Watch-outs. 49. In-the-meantime clause and Internet security
Filed under: Position Searching, Mature professionals, Legal matters, Observ. Trends
Posted by: site admin @ 9:26 am

It is humbling to be in Al Sklover’s network.  Not only
do I list his blog in the blogroll — Employment law, but
also I enjoy reading his regular comments.  Also, I
have recently gotten on a list receiving “tech trends”
and one on Internet security caught my eye.

EMPLOYMENT NEGOTIATIONS WHEN STARTING
SOURCE:  Sklover Working Wisdom Nov. 2013
Re telling a story about a professional who joined a firm,
was promised bonus potential, and was disappointed
that the firm buy-out left her holding an empty bag,
he pointed out the usefulness of “in-the-meantime”
clauses in contracts of employment.  This is a
protection for a contracted ‘thing of value’ offered
[Al lists bonus, vested stock or stock options, promotion,
partnership, sales territory, and so forth] that for
‘any reason [except employee misconduct, Al points out]
you do not receive it, you will be tendered either its
monetary value or its equivalent.’

MOBILE COMMUNICATION SECURITY

It is easy for cyber criminals to capture all your information
when you are logged into free, unencrypted wi-fi.

don’t
use websites that require your password or other confidential
information, - See more at:

1. Do not use websites that require your passwords
or other confidential information.
2. Stay on encrypted channels:  https
3. If the only information is “free WIFI”, avoid using it.
4. Any misspelled words in addresses or entries, get out or
delete.
5. Erase any history of your browsing.
6. Using Windows OS select location type “public”
7. When in an establishment, ask for the validity of the “hot spot”

Careful
attention to your Wi-Fi usage when on the road will go a long way to
keeping data safe. As a matter of practice, turn off Bluetooth and any
features on a device that automatically connect to Wi-Fi networks. It’s
easy for cyber-criminals to steal information through an automatic
connection.

The rule of thumb is to
avoid public Wi-Fi networks, especially a network that doesn’t require a
password to access — and certainly never, ever enter any credit card
information in a “free” public Wi-Fi network.
