BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Unfair bias against U.K.'s infirm, says DRC


LONDON--Many employers in the United Kingdom are still treating employees with breast cancer and other long-term health conditions unfairly, despite legislation introduced last year to stop such discrimination, according to the Disability Rights Commission.

The DRC said that since an amendment to the Disability Discrimination Act was introduced in December 2005, it had taken an average of two calls per week from women with breast cancer complaining of unfair treatment at work.

The Disability Discrimination Act amendment was intended to protect workers with long-term health conditions such a cancer and multiple sclerosis against workplace discrimination from the point of diagnosis.
