Improving a Business' IQ: Strategies to Make Business Work Better Through Research

2010-08-13

Consider Tax Impact When Negotiating Employment Suits or Severance

2010-08-13
Every April, our collective stress level rises as we scramble to meet our tax deadlines. Particularly tricky federal tax issues come up when an employee either receives money from a lawsuit settlement with his or her employer, or severance pay upon leaving a job. In most situations both are taxable as income, but subtleties in the law create some exceptions. Taxation of Settlements Generally A settlement is an agreement reached between parties to a lawsuit. Usually the plaintiff receives money damages to compensate for his or her injury, and in exchange agrees to ...

North Carolina's Contributory Negligence Rules Outdated and Unfair

2010-08-13
Imagine that you were in a bad car crash. Not only was there extensive property damage to your vehicle, but you also suffered severe injuries and have thousands of dollars in unpaid medical bills to prove it. In an attempt to recoup your losses from the insurance company of the driver who hit you, you file a personal injury lawsuit. While there is some question about whether the other driver is 100% at fault, you are confident that he is at least partially responsible for your losses. The court, however, disagrees and finds you shared fault - 10% of it - for causing ...

Public Outcry for FDA Reform

2010-08-13
High-profile, deadly and previously undisclosed side-effects of mass-marketed prescription medications like Vioxx and Avandia have consumer watchdog groups, medical professionals and the public at large wondering if the Food and Drug Administration can stem the tide of "bad medicine."

Unfortunately, in its quest to be better, the FDA may have hindered ...

Federal and Florida State Policies Put Bikes on More Equal Footing

2010-08-13
Today cyclists are a familiar sight on Florida's streets, but it has only been in the last generation or so (since the 1970s) that cycling among adults has really taken off. Before that, cycling was generally regarded as a children's pursuit. While many Florida roads have had bike lanes added to them, in many cases it's not a perfect fit, and on other roads adding bike lanes has proved difficult due to traffic patterns, natural and man-made obstacles, and expense. In March of 2010, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced a major policy change, saying that it was ...

An Increase in Efforts to Enforce Financial Fraud Crimes

2010-08-13

Too Much Plastic Surgery Can Have Devastating Effects

2010-08-13
Medical malpractice claims against plastic surgeons can involve a variety of procedures.

But imagine the combined effect of undergoing ...

High Stakes for Overdue Borrowers: Are Debtors Prisons Coming Back?

2010-08-13
Overwhelming debt puts plenty of pressure on borrowers who must endure constant creditor harassment while they choose which obligations to face during difficult financial times. But that is a minor nuisance compared to spending a night or two in jail. The practice of locking up debtors who fail to respond to legal notices is not practiced everywhere, but reports from communities across the country reveal that debt collection companies have enlisted local authorities to use the full force of the law in enforcing warrants for even minor debt. Formal debtor's prisons were ...

The Dodd-Frank Act: Financial Reform and New Whistleblower Protections

2010-08-13

One important strategy is the extension of incentives ...

A Backlog for SSDI Cases: Is Help on the Way for Disability Applicants?

2010-08-13
One little known side effect of the prolonged recession is a rise in the number of applications for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). In an average year, the Social Security Administration considers 2.5 million applications for disability benefits. But cases were up by 20 percent over the past year and are likely to increase to well over 3 million in the coming year, according to SSA chief actuary Stephen Goss. One obvious reason is that workers who have endured disabilities may decide to seek benefits after losing a ...

Bureaucratic Reform of Truck Driver Safety Inches Ahead

2010-08-13
This scene is all too common on North Carolina highways and back roads: on a recent July night near the end of a long drive, a Georgia trucker hauling over 20 tons of a highly combustible chemical overturned on a sharp mountain curve. He had followed GPS commands onto a rural gravel road between Lenoir and Banner Elk, where he planned to sleep for the night before delivering his load the next day. Perhaps the only uncommon thing about this accident is that no other vehicles were involved, and nobody was severely injured or killed. Trucking accidents like this happen ...
