Beware of misclassifying workers as independent contractors
By D. Albert Brannen
If your workforce includes contract employees, freelancers, casual workers or independent contractors by any other title, you should seriously analyze whether such workers should be recategorized as employees. The risks of not properly classifying workers can be substantial and include having to ante up back pay, liquidated damages, unpaid taxes, penalties, interest, accounting and attorneys' fees. In addition to these economic risks, other negative consequences can include interference with ongoing operations and harm to an employer's reputation.

Catastrophe bond price returns continue slow slide
Artemis
The price return of the secondary catastrophe bond market continues to slide slowly down from its recent peak now that supply and demand for outstanding catastrophe bond notes appears to have leveled off somewhat.

How vulnerable is your company to a cyber breach?
Corporate Counsel
The word "information" may sound simple and boring, but the owners of information have access to power, money, and immense competitive advantage. It's not surprising, then, that companies devote significant time, effort, and resources to protecting their proprietary and valuable information.
