This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.

Worker's Compensation Defense

Worker's Compensation Defense

Since every employee, by definition, must work for some employer, when there is a dispute over the benefits or the injury itself, these two primary entities find themselves in conflict within the system. These controversies are thereafter resolved through either negotiation or trial, and the practice of representing the employer side is referred to as workers’ compensation employer defense.

  • Workers’ compensation – Representing employees who have been injured on the job.
  • Personal injury – Representing people who have been injured due to the careless or reckless acts of other individuals or parties.
  • Workplace discrimination – Representing people who have experienced discrimination or harassment at work.

Since every employee, by definition, must work for some employer, when there is a dispute over the benefits or the injury itself, these two primary entities find themselves in conflict within the system.

Volunteer Firefighters and Ambulance Workers

Individual and group personal accident policies can be extended to cover medical expenses incurred in the treatment of an accident covered under the policy, subject to a limit of 10% of the sum insured or 40% of the death / disability compensation claim payable, on payment of additional premium.

The policy issued to Indian personnel working in foreign countries on civilian duty can be extended to cover War risk on payment of additional premium. The policy can also be restricted to cover Personal Accident risk during duty hours only or during off-duty hours only with discount in premium. It is also possible to issue group P.A. policy excluding the death benefit subject to a group life policy covering death benefit being taken for the same group of persons for the same policy period. Any adult residing in India can take the policy covering himself / herself and dependent family members between the ages of 5 and 70yrs.

Subrogation and Arbitration

Subrogation and Arbitration

The doctrine of subrogation can also pass proprietary rights such as a security interest or claim to ownership of goods. If a work of art is stolen, and the insurance company pays out under a policy of insurance to the owner and the art is later recovered, the art will belong to the insurance company under rights of subrogation.

In each case, the basic premise is that where one person (i.e. typically an insurer or a guarantor) makes a payment on an obligation which is the primary responsibility of another party, the person making the payment is subrogated to the claims of the person to whom they made the payment with respect to any claims or remedies which are exercisable against the primarily responsible party.

Contact our State Attorney Law Firm with your questions, comments or concerns.

Liability and Third-Party Defense

In many areas where subrogation arises as a matter of law, subrogation may be limited under the terms of the relevant contract. For example, in a contract of guarantee, the guarantee will often provide that the guarantor waives the right of subrogation or agrees not to exercise it unless the bank has been paid in full. In an insurance contract, in addition to right of subrogation at law, there will often be a right of subrogation bolstered by the insured party's agreement that the party will provide all necessary assistance to the insurance company in pursuing any subrogated claims.

In many areas where subrogation arises as a matter of law, subrogation may be limited under the terms of the relevant contract. For example, in a contract of guarantee, the guarantee will often provide that the guarantor waives the right of subrogation or agrees not to exercise it unless the bank has been paid in full.

These controversies are thereafter resolved through either negotiation or trial, and the practice of representing the employer side is referred to as workers’ compensation employer defense.

    ABOUT US

    The Administrator General’s office is a government Directorate under the Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs that deals with Inheritance and Succession matters. It is established by the Administrator General’s Act Cap 157and under Statutory Instrument S.I -161.The it also doubles as office of the Public Trustee.

    The Office of Administrator General is a corporation sole with perpetual succession and an official seal, capable of suing and being sued in all legal proceedings. However, the government represented by the Attorney General is still vicariously liable for all the Administrator General’s acts and/or omissions like any other Government.

    The operation of the Directorate is governed by the following laws; The Constitution of Uganda 1995, The Administrator General’s Act Cap157, The Succession Act Cap162, Public Trustee Act Cap161, Administration of estates (Small Estates) Special Provisions Act (Cap156) as amended, Trustee Act (cap164), (Local Administration (Performance Of Functions) Statutory Instrument No.150 of 1967,[1] The Estates of Missing Persons (Management) Act Cap 159, and Administration of Estates of Persons of Unsound Mind Act Cap 155.

    The Directorate is headed by the Administrator General who also doubles as a Public Trustee, The Administrator General is assisted by the Deputy Administrator General and other legal officers referred to as Assistant Administrator General.

    In fulfillment of its tasks the Directorate is assisted by agents appointed by the Minister and others appointed by the Administrator General. Currently our agents include the Chief Administrative Officers (CAO) of designated districts and the Gombolola (Sub County) chiefs. In Kampala, we use the Division mayors.

    The services of Directorate can also be assessed at our regional offices namely; Mbarara, Arua, Mbale, Gulu Moroto and now Fort portal office and soon at Soroti City regional office.

    [1] The Power vested in the Lukiiko by Section 2 of the Land Succession Law to issue Certificates of Succession in respect of estates administered according to customs of succession in the Kingdom of Buganda prior to 18th August, 1967, shall be exercised by the Administrator General.

    The mandate of the Directorate is to ensure that all estates of deceased persons, those of unsound mind and minors in Uganda are properly administered in accordance with the laws of Uganda governing Succession. In executing this mandate the Directorate carries out these duties;

    a) Administration of estates;

    The Directorate administers estates of deceased persons who die intestate (without leaving valid wills) or those where the deceased dies testate (leaves a Will) and appoints the Administrator General as executor or where the executors fail or decline to act and the circumstances warrant the Administrator General to do so or where he dies testate and appoints no executor at all.

     

    b) Issuance of certificates of no objection;

    The Directorate vets intending Administrators of estates and issues them with a clearance called a Certificate of No Objection allowing them to proceed to court and get letters of Administration.

     

    c) Public Trustee Role

    The Directorate is mandated to administer estates of persons of unsound mind and preservation and protection of estates of minors. In Uganda, the Public Trustee is established by an Act of Parliament that is Chapter 161 of the laws of Uganda. It is a corporation sole with capacity to sue and be sued.

     

    Section 2 of the Public Trustee Act, appoints the Administrator General as the Public Trustee. The Administrator General acts as trustee for estates where there are minors and persons of unsound mind.

    As a Public Trustee of deceased person’s estates, the Directorate has a responsibility to set trusts and investments for minors and persons of unsound mind.

     

    The Administrator General also has to ensure that the welfare of minors and persons of unsound mind and their rights are well protected. In fulfillment of this mandate, usually applications for issuance of certificates of no objection in cases where there are minors and persons of unsound mind are vetted strictly to ensure they are granted to responsible persons.

     

    d) Managing estates of missing persons

    Under The Estates of Missing Persons (Management) Act Cap 159, a missing person is a person who disappears from Uganda without making provision for the administration of his or her estate and investigations have shown that his or her whereabouts are not known. According to s.20 of Cap 159 after a period of three years such a person is presumed dead). The Administrator General may under this Act be appointed as manager of his/her estate.

     

    e) Management of succession registers:

    Following the abolition of the Buganda Kingdom in 1966, the Administrator General was given power to control the succession registers formally operated by the Kabaka’s government.[1] These relate to persons who died in the early 1940s-1966 and had as a matter of requirement to register with the Kabaka’s government, their properties, and dependant relatives and how they wanted the same shared amongst their survivors upon their demise. The Directorate of Administrator General facilitates beneficiaries to access this land and the properties registered in this succession Register books after proper verification.

     

    f) Collection of Non Tax Revenue;

    The Directorate charges fees on estates. Such fees include shs. 2000 for Certificate of no objection, shs. 2000 for the file and Death Report Forms and the Administrator General’s 1% fee of the value of land upon distribution, among others. These fees are collected as non-tax revenue and deposited in the consolidated fund.

     

    In carrying out the above duties the following activities are undertaken inter alia;

    a) Instituting Legal proceedings in courts of law against intermeddlers, fraudulent administrators of deceased’s estates, unscrupulous relatives and others for the recovery of deceased’s properties from wrong hands.

    The Directorate institutes suits against defaulting tenants, suits for recovery of the deceased’s debts, ownership of properties and most importantly suits against intermeddlers and fraudulent Administrators of deceased’s estates.

    Section 11 of the Administrator General’s Act provides for the offence of intermeddling and how it arises.

     

    S.11 (1)…….. When a person dies, whether within or without Uganda, leaving Property within Uganda, any person who, without being duly authorized by law or without the authority of the Administrator General or an agent, takes possession of, causes to be moved or otherwise intermeddles with any such property, except in so far as may be urgently necessary for the preservation of the property, or unlawfully refuses or neglects to deliver any such property to the Administrator General or his or her agent when called upon so to do, commits an offence;

     

     And any person taking any action in regard to any such property for the preservation of the property shall forthwith report particulars of the property and of the steps taken to the agent, and if that person fails so to report he or she commits an offence.

    b) Distributing properties of deceased persons (including money) to the beneficiaries of their estates and thereafter winding up of estates. c) Managing the interests/shares/properties of minors and persons of unsound mind which come under the control of the Public Trustee. d) Handling arbitrations, reconciliation, counseling and legal education:

    There is a lot of ignorance of the law of Succession and institutions governing inheritance on the part of the general public.  People think they have the right to intervene and manage the property of their deceased’s kin without any authorization from anyone.

     

    The relatives believe that they are the right people to take over the estate because the children and the widow, like property are supposed to be distributed and looked after by the relatives.

    There is also an old customary belief that once you were named heir you take over all the property of the deceased and it’s upon your discretion to distribute this property.

     

    In all the above circumstances, it has been the role of the Directorate to educate counsel parties and resolve wrangles. Almost 70% of the Administrator General’s work involves some form of civic education, counseling, and mediation, among others. Family resolutions are fostered to prevent wrangles to property/land that would culminate into family disintegration. It is also a policy of the Directorate that all persons are equal before the law and as such rights of disadvantaged groups like widows and orphans are protected with zeal.

    e) Winding up of estates.

    Where the Administrator General is granted Letters of Administration, the administration of the estate should be concluded within a year from the date of the grant. After one year, except for exceptional circumstances where there are pending wrangles, we distribute properties amongst beneficiaries, execute transfers and file Final Accounts together with an affidavit in verification. We give 14 clear days’ notice to all interested persons to attend court for approval of the accounts. If the accounts are examined and passed, the estate is said to have been wound up in accordance with S.33 (2) of the Administration Cap 157 and the office is discharge of its duty as administrator of the estate.

     

    The Administrator General can also be discharged by renouncing Letters of Administration in favor of a person agreed upon by the beneficiaries of the estate.(S. 195 Succession Act cap 162). He will be required to file an account on the status of the estate at the time and to grant a certificate of No. objection to the agreed upon person(s).

    BID NOTICE: Construction of the JLOS House and Police HQ

    JLOS_Standard Invitation_Hp2

    The JLOS House Project is a three-in-one Justice, Law and Order Sector (JLOS) infrastructure development project aimed at strengthening good governance principles by enhancing the ability of JLOS institutions to coordinate and offer better services. The project is expected to contribute to enhanced transparency, accountability and ethics in a purpose built office park and civic centre.

    The JLOS House complex is intended to improve the productivity of the public service; facilitate the growth of the private sector through the provision of timely public services; reduce the costs of public administration through integration of services and sharing of common services such as ICT conference facilities and asset/ facilities management. Further, the one-stop centre will introduce modern concepts of office management and incorporate environmental concepts of green and intelligent technology in the design and construction of public buildings. The one-stop centre will free resources in rent and efficiency savings to build a functional justice system in Uganda.

     

    PROJECT SCOPE

    The project involves the design, procurement, construction, commissioning and maintenance of 74,000 sq. metres of rentable office space comprising of:–

    The JLOS Towers and High Court which shall be located on plot 98-102 Katalima Road in Naguru on 5 acres of land owned by the Justice Law and Order Sector (JLOS) through the Uganda Land Commission. JLOS Towers and High Court will accommodate the headquarters of JLOS institutions including the Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Ministry of Internal Affairs, Uganda Human Rights Commission, Uganda Prison Services, URSB, TAT, ULRC, JSC, DPP, JLOS secretariat. The facility will also provide for the Criminal, Anti-Corruption, International Crimes, Civil, Family and Land Divisions of the High Court. The towers shall be green and intelligent buildings which shall serve as a one-stop service centre for JLOS Services.

    The Police Headquarters to accommodate all the police directorates at plot 40-96 Katalima Road Naguru Kampala next to the JLOS house complex. The police headquarters shall be a green and intelligent building that will increase police productivity and improve quality of policing services. The Police Headquarters shall be constructed on 5.9 acres of land owned by Uganda Land Commission restricted to Uganda Police Force. The Project site is located in Kampala City 5.2 km East of the centre of Kampala City.

     

    PROJECT BACKGROUND

    The JLOS House project was conceived out of the need to provide a one-stop centre for JLOs institutions in recognition of the fact that the different JLOS institutions are scattered over dispersed locations in Kampala. Several of these locations are in parts of the City that are inaccessible, yet the mandates of the institutions are complementary and require close proximity for communication, cooperation and coordination. The institutions are also located in rented premises that are not designed for the provision of JLOS services and are inaccessible to the public.

    It is expected that the JLOS House Project will support the efforts to integrate the services provided by the different institutions to create a conducive working environment. The project will also enhance accessibility to JLOS services by the general public, especially the poor and marginalised and enhance the inter-linkages between the services.

    The huge cost of renting various premises for JLOS institutions further compounds the challenges that the Sector faces. The annual rental expense for JLOS institutional headquarters stands at USD 8.5 million. Despite this huge cost, there is still inadequate space for staff requirements and limited space for storage. There is also virtually no space to adequately handle clients. It is in light of these challenges that the Sector conceived and approved the JLOs House project in 2005.

    The overall goal of the project is to promote the rule of law through enhanced independence and public trust in JLOS institutions in line with the national vision of transforming Uganda from a peasant to a middle income status by 2040.

    The objective of the project is to provide office accommodation for the JLOS institutions as a one-stop service Centre in order to facilitate and improve service delivery and increase access to JLOS services. Specifically:

    a) To provide office accommodation (JLOS Towers) and a purpose built High Court through green and intelligent buildings as a one-stop service centre to facilitate and improve service delivery and increase access to JLOS services.

    b) To provide a green and intelligent building that will increase police productivity and improve quality of policing services (Police Headquarters).

    c) To provide for a purpose-built Judiciary headquarters and Appellate Courts that will promote access to judicial services

    The project is expected to enhance operational efficiency, promote coordination among JLOS agencies and reduce the high cost of rent and align JLOS infrastructure to business processes while deepening public access to JLOS services.

    The Justice, Law and Order Sector through the Public Private Partnership modality has identified an investor to build and operate the JLOS House project structures. Currently negotiations are ongoing between JLOS and the preferred bidder over the project scope and financing aspects. It is expected that these negotiations will be concluded in 2016.

    Overall, the JLOS House project has the potential to change the way Government conducts its business and relates with the public. The project stands out to introduce modern concepts of office management, open government, environmental conservation and rationalized use of time, space and other scarce resources, which if properly implemented shall reduce the cost of public administration in the Justice, Law and Order Sector.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_hoverbox image=”4000″ primary_title=”BID NOTICE: Construction of the JLOS House and Police HQ” hover_title=”BID NOTICE: Construction of the JLOS House and Police HQ” shape=”square” css_animation=”fadeInDown” el_id=”3″]The Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs has allocated funds to be used for the Procurement of the Contractor for the Construction of the JLOS House and Police Headquarters.  The Ministry invites sealed bids from eligible bidders for the provision of the above-mentioned works[/vc_hoverbox][/vc_column][/vc_row]
