Australias workplace oversight body, the FairWork Ombudsman, has queried Cricket Australias contract clauses around female players, compelling the chief executive James Sutherland to state that policies relating to pregnancy, maternity leave and carer support are all under urgent review. Jordan 5 China For Sale .Sutherland confirmed that the ombudsman had been in contact with CA on Friday, following the raising of issues around female contracts in news coverage of ongoing pay negotiations between the board and the Australian Cricketers Association. While stating that CA will co-operate fully with any investigation, Sutherland lashed out at the ACA for how the contract clauses had come to light, adding that the players association had agreed to them in the first place.We will co-operate fully with the Ombudsman, and welcome their inquiries because it is always our intention to provide the best support for all our players, Sutherland said. We are extremely disappointed that this issue has been raised by the ACA.Their senior executives were fully involved in negotiating, amending and then agreeing on the contract for women players in the first half of 2015. As the ACA has shown no objection to this contract, they should take responsibility for their role in developing the current policy.Late on Saturday the ACA responded to Sutherlands criticism of the decision to publicly raise the issues around CAs pregnancy policy for female players.* In the formation of the ACAs MOU submission, female players having to warrant they were not pregnant was one issue among many that was raised by our members throughout our consultation, the ACA said in a statement.The ACA rejects the proposition that it should not have raised the issue; silence is not the solution. It is critical that these areas are addressed throughout the MOU process.Furthermore, to hear that female players stand to receive better terms and conditions under a new MOU is pleasing and we will be working to ensure that all players are protected under a new agreement. Eighteen months ago, the ACA was consulted on the development of the relevant policy and contract, and suggested some improvements which CA accepted. CA said yesterday it took expert advice on the policy at the time it was issued.Further heat had been placed on CA by a BBC interview overnight with the ECB director of cricket Clare Connor, who stated that all England women players were eligible for the same maternity leave entitlements offered to all ECB employees, and that they were not required to declare whether or not they were pregnant before signing a contract.The situation with England players is very different from that, Connor said. We treat our centrally contracted players as we would treat any other female non-playing ECB employee. So, they are supported by the full terms of our maternity conditions for all employees, so Heather Knight would be treated the same as me, for example. And they are certainly not required to declare if they are pregnant before signing their ECB contract.I think Cricket Australia have responded to what came out in the press by saying that this clause is to protect the players and to make sure that the medical officers and the physios and everybody are fully aware of the health status of their players. I think, in this day and age, you cant mandate such things. I think it is up to an individual to take responsibility for their own health and whether they are putting themselves or an unborn baby at risk by playing sport, and in terms of the progression of a possible pregnancy. So, it doesnt make great reading, does it?Sutherland denied the above clause had been a stumbling block for women players signing to play in CA sanctioned competitions. As I said yesterday, the pregnancy clause has never affected a female players right to sign a contract, and we have never, nor would we ever, discriminate against anyone on those grounds, he said. It has only been about ensuring the safety of our players.Despite this, we will continue to focus on ensuring Cricket Australia does the very best for our women players to grow their game and encourage more girls and women to pick up a bat and ball, with their health and safety always at the forefront of everything we do.Another issue expected to be placed under the spotlight is the discrepancy in medical support offered to women players in the Womens National Cricket League, the equivalent of the Sheffield Shield. A doctor is a mandatory presence at all mens matches, plus Womens BBL games, but WNCL matches are only served by the presence of a paramedic.*09.55GMT, December 17: This article was updated with the ACA statement Cheap Jordan 5 Shoes Sale . Miikka Kiprusoff had just announced his retirement after a decade-long run in Calgary and it would be up to Berra and Ramo to fill the void. Cheap Air Jordan 5 Online . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. http://www.airjordan5cheap.com/ . Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Maybe all the Carolina Panthers needed was to play someone other than the Denver Broncos.The leagues top-scoring offense from a year ago returned to form Sunday. Cam Newton threw for 353 yards and four touchdowns, and the Panthers overcame four turnovers to beat the San Francisco 49ers 46-27 in their home opener. The Panthers racked up 529 yards on offense.Carolina lost to Denver in the Super Bowl and again in a rematch in Week 1, combining to score 30 points in those games. The Panthers averaged 31.3 points per game last season.Newton threw two TD passes to Kelvin Benjamin and one each to Greg Olsen and Devin Funchess to pass Jake Delhomme for most TD passes in franchise history with 122.Newton showed no ill effects from the four helmet-to-helmet hits he took in Carolinas season-opening loss to Denver. He took one shot to the head from linebacker Eli Harold late in the game after a pitchout on an option play, but quickly got to his feet.Its one of things those things where the momentum sways the play calling, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. This game we were able to run the ball and it opened some things up. Last week (against Denver) we needed Cam to open some things up. Cam will play his role for us. This was an example of being able to keep him out of the running game for the most part.Newtons first pass was tipped and intercepted by Antoine Bethea, leading to a 49ers field goal. But the 2015 league MVP locked in after that, completing 24 of 40 passes while running for 37 yards on six carries.Olsen gave the Panthers (1-1) the lead for good in the second quarter when he hauled in a career-long 78-yard touchdown pass from Newton after the 49ers bit hard on play-action. That left the Pro Bowl tight end wide open on a seam route. Olsen finished with five catches for 122 yards.Benjamin, who missed last season with a torn ACL, finished with seven catches for 108 yards and has three TD catches on the season.Most of the DBs that were on me were small and I was able to jump and get the ball, Benjamin said. Air Jordan 5 Cheap Wholesale. Bethea said the 49ers (1-1) didnt play up to par after their 28-0 performance against the Rams last week.We didnt do a great job of getting off the field on third down, Bethea said. And were going up against a very good offense. We can tackle better, too, but everything is correctable.WHAT WAS THAT?: The Panthers won despite the four turnovers, including one colossal mistake by returner Ted Ginn Jr., who failed to pick up the ball on a kickoff return. After Ginn bobbled the ball twice, the 49ers recovered at the 1-yard line and scored on the next play.FOZZY BEAR ON THE RUN: Despite losing running back Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) in the first quarter, the Panthers had no problems moving the ball against a defense that was riding high following a 28-0 win over the Rams in the season opener.Fozzy Whittaker ran for 100 yards on 16 carries and had three catches for 31 yards.Rivera said he has concerns about Stewart moving forward, but that second-year back Cameron Artis-Payne is ready for action. Artis-Payne has been inactive the last two games.GABBERTS DAY: Blaine Gabbert threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score in the loss. Gabbert pulled the 49ers within 34-27 late with a 75-yard touchdown pass to Vance McDonald, but threw two interceptions in the games final five minutes.FIRST TOUCHDOWN: Panthers linebacker Shaq Thompson scored his first career touchdown when he scooped up Carlos Hydes fumble and returned it 9 yards to give Carolina a 7-3 lead.INJURY UPDATE49ers: Linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong left in the second half with a shoulder injury.Panthers: Stewart was limited to 9 yards rushing on five carries when he went down in the first quarter.BY THE NUMBERSNewton reached 121 career TD passes in 2,480 attempts, while Delhomme had 120 in 2,669 attempts.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike Basketball Jerseys Hockey Jerseys China Supply Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Sale Authentic College Jerseys MLB Jerseys China Stitched Soccer Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Jerseys ' ' '
