    I would say the new labor law is causing a bit of unease within our company as we now have to implement a timeclock which is both new and frustrating to the seasoned managers.

      Thanks for the response Meauxhala. The ISS team was just discussing this. Can you elaborate on what you're doing and why?

        Are you saying that salaried managers have to punch a clock now? Are they still paid a salary or hourly? Is this federal or state or both?

          We have a few facilities in Illinois and they just passed a law requiring us to charge Sales Tax for stored vehicles. We're still waiting to see if they're going to make it active going forward, or if we're going to have to charge it to all existing rentals as well.

            You would think that if the ALL KNOWING politicians pass a law like that they would have made the law address exactly what your question was. Dolts!

              Well as I have preached for several years, Managers should be getting overtime pay, salary or not. I remember one time in one of my sessions an owner said, "I pay my manager $60,000 a year so she doesn't deserve overtime". OMG. Luckily, many in the audience set him straight very quick.

              We have paid hourly for several years now because of the exempt salary changes that were supposed to come a few years back but didn't. I liked the fact that my employees were accountable and they were paid accordingly so we just stuck with it.

                Well we have a timeclock in place and are requiring everyone to clock in and out.

                This raises issues with part time / relief managers as well as maintenance because they don't always have access to the office.

                Additionally, lunch breaks. Managers don't always take lunch but now as an hourly employee they are required by law.

                  Law by the Department of Labor

                  They are no longer salary but now hourly.

                    We just bought a facility and the one manager that has been working there for 20 years had to punch a time clock. I took it out , I now trust her to work the hours she is suppose to We have checked her out she is always 15 minutes early and works a few minutes over if needed. A time clock for one person, CRAZY

                      They're not quite ready but wanted to stop by and see what we have. Or they're waiting for help but wanted to see sizes. If they mention price I tell them that we are very competitive with facilities around the area because we set our prices to be close to them and vice versa....

                      Last July? August? I can't even remember anymore, we had an auction and one of the winners found a carton of ashes. So, I've contacted the owner of said remains over and over and over, for the past few months. I finally got her sister involved because I was getting, "I'll pick it up on Sunday,"...

                      Either the price isn't right or they need to wait for someone to help them move....
