Expert Compensation Lawyer Jeremy Goldstein Explains Knockout Options Could Be The New Way To Compensate Employees

Jeremy Goldstein is a widely known compensation lawyer that runs Jeremy L. Goldstein And Associates LLC in New York. Today, he has been going through the knockout options for employees and has published articles on the web to help employees as well as corporations understand what this will mean in terms of profit and long-term growth. For the majority of history, corporations have been offering company stock to their employees as incentives for their hard work and productivity. This has become increasingly difficult in recent years because of the constant fluctuations in the market and the strain it puts on small companies to compensate their employees. At the end of the day, incentives are a way for companies to hire the best talent available on the market.

 

Knockout options are being offered as an alternative for companies to provide incentives, which is essentially stocks but with executive control. One of the issues with this is that executives control the power and therefore they are able to manipulate stocks and gold incentives, which would be a negative thing. That being said, this is not legal and therefore not likely to happen, according to Jeremy Goldstein anyway. Throughout his career, which spans decades, he has not seen this as an issue all that often dealing with compensation law. Also, there were recent studies published in the past couple of years that showed evidence of the impact knockout options has on companies long-term growth, which is increased by a significant amount after several years.

Regardless of the potential good or bad that comes with the knockout clause available to corporations, a compromise will be needed in the end for employees and companies to find what works best for them based on their incentive choices. Should a corporation wish to stick to traditional stock options, they must be aware of the potential issues that could lie ahead.

Enhanced Athlete Wins Lawsuit

Enhanced Athlete, a fitness company based in Cheyenne, Wyoming was called out and had a lawsuit filed against them by Nutrition Distribution. They claimed that Enhanced Athlete had been using false advertisements in order to get more sales. They believe they are the leader in the distribution of fitness and health products, and that their competitors have been falsely advertising these products and that they deserve a settlement. This claim is just one of 70 lawsuits that Nutrition distribution has filed against their competitors for false advertising, along with several other cease and desist orders.

 

Enhanced athlete has has claimed that Nutrition Distribution is just in the business of shaking down lawsuits in order to settle this matter with their competitors, so they coerce them so these companies do not have to face the legal fees of defending themselves against Nutrition Distribution’s claims against them. They argue that Nutrition Distribution has never been able to prove against any of the companies that they have targeted that their claims are true. Also they stated that there has been no proven correlation between these alleged false advertisement claims and Nutrition Distribution’s loss in sales.

 

Nutrition Distribution tried the court for a preliminary injunction with the claims against Enhanced Athlete for falsely advertising it’s bodybuilding and fitness products. The court denied their request and agreed with Enhanced Athlete’s stance that they couldn’t prove any connection between the advertising and loss of sales for Nutrition Distribution. The court also saying that these claims were no more than speculation and can’t be proven by the plaintiff. Enhanced Athlete’s Attorney Michael Adams of Rutan & Tucker, LLP says that his client is just the latest in a long line of false claims by the the plaintiff, Nutrition Distribution in which they did not win because they couldn’t even establish a casual connection. Scott Cavell, CEO of Enhanced Athlete added that his company would not be the next victim of Nutrition Distribution’s shakedown scheme. He says that they will continue to attempt these shakedowns if other companies continue to pay them nuisance settlements, but assured that his company will not fall in line.

 

As Enhanced Athlete puts this behind them and continues to flourish in the bodybuilding and fitness industry, they will keep doing what they have been, and continue expanding. As will their sister companies Enhanced Coaching and Enhanced Gear. Enhanced Gear is their site for apparel and other products dealing with their company. Enhanced Coaching is also a site that has the options of doing one on one training for bodybuilding and fitness routines. Enhanced Athlete, along with it’s sister sites plan to continue to put out a quality product as they always have.

Jacob Gottlieb

Getting a Brazilian Butt Lift in Dallas

The Brazilian butt lift in the Dallas, Texas area gives women hope after their buttocks lose their round perkiness or renewed hope if it never possessed a nice shapely butt. The Brazilian butt lift comes to the rescue of all those unfortunate people; now, they can have the butt of a well blessed body builder or athlete.

 

Where in Dallas should a woman go to get a Butt Lift?

1)North Texas Plastic Surgery

2)Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery

3)Butt Lift Dallas

4)Renaissance Plastic Surgery

5)Advanced Cosmetic Surgery

 

 

Each patient will undergo a procedure that shapes their butt in the most effective manner. If the patient has a sagging butt a different procedure will be undertaken to achieve the results desired: a traditional excisional butt lift. And if they have a less prominent butt and want it augmented, that will require an entirely different process. There is a general procedure that is performed for the average butt lift and it is as follows.

 

A Brazilian butt lift is performed in a two part procedure. During Part 1, fat is removed from some other part of the body using several tiny incisions to access the fat. The fat is often taken from love handles to help sculpt the body to be shapelier after the butt has been augmented. Liposuction is the process that removes the fat. Then the fat is processed and purified, usually in the operating room.

 

During Part 2, the fat is injected into the buttocks. The doctor then molds that fat into the ideal buttock shape, larger or more round, etc. The procedure ends when the doctor has injected enough fat to achieve the shape he wants.

 

The patient’s recovery lasts up to three weeks. For the first few weeks the patient will experience swelling a bruising in the buttocks. The patient will probably need pain medication to deal with the discomfort. Immediately after the procedure the buttocks will be their largest. It will take approximately three months for the buttocks to completely heal and decrease in size to the new size of the buttocks after the butt lift.

 

Betsy DeVos and Educational Reform

Betsy DeVos has been in the public eye for decades, and with her appointment as Secretary of Education for the Trump Administration, she continues to draw attention. Prior to her arrival on the national stage, Betsy DeVos was a very public figure in Michigan, where she grew up. Daughter of the wealthy and influential Prince family, she was educated at Calvin College and became involved with numerous conservative campaigns, political action committees and party organizations. She married the even wealthier Dick DeVos, son of the founder of Amway, and together they have made even bigger names for themselves in the political arena.

 

Though this may be the very public face of Betsy DeVos, close to her heart are her charitable organizations where she pushes for reforms through nonprofits. She is chairman of the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation, a member of multiple national and local boards such as the DeVos Institute for Arts Management, the Foundation for Excellence in Education and Kids Hope USA. She is a leader in the educational-choice movement, which endorses the public funding of charter schools and vouchers for private and religious private institutions.

 

In an interview with Philanthropy magazine, Ms. DeVos discussed her work in education reform further. Her passionate interest in education reform did not start suddenly. Rather, it grew out of visits to the Potter’s House Christian School in Grand Rapids, which was serving many low-income families. She was struck by the parents of children who did not have much choice when it came to schools, and who wanted to make sure that their children were receiving the best education in the safest place possible. They started supporting families at the school for whom tuition was a significant financial burden, and the movement to grew from there.

 

During the 1990s, Ms. DeVos served on the boards of several charities that worked to expand educational choice with the use of vouchers and tax credits. At the time, this was considered a radical movement, but both Dick and Betsy DeVos became politically involved and passed Michigan’s first charter school bill in 1993. As chair of the Michigan Republican Party, she pushed for a constitutional amendment for educational reform in Michigan to help expand charter schools throughout the state. The success of this movement spurred her supporters to try and push it nationwide.

 

Many people remain critical of her educational reform model, arguing that finite public tax dollars flowing too heavily toward charter schools and vouchers will stave public education centers. DeVos feels strongly that many of the nation’s public schools are downright failing, and that freedom of choice is the only option for reform.

Securus Technologies, Partnering Makes Perfect

Securus Technologies, a company specializing in connecting inmates with their loved ones, is making news lately. Wanting to expand its services, the company acquired two other companies recently, JPay and GovPayNet. The decision is proving itself to be worthwhile, as new beneficial technology is being introduced. The technology is known as a wireless containment system.

 

Working as a cell tower, WCS makes it impossible to use contraband cell devices from inside the facility where the system is placed. It works by intercepting the call or text message and telling the person attempting the communication that the call has been disconnected. Illegal communications from within correctional institutions have resulted in many unfortunate violent crimes. Among those injured by these crimes are Robert Johnson, a retired correctional facility worker, and even an infant. Johnson has since partnered with Securus to advance the technology and is even lobbying to make the systems mandatory by law.

 

JPay and GovPayNet are typically known as financial services companies. JPay is best known for money wiring and funding inmate accounts. The company has also recently introduced tablet computers made available to purchase by inmates. The tablets are loaded with educational software and limited entertainment. This helps the inmates return to the “outside” with a head start. Certainly, an advantageous effort for those returning to the working world. GovPayNet is known as one of the largest payment processors for governmental entities. Payments for items like court costs, probation, traffic tickets and the like are all under the GovPayNet umbrella. The companies are excited to bring new technology to the forefront and improve the already existing technology. Both companies have been in business for many years and are joining the 30 plus years of experience that Securus has in the business as a leader.

 

Securus Technologies also has a great record when it comes to customer service. The company has been accredited by the Better Business Bureau. Being awarded the prestigious Torch Award, the company is recognized for outstanding ethical practices. With an “A+” rating to match its over 95 percent customer satisfaction record, Securus continues its impressive streak. The company serves thousands of agencies across the country in addition to the 1.2 million inmates served. Other well-known services include video visitation, messaging, voicemail, and financial services. When it comes to taking care of everyone involved in the world of corrections, Securus proudly delivers quality, innovative products for the benefit of everyone.

Dick DeVos focuses on education reform and aviation

Dick DeVos has shaped the skyline of Grand Rapids, Michigan, and guided national efforts to reform educational choice. As the heir of an Amway Corp. co-founder, DeVos had the fortune and business connections to enable him to challenge a plan for a sports and convention center outside of downtown Grand Rapids in 1991.

 

He worried that the location would sap life from the core of the city as had happened in Detroit when the Palace of Auburn Hills and Pontiac Silverdome pulled sports teams out of the city. During his time as CEO of Amway between 1993 and 2002, he gathered business leaders to campaign against the proposed sports arena.

 

The group known as Grand Action focused on downtown and promoted the building of the DeVos Place Convention Center, the Michigan State University’s medical school, Van Andel Arena, Grand Rapids City Market, and the DeVos Performance Hall. These achievements added to the vitality of the city’s center and slowed urban sprawl.

 

DeVos and his wife Betsy also contributed $12.5 million to create a children’s hospital within Spectrum Health System. He serves as the chair of Spectrum’s board. Hospital construction started in 2006 and cost $103 million, but DeVos said that the facility allows local families to stay close to home when their children need advanced medical care.

 

On the state political scene, DeVos has exerted substantial influence. Although his gubernatorial campaign failed in 2000, DeVos successfully ushered a law into place in 2012 that prevented unions from requiring people to join their organizations as a condition of employment.

He and Betsy have also spent considerable resources within Michigan and nationwide to reform education. They funded their Dick & Betsy DeVos Family Foundation with $138.7 million between 1989 and 2015. The donations directed by this foundation primarily promoted charter schools.

 

His founding of the West Michigan Aviation Academy represents one of his success stories in the realm of education. The charter school located at Gerald R. Ford International Airport opened in 2010. DeVos also played a pivotal role in convincing Southwest Airlines to expand services at that airport.

 

DeVos has a lifelong enthusiasm for aviation. He possesses a license to pilot jets, helicopters, and single-engine planes. In September 2017, the U.S. Department of Transportation appointed him to the Management Advisory Council, a 13-member panel that advises the Federal Aviation Administration about long-term planning, policy, regulations, and spending.

Using Securus Technologies to Prevent Crimes

Working in law enforcement is both challenging and rewarding for the same reasons, mostly because you never really know what any given day will bring. Perhaps the most frustrating thing for me is trying to solve a crime so that the suspect is not able to hurt more innocent people along the way. Each day the crimes go unsolved, I feel my job is to put it to an end.

 

Recently, me and my fellow officers were doing a routine run to the local jail to interview inmates about their knowledge of a recent crime spree. While most inmates will not even think of helping authorities, we still make a run at it. This trip was rewarding because a corrections officer pulled us aside and told me that whatever we were talking to the inmates about was creating a real buzz on the jail phones.

 

This jail had the entire jail phone system updated by Securus Technologies and their unique call monitoring system. The system is in 2,510 jails already, and makes use of LBS software to scan all the calls at once and pick out unique chatter related to crimes. During our visit we must have hit a nerve because a few inmates raced to the phones shortly after and were discussing things about the case we were working on.

 

It was one of those calls where we discovered one of the inmates was on the phone with a suspect we were hunting, and that call revealed some crucial information that helped tip us off as to what their next move would be. Upon the release of that inmate, he joined up with that crew and they were nabbed the next day committing the crimes we were trying to prevent in the first place. The monitoring system is a tool we rely on now to help prevent other crimes.
