All employers are required by law to display labor law posters-but how do business owners know that the posters they use are authentic and up to date? It’s a challenge facing millions of businesses, many of which have lost money to poster scam artists.
Here’s how the con works: A scam artist visits a business posing as a government agent, or mails an official-looking solicitation to a business. Business owners are led to believe-often wrongly-that the labor law posters they are displaying are not in compliance with current regulations. The business owner is then strong-armed into paying excessive fees for outdated or unnecessary posters.

Sadly, swimming pool injuries and drowning deaths occur at a very high rate. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that everyday there are at least 10 pool related injuries or deaths that occur. What is even more alarming is the fact that 20 percent of these incidents occur to children under the age of 14, and of that 20 percent, a majority of the events happen to children between the ages of one and four.
In most cases, a personal injury attorney would handle a case surrounding a pool injury or drowning death. However, some of these cases can become complicated and may be in the best interest of the injury victim or their family to consider using a personal injury attorney that is very familiar with, or only handles, pool injuries or drowning claims.

Thanks to the physical laws of electronics, circuit analysis is very procedural. This is the second entry in a tutorial in basic electronics. The first entry covered basic electronic concepts such as voltage, current, and power. This session will cover Ohm’s Law, and Kirchhoff’s Laws of voltage and current. These are the fundamental laws needed for circuit analysis and design.
Resistors and Ohm’s Law
Georg Simon Ohm was a German physicist that in 1826 experimentally determined most basic laws that relate to voltage and current for a resistor.
Ohm’s law basically states that the resistance of a component (commonly a resistor) is equal to the voltage dropped over the resistor divided by the current going through it.
According to the newly published survey, “Future of Legal Process Outsourcing (LPO), 87% of in-house counsel noted that it is more difficult to manage legal risks related to company data than compared to five years ago. Additionally, 69% of those surveyed say they have seen an increase in spending on managing legal risk and compliance over the last five years. The survey was conducted by UK legal journal Legal Business in partnership with Clutch Group in December 2013 and received responses from over 200 senior in-house lawyers in the UK, Asia, and the US.
The Legal Business survey also revealed that LPOs have a large role to play in helping companies tackle large data and help companies mitigate risk. Highlights of the survey include:
*80% of respondents say they expect to see the Legal Process Outsourcing industry expand and improve its services over the next five years.
*58% of respondents say that LPOs and law firms need to work together on compliance and risk matters.
*37% of in-house lawyers say that LPOs are better equipped than law firms to use advanced technology and to use data and risk analytics.
*In-house counsel are using LPOs primarily for investigations and due diligence exercises; general litigation support and eDiscovery are close seconds.
*The UK LPO market is less developed than the US: 38% of UK-based respondents say they have used LPOs for legal work, compared to 50% in the US.
*An increase in the level of civil litigation is seen as the biggest driver behind rising legal costs. Greater scrutiny from regulators is close behind.
