Wage and Hour Law: Avoiding costly mistakes

Please join us from 8-11:30 a.m. next Thursday, August 22 for this special Employers Council seminar, led by attorney Susan Fisher.

It's a very timely seminar in that class action wage and hour lawsuits now outnumber discrimination lawsuits. Yet if you know the common pitfalls and mistakes that employers make in administering the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), you can avoid a costly lawsuit.

Susan uses current case law — including the recent decision on Encino Motorcars vs. Navarro, where service advisors are exempt from FLSA under the salesperson exemption.

The half-day seminar includes Department of Labor (DOL) Administrator interpretations and enforcement efforts, along with the DOL's salary basis and salary level requirement for white collar exemption.

Finance Mastery for non-Financial Managers

— a workshop that links your management role to the bottom line

You know that performance — compensation, bonuses, promotions — is based on bottom-line results. For your key leaders to become top performers — and make bigger contributions to your bottom line —  they must be able to read and understand financial statements.
If you want them to understand HOW what they do affects the dealership’s profitability and their department’s bottom line results, register them for Mastery of Finance for non-Financial Managers today.

This one-day, very interactive workshop is for Service, Parts, Sales and F&I department leaders who are NOT financial managers, yet are responsible for bottom-line results.
By the end of the day, they’ll know:

  • What the three types of cash flow are and which one is the most important to your daily operations.
  • What the relative profitability of the five lines of business are at your dealership.
  • How costs are allocated to your dealership’s departments.
  • How to distinguish cost of goods sold from operating expenses.
