TTB Eliminates Some Review, Tries to Simplify COLA Process
That type, contrast and format better be right before you print! There was some interesting news yesterday, on BevLog. According to the site's report, the TTB has announced that they are cutting back on some of the stringent review procedures that make submitting COLAs a hassle. The TTB will no longer look at formatting requirements, expecting submitters the know the rules before submission. This means that the TTB will, theoretically, no longer sit on your label submission for a matter of months, just to return it because your color contrast was off. According to Industry Circular 2011-04 (graciously uploaded by the good folks at BevLog), the TTB "will no longer examine labels to determine whether the images included in the applications meet the type size, characters per inch, and contrasting background requirements." If you read further, the TTB explains that it reserves the right to review and return applications for these reasons when it deems necessary. Thus, beverage producers are not 100% clear of these requirements. So, what does this mean? Well, my first feeling was that this might actually have a worse impact on COLA submitters. There is some potential here for the TTB to call for an adjustment to labels well after you have packaged your product and sent it off into the marketplace. That is a frightening thought, but its a reality in light of the new procedure. My suggestion: know the formatting rules and setup internal controls. Ensuring that you are complying with the formatting requirements will save you a significant headache, down the road.

- Unsatisfactory rating voided because employee's "performance review," failed to comply with the employer's own procedures and thus undermined the integrity of the process Joyce v City of New York, 2018 NY Slip Op 03433, Appellate Division, First Department The Appellate Division annulled the determination of respondent New York City Department of Education [DOE] sustaining the "unsatisfactory" rating for the 2010-2011 academic year give to John Joyce, a tenured teacher. The court said that the record demonstrates "deficiencies in the performance review process" that resulted in Mr. Joyce being given an unsatisfactory rating for the 2010-2011 academic year. Citing Matter of Gumbs v Board of Educ. of the City Sch. Dist. of the City of N.Y., 125 AD3d 484, and Matter of Richards v Board of Educ. of the City Sch. Dist. of the City of N.Y., 117 AD3d 605, the Appellate Division noted that these deficiencies "were not merely technical, but undermined the integrity and fairness of the process." Mr. Joyce had received a satisfactory rating for the previous academic year and, in contravention of its own procedures, DOE failed to place him on notice that he was in danger of receiving an unsatisfactory rating for the 2010-2011 academic year until after April 28, 2011. Although DOE's procedures required that tenured teachers in danger of receiving an unsatisfactory rating have "formal observations including a pre-observation and post-observation conference by the principal … as part of a prescriptive plan to improve their teaching," Mr. Joyce received only one formal observation which took place one week before the end of the academic year and was not part of a prescriptive plan to improve his performance as a teacher.
