Beware of misclassifying workers as independent contractors
By D. Albert Brannen
If your workforce includes contract employees, freelancers, casual workers or independent contractors by any other title, you should seriously analyze whether such workers should be recategorized as employees. The risks of not properly classifying workers can be substantial and include having to ante up back pay, liquidated damages, unpaid taxes, penalties, interest, accounting and attorneys' fees. In addition to these economic risks, other negative consequences can include interference with ongoing operations and harm to an employer's reputation.

The Economic Times
There are many ways to demolish a building, and some of them are spectacular: blowing it up from the inside so it collapses on itself, or smashing it to bits with a 2-ton wrecking ball. But in Tokyo, a cheek-by-jowl city with many outdated high-rises and tough recycling and environmental restrictions, Japanese companies are perfecting what might be called stealth demolition.

Slideshow: 8 of the world's most spectacular infrastructure projects
CNN
Austerity, spending cuts and deficit reduction. With all the talk of fiscal restraint, it's easy to assume there's little in the coffers for the sort of vast infrastructure projects we've seen over the last century. True, the EU has reduced its transport infrastructure budget through 2020, while groups like the American Society of Engineers have stated that too little is being put aside to fund the big projects of tomorrow — but it's not all doom and gloom.
