Introduction from the Editor

In this edition of our monthly e-newsletter, we are featuring an article on Scott Thompson. Scott Thompson is the former Yahoo CEO who lied about his educational credentials in order to qualify for the position of Chief Executive Officer. 

Our legal alert will cover three bills the State of California is considering. The bills being proposed to the legislature are in connection to the rehabilitation of ex-convicts. One of the bills will provide ex-convicts with training to gain employment.  The other bill would allow former prisoners with the opportunity to expunge their prior convictions after they have fulfilled their sentencing. 

Finally, our tip of the month will discuss the importance of employers including a disclosure on their website that they conduct backgrounds on all new hires.

Please forward our e-newsletter to friends and colleagues who may benefit from our published information.
