    John was the new ranch manager at Santos Farms. He always liked to get to know the guys who worked for him, and he found that the best way to meet new employees was to personally hand them their paycheck.

    "How could you?!" - not an uncommon thing for me to hear among other professionals in the business of fighting fraud when I tell them I work criminal defense cases. Admittedly, I struggled with the same issue the first time I was called by a defense attorney back in 2008. His client had been accused by a publicly traded company of stealing more than $5M in a sophisticated cash receipt theft scheme.

    1/8/2018 · Accounting
    A married couple, who owned a business in a small town, called me to investigate some curious items found on their company's bank statements. There was a DISH Network bill being paid through their account, but they didn't have DISH Network as their cable TV provider. When they called the company to ask whose account it was, they were given the name of their bookkeeper. They dug a little deeper into the bank statements and noticed that each month there was a Verizon Wireless bill being paid by them, even though they both used AT&T. Finally, they confronted their beloved bookkeeper, Sienna. A woman in her mid-twenties, Sienna had worked for them since graduating high school, eventually working her way up in the Company to managing the office. Sienna reacted the same way most fraudsters do when they are initially caught, she lied and said that she didn't know anything about it. When pushed, she explained that it was an accident and apologized for the oversight.

    Employers generally realize that the initial premium they pay for Workers Compensation insurance isn't the final premium for that coverage-Workers Comp is normally subject to an audit after the policy ends, to adjust premium charges based on actual payroll amounts. When the policy starts, after all, payroll amounts can only be estimated for the coming year. So it's routine for employers of any size to undergo a Workers Compensation premium audit, and to receive an audit statement that often seeks some additional premium.

    8/20/2015 · Insurance
    A growing trend for many businesses has been for their customers and prospects to use their experience modification factor as a safety benchmark, requiring a modifier of 1.00 or 1.05 for those bidding on projects. A higher modifier can disqualify a firm from bidding on many projects, particularly governmental projects.

    7/10/2015 · Insurance
    Recently, a former Director of the Illinois Department of Insurance wrote an Op-Ed piece, decrying recently proposed legislation that would require insurers to file changes in Workers Compensation insurance rates with regulators before using those rates with insurers. The proposed legislation would also allow the Department of Insurance to disapprove rates if it was determined they were excessive.

    An easy to understand guide, written for a general business audience, that explains in detail how Workers Compensation insurance is priced and audited. The Field Guide explains the classification system used by insurance companies, the audit process, experience modification factors, and how and why overcharges occur. Most importantly, it explains in plain language how employers can protect themselves from the common mistakes the insurance industry makes that cause Workers Comp premiums to be higher than they properly should be.

    Everything business owners and managers need to know to understand Workers Compensation insurance for their company, including how to reduce premium costs.
    Edward J. Priz, et al
    Many of the rules which determine premiums are understood only by employees in the audit and underwriting departments of insurance companies. The result is a built-in bias in the system which favors higher premiums. CompControl was written by an industry insider -- a consultant who has saved clients more than $4 million in overcharges. His book reveals how the system really works and how you can make it work for you.

    In the securities brokerage industry, "selling-away" refers to the prohibited practice of an Associated Person effecting or soliciting the sale of securities or investment products not held or approved with whom the broker is affiliated without prior written consent. FINRA regulators have seen a steady flow of selling-away cases over the years involving registered representatives who are being targeted by issuers, promoters and marketing agents to sell their nontraditional investment products to their retail customers. In many instances, promoters of these products are marketing them as non-securities products that do not have to be sold through a broker-dealer by a registered person. In a significant number of cases, associated persons have sold these investments to their customers away from the broker-dealer and without firm approval as required by FINRA Rule 3270. Selling-away often occurs in an independent branch or a satellite office, where Associated Persons are removed from the day-to-day oversight and supervision of their brokerage firm's compliance department.

    I receive phone calls throughout the year from attorneys who have taken on their first FINRA case and they frequently are unaware how the FINRA Dispute Resolution process differs from other venues. I thought it would be helpful to provide a quick overview for new participants and a refresher for those more experienced securities attorneys on how the FINRA Arbitration and Mediation process works.

    In FINRA-related cases many attorneys see discovery requests objected to by opposing counsel. Typically, opposing counsel objects to discovery requests citing that items requested are either "overly broad, vague, or ambiguous", or "impermissible per FINRA's Code of Arbitration Procedure". However, despite opposing counsel's reasoning, many objections to discovery requests are irrelevant and do not hold up in regard to FINRA's Code of Arbitration Procedure. Attorneys should not be intimidated or discouraged by these objections, but rather should understand that FINRA's guidelines concerning arbitration allow for most applicable and reasonably obtainable discovery information to be delivered.
