How to complain about discriminatory job ad?

How to complain about discriminatory job ad?

| 17/04/2019

A job ad was published in the print news asking specifically for a man (see photo below). The Cayman Labour Law states that discrimination based on sex is illegal yet this company makes being male the first requirement to fill the position. Clearly this is wrong and illegal. But what agency polices this kind of […]

How do you request a new bus stop?

How do you request a new bus stop?

| 15/04/2019

I pass buses everyday who pull over at the yellow crossing on West Bay Road outside the medical school residence hall. Students stand at the crossing waiting for the bus, which is dangerous as cars don’t know if students are crossing or not and it’s an accident waiting to happen. The buses also block the […]

Health City is going to build a cancer centre. Is it going to have a specially designed independent sewage treatment plant that includes disinfection and residue removal zones? Where will final effluent be disposed? Wastewater from hospitals can contain traces of anything from viruses and multi-resistant bacteria to medical contrast agents and chemicals for cancer […]

What dive sites are affected by enhanced marine areas?

| 08/04/2019

It’s great that the Cayman government and the Department of the Environment plan to significantly expand and enforce the protected marine areas and increase the no-fishing and no-diving zones. But I am finding it difficult to read and interpret the maps released by the DoE with the overlapping protected zones. Can you provide a list […]

I have been reading how there are going to be many opportunities for the public to see Prince Charles and Camilla during the royal visit this week, and we are being encouraged to attend events and greet them.

Shocked by rises in rent

| 01/03/2019

Is there any government body we can appeal to about these crazy rent increases?  I just found out my rent is going up another $200 from the $300 it went up last year! Other people I know have had their rent go up by $700. This is crazy! How is anyone expected to live with […]

Cayman Airways needs TSA pre-check

| 26/02/2019

Why doesn’t Cayman Airways participate in the US TSA pre-check programme for expedited security clearance? If I am travelling from one of the cities with competing flights to Cayman Airways (Miami, Chicago, New York) to Grand Cayman and have a choice of expedited security clearance (American, United, etc) vs the slow lanes (Cayman Airways), I […]

Cell-phone service disrupted at KAABOO

| 25/02/2019

Any idea what the issue was with Flow at KAABOO over the weekend? I couldn’t call, text or email with my service. Everyone I know with Flow had the same issue. We ended up leaving early as we were unable to contact our sitter and my wife was concerned. I presume there were no shenanigans […]

Separated recycled items mixed during collection

| 14/02/2019

I was dropping off some recycling at Kirk Market when I saw that all recycling containers are dumped into the same truck. Why do we need to sort recycling if that’s the case? Couldn’t we have one big recycling bin instead?

Could you please convey a request to charities, etc, organising sports or other events with giveaways such as t-shirts and plastic bottles to please consider giving away those little flashing lights you can attach to your t-shirt or shoes or bag? I see a LOT of people exercising on the roadside early mornings (well done!) […]
