Did your pregnancy lead to unexpected discrimination at work?

Having a child or even multiple children may have been a dream of yours since you were a young girl. You likely looked forward to motherhood and all the joys and difficulties that would come with it. What you may not have expected, however, was to face difficulties at your place of employment.

How to succeed as an entrepreneur

Starting a company in Colorado or any other state can be a risky thing to do. However, this can be seen as a good thing as startups are generally considered to be experiments designed to push forward new ideas. Roughly half of all startups fail to make it to their fourth year, and this is partially because of poor planning on the owner's part. Business owners who start companies tend to be young, which means that they lack the experience necessary to run a successful company.

How to have a successful merger

Those who own companies that operate in Colorado or anywhere else need to have a vision for their organizations. In some cases, this vision may include acquiring other companies to help it grow or otherwise meet its goals. However, it is generally not enough to simply acquire a new company and expect good things to happen. According to one study, 83% of acquisitions failed to yield positive results.

New study highlights trends in ageism

As ageism continues to be a major problem in several industries, it is important to compare and contrast as much research on the subject so we can make the workplace safer for several older Colorado workers. Recently, a career site for women surveyed 1,000 people over 40 years old to observe the current state of the issue and if there were any major differences between men and women.

PayPal launches trademark lawsuit against loan company

Many people in Colorado use online payment systems like PayPal and Venmo to transfer money or make purchases. Now PayPal is accusing a loan company of infringing its trademarks with its brand, Lenmo. Lenmo, described as a peer-to-peer lending startup, is far less well-known than PayPal or its Venmo brand. PayPal says that Lenmo obviously intended to benefit from the popularity and fame of Venmo without any connection to the company. In addition, it argues that consumers may even believe that Lenmo is a part of Venmo or PayPal due to the similarities in their names.

Amazon faces trademark infringement lawsuit

Amazon Prime trucks deliver products throughout Colorado and the rest of the country. The service may be so popular that it's having a negative impact on the similarly named trucking company Prime Inc. On July 2, Prime Inc. filed a lawsuit against Amazon in a Missouri federal court for trademark infringement.
