MAXIMUS Awarded New Health and Work Service Program for the United Kingdom’s Department for Work and Pensions Jul 25, 2014 09:42AM

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MAXIMUS (NYSE: MMS), a leading provider of government services worldwide, announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Health Management Limited, will operate the new Health and Work Service (HWS) program on behalf of the United Kingdom’s Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). The 63-month contract will begin on August 1, 2014 and will run through October 31, 2019.

The goal of the HWS program is to help employees manage their medical conditions more effectively by providing timely access to clinical services for non-emergency care and get them on a path to return to work. Under the program, Health Management clinicians will offer medical assessments and return-to-work plans for employees who have been absent from work for four consecutive weeks due to illness. Clinicians will conduct consultations to identify the factors preventing an employee from returning to work and then recommend a return-to-work plan.

The service will launch on a phased basis beginning with the North of England, Midlands and Wales by late 2014, then nationally by May 2015. While these services are available to all employees, given the qualifying length of absence, most referrals will likely come from general practitioners, as well as employers who do not have existing occupational health programs.

“The Health and Work Service program is a natural opportunity to demonstrate Health Management’s expertise as the UK’s largest occupational health care provider and an important step in our long-term goal of expanding in this important market,” commented Richard A. Montoni, Chief Executive Officer of MAXIMUS. “While we expect an initial start-up loss due to the nature of the contract, the overall program economics are strong and once ramped, the contract is in-line with our targeted range of portfolio performance. This is a great example of the opportunities that we have to continue our growth and generate long-term shareholder value, while at the same time delivering our clients the outcomes that matter to their programs. We remain firmly committed to delivering the highest level of service to the Department for Work and Pensions as well as the individuals served by the HWS program.”

Greenberg Traurig Hosts Women, Business and the Law 2014 Roundtable Event Jul 25, 2014 09:40AM

Miami, FL (PRWEB) July 25, 2014

Alexandra Aguirre, a Miami shareholder in the Corporate and Securities Practice at international law firm Greenberg Traurig, served as part of a panel discussion during a Women, Business and the Law 2014 roundtable event.

The event was hosted by Americas Society/Council of the Americas in collaboration with the World Bank Group.

Paula Tavares, a legal analyst from the World Bank, presented the findings from a report examining laws and regulations that impact women's opportunities to work worldwide.

The report discussed the restrictions on gender equality such as economic, domestic violence and sexual harassment legislation. Key statistics from the Women, Business and the Law 2014 report included:

In almost 90 percent of the 143 economies examined by the report, women face at least one legal restriction that impacts their economic opportunities differently from men in the same economy

The countries that place the most restrictions on women are concentrated in the Middle East, North Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa

About 25 percent of the 100 economies measured have no laws on domestic violence

Aguirre provided commentary on the study's findings and prospects for women as entrepreneurs and employees. Other panelists included Carmen González-Sanfeliu, Regional Vice President, Latin America & Caribbean, Intelsat; and Ana Salas Siegel, SVP and Deputy General Counsel, Fox International Channels.

"When you see how slowly voluntary change has been in Latin America, quotas regarding the advancement of women would help to accelerate progress," said Aguirre, referring particularly to the advancement of women in public sector executive positions. "I am hopeful that this report will lead to more opportunities and better working conditions for women around the world."

Aguirre focuses her practice in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, domestic and international corporate transactions, corporate finance, and debt and equity private placements throughout Latin America, with an emphasis on Mexico and Central America. She also advises families in matters relating to running privately held businesses. Aguirre serves as a member of both the American and International Bar Associations and holds the FFI GEN Advanced Certificate in Family Business Advising (ACFBA).
