The one, undisputed leader
The one, undisputed leader

It is common knowledge in our industry that there is one undisputed leader in reporting on the topics, businesses and trends that impact all of us the most, and it is shop-eat-surf.com. Their access to those who make our industry happen is second to none, and we value not only the content of their reporting but the editorial thought on what it all means both in the present as well as the future. If we were asked to give a rating, it would be five out of five stars.

Executive Edition is a must have
Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

CFA hosts webinar Thursday on compliance with new California law barring slavery and human trafficking

By Press Releases
December 07, 2011 12:52 PM






If you are not in compliance with the new California law banning slavery and human trafficking, S657 that takes effect on Jan. 1, you could get sued by the California Attorney General and third parties.


Requirements of the law:

a) Put information on the home page of your website. The information on the home page must address how your company is combating human trafficking.


You may put a link on your homepage to a different section of your website where those details are located, but the initial link must be on your homepage. Companies that do not have websites must respond to requests for information within thirty (30) days of receipt of any request.


b) Have a compliance program to meet the specific requirements. Identify what your company is doing within its supply chain to "evaluate and address risks of human trafficking and slavery."


Your suppliers must be asked to certify that they are compliant with company standards to combat human trafficking and slavery. Both domestic AND international suppliers must "certify" that they comply with their local laws.


You must also audit your suppliers and provide training to your own staff about mitigating the risks of slavery and human trafficking in your supply chains.


Learn more about the new law and your compliance requirements at our webinar on Thursday Dec. 8.
