Thursday!

Special compliance webinar for Service Departments

Colorado has detailed laws that govern Service Department compliance. Several new pandemic-related laws were passed last year, which adds another layer of complexity to the employment law piece of compliance. Still another law took effect January 1; failure to comply could result in attorneys' fees AND treble damages for each claim!

Some of those laws include liability for an employer's failure to take COVID precautions and testing. Last month, Colorado voters passed Proposition 118, the state's new paid and medical leave law. And in 2018, the state legislature passed the Equal Pay for Equal Work Act, which goes into effect January 1. 

Designed for HR and Fixed Ops managers, as well as Service directors, managers, writers and department employees — and led by industry veterans Michael Dommermuth and Colin Walker, directors with Fairfield & Woods, P.C. — this webinar offers an update on new COVID-19 laws and regulations. You’ll learn more about how your service department and the employees you manage need to comply with these new rules. 

In addition to employment law, topics include consumer consent, documentation and form requirements, electronic transactions, recalls, liability to inform and how to handle abandoned vehicles.

Failure to follow these laws can result in fines; violations of some can result in an award of treble damages AND attorney's fees.

Join us Thursday, January 14 and start off 2021 by making sure your Service Department is on the right side of the law!

Webinar January 14

Is your service department on the right side of the law?

Join us 8 – 9:30 a.m. Thursday, January 14 to find out at the special Service Department-specific webinar: Under the Hood: Service Department Legal Compliance.

It goes without saying that the pandemic forced many changes in franchised new car dealerships, and in particular, the Service Department.

With the pandemic came new employment laws, including liability for an employer's failure to take COVID precautions and testing. Then last month, Colorado voters passed Proposition 118, the state's new paid and medical leave law. And in 2018, the state legislature passed the Equal Pay for Equal Work Act, which goes into effect January 1. 

Designed for HR and Fixed Ops managers, as well as Service directors, managers, writers and department employees — and led by industry veterans Michael Dommermuth and Colin Walker, directors with Fairfield & Woods, P.C. — this webinar offers an update on new COVID-19 laws and regulations. You’ll learn more about how your service department and the employees you manage need to comply with these new rules. 

In addition to employment law, topics include consumer consent, documentation and form requirements, electronic transactions, recalls, liability to inform and how to handle abandoned vehicles.
