Lawsuit Over Retail Theft Database That Wrongfully Labeled Job Seekers as Criminals Settles for $2.38 Million  A Pennsylvania federal judge has approved a settlement for $2.38 million in a class action lawsuit that alleged a retail theft database used for background checks wrongfully labeled job seekers as criminals even if they were not convicted of a crime, according to a report by TopClassActions.com. Lead plaintiffs Keesha Goode and Victoria Goodman alleged in the class action lawsuit that LexisNexis distributed damaging information compiled in the Esteem database to current and prospective employers without implementing proper safeguards, in violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. According to the class action lawsuit, Goode was denied employment with Family Dollar Stores Inc. based on information contained in the Esteem database. Goodman claims she was denied a promotion from a Rite Aid store and was later fired based on information in the Esteem database. LexisNexis Risk Solutions Inc. agreed to suspend its Esteem retail theft database under terms of the settlement. The company also agreed to set more stringent requirements to protect job seekers if the database is used for employment background checks in the future.

Retailers Facing New Class Action Attack for Routine (but Unlawful) Background Check Practices  Retail employers are under attack by a wave of recent class action lawsuits alleging violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), as well as related state counterpart laws – such as the California Consumer Credit Reporting Agencies Act and the California Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act. These lawsuits center on employers’ alleged failure to provide proper disclosures to, and obtain proper authorizations from, prospective employees before performing background checks. In most cases, the disclosure is allegedly deficient for including extraneous information, such as a release of liability or confirmation of “at will” employment within the same disclosure document or combining the FCRA disclosure in an employment application. While this is not a new area of law, the complaints are growing and the allegations expanding, and if the trend continues, we may see more and more plaintiffs’ attorneys attempting to exploit this area.

Sears agrees to $5M settlement in Loss Prevention Manager wages class action; Attorneys to seek $1.66M  Sears has agreed to a $5 million settlement in a class action alleging it misclassified workers in order to not pay them overtime pay. “The $5 million settlement resolves all current and potential litigation concerning the classification of the [loss prevention managers] position,” the settlement document filed July 16 states. “This settlement was reached after the parties participated in two mediations with Mark Rudy, a well-known and experienced wage and hour mediator, followed by five months of exhaustive post-mediation negotiations conducted by the parties.” The settlement is the product of years of hard fought and extensive litigation by both parties, according to the settlement. Class counsel will file an application for an award of attorneys’ fees and reimbursement of costs and expenses incurred in the prosecution of this lawsuit and the finalization of this global settlement, according to the suit. The fees will not exceed $1.66 million. As part of the settlement, the parties have agreed that $15,000 should be paid to the California Labor and Workforce Development Agency and $75,000 will be withheld from the net settlement amount for the defendants to use to resolve the claims of other current or former loss prevention managers who are covered by this settlement and who have pending or threatened federal or state overtime claims at the time this stipulation is filed and/or or the remedy any errors or disputes. Each of the named plaintiffs will receive a $5,000 incentive award. Following deductions, the settlement will pay the employees an average of approximately $21 per each week they worked during the time period covered by the unpaid overtime settlement, which is an average of $1,800 per worker. The lawsuit was filed in July 2011 by Robert O’Toole, who took action on behalf of himself and other current and former loss prevention managers at Sears and Kmart stores who allegedly were denied overtime compensation.

Saks Fifth Avenue sued by African-American patron allegedly followed by security personnel in New Orleans  A Baton Rouge doctor is suing Saks Fifth Avenue and two of the retailer’s employees for allegedly accusing her of shoplifting because she is of African-American descent. Dr. Japera Levine filed suit against Saks Fifth Avenue LLC, a Saks sales associate, and a Saks security guard in the Orleans Parish Civil District Court on June 27. Levine claims that on June 30, 2013 between noon and 2 p.m., she went shopping at Saks Fifth Avenue on Canal Street in New Orleans. Her motivation for patronizing the retailer was celebratory, having just finished a surgical procedure at her hospital of employment in Baton Rouge, the suit states. It also states that Levine had shopped at Saks’ locations in other cities several times before June 30. Levine reports that she expressed incredulity, after which the presence of a security employee was brought to her attention. According to the suit, the security personnel had been following her throughout the store. Levine allegedly requested to speak with the manager, to whom she articulated frustration with being treated as a thief after spending $3,000 at that Saks location. On July 3, 2013, the Saks store manager allegedly called Levine and did not apologize for her experience on June 30. The manager allegedly explained that it is Saks’ store policy to follow customers when they are shopping. The plaintiff asserts that she saw other customers walking with items from one department to another without obstruction. (Source louisianarecord.com)

Possible Protection 1 buyers: PE firm, telecom or cableco
Home security giant Protection 1 is up for sale for more than $1.5 billion, Reuters reported this week. Likely buyers could range from a top private equity firm to a telecom or cableco, an industry analyst told Security Systems News. GTCR, the private equity firm that bought Protection 1 in 2010 for $828 million, has asked Morgan Stanley to help in the sales effort, the news service reported Aug. 4. Romeoville, Ill.-based Protection 1 did not respond to SSN’s request for comment on the report, which Reuters ascribed to unidentified sources. Jeff Kessler, managing director of institutional research at Imperial Capital, a New York City full-service investment bank, said the news that Protection 1 was a surprise to him and praised Protection 1's CEO Tim Whall, CFO Dan Bresingham and CIO Don Young as “three of the leading executive luminaries in the industry right now,” and noted that their “top-notch management” has resulted in marked improvement in both the residential and commercial side of the business.  (Source securitysystemsnews.com)

Some online retailers seeing value in opening bricks-and-mortar shops
Some of the hippest online retailers around are pioneering an old concept: offline retailing. After years of squeezing traditional retailers, e-commerce companies that were once digital-only are seeing the value of hanging up shingles in malls and bustling shopping streets. “It's all about having the online retail world figure out, 'Maybe we can showcase our products better in store,'” said Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst for NPD Group. “We are going to use retail as a way to eliminate some of the challenges online has because you can't touch and feel and smell and taste.” (Source thegazette.com)

Report: Bitcoin Targeted in 22% of Financial Malware Attacks
Security firm Kaspersky Lab has found that bitcoin is the target in more than one fifth of all malware attacks aimed at victims’ money. According to Kaspersky’s latest threat report, entitled ‘IT Threat Evolution Q2 2014’, bitcoin mining malware accounted for 14% of attacks in the second quarter of 2014, while bitcoin wallet stealers accounted for 8%. Keyloggers, which can be used to compromise both bitcoin and banking services, also made the list, with 4% of all attacks attributed to various forms of key logging malware. Traditional banking malware still leads the way with 74%, but considering the size of the bitcoin economy it is clear that bitcoin users and operators face a significant likelihood of being subjected to an attack.

Menswear store owner - Sudbury shooting victim, fears reprisal from released shooter  The victim of a shooting incident in downtown Sudbury says he lives in fear that his attacker will be released and says a recent ruling makes that possibility seem closer than ever. In 2010, Alex Klem walked into Tony Monteleone's menswear store, and shot him in the abdomen. Klem was found not criminally responsible for that last year. The judge said he suffered from paranoia and delusional disorder. Klem has been in custody at the North Bay Psychiatric Hospital since the ruling. But recently, the Ontario Review Board granted Klem a transfer to a mental health facility in the town of Whitby in southern Ontario. Monteleone said he is disappointed by what he sees as a favorable ruling. And he's also afraid Klem will be released, and come after him. (Source cbc.ca)

The four-person team has been given funding to take on shoplifters, bike thieves and other acquisitive crimes in the city, and is concentrating on offenders recently released from prison, along with other known offenders. Inspector Charlotte Bloxham said the new team was not created following a rise in crime, but with the intention of trying a new method of dealing with volume crime. Insp Bloxham said: "We have had some good results in areas where they would perhaps not have done previously because they weren't in plain clothes." (Source yorkpress.co)

The Internet of Things Brings Far-Reaching Security Threats
With the exuberance to embed sensors in a galaxy of devices and bring them onto the network, the new "Internet of Things" will unwittingly create a virtually limitless set of new threat vectors. In a retail environment, for instance, the CIO's involvement in store operations might be limited to the cash registers, point-of-sale systems and back-office operations. In a world where mobile payments are a reality and items on the shelf are expected to interact with shoppers' devices, though, the tech team must take a more hands-on role. "If that's the case, then the people managing IT actually have to touch the merchandise in a way that the store manager never would have wanted before." (Source cio.com)

Asking for advice is a great thing and we all need it from time to time merely because as the old adage goes we're too close to the trees to see the forest. However, the key is who you ask for it and what are their agendas, because we all have them and even well-intentioned advice can be swayed by an individual's need or desire to accomplish their objectives. Advice is the easiest thing to give and the hardest thing to practice. But getting a second opinion is always good. You've just got to realize that we're all just humans and even the best advice givers and mentors are influenced by their own needs.
