... In Maria Avila’s case, there were also comments alleging her “old” age, and while she did not know who started them, those remarks alone, as seem above in Reid v. Google, while they can be enough to file a claim, are not by themselves enough to prove age discrimination. Reid was fired for not being a “fit” to Google’s culture; Avila was terminated because she was not a fit to the new Saratoga Hostel’s performance standard policy. Under FEHA, the employer is required to establish that its practice is justified by business necessity. In Avila’s case, Saratoga Hostel can prove that under the new business plan, the company was forced to change their performance standard in order to stay in business. In Earl v.

...Research Paper How does an imposed requirement of regularly identifying exposure to operational risk benefit an insurance company? Executive Summary The topic of this research paper is how an imposed requirement of regularly identifying exposure to operational risk benefits an insurance company. Risks occur naturally in all business, but if risk is not controlled, there are plenty of consequences that can arise. Insurance companies deal with risk everyday, ranging from fraud, car theft, health policies, and bonds and stocks. Operational risk is defined as the resulting risk that is present after financial and analytical risk is analyzed. Actuaries are able to use many mathematical and statistical techniques that are used to calculate these risks for insurance companies. Using probability distributions and random variables, actuaries are able to identify, evaluate, and manage or control these risks. Studies on car theft have been performed to determine the percentage of risk involved in this type of risk. Different theories and hypothesis have been developed to analyze these situations. This allows insurance companies to proceed with the possibility of emerging fraud. Banks also involve different types of risk that can be modeled under a process known as Linear Discriminant Analysis. Life insurance companies involve policies between insurers and policyholders. Every contract is different for every policyholder, so the risk involved with life insurance varies greatly.......

Legal Research Method

...Research Methodology: An Introduction 1 1 Research Methodology: An Introduction MEANING OF RESEARCH Research in common parlance refers to a search for knowledge. Once can also define research as a scientific and systematic search for pertinent information on a specific topic. In fact, research is an art of scientific investigation. The Advanced Learner’s Dictionary of Current English lays down the meaning of research as “a careful investigation or inquiry specially through search for new facts in any branch of knowledge.”1 Redman and Mory define research as a “systematized effort to gain new knowledge.”2 Some people consider research as a movement, a movement from the known to the unknown. It is actually a voyage of discovery. We all possess the vital instinct of inquisitiveness for, when the unknown confronts us, we wonder and our inquisitiveness makes us probe and attain full and fuller understanding of the unknown. This inquisitiveness is the mother of all knowledge and the method, which man employs for obtaining the knowledge of whatever the unknown, can be termed as research. Research is an academic activity and as such the term should be used in a technical sense. According to Clifford Woody research comprises defining and redefining problems, formulating hypothesis or suggested solutions; collecting, organising and evaluating data; making deductions and reaching conclusions; and at last carefully testing the conclusions to determine whether they fit the......

...complex because it has been shown that it combines both the role of a “notaire” and a legal representative of the judges. The profession of “Adoul”, also called “notaire traditional” is regulated by the dahir of the 6th of May and modified on the 26th of April 1983. It stipulates that “Adoul” is considered as an auxiliary of the “Taouqit” justice. Like the profession of the “notaire,” the profession of the “Adoul” is considered as a private practice, and requires various steps for a person to have the right to practice it. In fact, to be an “Adoul”, a person has to graduate from either the university of religious case law in Tetouan (faculté de jurisprudence de Tetouan), or from any university in Morocco that is specialized in the field of juridical and Islamic science. The law also stipulates that the candidate should have a good morality to be selected for the practice of the profession. The candidates are nominated by the minister of Justice on the recommendation of the Cadi. D. The difference between a “notaire”, a lawyer, and “Adouls” In Morocco, we have more almost 7000 lawyers, 300 “notaires”, and 5000 “Adouls”. Both notaries and lawyers deal with legal issues; however, their jobs are different. As the opposite of the job of the lawyer, the “notaire” is only responsible for the accordance of the formalities. For example, if one of the parties (buyer or seller) wants to have some legal advice, they have to hire a lawyer who will help the parties prepare their......

For most employers, the application form is the first step in the selection process. Application forms provide a record of salient information about applicants for positions, and also furnish data for personnel research. Interviewers may use responses from the application for follow-up questions during the interview. These forms range from requests for basic information, such as applicant’s names, addresses, and telephone numbers, to comprehensive personal history profiles detailing applicants' education, job experience skills, and accomplishment. Testing is another method of selecting competent future employees. Although testing use has ebbed and flowed during the past two decades, recent studies reveal that more than 80 percent of employers use testing as part of their selection process. As a result, a manager needs to make sure that the test measures only job-relevant dimensions of applicants. Integrity tests measure factors such as......
