The Brentwood Voice of Business SEPTEMBER 2008

Vol. 44, No 9

GET INVOLVED Like most years when there is an election, we say, “This is a critical time in history, so everyone should be engaged, get involved, get out and vote.” And probably at that time it was a critical time. And yes, again it is a critical time in our history. The world seems in disarray. We have been at war for years; the economy worldwide, nationally and locally is struggling. The State of California is paralyzed by politics, (the worst I’ve seen in 40 years) education costs are skyrocketing, fuel costs are at an all-time high, and consumer confidence is at an all-time low. Yet most people are silent about the election. Naturally, most know there is an election, but they’re not talking about it. No one knows that we vote this November for a Congressman, a new State Senator and a new State Assemblyman; in addition to the candidates’ elections, there are ballot measures at the state and local levels that nobody seems to talk about or even know about. I would encourage everyone to get engaged in the elections. Your knowledge on issues and individuals running will make a difference. Your knowledge will make a difference in how you discuss issues, and the candidates with others, and how you vote on Election Day. Elections should not be about D’s and R’s, Red and Blue, but should be about issues. After spending time studying the issues and the candidates, one should vote for the individual one thinks will do the best job for the position and what are the short and long-term consequences of a ballot issue. For some of us being involved seems like it’s in our blood and our genes. Our parents were engaged, our kids are engaged learning about candidates and issues, volunteering and being active in elections. For others, they don’t seem to care, or have been involved, nor do they ever vote. And yet these people seem to be the ones that complain the most about everything and everybody. Every day I get asked about the economy, “Harry, when do you think things will turn around?” My response is, “I think people are looking for change and a new leadership at the top. I am not sure it makes a difference who gets elected, we just need a new leader who we can all get behind to move the country forward.” Get out there, study the issues, and vote, and bring your family along with you. It will make a difference. It will count.

DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE By Bill Fee

Business is different today than it was just a few years ago. People are not buying new items for their homes or taking vacations to far off places. So as a business owner what do we do to keep our customer base and attract new customers to our business! photo by

Customer service could be the answer and a solution. Years ago, I would get upset at how a lot of employees could care Generations Photography less if a customer was in need of assistance, almost mad that you (a customer) would interrupt their phone call or a conversation with a fellow employee to ask a question. Today, those employees have been replaced with mid level management that is concerned about your needs. What changed? Upper management and business owners started to get involved again with how they make money. CUSTOMER SERVICE (in big letters) has started to mean something again. We the business owners want to stay around and weather out the slow economy, grow our business and even enjoy what we do for a living. Customer Service could improve almost any type of business. Whether we spend more time talking to our customers and getting to know them or going out of our way to do a little something extra, it will be noticed and you should get rewarded. I feel my business was a lot like what I’ve been talking about. I had employees that were lazy and sometimes rude to my customers. Guess what, they went looking for other employment. I’ve built my business around customer service and friendship. When those employees left it took awhile to get back what they took away. Customer service and friendship has helped my business and now I have a few good workers that are working towards expanding my business and so far it’s working. On a lighter side, I hope you haven’t forgotten about the Chamber golf tournament, September 19th is the date and it’s on a Friday, make it a long weekend. Enjoy yourself and if you’re at the course have fun. On page 10 of this newsletter you will find a sign up sheet to play in the tournament. If you would like to sponsor or donate prizes for the raffle, please contact Jilda in the Chamber office at 634-3344. We hope to see you there for a fun tournament and dinner afterwards.

Mission Statement: The Brentwood Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary organization dedicated to the promotion of the civic and commercial progress of the community. We will continuously strive to maintain and foster a healthy business climate for Chamber members and the entire community.

Page 6 GREEN WITH GRATITUDE “Going green” gets Noah to Washington DC!

Noah Pena is 13 years old and goes to Adams Middle School. He has been a member of the Honor Society since 4th grade (all A’s). He’s involved in the youth group at our church and participates in Track and Field at Adams. He recently ran a 5K in Discovery Bay and came in 1st place overall. He also participated in the Hershey Invitational State Track and Field Event. He loves camping and hiking and the SF Giants. He is a proud older brother of Reyna—11, Alea 8 and Mateo—5. He plays alto saxophone in the Adams Wind Ensemble. They are planning a tour of Washington, DC in March of 2009. This is a huge undertaking, and the band is doing a lot of fundraising to try to make at least half of the $1800 per student that it will cost. That means we needed $900 for Noah. We could have dipped into debt to make sure Noah had his half of the tour money, but we chose to pull together as a family and make it our summer project to earn the $900. A friend of ours said that her son collected recycling for a year and was able to save $500 in doing so. We loved that “go green” idea and decided to take it on. The first thing Noah did was make a flyer to ask neighbors to help and to contribute their recycling. Our whole family plus the daycare kids ran around all the neighborhoods surrounding our house and placed these flyers at their doorsteps. That day alone we filled up our suburban to the brim. We’ve had a steady flow of cans and bottles on our porch ever since. Collecting from the neighborhood was working well, so Noah decided to take it a step further and we went to several businesses to ask if we could place a recycling can at their site. Our community responded so well. The Harvest Park bowling alley, the Little Gym and Chapala’s Mexican Restaurant save recycling for Noah on a weekly basis. The chef at Chapala’s gave Noah some tip money and a worker at the bowling alley actually approached Noah with a personal check for $20 to help him out further. It was time to take it up one more notch to try to make our summer goal. Noah wanted to take on the CornFest. We were told that City probably wouldn’t let us collect recycling at the CornFest, but Noah wanted to go ask anyway. Mr. Harry York and the folks at the Chamber of Commerce were extremely kind and really wanted to help—so we left the Chamber with the permission to take on the CornFest, extreme gratitude and excitement and a lump in our throats thinking we may have bitten off more that we could chew! The CornFest was a huge success! We invited another family who has two children in the Adams band (Michael and Steven Dutcher) to help us. They took the night shift and we took the day shift. Once again the awesome Community of Brentwood stepped in to help. Orchard Supply Hardware donated 20 recycle cans and U-Haul donated a large trailer to store all the bags and bags of recycling. Both the Dutcher and the Pena family worked the CornFest for three days digging in trash to collect a total of over $500 worth of recycling! We were very proud of our kids because most of that recycling would have ended up in a landfill if they didn’t diligently dig through the trash to save it. We are so very grateful to everyone for helping Noah out with his summer project. Between recycling, dog-sitting, mowing lawns, and the random acts of kindness from mere strangers, Noah was able to meet his goal of earning the $900 before school began at the end of July. This whole experience was very rewarding. It taught our children so many things. One, God helps those who help themselves. Two, there isn’t a money tree in the backyard...but, with hard work and the help of an amazing community you can earn what you need and help the environment at the same time!

Employer Can Establish Cap on Earned Vacation Time We want to limit the number of vacation hours an employee may roll over to the next year to 40 hours, but isn’t there a rule about capping vacation at one-and-one-half times an employee’s accrual rate? We plan to cash out any unused hours that exceed 40 hours.

Barbara Wilber Labor Law Consultant

An employer may implement a cash-out policy and limit the number of hours that can be rolled over into the next year as long as the employee uses or is paid for all earned vacation or paid time off (PTO). As well, the employer may establish a cap on earned vacation that allows a reasonable time to use any earned vacation.

The one-and-one-half-times accrual is a concept associated with the reasonable cap, not the cash-out and rollover policy. These are two completely different methods that may be used to control vacation accumulation. California Policy California does not require employers to provide vacation leave to their employees. Once a policy is established, however, certain rules apply. Specifically, vacation vests as it is earned, and a “use-it-or-lose-it” policy, in which employees lose earned vacation that is not taken by a specific time, is prohibited (except for a limited opt-out provision applying to collective bargaining agreements and vacation plans subject to the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act). Once vacation is earned, it cannot be forfeited, but a cap may be placed limiting the amount of vacation which may accrue. Any policy instituting a cap on accrued vacation must provide a reasonable time in which to use alreadyearned vacation. In the interest of meeting the “reasonable cap” criteria, employers cap accrual at one-and-one-half or two times the annual earning rate. For example, if the employee earns 40 hours of vacation each year, the employer may cap the total amount of vacation that can be earned at 60 hours. In using this method, employers must ensure that employees may use their vacation time as it is earned. If employers do not allow employees to take vacation before they reach the cap, the cap would not be considered reasonable. Cash-Out Another alternative is to pay or “cash out” earned vacation, either each year or as an employee option. Some employers cash out vacation each year and allow only a certain number of hours to be rolled over into the next year. In this instance, a one-and-one-half limit on the number of hours being rolled over does not apply because the employee receives payment for any vacation in excess of the rollover hours and earned vacation is not forfeited Both methods are legal alternatives to a “use-it-or-lose-it” policy and effectively control the accumulation of vacation hours. When instituting a program, recognize the differences and develop a policy that best meets your needs. The Labor Law Helpline is a service to California Chamber of Commerce preferred and executive members.
