Justgiving launches online payroll giving service

first_imgOnline giving service Justgiving has launched a new service to make payroll giving ‘fast, easy, fun and interactive.’The Justgiving payroll giving solution allows employees to choose from over600 charities to donate to, without being restricted by a Professional Fundraising Organisations (PFO). As such smaller charities can benefit from the payroll giving scheme just as much as their largercounterparts, says the online giving service. The Justgiving solution automatesadministration processes and reduces associated costs for employers, using the benefits of online giving.

Infacilitating this process, the employer is perceived as supporting causes which are important to each member of staff.”Justgiving contrasts its online service to the current paper-based system used by many payroll givers. Currently if employees want to participate in a payroll giving scheme, they usually have to complete a form by hand, pass the information tothe human resources or finance department where the information will be manually entered into the company’s payroll system. In medium to large organisations, says Justgiving, this often requires the services of at least one full time employee. Justgiving points out that its service will therefore offer administrative savings for medium to large companies. In addition, “it will make it easier for smaller organisations to offer payroll giving in the first place.”Justgiving enables one off and regular donations to be made so forexample, if an employee is running a marathon, all sponsorship of theindividual by colleagues can easily be processed through payroll giving.Employees can review and modify their charity choice in response to emergency appeals, a key event in their own life such as a wedding or birthday, or to support individual sponsorship of friends or family. Justgiving say that their solution is “simple to integrate into an organisation’s existing systems and no specialist intranet is needed.” Justgiving is offering free set up for organisations who sign up for itspayroll giving solution before 31 October 2003. The full price after thistime will be £12,500. Howard Lake | 31 August 2003 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

JPS considering new, expanded facilities

first_imgLinkedin ReddIt Linkedin Facebook printJPS Health Network could have a new look in the coming future.The John Peter Smith Board of Managers announced in March that it would begin discussing new facilities at its next meeting in April. The Board is currently looking into the possibility of expanding and renovating the hospital district’s location on Main Street in Fort Worth.President and CEO of JPS Health Network Robert Earley said the main reason for the discussion is to better serve patients. The public health network is the only level one trauma center in Tarrant County, while the hospital also serves more than 1,500 psychiatric patients per month.“We obviously do have some capacity issues,” Earley said.J.R. Labbe, vice president of communications and community affairs, said the hospital serves 380 patients per day in the emergency room alone.“Everything that goes along with that in terms of testing and service lines is also magnifying,” Labbe said.Some of JPS’s hospital rooms hold three patients at a time. By doing this, Earley said the hospital could run the risk of violating the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. He said it also poses risks to patients and visitors.“You put more people per room and more visitors in there, you create challenges that we want to rid,” Earley said.Labbe said the hospital administration would want a new JPS building to feature only private patient rooms.But there is no timeline or budget for the ideas yet. Labbe said. If plans move forward, JPS could plan to build new facilities and renovate existing ones.“Our patient base doesn’t decrease here,” Labbe said. “So as the county grows, so do the demands on what we do here.”Parkland Health & Hospital System, one of JPS’s main comparisons, completed construction work on a new $1.3 billion hospital in Dallas last month.Earley said not to expect JPS to mimic the look of the sleek and technologically-advanced Parkland Memorial Hospital.“[We’re] not looking for a pretty building or something that looks good when you drive by,” Earley said. “You really want to look at patient flow and how best you’re serving your patients.”JPS currently owns an empty plot of land next to its current facilities. The old St. Joseph Hospital, built in 1927, used to sit there, but it was torn down in 2012-2013. Earley said new expectations and guidelines for health care systems meant the hospital had to go.“It was historic, but it didn’t fit the demands of what is required in the health care system today,” Earley said.Labbe said that empty area would be the home of new JPS facilities, but there are no set plans for any moves at this time.The Board of Managers will meet this Thursday on April 9.Clayton Youngman is a public affairs reporter for The 109.

Public disgrace could justify dismissal

first_img Previous Article Next Article Organisations worried about damage to their reputations from theout-of-hours misconduct of employees could be justified in sacking them. In the case of Post Office v Liddiard, the Court of Appeal said that incases where the employer is identified publicly with the individual, theadverse effect on their corporate image could be reasonable grounds fordismissal. The case followed the arrest of a Post Office employee in France during the1998 World Cup for public order offences and his subsequent naming and shamingin the UK press. The Post Office dismissed him as a result, but the employment tribunalupheld his complaint for unfair dismissal on the grounds that he had anexcellent employment record and the misconduct was unrelated to his work. The Court of Appeal however allowed the appeal, saying the issue of bringingthe employer into disrepute had not been properly considered. But employment lawyers warned the decision to dismiss should be taken onlyafter an assessment of the nature and extent of the publicity, the nature ofthe offence and the likely reactions of customers.

The Property Ombudsman expels two Southampton agencies

first_imgConsumers are being warned by the UK’s largest property redress scheme about the actions of two lettings agents based in Southampton. Both agencies, trading as ‘The Flat Agency & Michael Browns Ltd’ and ‘Property Vibe Ltd’, were expelled from lettings redress membership of The Property Ombudsman (TPO) scheme for a minimum period of three years.Without registration these companies cannot legally trade as letting agents, and other redress schemes will not allow previously expelled agents to join. Landlords who lease their property with an agent that is not registered with TPO will not be entitled to have their dispute reviewed by the Ombudsman, and nor will any tenants renting through an unregistered agent.The decision to expel The Flat Agency & Michael Browns Ltd follows complaints made against it from local landlords and tenants. The complaints were independently reviewed by the Ombudsman and all were upheld. Cases against this agent were all similar in nature, relating to delay and/or failure in paying money owed to the complainants and several flagged serious concerns with the Ombudsman, who described the agents’ practices as “dishonest and deceitful”.The Ombudsman ordered payment of the money owed together with compensation.When the agent failed to pay either the money owed or compensation, it was referred to the scheme’s Disciplinary and Standard’s Committee (DSC). When it still failed to pay, the DSC expelled the agent from membership and from registration.Gerry Fitzjohn (left), Chairman of the TPO Board, commented: “Cases like these are extremely rare but this agent has demonstrated a complete lack of regard for its clients, and failed to forward money to them which it should have been keeping in a separate clients’ money account. The firm committed several flagrant breaches of the TPO Codes of Practice for Residential Letting Agents and has been expelled as a result.”Property Vibe Ltd is the second Southampton firm to be disciplined this month. Despite leaving the scheme in 2015, after its membership ended due to its failure to pay its membership fees, Property Vibe Ltd was also disciplined for failing to refund money owed to complainants or pay an award of compensation. The Ombudsman criticised Property Vibe’s lack of response not only to the complainants but also to TPO which had provided ample opportunities to resolve this complaint without the need for a formal review.Mr Fitzjohn added: “Both agents have failed comply with the TPO Code of Practice by not providing any evidence to support their side of the story or demonstrate an appropriate complaints handling procedure. Their reckless management has caused avoidable aggravation, distress and inconvenience.”The Flat Agency & Michael Browns Ltd and Property Vibe Ltd were both officially expelled on 11 March 2016. TPO is working closely with Southampton Trading Standards in relation to these issues.Clive Robinson, Trading Standards Team Leader at Southampton City Council, said: “Trading Standards can confirm that we have received information both from the Ombudsman and a number of landlords and tenants. Membership of an approved ombudsman scheme is a legal requirement for all letting agents as is the proper protection of tenant’s deposits and we will be working with the Ombudsman and others to address any identified breach of the law.”Following the agents’ expulsion, consumer complaints will now be referred to the Citizens Advice Consumer Service for support and onward referral to Southampton Trading Standards.Property Vibe The Property Ombudsman TPO TPO expels two agencies 2016-05-11The Negotiator Related articles Letting agent fined £11,500 over unlicenced rent-to-rent HMO3rd May 2021 BREAKING: Evictions paperwork must now include ‘breathing space’ scheme details30th April 2021 Lawyer leading RICS governance probe asks members to help with evidence30th April 2021What’s your opinion?
