The Institute also provides customized training and Human Resources Certification (HRC) to private-sector and public entities throughout Illinois.   To view the 2015 Spring Training Schedule, and register for a training session, please visit http://www2.illinois.gov/dhr/Training/Pages/default.aspx.   The Illinois Human Rights Act protects individuals from discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age (40 and over), marital status, disability, military status, familial status, sexual orientation (including gender identity) or unfavorable military discharge.  Further information is available at www.illinois.gov/dhr

ILLINOIS BUSINESS LAWS EFFECTIVE 2015

PA 98-0776 (SB 1098) Corporate Liability post dissolution
Allows for a corporation that has been dissolved to continue to be liable up to five years after the dissolution.  Any legitimate claim against the corporation could be from any period before, during, or after dissolution up to five years.  The law reverses a decision made by the Illinois Supreme Court.

PA 98-0774 (HB 5701) ‘Ban the Box’ bill
Prohibits employers from seeking information regarding a potential employee’s criminal history until after an invitation to interview or a conditional offer of employment has been extended.  Intended to allow job seekers with criminal history to be considered on their merits and experience rather than being dismissed out of hand for an offense

PA 98-0862 (HB 5622) Payroll cards
This law establishes requirements and regulations for the use of payroll cards by employers - stored value cards offered by some companies to their employees as an alternative to payroll checks or direct deposit. Payroll cards are similar to debit cards and can be used to make purchases or withdraw cash at ATMs. Regulations include prohibiting the employer from forcing an employee to accept a payroll card in lieu of other payment, and ensuring the employer provides a complete written explanation of the terms and conditions of the payroll card account including any fees that may be involved.

PA 98-0911 (HB 4790) Hair braiding licensure standards
Provides that an individual licensed as a hair braider teacher may practice hair braiding without being licensed as a hair braider.  The purpose of this change is to bring the same standards to barber oversight as is done with cosmetology.

PA 98-1037 (HB 4157) Employee status for interns
Adopts the federal definition of “intern” to the Illinois Human Rights Act, giving employee status to unpaid interns at Illinois businesses for the purpose of sexual harassment claims.  An “intern” is considered an employee if:   the employer & intern agree to no wages; employer is not committed to hiring the person; and the closely supervised work provides experience for the benefit of the person performing the work, but does not displace regular employees.

PA 98-1119 (SB 3405) Protecting small businesses from patent trolls
Any person sending demand letters about patent infringement must have an actual legal claim that is valid. Offenders will be subject to sanctions for engaging in a deceptive business practice.

PA 98-1051 (HB 5563)   Equal pay investigations
Allows Departments of Labor (DOL) and Human Rights (DHR) to combine Equal Pay and Sex Discrimination investigations and investigate an equal pay violation when a sex discrimination violation is also alleged, so that employers do not have to undergo TWO investigations.

PA 98-1050 (HB 8) Workplace pregnancy accommodations
Provides that it is a civil rights violation for employers: to not to make reasonable accommodations for employees with conditions commonly related to childbirth or pregnancy; to require a job applicant or employee to accept accommodations; to require an employee to take leave for a medical condition related to childbirth or pregnancy; or to retaliate against a person who has requested, attempted to request, used, or attempted to use a reasonable accommodation.

PA 98-0838 (SB 2999) Licensing of roofing contractors
An applicant for licensure must submit to IDFPR evidence that they have an unemployment insurance employer account number issued by IDES, and that there is not a delinquency in payment under the Unemployment Insurance Act.  All persons performing roofing services under the Act shall be licensed as roofing contractors, except for persons who are deemed to be employees of a licensed roofing contractor.

PA 98-0874 (SB 1103) Occupational Safety and Health Act
This new Act, like the two Acts it replaces, applies only to public employers (the federal OSHA Act governs occupational health and safety in the private sector). One new change in the combined Act allows the Attorney General to bring an action in a circuit court to enforce the collection of any civil penalty assessed under the Act.

PA 98-1096 (SB 1778) Resale Dealers Act
The act requires that a resale dealer maintain a standard record book that has been approved by local law enforcement. It provides that the resale dealer shall record a detailed account of each transaction in the record book and establishes additional requirements concerning record books. Further provides that every resale dealer shall require that ID be shown by each person selling any goods, articles, or other things to the resale dealer and establishes additional requirements concerning acceptable forms of ID. It establishes criminal offenses that a person may be charged with for violating the Act, and amends the Pawnbroker Regulation Act to repeal a provision concerning requirements for unregistered buyers conducting business at temporary buying locations. Defines resale dealer.

3Flags come under Admiralty law/commerce law #NZFlag
Regarding the changing of the flag and it's relation to the TPPA,
what most don't understand is that by changing the flag,
NZ PM John Key is able to invalidate the Treaty of Waitangi and the^ *1986 Constitution (which includes the Treaty of Waitangi) that was signed under it.

Our Constitution covers the Bill of Rights Act 1990, Human Rights Act 1993, Five Principles of the Treaty 1989, Magna Carta 1297, laws relating to individual rights, eg Education, Social Security, Privacy Act 1993, Public Works Act 1981.

While 'the changing of the flag' does appear to be a red herring to divert from other issues, this in itself is required for the TPPA to go ahead to full potential. Our Constitution (including The Treaty of Waitangi) and the TPPA can not co-exist.

Key has tried to get claims settled and has been hit with the fact that the Maori never intended to sign away sovereignty of NZ, but were told they were signing an agreement for joint rule. Key knows he can't just make this 'go away', so he is deceitfully looking to invalidate the Treaty.

REFERENDUM suggestion (Please SHARE): Rather than boycott the referendum as your form of protest, we ALL need to be PRO-ACTIVE in this so JK can not turn around and say "no one cared to vote which shows no opposition to the new flag". Instead of voting for one of the 2 new flag options, we need to ADD our current flag to the list and tick against that option. Now, this will be marked as an invalid vote, BUT, JK can not say no one cared, AND our goal should be to FLOOD the referendum with as many of these invalid votes as possible to make sure our opposition is overwhelmingly heard. We need to spread this info to all. If you have a way of getting it into the media then do it.

People need to know it's not only the 'cost' of the flag that we need to be objecting to, but also JK's underhanded and deceitful measures to invalidate an honest and legally binding treaty and Constitution, to in-act a secretive back room deal that sells our people out to Corporate power
DUE AUTHORITY A VERY SILENT COUP:
TPPA -Flags & The Assassination of the NZ Democracy.  Fly the Red Blue White and Say No to Prince John and the TTPA. "God of Nations at Thy feet, In the bonds of love we meet, God defend our free land.Hear our voices, we entreat,Guard Pacific's triple star From the shafts of strife and war, Make her praises heard afar, God defend New Zealand".…

Civil Rights in Canada

An important principle of liberal democracies is to set limits on what governments can do to their citizens. Sometimes the limits on government are left to self-restraint, but in some countries legislation or protection of citizens' rights is put in place. In this section, you will trace the development of civil rights protection in Canada through to the entrenchment of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. You will find links to the full text of the Supreme Court of Canada's decisions on Charter issues. Also included is a set of links to a wide range of civil rights organizations. 

 

CIVIL RIGHTS
In Canada the definition and protection of civil rights began with ordinary statutes that set out a limited range of rights to which citizens were entitled. Saskatchewan was the first Canadian province to legislate a human rights code, in 1947. 

Parliament passed the Bill of Rights in 1960, as one means of protecting Canadians from government excesses. The federal and provincial legislatures have since passed legislation and set up human rights commissions to extend protection into many private contexts, especially employment. For examples, you can read the B.C. Human Rights Code, the Ontario Human Rights Code, the Canadian Human Rights Act or visit the Canadian Human Rights Commission. 

Quebec has its own provincial Charter of Human Rights that has been given enough weight in the courts to strike down other legislation even though it is an ordinary statute. The key section of this document that gives it this force is section 52, which reads: 

No provision of any Act, even subsequent to the Charter, may derogate from sections 1 to 30, except so far as provided by those sections, unless such Act expressly states that it applies despite the Charter.


THE CANADIAN CHARTER OF RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS
The Canadian Department of Justice so provides a Digest of the Supreme Court's Charter of Rights decisions which provides brief summaries of judicial decisions relevant to each section of the Charter involved. 

The Library of Parliament has a useful research paper on the Notwithstanding Clause of the Charter. 

An on going controversy is whether the courts have become too powerful under the Charter of Rights. Read the results of a Ipsos Poll on Canadian's attitudes to the power of judges.

Britain is leading the charge against basic human rights, Amnesty claims

Increased surveillance in Britain, along with the reduction of access to justice, have contributed to one of the worst assaults on human rights in Europe since the fall of the Berlin Wall, according to a damning assessment by Amnesty International.
In its annual State of the World’s Human Rights report published today, Amnesty says the Coalition had rushed through legislation such as anti-terror measures and invasive surveillance powers without adequate time for parliamentary debate.
The NGO condemns David Cameron for not only “leading the charge” in attacking the European Convention on Human Rights, but also for passing legislation that, while designed to increase public safety, has come at the cost of basic civil liberties.
The Prime Minister has confirmed that a future Conservative government would also repeal the Human Rights Act and replace it with a British Bill of Rights, with a view to limiting the influence of the European Court of Human Rights, which enforces the Convention.

Amnesty’s report warns that those draft proposals threaten significant restrictions on rights. At the same time legal aid cuts “continue to restrict access to justice”.
In its assessment Amnesty says the influence of “nationalist, thinly veiled xenophobic attitudes” was particularly evident in increasingly restrictive migration policies and anti-EU tirades, with human rights a particular target.
The report says: “The UK and Switzerland led the charge, with ruling parties in both countries openly attacking the European Court of Human Rights and discussing withdrawal from the Convention system. In short, at no time since the fall of the Berlin Wall had the integrity of, and support for, the international human rights framework in the Europe and Central Asia region appeared quite so brittle.”
Referring to the Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Act, which came into force last July, extending the reach of authorities’ interception powers, the report says “sufficient safeguards were not in place to ensure that such surveillance was authorised and carried out in conformity with the rights to privacy and freedom of expression”.

Kate Allen, the director of Amnesty International UK, said: “The UK is going in the wrong direction on rights, protections and fairness. Public safety is paramount, but not at the cost of basic civil liberties.
“Twice this year GCHQ spies have been rumbled breaking the law. We should all be concerned about waking up in a surveillance state, without having a proper public debate about it first. The UK talks the talk on the global stage on human rights but this year’s summary shows they need to tend to their own garden.”
The shadow Justice Secretary, Sadiq Khan, told The Independent: “The belligerent attitude of the Tories towards human rights, access to justice and the rule of law is doing real damage to our international reputation.”
The global report also condemns world leaders for failing to intervene in conflicts such as Syria, Gaza and Ukraine, in what it calls a “catastrophic year” for millions of people caught up in violence.
Amnesty called on the UN Security Council to renounce its veto power – wielded solely by the five permanent members, Britain, China, France, Russia and the US – to make it easier for peacekeeping forces to be deployed to prevent genocide or mass atrocities.

This sort of thing alone is a good enough reason to keep the Human Rights Act and stay in Europe. The only reason it doesn't happen so much in the UK (it does still happen though) is that the government has to answer to the European Court of Human Rights. In the US the Supreme Court is weak and stuffed with government approved judges that allow these abuses to happen.
