Service Advisor Exemption Update

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

A House Appropriations Subcommittee voted today to reinforce that service advisors, the frontline employee-salespersons in the service department, remain exempt from overtime pay requirements. In 2011, the Department of Labor (DOL) attempted to reverse its own 1978 opinion and multiple court decisions and roll back the longstanding exemption. DOL is currently prevented from enforcing any change due to an identical restriction in the FY 2012 Omnibus Appropriations Act which preserves the exempt status of service advisors  until Sept. 30, 2012. National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) chairman Bill Underriner,  advocating for preserving the exemption status, has been working closely with the Department of Labor and with  Congressman Denny Rehberg, R-Mont on this issue.  The efforts of Mr. Underriner and Rep. Rehberg are highlighted in today’s and press release. “Dealers across the country applaud Rep. Rehberg’s leadership. His focus on controlling regulatory costs and eliminating red tape helps give dealers the resources to expand their businesses and hire additional staff,” said Mr. Underriner in the press release. The FY 2013 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations bill will now proceed to the full House Appropriations Committee for consideration.

NLRB Delays NLRA Employee Rights Notice Posting Requirement Until January 31, 2011

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

The National Labor Relations Board  has pushed back the requirement to post a notice advising employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act from November 14, 2011 until January 31, 2012. A number of trade and industry groups have challenged the posting requirements include NADA.
The NLRB website states “as of January 31, 2012, most private sector employers are required to post a notice advising employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act. The 11-by-17-inch notice should be posted in a conspicuous place, where other notifications of workplace rights and employer rules and policies are posted. View the final rule in the Federal Register.”
