Footnote. The Employment Insurance Commission allows the Employer a credit against premiums because of the Region's sick leave plan and it has been agreed that this credit as it applies to employees in this unit is to be used to delete the deductibles of $10.00 and $20.00 for the Extended Health Care Plan.
Footnote. The views and opinions of current students have significantly informed the development of our access and retention strategies and drafting of this Agreement. Students have been consulted through their Student Union sabbatical officers including via formal (consultative committees), semi formal (working breakfast), and informal consultative mechanisms with a wider range of students. We have also consulted with pre-entry Year 12/13 students. This agreement seeks to adhere to the spirit of the OFFA guidance reflecting both the existing performance of the University and our ambitions to maintain and enhance access and retention. However, this document has been prepared in the context of a rapidly changing and uncertain environment. The University is currently drafting a new strategic plan to be adopted from July 2011. Issues may need to be revisited in light of any agreed significant changes of strategic direction. The University will contact OFFA to discuss any proposed revisions.

We have reservations whether this indicator is sufficiently robust to be assessed annually to a fine degree of detail when 20% of the data cohort are of 'unknown social class'.

Footnote. The arrangements between the management of primary and secondary teachers are different because of the generic GTCS Registration of primary teachers as opposed to the subject specific Registration of secondary teachers. At all stages above, staff who fall into any category are strongly advised to apply for any positions which interest them.
Footnote. The second and third sub articles of Article 115 of the TCO regulate the exceptions to this rule. According to the second sub article, if there is a service contract between parties, an agreement that states a debtor will not be liable even for slight negligence is invalid. Al- though the mentioned Article is criticised for several reasons, the aim of the lawmaker is to protect the employee, who is the weaker party. The third sub article of the same Article reg- ulates the invalidity of agreements based on a debtor’s non-liability in event of an activity conducted by permission of a competent au- thority and requiring proficiency. Yukarıda da ifade edildiği gibi, borçlunun söz konusu tazmin yükümlülüğü, asli edim yükümlülüğünün yerine getirilmemesi so- nucu ortaya çıkan bir yan yükümlülüktür. Dolayısıyla sorumsuzluk anlaşmasının ko- nusu, sözleşmedeki asli yükümlülükler de- ğildir. Başka bir ifade ile sorumsuzluk xxxxx- xxxx ile önlenmek istenen sorumluluk, edim yükümlülüğü değil, tali edim yükümlülüğü açısından ortaya çıkan sorumluluktur.59 Do- layısıyla, sorumsuzluk anlaşması, borçluya sözleşmeden xxxxx xxxx edim yükümlülük- lerini ifa edip etmeme gibi bir serbestlik tanı- mamaktadır.60 Taraflar aralarında anlaşarak bir tarafın sözleşmeden xxxxx xxxx edim yükümlülüğünü yerine getirip getirmemek- te serbest olacağı konusunda anlaşabilirler ancak xxxxx bir anlaşma sorumsuzluk an- laşması olarak nitelendirilmeyecektir. Başka bir ifadeyle, borçlu lehine geçerli bir şekilde sorumsuzluk anlaşması yapılmış olsa bile, borçlu sözleşmeden xxxxx xxxx yükümlülük- lerini yerine getirmek zorundadır.61
Footnote. 33 For greater certainty, when a respondent chooses to disclose to the tribunal information that may be withheld in accordance with Article 29.2 (Security Exceptions) or Article 29.7 (Disclosure of Information), the respondent may still withhold that information from disclosure to the public. 4. Any protected information that is submitted to the tribunal shall be protected from disclosure in accordance with the following procedures: (a) subject to subparagraph (d), neither the disputing parties nor the tribunal shall disclose to any non‐disputing Party or to the public any protected information if the disputing party that provided the information clearly designates it in accordance with subparagraph (b); (a) any disputing party claiming that certain information constitutes protected information shall clearly designate the information according to any schedule set by the tribunal; (c) a disputing party shall, according to any schedule set by the tribunal, submit a redacted version of the document that does not contain the protected information. Only the redacted version shall be disclosed in accordance with paragraph 1; and (d) the tribunal, subject to paragraph 3, shall decide any objection regarding the designation of information claimed to be protected information. If the tribunal determines that the information was not properly designated, the disputing party that submitted the information may: (i) withdraw all or part of its submission containing that information; or (ii) agree to resubmit complete and redacted documents with corrected designations in accordance with the tribunal’s determination and subparagraph (c). In either case, the other disputing party shall, whenever necessary, resubmit complete and redacted documents which either remove the information withdrawn under subparagraph (d)(i) by the disputing party that first submitted the information or redesignate the information consistent with the designation under subparagraph (d)(ii) of the disputing party that first submitted the information. 5. Nothing in this Section requires a respondent to withhold from the public information required to be disclosed by its laws. The respondent should endeavour to apply those laws in a manner sensitive to protecting from disclosure information that has been designated as protected information. Article 9.25:
Footnote. The intent of this Clause is a follows: the registered or certified notification shall be deemed to be received on the third calendar day after the date of mailing; the laid off employee has three working days to notify the employer of the employee’s intentions; an employee who has complied with above will have a three (3) working days from the expiry of the time period in above to return to duty. Employees notifying the Region within the three (3) days referred to in above, that they are unable to return to work within the prescribed time for a legitimate reason acceptable to the Region, will not have their name struck from the seniority list. Their name, however, may be passed over and the next in line in seniority may be recalled. These time limitations may be extended in writing for valid reasons such as sickness certified by a doctor’s certificate, death in the immediate family, accident, and other legitimate reasons acceptable to the Region;
Footnote. 30 For the purposes of this Section, a Party may deem the terms “inventive step” and “capable of industrial application” to be synonymous with the terms “non‐obvious” and “useful”, respectively. In determinations regarding inventive step, or non‐ obviousness, each Party shall consider whether the claimed invention would have been obvious to a person skilled, or having ordinary skill in the art, having regard to the prior art. 2. Subject to paragraphs 3 and 4 and consistent with paragraph 1, each Party confirms that patents are available for inventions claimed as at least one of the following: new uses of a known product, new methods of using a known product, or new processes of using a known product. A Party may limit those new processes to those that do not claim the use of the product as such. 3. A Party may exclude from patentability inventions, the prevention within their territory of the commercial exploitation of which is necessary to protect ordre public or morality, including to protect human, animal or plant life or health or to avoid serious prejudice to nature or the environment, provided that such exclusion is not made merely because the exploitation is prohibited by its law. A Party may also exclude from patentability: (a) diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical methods for the treatment of humans or animals; (b) animals other than microorganisms, and essentially biological processes for the production of plants or animals, other than non‐ biological and microbiological processes. 4. A Party may also exclude from patentability plants other than microorganisms. However, consistent with paragraph 1 and subject to paragraph 3, each Party confirms that patents are available at least for inventions that are derived from plants.
