How Do Websites Get Hacked? Why and How It Can Be Avoided

Supreme Court's Ruling Means No ACA Compliance Reprieve 

In what many are viewing as an anticlimax, the U.S. Supreme Court's June 25 ruling in King v. Burwell left the status quo in place regarding the Affordable Care Act's (ACA's) tax-credit subsidies for individual "marketplace" coverage and, indirectly, the employer mandate to provide group health care coverage.

NJ Supreme Court Decision Could Lead to Limits on Discrimination Suits


The NJ Supreme Court agreed to review a case that allowed an employer to reduce the statutory period in which a worker can file a discrimination claim against an employer.

The state's Law against Discrimination (LAD) generally gives workers up to two years to file a discrimination-related lawsuit, but in 2014 the Superior Court of NJ's Appellate Division, in Sergio Rodriguez v. Raymours Furniture Co. Inc., ruled that a company was within its rights to limit the filing period to only six months. Read more...
