Retention Bonuses and the infamous non-compete agreement - Corporate America is clamping down and the legal system is supporting them  Twenty years ago or so, attorneys would tell you non-compete agreements were only as good as the paper they were written on, but things have changed in this world of technology, increased competition, the recession, and even the online e-commerce world has played a part. The judicial system and retailers have done an about-face on this issue and the pendulum has shifted in support of non-competes. From corporate secrets, marketing plans and strategies, organizational structures, recruiting of former executives, and a host of other issues have now been put under the spot-light and judges are supporting corporate America's attempts to keep their information and their corporate executives from being stolen or recruited by competitors by an executive who just left their ranks and had signed a non-compete. With technology making it easier to gather critical data, both corporate America and the legal system is responding and holding executives accountable to these agreements. There's been a number of senior executives who've been stopped from changing retailers over the last 5 years especially, with a few actually in the Loss Prevention ranks. One of the most common non-competes now in our industry, are those contained in retention bonus agreements. Where they'll actually list specific "same channel" retailers one can't go to work for while the agreement is in force and once the executive has executed it and received the bonus itself. Along with it includes the stock grants or options which can be forfeited.

More firms requiring non-compete agreements
There are no hard figures on the number of companies requiring workers to sign the agreements, but experts say they are becoming more common not only for executives and salespeople, but for a range of jobs in industries like tech and medicine, as well as service-oriented fields. Workers who breach the contracts could face a legal injunction stopping them from working at the company that wants to hire them, and some workers could be sued for damages if they bring over clients or share a company’s sensitive information. With technology making it easier for people to share sensitive information, some companies are also using the covenants as an additional way to protect trade secrets. Editors note: Here's a great article to read about the topic and gives some advice on how to handle them and what to look for. (Source

New York Attorney General to review Payroll prepaid cards; 20 employers, including McDonalds, Walgreens, Home Depot and Walmart asked for information. Prepaid debit cards issued instead of traditional paychecks has been around for several years, authorities now believe that banks are generating more revenue from workers by charging certain fees on these prepaid cards.

Video of Deadly Hostage Standoff in Walmart Released  Police have released surveillance video from an Oklahoma Walmart of a man who allegedly took a 2-year-old girl from a mother’s shopping cart and held a knife to the child’s throat. Surveillance cameras at the Midwest City, Okla., Walmart were rolling June 17 when police shot and killed the suspect, Sammie Wallace, in the head at point-blank range and safely returned the toddler to her mother. In the dramatic video, Wallace, 37, takes the toddler hostage while her mother, Alicia Keating, had her back to the shopping cart. Keating began to scream and pleaded with the suspect to return her daughter. Law enforcement quickly moved in and evacuated the store. Police began more than 30 minutes of negotiations with Wallace and, at one point, even offered him a chair. Police say Wallace was uncooperative and the situation quickly deteriorated, with the suspect making odd demands. The tipping point came when Wallace started an ominous 60-second countdown with the knife still close to the toddler’s neck. With the situation growing intense, an officer distracted Wallace as Capt. David Huff moved in and fired a single deadly shot at his head. (Source

The Seven Laws of Employee Theft Investigations

Employee theft accounts for nearly fifty percent of all losses. Resolution of internal issues is a cornerstone to loss reduction. Although in “general” it’s as simple as removing the problem – in practice the 7 Laws ensure that:

● Quality investigations are executed
● Potential liabilities are minimized
● Defendable argument for our actions and decisions are created

Each company's individual culture, practices, and operating policies will have an impact on the investigation process. The specific dictates of the investigation process are unique but the broad practices should be ensured. Investigations are one of the most critical elements to loss control, but they are also one of the high liability actions we will take.

Managing those communications is no easy task and ensuring that the information is handled correctly and expediently can be delicate.
