[PASSED] RIGHTS OF THE EMPLOYED

Postby The Greater Soviet North America » Fri May 01, 2020 12:26 pm

Rights of the Employed
A resolution to improve worldwide human individual and civil rights.
Category: Civil Rights
Strength: Strong


Co-authored by Tinhampton

The World Assembly,

Taking note of the numerous national and international laws that recognize a range of rights for workers;

Noting with regret that, despite all the rights that cover the previously cited laws, the workforce is still struggling to assert those rights;

Deeply concerned that this governing body does not have a resolution explicitly stating the rights of workers in their place of employment;
  1. Defines a "worker" as an individual who currently has a contract with an employer which entails carrying out particular tasks for that employer with the expectation of a regular monetary reward, including those individuals who are currently shadowing workers or are working as interns for that employer;
  2. Declares accordingly that this resolution, although not an exhaustive list of the rights possessed by all workers, is intended to ensure that they are aware of the rights they hold by law, as well as any protections from the unjust treatment they may be subjected to;
  3. Further declares accordingly that this resolution shall be applicable to all workers, except for Article E(3), which applies only to workers of lactating species such as humans and cows;
  4. Clarifies that workers in Member States shall enjoy protection from:
    1. dismissal, suspension from work, discrimination, and salary reduction as a result of childbirth or claiming maternity, paternity, and adoption leave ("parental leave");
    2. discrimination on the grounds of gender identity, gender expression or sexual identity, including pay discrimination and unfair dismissal;
    3. being subject to hostile, offensive or intimidating behavior (including sexual harassment, domestic violence, and other unwanted approaches) as a condition of becoming or remaining employed, or otherwise in the course of their employment; and
    4. being retaliated against by their employer for participating in a trial or tribunal regarding discriminatory employment practices;
  5. Further clarifies that each worker in Member States:
    1. shall have the right to claim at least eight weeks of parental leave, during which they must receive their full expected wage from their employer, upon childbirth or adoption of a child below the age of majority;
    2. shall have the right to claim at least four weeks of this parental leave after childbirth or adoption of a child below the age of majority;
    3. who can prove to their employer that they cannot avoid breastfeeding their children in the workplace shall be entitled to:
      1. a private, safe, hygienic and ventilated area in that workplace, separate from any toilets that may exist on-site, which shall be reserved for the sole purpose of breastfeeding; and
      2. a period of the working day set aside for breastfeeding; which shall be equal to one-eighth of their working day, may also be divided into two or three equal periods and must be guaranteed for up to one year after the end of their parental leave;
  6. Encourages employers to promulgate policies on sexual harassment in the workplace, including by establishing fair and effective internal tribunals to deal with complaints thereof.

[Draft] BILL OF RIGHTS OF WORKING WOMEN

1) This is merely a draft of the law.
2) This law focuses on the rights of women in the workforce, who continue to struggle to exercise those same rights.
3) If you want to submit a law on the rights of men, go ahead.
4) This law does not discriminate on the basis of sex or gender.

Uh, it assures those rights to women. But ME ME ME

On #2, what do you mean they struggle? What rights don't they have?

The WA is not based on RL events, (I think, you're the experienced one! :blush: )and i don't know any WA nations that don't have equal rights for both genders.

IC: All rights in the WA through resolutions apply to everybody, without exception.

OOC: This is not the RW. When Rights are given here, they apply to all. I would recommend you read through the passed resolutions because there is some duplication here.

I understand and am currently well informed that all rights in the WA that are guaranteed through the passage of resolutions are applicable to everybody.
I am well aware that this is not the real world. I have read through previously passed resolutions, as you have recommended, and from the ones that I have read that are relevant to the subject of which I am discussing, I have not seen any kind of resolution that makes a primary focus on the rights of women in the workforce.
I have read the Charter of Civil Rights, GA #35, but I believe that there is room for improvement.
If you could, is it possible that you could please point out the duplications?

The Greater Soviet North America is open to addressing any concerns communicated to the nation and its leadership. However, the government and people of the Greater Soviet North America ask the Stellar Colonies in what way does this proposal not have any appreciable benefit for the so-called number of nations in the World Assembly? How many so-called number of nations in the World Assembly are we talking about? What kind of details are these so-called number of nations in the World Assembly presenting when it comes to an alternative proposal?

The reason for the establishment of the arbitrary numbers is because the timing is best described in detail, which is necessary for employees to understand that a woman in the workforce who is pregnant or has had a child must be given the right to have an amount of time to take maternity leave or care for her child.

This isnt a Bill of Rights for women, this is a law, which is repeatable concerning pregnancy and maternity leave in the workplace. The title is very misleading.

On a different note, arbitrary timings are generally unhelpful. Some cultures may place motherhood as being more or less important than other cultures, which would necessitate different levels of maternal leave.”

Not all mothers in WA member states are lactating (some of them could lay eggs, for instance), and not all of them adhere to RW Earth's 365-day calendar. Now I'm even more tempted to publish that proposed complete rewrite of your Bill of Rights (in this thread, of course) I've had laying about for a few hours...

The majority of the mentions in regards to arbitrary timing have been eliminated.

The rewrite I threatened earlier :P This one is 3,332 characters, which is about two-thirds of the current character limit (and would have fit within the old character limit). I hope it reads much less confusingly. For instance, regarding breastfeeding times:
  • your draft: "working women [have] the right to... enjoy a period of lactation or breast milk extraction of one (1) hour per full-time workday [or] a thirty (30) minute period of breastfeeding or expressing breast milk for each period of four (4) consecutive hours of work, in case the daily workday is partial and exceeds four (4 ) hours"
  • the below draft: "working women [shall] be entitled to... a period of the working day set aside for breastfeeding; which shall be equal to one eighth of their working day [and] may also be divided into two or three equal periods"
I do ask that, if you use all (or a significant portion) of this text, then you keep the "Co-authored by Tinhampton" notice that I have inserted at the top of this total rewrite.

Rights of Working Women
A resolution to improve worldwide human sapient and civil rights.
Category: Civil Rights
Strength: Strong

Co-authored by Tinhampton.

Observing, with dismay, the struggle of women in the workplace in attempting to assert the rights that have nevertheless been guaranteed to them in prior international law; and

Believing that it would be beneficial to pass a resolution which, by explicitly enumerating the rights of working women, should have the effect of educating those women about their rights and the population at large about the necessity of eradicating sex-based discrimination;

The General Assembly enacts, with immediate effect, the following Bill of Rights of Working Women.
  1. A "working woman," for the purposes of this resolution, is a female sapient being who has a contract with an employer, which entails carrying out particular tasks for that employer with the expectation of a regular monetary reward.
  2. This resolution must not be read as impairing the rights that working women already have, implicitly or explicitly, in prior and standing international law; nor to prevent the passage of future legislation on the rights of working women which goes above and beyond the requirements outlined below.
  3. This resolution applies to all working women, except for Article f, which applies only to women of lactating species such as humans and cows.
  4. Working women in member states shall have protection from:
    1. dismissal, suspension from work, discrimination, and salary reduction as a result of becoming pregnant or claiming maternity leave,
    2. discrimination on the grounds of sex, including pay discrimination and unfair dismissal,
    3. being subject to hostile, offensive or intimidating behaviour (including sexual harassment, domestic violence, and other unwanted approaches) as a condition of becoming or remaining employed, or otherwise in the course of their employment, and
    4. being retaliated against by their employer for participating in a trial or tribunal regarding discriminatory employment practices.
  5. Working women in member states shall have the right to claim at least eight weeks of maternity leave, during which they must receive their full expected wage from their employer, upon giving birth to a child (or adopting a child below the age of majority). At least four weeks of this maternity leave must be claimed after the mother gives birth (or adopts the child).
  6. Working women in member states who can prove to their employer that they cannot avoid breastfeeding their children in the workplace shall be entitled to:
    1. a private, safe, hygienic and ventilated area in that workplace, separate from any toilets that may exist on site, which shall be reserved for the sole purpose of breastfeeding, and
    2. a period of the working day set aside for breastfeeding; which shall be equal to one eighth of their working day, may also be divided into two or three equal periods, and must guaranteed for up to one year after the end of their maternity leave.
  7. Member states are strongly urged to guarantee the rights described in Article d(ii), Article d(iii) and Article d(iv) to all other members of the workforce, including men and non-binary people.

Tinhampton wrote:The rewrite I threatened earlier :P This one is 3,332 characters, which is about two-thirds of the current character limit (and would have fit within the old character limit). I hope it reads much less confusingly. For instance, regarding breastfeeding times:
  • your draft: "working women [have] the right to... enjoy a period of lactation or breast milk extraction of one (1) hour per full-time workday [or] a thirty (30) minute period of breastfeeding or expressing breast milk for each period of four (4) consecutive hours of work, in case the daily workday is partial and exceeds four (4 ) hours"
  • the below draft: "working women [shall] be entitled to... a period of the working day set aside for breastfeeding; which shall be equal to one eighth of their working day [and] may also be divided into two or three equal periods"
I do ask that, if you use all (or a significant portion) of this text, then you keep the "Co-authored by Tinhampton" notice that I have inserted at the top of this total rewrite.

Rights of Working Women
A resolution to improve worldwide human sapient and civil rights.
Category: Civil Rights
Strength: Strong

Co-authored by Tinhampton.

Observing, with dismay, the struggle of women in the workplace in attempting to assert the rights that have nevertheless been guaranteed to them in prior international law; and

Believing that it would be beneficial to pass a resolution which, by explicitly enumerating the rights of working women, should have the effect of educating those women about their rights and the population at large about the necessity of eradicating sex-based discrimination;

The General Assembly enacts, with immediate effect, the following Bill of Rights of Working Women.
  1. A "working woman," for the purposes of this resolution, is a female sapient being who has a contract with an employer, which entails carrying out particular tasks for that employer with the expectation of a regular monetary reward.
  2. This resolution must not be read as impairing the rights that working women already have, implicitly or explicitly, in prior and standing international law; nor to prevent the passage of future legislation on the rights of working women which goes above and beyond the requirements outlined below.
  3. This resolution applies to all working women, except for Article f, which applies only to women of lactating species such as humans and cows.
  4. Working women in member states shall have protection from:
    1. dismissal, suspension from work, discrimination, and salary reduction as a result of becoming pregnant or claiming maternity leave,
    2. discrimination on the grounds of sex, including pay discrimination and unfair dismissal,
    3. being subject to hostile, offensive or intimidating behaviour (including sexual harassment, domestic violence, and other unwanted approaches) as a condition of becoming or remaining employed, or otherwise in the course of their employment, and
    4. being retaliated against by their employer for participating in a trial or tribunal regarding discriminatory employment practices.
  5. Working women in member states shall have the right to claim at least eight weeks of maternity leave, during which they must receive their full expected wage from their employer, upon giving birth to a child (or adopting a child below the age of majority). At least four weeks of this maternity leave must be claimed after the mother gives birth (or adopts the child).
  6. Working women in member states who can prove to their employer that they cannot avoid breastfeeding their children in the workplace shall be entitled to:
    1. a private, safe, hygienic and ventilated area in that workplace, separate from any toilets that may exist on site, which shall be reserved for the sole purpose of breastfeeding, and
    2. a period of the working day set aside for breastfeeding; which shall be equal to one eighth of their working day, may also be divided into two or three equal periods, and must guaranteed for up to one year after the end of their maternity leave.
  7. Member states are strongly urged to guarantee the rights described in Article d(ii), Article d(iii) and Article d(iv) to all other members of the workforce, including men and non-binary people.
  8. Employers are encouraged to promulgate policies on sexual harassment in the workplace, including by establishing fair and effective internal tribunals to deal with complaints thereof.
