Further, some federal, state, and local laws require you to inform employees in writing about certain policies, so you should familiarize yourself with those requirements by visiting the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).Whether you are starting your first employee handbook, or you are revamping your existing handbook, take a look at a few of the must-haves to make sure you have a complete handbook that will protect you legally and give your employees a thorough understanding of your company and the expectations you have for them. continue reading »last_img read more

Let Gernot Rohr go, Odegbami tells NFF

first_img “In 1968, for example, at the Mexico Olympic Games, a Nigerian, according to some people the best Nigerian player of all time, Teslim Thunder Balogun, coached the Green Eagles that played against the greatest football nation on earth at the time, Brazil, to a pulsating, well-earned 2-2 draw. That’s over half a Century ago! The surviving members of the 1973 All-Africa Games Green Eagles that won the Gold medal can testify that, the brain behind that victory was another great former ex-international player, Captain and then assistant coach of the team, Mr. Dan Anyiam, a very intelligent, eloquent, well-trained and educated coach. The exploits of Stephen Keshi of recent years as a coach are unmatched by any coach local or foreign in our entire history. Are these not Nigerians? “If we had continued in the trajectory of using the best trained Nigerians as our national coaches, inviting foreign coaches without pedigree to handle their national team in concession to their ‘superiority’ would not arise in 2020. Gernot Rohr has done his bit and collected his wages. Every month he was paid $50,000 Dollars? Who earns that kind of money for the amount of work he did in the years of his stay in Nigeria? It is ludicrous. What did he really do? Did he win any international trophies for Nigeria? Did he impact the Nigerian league and domestic players in any way? Did he train any Nigerian coaches to be able to take over from him? The longest time he stayed with the national team for any stretch was a maximum of four weeks, twice in the 4 years of his expiring contract – before and during the World Cup in 2018, and before AFCON in 2019. Every other time all he did was assemble players from Europe two days to a match, selected his lineup for the match and returned to his paid ‘vacation’. Which Nigerian coach worth any salt cannot do what he did for Nigeria? Is that what anyone should earn $50,000 Dollars a month for? Even the scouting for Nigerian-born players in Europe that constitute a large percentage of his team presently is done by a hardworking Nigerian man, Tunde Adelakun, we are told. Now with Covid-19 and its economic consequences, no one should even be thinking of expending unavailable foreign exchange for a job Nigerians can handle and that does not require rocket science, period. To suggest a wage-cut is even annoying. Was the size of his wage the reason for his failure? We are entering a new phase in the ongoing War of global Civilizations. No African should promote color or racial superiority in African football. No Nigerian dares do so at this point. read also:Odegbami: Nigeria May Never See Another Rashidi Yekini So, I choose to be foolish. I shall thank Gernot Rohr for all the good services he has rendered and release him. I shall get one of our own qualified sons, and sink or swim with him into that emerging new world order beyond Covid-19.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… The former Green Eagles and Shooting Stars Football Club striker stated in his column that Nigerians should not see Rohr as the best option for the national team job, saying the country is blessed with qualified coaches to perform the magic. “I shall disregard what the promoters of Gernot Rohr are saying that no Nigerian coach is qualified enough to handle the national football team of the country even after the German had failed in his years as the manager to deliver on the soft mandates given to him. To think this way is disrespectful and denigrating to all Black people. To imagine that the German is now willing to accept new conditions deliberately designed for him to reject, means there is more to the whole matter than meets the eye, or he knows the value of the Super Eagles’ job more than his Nigerian bosses do. Is it because he loves the country more than Nigerians? Who really loves the Nigerian? Covid-19 pandemic has become an eye-opener. “I choose to be foolish on the matter of Gernot Rohr. Let him go ‘jeje’ with his ‘superior’ knowledge of football and serve elsewhere. “We forget our history and the capacity of Nigerians to succeed. Nigeria’s football legend, Chief Olusegun Odegbami, has urged Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, not to renew the contract of Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr.

CWI/PCL 4-day tournament….

first_imgSeamers put Jaguars on topTHE Guyana Jaguars’ seamers produced a sensational bowling display to keep the three-time defending champions on track for victory against Barbados Pride in the fifth round Cricket West Indies (CWI) Professional Cricket League (PCL) four-day game at the National Stadium, Providence yesterday.Pacer Keemo Paul struck four vital blows while Sherefane Rutherford and Keon Joseph grabbed the other three wickets to leave the tourists facing a difficult final day.Leading by 20 runs, the Jaguars then rocked the visitors in their second innings, and when bad light stopped play, the Pride were tottering on 126-7, a lead of 106 runs.Paul claimed 4-38 in an incisive, 17.2-over spell while Rutherford had 2-40, and Joseph 1-23.Earlier, night-watchman Gudakesh Motie rose to the occasion, scoring a gritty unbeaten 72 from 147 balls, inclusive of ten fours and a six, as the hosts took a vital first innings advantage.Resuming the day on 180-4, the three-times defending champions progressed to 219, with veteran batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul (30) adding 15 to his overnight total before left-arm spinner, Jomel Warrican (3-91), removed both Chanderpaul and Anthony Bramble (0) off consecutive deliveries.The 43-year-old Chanderpaul was caught and bowled, while Bramble was adjudged leg before wicket. However, Motie, who resumed the day on three, shared a 45-run seventh-wicket partnership with Paul; Motie flourished as his innings progressed.His fifty came off 97 balls, but soon after the partnership was broken when Paul (19) was bowled by Kenroy Williams shortly before lunch.After the interval Rutherford joined forces with Motie and contributed a 34-ball 25, which took the hosts pass the visitors first innings 294, before off-spinner Ashley Nurse (3-33), claimed the final three wickets of Rutherford (25), Veerasammy Permaul (4), and Keon Joseph (0).With the pitch starting to show some variable bounce, the visitors then made a poor start to their second innings, when Joseph had Shayne Moseley caught in the slip corridor for five with just nine runs on the board.Fellow opener Anthony Alleyne and Shamar Brooks (22) attempted to resurrect the innings, but immediately after tea, Paul had also found just enough movement to trouble Brooks, who was bowled by a ball that shaped to swing away but then straightened to pass between bat and pad, to make it 37-2.The 19-year-old Paul then dismissed Kevin Stoute (11), who was undone by a good ball that moved away fractionally off the seam.Alleyne and Williams then survived a testing period until Alleyne went off Rutherford for a 77-ball 32.But the Jaguars were further inspired by Paul, who trapped Williams leg before wicket for 11, before he had Justin Greaves taken at the wicket for one.Rutherford then bowled Ashley Nurse (1), but Jonathan Carter (14 not out) and Mario Rampersaud (one not out), survived until play ended.SCOREBOARDGUYANA JAGUARS 1st innings (O/N 180-4)T.
