7-Eleven undercover operation shows Long Island 5 store franchisee underreporting sales and pocketing excess cash- not part of last weeks illegal immigrant group  7-Eleven filed a lawsuit against a franchisee of five Long Island stores last week, accusing him of siphoning hundreds of thousands of dollars for at least four years, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal. Filed in a Brooklyn federal court, the lawsuit seeks $1 million in damages and alleges that Tariq Khan, along with his wife, son and others, diverted cash to buy merchandise inventory from suppliers and never reported the invoices to 7-Eleven. A routine review in 2010 first turned up evidence of possible wrongdoing, according to 7-Eleven. The Dallas-based company then launched an undercover operation. In some of the subsequent 246 secret buys, Khan's employees bypassed the register, never reporting the received cash. In others, they misidentified the product as a less-expensive item when entering it into the cash register to underreport the sale, according to the WSJ. Although 7-Eleven ended its franchise agreement with Khan, the company stated that the defendants "have declined to voluntarily vacate the stores." Khan was not one of the nine store owners and managers charged with harboring and hiring illegal immigrants on June 17. (Source

10% of Macy's total replenishment inventory to carry RFID tags by August with nearly 50% of vendors committed to delivering RFID-tagged products in the future  Macy’s is accelerating its omni-channel retail strategy by rapidly deploying RFID technology. The progressive retailer plans to extend its store-based fulfillment capability to 500 stores this year, powered by the inventory accuracy provided by item level RFID. During an investor and analyst meeting last week, chief omni-channel officer Robert Harrison said that RFID will allow Macy’s to conduct monthly inventory cycle counts. Harrison said that RFID and omni-channel represent “a huge sales driver” for Macy’s. We see RFID as a very big part of our future, not just on how we run our business, but certainly from an omni-channel perspective as well.” (Source

New survey shows fashion and retail workers are continuing to wait for the payback from the Great Recession 
They are increasingly dissatisfied with their jobs, less happy with the balance between their work and the rest of their lives and more likely to be looking for alternative employment. It's a very disruptive time in the industry, and with consolidation and the shift towards e-commerce, workers see fewer opportunities. Retail and fashion companies really need to get a hold of talent management. (Source

Background-check industry under scrutiny as profits soar 
Hiring a criminal? Employers want to know. But bad info leads to lawsuits, as Sterling Infosystems can attest. Sterling is one of the largest players in the criminal-background-check business. Its employees sift reams of court records, on behalf of clients ranging from Wal-Mart to Walt Disney, to suss out which job applicants or employees have a record of violent crime, drug dealing or other felonious behavior. Sterling has morphed into a global giant—with more than 2,200 employees who conduct 16 million searches annually for thousands of clients—and it's still growing. "We keep the workplace safe," said Founder and Chief Executive Billy Greenblatt, who also predicts Sterling will top $1 billion in revenue in five to seven years by doing more of what it does and by expanding to serve nonprofits as well.

Can the I.T. staff be trusted?  
As the N.S.A., some companies and the city of San Francisco have learned, information technology administrators, who are vital to keeping the system running and often have access to everything, are in the perfect position if they want to leak sensitive information or blackmail higher-level officials. From government agencies to corporate America, there is a renewed emphasis on thwarting the rogue I.T. employee. Using the "two-man rule." (Source

Cyberattacks on the rise as credit, debit card numbers become commodities - and your smaller vendors may be the way in the backdoor to your critical data  Every time we swipe a piece of plastic at a gas station, grocery store or anywhere else, we're vulnerable to virtual pickpockets. Increasingly, credit and debit card numbers have become commodities sold by cyberthieves who harvest them from banks, businesses, restaurants and retailers. Last year, targeted attacks on businesses jumped 42 percent, according to security software firm Symantec. Attacks spiked 31 percent among companies with fewer than 250 employees. It's part of a shift from mass attacks by computer viruses, worms and other cyberthreats to more pinpointed, targeted infiltrations, say online security experts. The attackers, often located overseas, "find this method more effective because it allows them to fly under the radar and avoid drawing widespread attention to their malware," Brian Burch, vice president of consumer and small business marketing at Symantec, said in an email. Small businesses are frequently targeted because they often lack adequate security practices, said Burch. Additionally, because small firms often partner with bigger organizations, cybercriminals "sometimes use them to gain access to a larger company." (Source

Pekin, IL., City Council to consider today to make retail theft under $150 a city ordinance violation and not a state-law violation  The proposed ordinance would change retail thefts of less than $150 from the traditional state-law violation to a city ordinance violation and, as such, would mean that the city gets any fine associated with it. Retail theft cases are heard at the Tazewell County Courthouse every two weeks, said Pekin City Manager Joe Wuellner. The perpetrator would have the option to pay the fine for retail theft over the counter at the Pekin Municipal Building, 111 S. Capitol, St., Pekin, rather than go to court. (Source

South Florida man accused of shoplifting more than $2 million in toys and was addicted to Toys R Us and Thanked CVS for funding his worldwide travels Tamarac man reportedly boasted he'd stolen enough 'to fill an entire Toys R Us' The investigation began when nearly $900 of Lego sets vanished midday from the Toys R Us store in Boynton Beach. Before it was over, authorities would be tailing the alleged mastermind believed to have stolen more than $2 million of toys from Toys R Us stores from Maine to California. The suspect: a 47-year-old, globe-trotting Tamarac man who lives with his mother and his nine cats — what he calls his "cat family." Broward sheriff's detectives say he accomplished his personal goal of stealing in all 50 states. His name is Ignatius "Michael" Pollara, and he's suspected of being one of South Florida's most prolific shoplifters. His criminal case is one that leaves even veteran law enforcement officers shaking their heads in disbelief. In a span of about 200 days, reward cards linked to him were handed to cashiers at 139 Toys R Us stores in 27 states, according to court records. There was one two-week stretch when the cards were used up the East Coast from Palm Beach Gardens to Bangor, Maine, and then back down to Virginia — 23 stores in 11 states. A day before his August arrest, Broward sheriff's detectives watched him and an admitted accomplice visit 21 stores in central Florida in less than 24 hours, according to court records. They said they found the bounty from that spree when they searched Pollara's cluttered home strewn with boxes and bags. He's spent the last 10 months in jail awaiting trial and writing letters to the judge claiming all sorts of things.  (Source

3 Types of Employees Who Always Resist Change  People can be excited for change, and gun-ho for the idea of new innovative ways to do business, but when it comes down to it, and change looks them dead in the eyes, they become cautious, and skeptical.

Having a strategy or a plan about everything you do is important if you expect to win long term. Daily victories are nothing without a long-term plan. They fade quickly and leave the audience expecting more, which only a plan and strategy will satisfy. So after your next victory, ask yourself what am I going to do next?
