The 7th Circuit just made it a lot easier to sue over data breaches
Shared from
One of the truisms of big litigation is that plaintiffs lawyers are adaptive folks. That’s certainly been borne out over the last couple of years in class actions against corporations whose customer or employee information has been compromised in hacker attacks.

Shared from JD Supra
The United States Department of Labor (DOL) has just issued its first “Administrator’s Interpretation” of 2015 (“Memo”).

UPS' employment policies come under scrutiny, again
Shared from National Law Review
Last week, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed a class action lawsuit against the United Parcel Service (UPS), claiming that the company had repeatedly failed to accommodate certain religious beliefs. Specifically, the complaint alleges that since 2004, UPS has refused to hire or promote certain individuals whose religious practices conflicted with the company’s dress code. Under UPS’ dress policy, male employees who either have a supervisory position or who have customer contact are not allowed wear beards or grow their hair below their collars.
