The LP Industry's #1 News Source - Informing, Educating and Instilling a Sense of Community

Facebook Twitter Linkedin

News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products

LP Job Market Tightens - Internet Postings Down 7.24% - Senior Level LP Jobs Down 25%  While our numbers certainly aren't a precise reflection of the industry given they represent only internet postings, they do reflect a trend. With a 7.24% decrease over last year in our daily internet postings it is a concern and probably is a pretty good indication of a tightening market. Especially given the large number of store closings in the apparel industry, as we reported earlier this week. Also given the fact that fewer senior level positions have become available this year is another concern as well. Having followed the senior level LP positions over the last 30 years we can attest to the fact that we've seen at least a 25% reduction in the number of openings that have been brought to the market. Our prediction is we won't see the late 3rd Quarter push to fill jobs for the upcoming holiday season, as more retailers keep the budgets tight in anticipation of a soft 4th Quarter. Not a promising outlook if you're on the job market. Just a thought - Gus Downing

2,137 Retail Robbery's in first six months of 2014
Once again this isn't a precise number and only represents the number of robberies that are reported to the various news agencies around North America. Given the financial issues the newspaper industry has been facing and the job losses in that industry, that's virtually eliminated the reporters covering the police beat, we're hard pressed to be able to truly provide a hard factual number. However with a few dedicated LP executives helping us we've been able to make some inroads on providing you with better information. Something we at the Daily are planning on working on over the next year.

HBO actor settles with Macy's, NYC in "shop-and-frisk" racial profiling law suit
Actor Rob Brown of HBO's "Treme" has settled a federal discrimination lawsuit against Macy's Inc and the city of New York, the retailer said on Thursday, resolving part of a "shop-and-frisk" controversy over racial profiling in the city. Brown sued the department store and the city in November, saying that after purchasing a $1,300 gold Movado watch for his mother as a graduation present last June, he was detained and handcuffed by three men he believed to be police officers. The controversy surrounding his arrest and those of other black shoppers with similar complaints last year sparked debate about racial stereotyping and prejudice.  Macy's said it would also be settling other lawsuits alleging racial profiling. At a hearing on Monday in Brown’s case, a lawyer for the company said there were two cases pending in state court and a third in federal court. Brown sued for false imprisonment, assault and battery, negligent hiring and civil rights violations and was seeking unspecified money damages. The state attorney general launched an investigation into security practices at Macy's and Barneys, another retailer where black shoppers lodged similar complaints. Neither Macy's nor the city would provide further information on Thursday as details had not been finalized. (Source reuters.com)

Greater L.A. Franchise Association Suing 7-Eleven Alleging Racial Discrimination, Invasion of Privacy and Illegal Surveillance retaliation against franchisees  Several 7-Eleven retailers are joining with an area franchise association to fight 7-Eleven Inc. over claims of racial discrimination. However, 7-Eleven denies the claims, standing by its record of diversity. According to Courthouse News Service, last week FOAGLA Inc., a franchise owners association, and five 7-Eleven operators filed a federal lawsuit against 7-Eleven Inc., alleging racial discrimination, invasion of privacy and illegal surveillance retaliation against franchisees, and misclassification of employment relationship with franchisees. "The allegations made in this complaint are false. 7-Eleven is proud of its very diverse, independent franchisee population," the company wrote in an email to CSNews Online. "In fact, USA Today named 7-Eleven one of the Top 50 Franchises for Minorities in 2013, and has received recognition as one of the top franchisee opportunities by Professional Woman's Magazine, Hispanic Network Magazine and BLACK EOE Journal." 7-Eleven is determined to protect our guests, employees and other franchisees by ending the relationship with franchisees that violate the law or the franchise agreement, where appropriate. "The company is confident in the thorough and lawful system that it has in place to accomplish this," the retailer stated. The franchisees also allege the company employs illegal surveillance to spy on franchisees and has hired unlicensed private investigators to follow franchisee activities outside of the store, according to Courthouse News Service. Making sure that stores are safe for guests and employees is a top priority for 7-Eleven. From store-personnel training programs to responsible cash control and the legal installation of surveillance cameras, crime deterrence is foremost in our minds," the company said. "7-Eleven has invested over $40 million to upgrade the security of every 7-Eleven store in the United States so we can improve the safety of our guests, store employees, franchisees and aid law enforcement officials in their pursuit of wrongdoers. 7-Eleven has a policy of sharing security surveillance camera footage with law enforcement. That cooperation has led to the capture and successful prosecution of criminals." -However, 7-Eleven told CSNews Online this claim is false and that safety is top of mind. (Source csnews.com)

Justice Department Indicts FedEx in a Drug-Shipping Inquiry - Faces Potential $1.6 Billion Fine if Found Guilty  The case focuses on whether FedEx had appropriate safeguards to prevent online pharmacies from shipping drugs without prescriptions. The No. 1 shipper, UPS, paid $40 million last year as part of a settlement to avoid charges in the same investigation. The FedEx indictment was announced in California by the Justice Department. In a 15-count indictment filed in San Francisco, federal prosecutors say that beginning in 2004 the company repeatedly ignored warnings from the government it was breaking the law by shipping drugs ordered from online pharmacies that dispensed them to anyone who filled out an online questionnaire. Among the charges included in the indictment are conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, conspiracy to distribute misbranded drugs, distribution of controlled substances and misbranding drugs. Prosecutors say FedEx made at least $820 million shipping the drugs. If found guilty, the company faces a potential maximum fine of twice that. FedEx has been summoned to appear in court July 29 in San Francisco. The indictment says FedEx went out of its way to keep doing business with online pharmacies and collect payments from them, despite efforts by the DEA and the Food and Drug Administration to shut them down.

NYC Jury Awards Pathmark Shoplifter $500K for Broken Ankle - Excessive Force
A Brooklyn jury awarded more than $500,000 to a man who sued the city for a broken ankle he suffered during an arrest for shoplifting at a Queens Pathmark store in 2011. He filed suit after pleading guilty to the shoplifting. In 2005 he sued the NYPD for false arrest after a drug sales charge was dropped and received a $15,000 settlement. Last month the city settled with him for $20,000 after another false arrest. In the shoplift case, Jarman claimed that 5-foot-5 Sgt. Samuel Morales approached him inside Pathmark after a store clerk reported a theft. The suit said the cop was intimidated by the 6'2" shoplifter. The police officer “appeared to be afraid of Plaintiff because of his size” before slapping on handcuffs but quickly turned nasty once he was safely shackled, said the suit. Jarman told Morales to loosen the cuffs, but the cop yanked on them instead and caused the towering unemployed chef to tumble over, papers state. The suit claimed that Jarman couldn’t steady himself because Morales had his boot purposefully holding his foot in place and tripped him. The shoplifter spent 9 days in the hospital. It took jurors just a few hours to deliver Wednesday’s shocking windfall verdict. (Source abcnews.com)

The letter criticized the board’s "stealthily and abruptly ousting American Apparel's long-standing CEO and largest shareholder knowing that their actions will cause a near-imminent default under important contractual obligations of the company and cause it to default on nearly $10 million in loans. Now Charney will remain as a strategic consultant with the company until an investigation into his alleged misconduct is concluded. (Source chainstoreage.com)

Consumer confidence is shifting from bricks-and-mortar to online retailers - What a role reversal  New research shows three-quarters of consumers are less likely to shop with a company that allowed their personal data to be stolen. Consumers now view online transaction as having less risk than in-person transactions at bricks-and-mortar retailers. “All through the 1990s and most of the 2000s online shopping was seen as comparatively risky, from a data security perspective,” he says. “But that's no longer the case. Online security measures have improved tremendously, and consumers are much more savvy when shopping online than they used to be. They know what to look for to shop safely online. Add to that the fact that the hackers have come up with increasingly clever ways to steal data from brick-and-mortar shops and all the high-profile success they've had doing so, and the tables are now turned.” “All through the 1990s and most of the 2000s online shopping was seen as comparatively risky, from a data security perspective,” says Craig Borowski of Software Advice. “But that's no longer the case."

Target Corp. should cut its losses and exit Canada — soon, says Credit Suisse
Target Corp. needs to make a decision about whether it wants to continue operating in Canada soon. Once a permanent CEO takes the helm, they will need to rapidly decide whether an attempt to turn around Canada is worth diverting time and capital away from the U.S. business,” analyst Michael Exstein told clients. We think it may be more prudent for Target to cut its losses and devote 100% of its resources on the U.S. — which comprises over 97% of the company’s current sales.” By the end of fiscal 2014, Mr. Exstein noted Target will likely have spent about US$6-billion in capex and after-tax losses in Canada. But more spending may be coming if the company wants to turn things around, as the analyst thinks it will be a major effort that takes at least several years to accomplish.

Canadian Women's clothing retailers face tough year, more bankruptcies: analysts  Canadian women's clothing retailers are bracing for a difficult year as the entry of more international brands into the marketplace raises the possibility that once steadfast domestic fashion companies could be headed for financial trouble. A weak spring has forced retailers to scramble in a losing effort to salvage the year by selling off inventory at deep discounts. "They're basically panicking because they're coming into the summer season with excess inventory...so what they've engaged in is cut-throat price competition in hopes of trying to clear the merchandise out of their stores." Even some foreign retailers were hurt, though men's fashion retailers fared better. Harris predicted that at least three or four retailers up to the size of Jacob will close after the Christmas rush.

Canada's retailers warned by developer - Watch out for mystery shopper / secret shopper scams  First Capital Realty has become aware that fake consumer research programs are being used to defraud unsuspecting victims. Under these scams, numerous consumers across Canada are receiving forged cheques and documentation and are being asked to pose as mystery shoppers at select retail locations. The forged cheques and documentation may in some cases be received after the recipient has applied or been contacted for employment as a mystery shopper. Victims of the scam are typically defrauded when they send funds to their "employer" as part of a mystery shopping assignment and, subsequently, the payment issued to the victim is denied when the forged cheque bounces after being deposited.

IBC's cargo theft reporting program pays dividends: Database helps identify owners of $1.4M in recovered cargo  After a recent police raid, Insurance Bureau of Canada's (IBC's) cargo theft reporting program helped police to identify the owners of approximately $1.4 million in stolen property – the result of 15 separate cargo load thefts over the past several months. The IBC cargo theft reporting database – the heart of the reporting program – facilitated communication between insurance companies and law enforcement regarding the return of the goods. IBC recently expanded its cargo theft reporting program nationwide. The program, administered in conjunction with the Canadian Trucking Alliance and supported by law enforcement, is aimed at fighting the rapidly escalating crime that is costing Canadians up to $5 billion a year and is a significant problem in transportation hubs in southern Ontario, Vancouver and Montreal.

Jacob - fashion chain seeks extension to avert closing down 92 stores
Marketing and communications director Cristelle Basmaji, daughter of founder Joey Basmaji, said the company is going to court Friday to seek an extension of creditor protection, which would give it more time to try to relaunch. Jacob announced on May 6 that it would close its 92 stores within several weeks, after liquidating inventory. Now, more than two months later, most stores remain open as Continental Capital Investments stepped in with a “debtor-in-possession” loan at the time of the initial filing. The deal gave the company an $8-million line of credit at an annual interest rate of 15 per cent. The chain, founded in 1977, previously sought creditor protection at the end of 2010, closing 50 stores, collapsing banners and restructuring. (Source montrealgazette.com)

Ontario Workers Win New Protections as Wage Theft and Minimum Wage Bills Re-introduced  The Ontario government has responded to the growing crisis of low-wage precarious work and demands of workers to step up protection by introducing new legislation today. The Liberals have re-tabled their bill to index the minimum wage to inflation and have re-introduced legislation that brings some protections against wage theft. Under the proposed wage theft legislation both temp agencies and client companies would be liable for unpaid wages and overtime and it would be harder for companies to contract out unsafe work to temp agencies. In addition, workers will have up to two years to file employment standards claims, with no monetary limit. (Source digitaljournal.com)

6 Tips for Using Big Data to Hunt Cyberthreats
You need to be smart about harnessing big data to defend against today's security threats, data breaches, and attacks. While companies look to take advantage of all this data to improve operations, increase sales, and lower costs, many are discovering that it can also be used for security by offering a broader view of risk and vulnerabilities. Big data offers the ability to analyze massive numbers of potential security events and make connections between them to create a prioritized list of threats. With big data, disparate data can be connected, which allows cyber security professionals to take a proactive approach that prevents attacks. (Source darkreading.com)

FBI joins investigation into 4 Pharmacy Robberies in Shorewood, WI; store hit 4 times since January  FBI agents are calling it a “prescription for a life behind bars.” A Shorewood drug store is robbed four times since January. Now, a reward is being offered for a crook with a penchant for pain killers. FBI agent Robert Botsch says it’s believed one man is responsible for a string of armed robberies at Hayek’s Pharmacy on Downer Ave. Since January, he’s apparently hit the store four times. Botsch says the frequency and violence of each robbery has prompted the feds to get involved. “In one of the robberies, a round was discharged towards an employee inside the store. In another, the employees were placed out on the ground and threatened to be shot,” said Botsch. The FBI is now offering a $5,000 reward in the case. Neighbors hope that will put an end to the suspect’s repetitive ways. He normally shows up with his face covered, flashing a black revolver. (Source fox6now.com)

SD&I Fast50 ranks Cam Connections #8 in prestigious list
of security dealers and integrators

Every year, Security Dealer & Integrator Magazine honors the 50 fastest-growing security dealers and integrators in North America. This year, Cam Connections Inc. made the Top 10 in SD&I's third-annual Fast50 - tying for 8th place on the prestigious industry list.
“We’ve invested a lot of time and energy into process improvement since 2011 — we analyzed our pain points, and then focused on minimizing or eliminating those shortcomings,” says Chris Lesnewski, CEO of Cam Connections. “Some key improvements as a result are much better hiring practices, improved communication, highly specialized roles/training, and employee retention and satisfaction. Education and retail have been the growth markets for us. There is still much fear over random acts of violence and concern for public safety, and understandably so.”

With nearly 60 employees, Cam Connections provides custom-tailored security and loss prevention programs for hundreds of America's leading businesses and government agencies. Their experienced staff - comprised of some of the country's best trained security, loss prevention and technology specialists - forms the foundation of CCI's elite security team: professionals whose focus is on complete client satisfaction.

The top 10 Fast50 companies run the gamut from large to small businesses in terms of employees; however all of them balanced gross revenues and overall percentage growth over a three-year period to end up on top of the rankings. See the rest of the SD&I Fast50 list here.

Success cannot happen without conflict. Because success always challenges the status quo, regardless, and mandates change. And in order for change to be successful you need commitment - you need everyone to buy in totally.

One can disagree and still commit but for those who don't engage - commitment is a mere phrase not reinforced by actions.
