statement by Prosecutor Nabil Sadek came a week after travel company Thomas Cook said that there was a "high level of e.coli and staphylococcus bacteria" at the Steigenberger Aqua Magic Hotel where John and Susan Cooper died Aug. 21 after falling ill in their room in the five-star hotel. Forensic tests showed that John Cooper, 69, suffered acute intestinal dysentery caused by e.coli, and Susan Cooper, 64,...

Botswana hits back at critics on anti-poaching policy

Sep 18, 2018

JOHANNESBURG — Botswana's president says criticism of his government's anti-poaching policy is "nothing but hysteria," following reports that poachers are killing more elephants in a country with Africa's biggest elephant population. The remark by President Mokgweetsi Masisi came after some conservationists expressed concern that Botswana's wildlife department had been stripped of weapons required for the sometimes dangerous work of thwarting armed poachers. "This stretch of imagination of linking the poaching of any species with an alleged disarmament of the department of wildlife is nothing but hysteria," Masisi said Saturday after returning home from an official trip to China. Elephants Without...
