    After a lengthy research and development process and multiple patent applications, lotus pro now includes a Series I or Series II Ozone Stabilization Module with each High Capacity chemical-free cleaning unit shipped. The standard Series I Module and the more powerful Series II option extend the lifetime of dirt and germ killing Aqueous Ozone levels by a factor of hours, rather than minutes.

    “The beauty of Aqueous Ozone is that it cleans and kills germs and then over time turns back into water and oxygen,” explains Tersano President and lotus PRO inventor Steve Hengsperger. “The problem was that it turned back too fast, losing it's sanitizing power in a matter of minutes. We've solved this problem with our Series I and Series II modules, achieving up 24 hours of sanitizing strength under laboratory conditions with the Series II.”

    The Supreme Judicial Court has ruled in a high-profile Wage Act suit that a cleaning services company that claimed it was merely in the business of selling franchises misclassified its franchisees as independent contractors.

    The defendant company, Coverall North America Inc., argued in part that it had a shared economic interest with the third-party franchisees and therefore did not violate G.L.c. 149, §148B.

    But Justice Margot G. Botsford, writing for the court, disagreed.

    “[W]e address ‘franchise fees,’ i.e., the initial and additional fees that [plaintiff Anthony] Graffeo agreed to pay Coverall in order to enter into what the judge has determined to be a direct employment relationship with Coverall,” she wrote. “In substance, they operate to require employees to buy their jobs from employers, and in that respect we think they violate public policy.”

    The SJC was also asked to rule on whether, under the Wage Act, an employer and an employee can agree that the employee will pay the cost of workers’ compensation and other work-related insurance coverage.

    “We conclude that … an employer may not deduct

    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Irene came and went but the damage she wrought lingers.

    Across Staten Island yesterday, residents donned waterproof boots and descended into flooded basements, or called tree services and roofers to repair damage to their property. Leaf blowers, chainsaws and generators were humming on seemingly every other street.

    "It's unbelievable," said Christopher Hague, as he surveyed his flooded yard and basement in Ocean Breeze. "There's no power, either." For many, no power meant no sump pumps -- which meant basements full of water

    It was just one year since Jagath started his Janitorial Services Company.  He was shaping up well ahead of tough competition with rapidly growing customer base when the first disaster struck him from nowhere. His star salesman has given his letter of resignation.

     “Don’t let panic set in,” I advised him when he called me. “Whether your departing employee was a strong or mediocre performer, this is your opportunity to take a hard look at your recruitment policy.  Maybe this is the time to reorganize, reclassify, or make other major changes”.
