Canadian Caregivers Association

Both caregivers and employers can get in touch with the staff and volunteers by phone, e-mail, or mail to get the information and support they need, and to be connected to service and support organizations that can help further. The organization offers free legal advice in the area of immigration law. Since 2008 CCA initiated a cooperation with Bogdan Enica, RCIC, in order to offer free immigration support for caregivers in need. Also in 2009, the organization produced a DVD titled "Live-in in Canada", about the live-in caregiver program.

Westcott Rule Company

The company’s 55 employees could hold their job and the products continued to be sold under the Westcott brand. Acme Shear changed its name to Acme United Corporation in 1971 to better reflect its diversified product mix. When hard times fell upon Acme United during the mid-1990s, the company decided to sell the old Westcott factory and move its production to the lower cost and more efficient facility in North Carolina. But that wasn’t the end for Westcott. It had become such a well-known brand that Acme United started using the name on a wide variety of school and office products such as trimmers, pencil sharpeners, erasers, math tools, craft tools, etc.

Russell Kirk

Kirk, Russell
Tolkien (all of whom likewise wrote only nonfiction for their "day jobs"), there are conservative undercurrents—social, cultural, religious, and political—to Kirk's fiction. His first novel, Old House of Fear (1961, 1965), as with so many of his short stories, was written in a self-consciously Gothic vein. Here the plot is concerned with an American assigned by his employer to a bleak locale in rural Scotland—the same country where Kirk had attended graduate school. This was Kirk's most commercially successful and critically acclaimed fictional work, doing much to sustain him financially in subsequent years.

Piece work

pieceworkpiece ratepiece-rate
In the United States, the Fair Labor Standards Act requires that all employees, including piece work employees, earn at least the minimum wage. In calculating an appropriate piece work rate, employers must keep track of average productivity rates for specific activities and set a piece work rate that ensures that all workers are able to earn minimum wage. If a worker earns less than the minimum wage, the employer has to pay the difference.

Labour law

labor lawemployment lawlabor laws
One example of employment terms in many countries is the duty to provide written particulars of employment with the essentialia negotii (Latin for "essential terms") to an employee. This aims to allow the employee to know concretely what to expect and what is expected. It covers items including compensation, holiday and illness rights, notice in the event of dismissal and job description. The contract is subject to various legal provisions. An employer may not legally offer a contract that pays the worker less than a minimum wage. An employee may not agree to a contract that allows an employer to dismiss them for illegal reasons.

Bonus payment

"[To say] 'just because you had a good year this year I'll give you a $5 million, $10 million bonus', I think that's stupid,"" Bonuses are prone to being adjusted or even manipulated to the benefit of those employees who are responsible for reporting them, while they are already planning their leave with a golden handshake. Setting up good employment contracts may be a means to avoid that – at least to some extent – but this is rare in reality. In 2016 the management of Woodford Investment Management ended discretionary bonuses.

Unions allege that employer-incited opposition has contributed to this decline in membership. The most prominent unions are among public sector employees such as teachers, police and other non-managerial or non-executive federal, state, county and municipal employees. Members of unions are disproportionately older, male and residents of the Northeast, the Midwest, and California. Union workers in the private sector average 10-30% higher pay than non-union in America after controlling for individual, job, and labour market characteristics.

Amah (occupation)

It is a domestic servant role which combines functions of maid and nanny. They may be required to wear a uniform. The term, resembling the pronunciation for "mother" (see Mama and papa), is considered polite and respectful in the Chinese language. The word amah may have originated from the Portuguese ama meaning "nurse". Some however argued that it is the English form of the Chinese word ah mah (ah is a common Chinese prefix, and mah means "little mother"), while others say that it originated as nai mah (wet nurse in Chinese, literally "milk mother"). This word is common in East Asia, South East Asia and India to denote a maidservant or nursemaid.

Standard qualifications are regulated federally, though conditions of employment are determined at a provincial level. Requirements include a minimum of six months of training or one year of compatible employment within the past three years, though exceptions and additional stipulations do apply.

Charlotte Bill

Charlotte “Lalla” BillLala" Bill
Charlotte Jane "Lala" Bill (1875–1964) was a nanny to the children of the Duke and Duchess of York, later King George V and Queen Mary. She was most closely involved with the couple's youngest child, Prince John, whom she nursed devotedly from 1905 until his death in 1919. Lala began her employment as the under-nurse to the York children. Working under the head nurse, she was shocked at the nurse's treatment of the royal children. The nurse appeared to resent every new addition to the nursery, and neglected the second son, Bertie, later King George VI, to the point where he became ill as a result.

In 1993, shortly after Charles, Prince of Wales, and his wife, Diana, Princess of Wales had separated, Charles hired Legge-Bourke as nanny to their two sons. As the royal nanny, she soon began to make headlines. Early controversy came when she said scornfully of the Princess of Wales's attitude towards her sons: "I give them what they need at this stage, fresh air, a rifle and a horse. She gives them a tennis racket and a bucket of popcorn at the movies". It was also considered to be a gaffe when Tiggy referred to William and Harry as "my babies". She often went with the princes on holidays.
