Securus: Fighting for The People

In today’s day and age, you need people that are going to fight for the little people and fight for what is right. They aren’t going to sit idly by and do nothing. They will fight and they will claw and they will do whatever is right for the people. That is exactly what Securus Technologies is doing with their recent findings in regards to Global Tel Link. For those unfamiliar with Securus Technologies, they are a company that looks for civil and criminal justice tech solutions for the public safety. To sum it up, they are all about the people. That is who they fight for and that is who they care about and who they are passionate about, at the end of the day.

They have announced that they are going to release a report which focuses on all of the wrongdoings of Global Tel Link and how Global Tel Link has lied to the customers, treated them poorly, and taken advantage of them. They are going to out them for all of their wrongdoings. They aren’t doing this to garner attention or get special praise. They are doing this, because it is the right thing to do, and they know it needs to be done.

However, this is only the first in a series of articles they will be releasing to expose GTL for taking advantage of customers and using their power for all of the wrong reasons. GTL is a company that allows its clients to speak to inmates in prison. However, their prices are outrageous and they have used many shady tactics on poor people that just want to speak to their loved ones. They shouldn’t have to suffer for the crimes committed by their loved ones. They just want to speak to them at a reasonable cost.

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Protects Whistleblowers

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform was part of the Consumer Protection Act that took place in 2010. It was one of the biggest overhauls to the country’s financial regulation since the Great Depression. As part of the new guidelines, the act now has a whistleblower program that offers employees protection and also incentives if they report any violations of federal security laws. The violations must be reported to the Securities and Exchange Commission or SEC. Employees are protected and feel safety when they report these offenses.

There are not many firms around the country that dedicate their focus to “whistleblowers,” however, Labaton Sucharow was the first firm to step out and make his focus about this delicate part of the historic legislation. His goal is to advocate and protect anyone labeled as a SEC whistleblower. The firm is built on a market-leading securities litigation platform. Adding the Whistleblower Representation Practice section to the firm gives the firm another level of expertise. They have a whole team of in-house investigators that have world-class knowledge of the matter. Added to that group are financial analysts as well as forensic accountants.

Also important to have on staff are police officers and law enforcement professionals who are well equipped and able to provide representation. Currently, the firm is being led by Jordan Thomas. He was the director of the Assistant Chief Litigation Counsel, which was a division of the SEC’s enforcement department. He played a large role in developing this program while at the SEC. Who better to help those who fall into the whistleblower category than one who was helpful in its inceptions.

Any monetary sanctions that the SEC collects from the tips received from the whistleblowers will be shared. According to the rules, 10-30 percent of all money will be split, not to exceed $1 million. There are additional awards based on the amount collected that may also be given. Employers who are reported by employees cannot retaliate in any way, the Dodd-Frank Act prohibits such behavior. Security violations can also be reported by a whistleblower if they have an attorney representing them.

Those who want to learn more about the whistleblower team can call or send an email for an appointment. A consultation, along with a case evaluation is free. Though it is asked that personally identifying information be kept silent during the initial meeting. Those who need translation services will also find that the firm is more than accommodating.

The Benefits Of Sharing Your Work Space With Your Co-Workers

It has been proven that people do much better and are more productive in offices where employees share their space with other employees. I know that some people prefer closed, private offices but you lose creativity and the spark you get from dealing with other people. Working in open work areas results in being happier, being less stressed, being more creative and open to others ideas and thoughts. This makes workers do better overall work, and the work they do is of much better quality. This can be even be done with contract workers via the internet for the same effect.

In their studies, it was found that contractors who are working for different companies or on different projects worked best together because there was no direct competition and that encouraged sharing their thoughts and ideas openly with others. They felt they were able to be themselves and not be judged and to be more confident with others. They found open work space created a place to help each other and give ideas and thoughts freely. Sharing a work space also gives them the freedom to work when it is convenient to them and when they want to work with others instead of a set schedule. This is because sharing work spaces is a seven days a week/twenty-four hours a day opportunity, they can work privately when they need it or work in a group and gives them the flexibility to do what they want when they want which gives them more control when they wanted that option. They also found that adding a bit of regularity to working with others gave them more structure to their day which helped in productivity. They also found that being a part of a group such as the online groups Grind, Co-Merge, NextSpace, and WeWork helped them feel part of a group which made them happier and resulted in better productivity. Workers liked discussing their projects and ideas with others made them more creative, happier and to be more broadminded in their work.

Workville shared office space in New York is not only a place for people to work together, but to be a very friendly and open space. They offer private offices, shared-space offices as well as open work areas with meeting areas, and telephones. They also have a cafe, terraces with open work spaces, and a lounge area that encourages a casual work environment in which to work.

SEC Whistleblower Advocates Instilling Honesty and Positive Business Practices

Securities violation and business practices that are not in line with the demands of ethics should be reported to help prosecute those caught in the unfair practices. SEC Whistleblower lawyers are leaders in the industry and have availed facilities that will help reveal the truth about different businesses. Some of the areas they are working on cleaning is business practices that tend to falsify information either for tax evasion or to confuse buyers. Under the whistle-blowers program, there will be a secure system that looks into information reported about the violations made by different businesses and individuals.

Monetary awards to whistleblowers
Whistle blowing is a complex task that also carries risks, so those who successfully submit truthful information highlighting violations that should be looked into will be honored and awarded. SEC Whistleblower Advocates program offers monetary compensation depending on the significance of the details submitted as well as delays encountered before submitting data to the organization. Those who offer timely and relevant information are likely to receive higher compensation.

Whistle-blowers will be paid 10 – 30 percent of the total monetary sanctions received from SEC enforcement. Once this threshold is met, the whistle-blower may also receive additional awards depending on the sanctions placed on related actions by law enforcement organizations and regulatory bodies.

Thought leadership
To help develop the system, the SEC Whistleblower Program invites thought leaders, who come from different industries and the academia to engage in conversations that lead to formulation of policies that help to protect the industry against unfair practices. All the materials found useful are assembled and updated online for reference.

Expanding internationally
The fact that the economy is global also means securities fraud is not limited to one geographical region. Companies have opened branches in different countries and although there are regulations in every country, this may not be enough to guarantee completely fair practices. If it is revealed that a company operating in a different country but based in the U.S. has violated certain regulations, the same laws applicable in the U.S. will be used to charge the company. It does not matter where the whistle-blower comes from. What is most important is whether the information provided is factual.

In this program, companies will be required to embed a positive culture and truthfulness in their DNA. Doing so will allow like-minded employees to join the companies and the business environment will be cleared of obstacles.
