Federal “Ban the Box” Legislation Advancing – the Fair Chance Act
Posted on Thursday October 29, 2015

The Fair Chance Act The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee recently voted in favor of legislation that would prohibit federal agencies and government contractors from inquiring about a job applicant’s criminal history until after making a conditional employment offer. The proposed law, the Fair Chance Act, would be the first to “ban the box” on the federal level. New Jersey Senator Cory Booker introduced the Fair Chance Act (S. 2021) in September with bi-partisan support. Companion legislation was also introduced in the House of Representatives. Accordingly, the measure is expected to advance quickly. The committee’s approval of the […]

Posted on Thursday September 17, 2015

What’s the deal with Bitcoin? As we have previously discussed on the Scarinci Hollenbeck Business Law News Blog, Bitcoin does not exist physically, although you must exchange hard currency to acquire it. Unlike cash, Bitcoin resides in your “electronic wallet” as a computer file. A network tracks the transfer of the computer files from purchaser to seller, but does not record the nature of the transaction. The value of Bitcoins can fluctuate significantly – often in a matter of minutes. Virtual currency has not yet become a mainstream form of payment, owing in significant part to concerns about security and […]

Is Delaware Losing Its Luster for Corporations?
Posted on Thursday August 13, 2015

Thanks to its business-friendly legal environment, Delaware is the home to many of the country’s largest corporations.  In fact, more than half of the Fortune 500 companies are incorporated in Delaware. As an added incentive to incorporate a business in Delaware, the Delaware Court of Chancery’s large body of corporate case law often makes it easier to predict how the court may rule in a business dispute. The court also exclusively relies on judges rather than juries to decide corporate litigation matters. However, despite these historical advantages, several notable companies have openly criticized the state in recent months, suggesting that […]

Is Poor Contract Management Hurting Your Bottom Line?
Posted on Thursday May 21, 2015

From client contracts to employment agreements to leases, even small businesses can have hundreds if not thousands of contracts. Thanks to technology, a lot of contract management is done digitally. However, many contracts are still prepared, signed, and filed using traditional paper format. The sheer increase in contract volume, as well as the diverse types of electronic and paper agreements, have made contract management even more important. However, studies suggest that many businesses may not be dedicating sufficient resources to managing their key agreements. In fact, a 2014 Huron Legal survey of 100 legal technology professionals revealed that 57 percent […]
