    Recorded On: 10/09/2014

    Find out how to focus on the key drivers of your club's financial performance.

    Club financial statements often contain voluminous amounts of information that can bury the readers in detailed data. Frequently this leads to “paralysis by analysis,” or worse, can cause management and boards to waste time focusing on historical data that does not explain how the operation fundamentally performed or how it can be changed.

    This presentation will discuss how to focus on the key drivers of your club's financial performance. It will discuss the linkages that you must have between your financial budget and your strategic operating plan and will review a selection of the key data points that clubs must capture, report and explain if they are to succeed and deliver on their mission and vision statements.

  • Classifying Independent Contractors

    Recorded On: 07/17/2014

    Review best practices for classifying independent contractors at clubs, learn from the tests used by courts and agencies, the attacks upon alleged misclassification and ‘wage theft,’ as well as steps management can take to limit potential exposure.

    This webinar will cover an area of growing concern for clubs, and other employers, across the country. Do you consider your caddies to be independent contractors? Your club's pro? Other service providers?

    Employment lawyers, public agencies, taxing authorities and the courts have taken an aggressive view that individuals classified as independent contractors are, instead, employees. As many employers have discovered, the rule of law may run contrary to what is agreed to, and memorialized, in written agreements. The issue affects wage and hour, individual employment rights, worker's compensation proceedings, union organizing, and compliance with tax laws. We will discuss the tests used by courts and agencies, the attacks upon alleged misclassification and 'wage theft,' as well as steps management can take to limit potential exposure.
