Supreme Court Split in Landmark Amazon Security-Check Case - Justices express doubts on whether retailers should pay employees for after-shift security checks  Workers who fill customer orders for Internet retailer Amazon might be out of luck in their quest to be paid for time they spend going through security checkpoints each day. Several Supreme Court justices expressed doubts Wednesday during arguments over whether federal law entitles workers to compensation for routine security measures to prevent employee theft. The case is being watched closely by business groups concerned that employers could be liable for billions of dollars in retroactive pay for security check procedures that have become routine in retail and other industries. The dispute involves two former workers at a Nevada warehouse who say their employer, Integrity Staffing Solutions, Inc., made them to wait up to 25 minutes in security lines at the end of every shift. Integrity provides staffers for Amazon warehouses. The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in San Francisco, allowed the Las Vegas case to proceed, saying the screenings were for Amazon's benefit and were a necessary part of the workers' jobs. That was enough, the appeals court said, to make the screenings "integral and indispensable." Justice Elena Kagan was skeptical, at least in the instance of an Amazon warehouse. "I mean, what makes it Amazon?" she asked. "It's a system of inventory control that betters everybody else in the business. And what's really important to Amazon is that it knows where every toothbrush in the warehouse is." Justice Antonin Scalia disagreed. "Getting yourself inspected as you leave the place of business is not part of the job," he said. "You wouldn't pay anybody just to come in and go through security," added Justice Samuel Alito. Some justices were troubled by how long the screenings were said to take. "Is it irrelevant," Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg asked, "that we're told here that because there are not enough security checkers and because all the shifts get out at the same time, what could be a five-minute process turns out to be 25 minutes?" Mr. Clement said that the supposed 25-minute waits were untested assertions in the workers' lawsuit. A 1947 Labor Department opinion letter was cited, which makes no distinction between searches for general security and those to prevent theft, finding neither requires pay. Justice Stephen Breyer said if he was in the workers' situation, he'd look to the Labor Department. "They are the ones who are in charge of this," Breyer said. "And they are saying you lose."

AT&T to pay $105M for deceptive 'cramming' practices - placed unauthorized charges on customers' phone bills  AT&T will pay $105 million to federal and state authorities to settle charges that the carrier placed unauthorized charges for third-party services on customers' mobile phone bills, the Federal Trade Commission has announced. Over about five years beginning in 2009, the carrier billed customers for hundreds of millions of dollars in subscriptions and premium text-messaging services, many of which were not authorized by consumers in a practice called "cramming," said FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez. The nation's second-largest wireless carrier will pay the FTC $80 million to provide refunds to consumers. AT&T will pay $20 million in penalties to states and a $5 million penalty to the Federal Communications Commission. In the alleged cramming scheme, AT&T is accused of placing unauthorized charges on millions of consumers' phone bills. The charges, which were typically $9.99 per month, were for third-party services, like ringtones, horoscopes, celebrity gossip or other "fun fact" alerts, FTC chairwoman Edith Ramirez said in a Wednesday press conference. She added that charges, listed as "AT&T monthly subscriptions" on consumer bills, often led customers to believe that the charges originated from the service provider, and not third-parties.

China angered after FBI head says Chinese hacking costs billions
China accused the United States on Thursday of faking facts, after the head of the FBI said that Chinese hacking likely cost the U.S. economy billions of dollars every year. Charges over hacking and internet spying have increased tension between the two countries. In May, the United States charged five Chinese military officers with hacking into U.S. companies, prompting China to suspend a Sino-U.S. working group on cyber issues. China has denied wrongdoing. Speaking on CBS' 60 Minutes program on Sunday, FBI Director James Comey said Chinese hackers were targeting big U.S. companies, and that some of them probably did not even know they had been hacked.

Dutch Hackers Hijack Retailers' Showroom PCs for Cryptocurrency Mining
Dutch hackers have started hijacking laptops showcased in retail stores and using them for cryptocurrency mining, according to a report. The stores involved have admitted that an undisclosed number of display samples were affected by malware and said they would take steps to eliminate the practice. Dutch tech publication Computerworld reported the problem on 7th October after a computer science student revealed that laptops in the Media Markt chain of shops have been exposed to mining malware for some months. Computerworld found that a total of 105 laptops were part of a botnet and that an estimated $633 had been generated in mining revenue over that time. (Source coindesk.com)

TycoIS execs outline small-business plan
TycoIS plans to start its incursion into small business by securing a foothold in five key markets, and its go-to-market strategy can be summed up in two words: Go local. Although TycoIS is the largest national commercial security company, the way to win small business, according to Tyco IS President Mark VanDover, "is through small operations in regional markets. It's all about the people and it's all about relationships." That's why Tyco small business employees are involved in local Chambers of Commerce and other community organizations, VanDover said. "Being local is a big key to success." When Tyco and ADT split in 2011, the agreement stipulated that Tyco could not serve businesses of less than 7,500 square feet and that ADT could not serve businesses greater than 7,500 square feet in size. That non-compete expired on Sept. 29. Tyco's five target markets are: Dallas, Chicago, two locations in Southern California and South Florida. (Source securitysystemsnews.com)

Sears Vendor Said to Halt Shipments as Insurers Back Away  Three of the biggest insurance firms for Sears Holdings Corp.'s suppliers are seeking to reduce coverage, prompting at least one medium-sized vendor to halt shipments to the department-store chain, people with knowledge of the matter said. Euler Hermes Group, one of the top providers of credit insurance to vendors, has been sending out cancellation notices, according to the people, who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public. Coface SA has indicated that it intends to do the same, two of the people said. Atradius Credit Insurance, another of the insurers, said it’s scaling back coverage, though the firm hasn’t yet pulled policies. The situation has spurred one supplier to withhold products from Sears after a recommendation from its credit department, according to an e-mail obtained by Bloomberg News. The vendor, a closely held company, asked not to be named. (Source bloomberg.com)

JC Penney Says Sept. Sales Softer Than Expected
Shares of J.C. Penney Co. fell nearly 11 percent after the department store operator warned that its sales last month were weaker than expected and it cut its outlook for a key sales measure for the current quarter. The warning overshadowed the company's unveiling of a strategy at its analysts' meeting Wednesday that the retailer said would boost sales by $2.55 billion over next three years. It would do so by improving the productivity of its stores' home department, expanding e-commerce and sprucing up key areas like jewelry, shoes and handbags. Penney sees the opportunity for an additional $1 billion in sales from continued market-share growth. That would bring the chain's annual revenue to $14.5 billion by fiscal 2017. That's still well below the $17.3 billion it generated before sales went into a freefall under its former CEO, Ron Johnson. (Source abcnews.com)

Popular online-only retailers continue expansion into physical storefronts
With average in-store purchases exceeding online sales by two and three times, popular online-only retailers, including Birchbox, Piperlime, Bonobos and Blank Label are continuing their expansion into physical storefronts, further accelerating the trend of online retail concepts expanding their omnichannel sales strategy to include physical locations. While the allure and attraction of opening physical store locations is appealing, there are fundamental differences between operating an online-only storefront and a physical store environment. The success of moving into an omnichannel offering hinges on how a brand prepares for and manages a collection of critical factors during the process. The days of retailers executing more than 50 new store rollout programs are largely behind us. In today’s retail environment, even national brands are viewing their stores more as showrooms to support and drive online sales; and this is even more significant for digital retail concepts. Given this, total store count for an entire new store rollout program may only be one per targeted major metropolitan area, and include only five to 10 stores total in strategic cities throughout the country.
