Under the Dome
An Update from the State House
Last week saw a couple of business unfriendly bills pass.  The Senate Labor Committee took testimony on S.172, An Act Relating to Labor and Labor Relations - Equal Pay Data Collection and Reporting and then passed it on a 5-1 vote.  
The bill requires employers with 100 employees or more to file an annual report with the Department of Labor and Training providing employee compensation information broken down by age, gender, race, ethnicity, job category and occupation title.

Scam Alert: Phony Proposal Emails Target Small Business Owners

Scam Alert: Phony Proposal Emails Target Small Business Owners
If you are a small business owner, you always have an eye out for your next contract. Receiving an RFP (request for proposal) could be a way to win a new client. Unfortunately, it may also be a scam. Scammers are sending RFP emails that use the names and info of real companies in hopes of fooling business owners.
How the Scam Works:
You get an email with the subject "Communication Proposal PDF" or something similarly generic. The message appears to be from a potential client asking you to download the RFP and submit a bid on a new project. The email may even have the company's signature block with a real address and staff contact person. 
This scam takes many forms. Sometimes, the "PDF" is actually a malware-infected file. In other versions, the link points you to another website that requests that you provide bank account information, under the guise of needing payment information. No matter what the con, be sure to delete it. read more>>
