LGMs are running fast and furious

Earlier this month, CADA launched its 100 LGMs in 100 days campaign. Since September 2, CADA and dealers have met with 30 legislators around the state. When you're asked, please make every effort to attend a Legislative Grassroots Meeting near your home or your dealership (they may be in different counties). And ask your key leaders to attend. 

During these meetings, legislators learn some amazing things about dealers, especially when those meetings are hosted at a dealership. For example, during yesterday's LGM with Rep. Mark Baisley, Kevin Shaughnessy revealed some extraordinary developments at Phil Long Ford in Littleton. Baisley, who owns a tech firm in the Denver Tech Center, asked to see what Phil Long is doing with their blue tooth technology in the service department. That prompted a full tour of the Phil Long Ford campus.

Last chance to register for tomorrow's webinar!

Are you ready for all the changes in Colorado's new pay equity law?

Can you afford NOT to be ready?

Join us tomorrow at 8:30 a.m.  as Fisher Phillips Director Todd Fredrickson leads the intense webinar: Gearing up for Colorado’s new Pay Equity Law.

Although there's been a federal law on the books for more than 57 years, the Colorado law goes even further. And failure to comply could mean hundreds of thousands of dollars out of your pocket in settling just one pay discrimination claim. (And that doesn't even include attorney's fees!)

Todd will cover the nuances to the Colorado law that could put your dealership at risk for hundreds of thousands of dollars in paying claims for pay discrimination, if you’re not all buttoned up by New Year’s Eve.

He'll also walk you through steps on how to prepare a pay audit, which could help you avoid any pay discrimination claims. But to do that, it HAS to be done by December 31!

Designed for dealer principals, general managers, HR managers, business managers and controllers, Todd will walk you through preparing or updating compensation plans and job descriptions to comply with federal and state regulations.

In addition, Todd will outline what you can expect from the U.S. and Colorado Departments of Labor if you are audited.

Join us next at 8:30 a.m. next Wednesday, September 23 as Fisher Phillips Director Todd Fredrickson leads the fast-paced webinar: Gearing up for Colorado’s new Pay Equity Law, which goes into effect January 1.

He’ll cover the nuances to the Colorado law that could put your dealership at risk for hundreds of thousands of dollars in paying claims for pay discrimination, if you’re not all buttoned up by New Year’s Eve.

He’ll compare the federal 57-year-old federal Equal Pay Act, along with the differences between it and the new Colorado Equal Pay Equal Work Act — which goes much further.

In two weeks:

Are you ready for Colorado’s new pay equity law?

If not, a special webinar could keep you from paying hundreds of thousands of dollars on just one claim!

Colorado’s Equal Pay for Equal Work Act goes into effect January 1. If you’re not in compliance with the law by then, you could be liable for hundreds of thousands of dollars for just one pay discrimination claim.

What’s more, Colorado’s new law will require employers to make reasonable efforts to post open positions to all current employees. These postings must include wage/salary, benefits and other compensation. Failure to do that with one posting could result in fines up to $10,000 for each violation.

You can see how violating one or more sections of this new law can add up to headaches and upwards of $1 million or more, depending on how many claims you face.

Skip the chance of facing pay discrimination charges by ensuring you have the following all squared away by New Year’s Eve:

  • Job description for each position
  • Compensation plan for each job description
  • Completed pay audit

One way to avoid most potential claims is to ensure you have a completed pay audit in place by New Year’s Eve.

Join us Wednesday, September 23 as Todd Fredrickson, director with employment law firm Fisher Phillips, walks us through the steps needed to ensure your dealership is in compliance by the end of the year. He’ll cover a step-by-step plan for completing a pay audit — whether you do it yourself or contract with an HR consultant or attorney
