Google hit with class-action over gender-pay discrimination

A class action filed Thursday against Google claims the tech company systemically pays women less than men in similar jobs and also enables unequal promotions and opportunities for male and female workers. The sex discrimination case filed in San Francisco Superior Court, Ellis v. Google, accuses the Mountain View, California, company of paying women at all levels less than men in comparable positions, assigning women lower-tier jobs with lower pay and compensation than men and promoting women less frequently. The lawsuit also claims Google failed to correct these issues even after being made aware of them.

Brexit: Leaked documents revealed UK plan to cut EU migration

Proposals to force a post-Brexit cut in low-skilled migrants from the continent have ignited a political row on the eve of an explosive Commons battle over EU withdrawal. A leaked Home Office document outlining ways to restrict immigration heightened the political temperature over Brexit after Labour insisted it would vote against the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, which gets its second reading in Parliament on Thursday, and pro-Europe Tory MPs threatened to back amendments to the landmark legislation.

McDonald's workers strike for first time in the UK

McDonald’s faces its first strike since it opened in the UK in 1974, as well as protests by unions and the public at several restaurants over pay and working conditions. Staff in Cambridge and Crayford, south-east London, walked out in a row over the use of zero-hours contracts and "inexplicably" low pay. The Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU) said the strike was being well supported. Members of other trade unions joined early-morning picket lines outside the two restaurants, while Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn offered his backing.

Experts have made a gloomy prognosis: in 2030, Germany could be missing up to three million skilled workers. And ten years later this figure could rise to 3.3 million, according to a study published on Wednesday. The study, conducted by swiss research institute Prognos AG on behalf of the Bavarian Industry Association (vbw), predicts Germany will lack millions of skilled workers, technical and medical workers and researchers in the near future.

Japan's job-market shows an incredible ratio

Japanese labour market conditions remain incredibly strong, according to data released by the Japanese government today. Japan's job openings-to-applicants ratio came to 1.52 in July on seasonally adjusted terms, rising 0.01 of a point from June and improving for the fifth straight month, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare said on Tuesday. The ratio measures the number of jobs available compared to the number of active job seekers. That means that for every 100 people seeking work in July, there were 152 jobs available, the most since February 1974. July's ratio exceeded that seen in the early 1990s, during Japan's economic bubble era.

Brexit is pushing up to a million skilled worker away from UK

Almost a million EU citizens working in Britain – many of them young, highly qualified and much sought-after by businesses – are either planning to leave the country or have already made up their minds to go as a result of Brexit, a study has found. A survey of 2,000 EU workers in Britain by KPMG, the professional services firm, found that 55% of those with PhDs and 49% of those with postgraduate degrees were either planning to go or were actively considering it. If all of those considering departure actually left, it would reduce the UK’s national workforce by 3.1% - almost one million people - said the consultancy firm.

Brexit will help Frankfurt to become a Little London

Brexit is set to deliver a much-heralded jobs boom with over 80,000 new roles to be created in Frankfurt. A new report released by lobby group Frankfurt Main Finance found that the expected influx of 10,000 financial services staff over the next four years - fuelled by relocation plans and a banking exodus from London - will result in the creation of up to 87,667 new roles throughout the Rhein-Main-Region.

Brexodus: Uk immigration drops after Brexit vote

Net migration to Britain has fallen to a three-year low as a growing number of European Union citizens have left the country following last year's Brexit referendum. Data released Thursday by the Office for National Statistics provides evidence that the uncertainty and economic jitters caused by Britain's vote to quit the EU are deterring immigrants and sparking a "Brexodus."

Brexit's mistakes: EU citizens received letters to leave UK

The Home Office sent about 100 letters "in error" to EU citizens living in the UK, telling them they were liable for "detention". The mistake emerged after a Finnish academic, who has the right to live in the UK, received one of the letters. Eva Johanna Holmberg, a visiting academic fellow from the University of Helsinki at Queen Mary University of London, was told in the letter that she had a month to leave. She has lived in the UK with her British husband for most of the last decade.

UK: Freedom of movement? No thanks, we chose Brexit

Freedom of movement for millions of British and EU citizens will end in 2019 when Brexit takes effect, the U.K. government insisted on Monday. The statement appeared to rule out transitional post-Brexit arrangements recently raised by a senior British minister.  “There were reports last week that we were looking for an off-the-shelf model; we are not looking for an off-the-shelf model. Precisely what the implementation model will look like is up for negotiation,” a government spokesperson said, adding more confusion to Brexit affairs.
