                                   ASC-CA Chapter 20 MISSION STATEMENT
     “To promote professionalism throughout our industry by upholding our state code of ethics and sharing our successes and
      failures with our members and future members” . “To elevate and unite automotive professionals and give them a voice”.

Dawn of a New Day and New Year 2012. Chapter 20, Welcome to 2012. I hope all of you had Joyous Holidays and a
Happy New Year. I hope the Holiday season allowed you to share time and enjoy your families, friends and great food,
(some gifts and football too).
2011 - What a year we had in Chapter 20. We were successful in having great meetings with awesome speakers, had a
successful vendor fair / membership drive and started a scholarship program. We are so appreciative of all of our mem-
bers, associate members and benefit providers. With your Board of Directors, new growth of members, the retention
of current members and the benefits that ASCCA provides for us, 2012 is on target to be more successful than 2011.
                                                I am so honored to be your President of Chapter 20 in 2012. We have
                                                assembled a great Board to serve you, the members, our most valuable
                                                resource. Our 2012 Board of Directors Roster is listed in the newsletter.
                                                A new addition for 2012 is our Directors at Large. I am so pleased that
                                                Felix Boston, Sergio Garcia, Hans Hiller, Matt Patterson and Hans
                                                Rudolph have joined your Board as Directors at Large. I am so excited to
                                                be working with each of them during the year.
                                                Chapter 20 has scheduled another great year of speakers for the 2012 year.
                                                January's meeting is no exception. Maylan Newton of ESi is going to speak
                                                to us on the topic, “Confident Selling - I Think I Can". I am sure after
                                                attending the meeting your outlook will change to "I Know I Can".
    At the January Board meeting.               Maylan always provides us with the tools necessary to make a change in
    Linda Beil is the photographer ...          our businesses, the very next day.
With the list of the speakers scheduled during the year, our Vendor Fair, Training Classes and other ideas that the Board
is looking at, 2012 is going to "ROCK". What we are asking for is your continued support and attendance in the
Chapter. With the Strength of our Board, the Strength of our Membership and the Strength of the ASCCA Association
we have all of the tools to stay successful in our Businesses. Just with our membership alone, there are over a 1000
years of experience in auto repair.
With all of the upcoming changes in BAR, New Law changes for 2012, it would be very difficult for us as individuals to
keep up with them. This is why it is so important to stay informed by attending the chapter meetings and reading the
Chapter 20 and ASCCA newsletters. If you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, Please don't hesitate to contact
one of Board Members. We will use our diligence to answer or obtain an answer for you.
Thank You, See You January 19........Jeff Stich.....2012 Chapter 20 President

            New California Laws for 2012, Courtesy Jack Molodanof, ASCCA Attorney
       Every year, hundreds of new laws are enacted that may impact automotive repair shops. Below is a summary of some
key measures that take effect January 1, 2012.
         Unlicensed Cite and Fine for Automotive Repair Shops. BAR will begin issuing citations and fines against persons
who are performing services, which a license is required by the automotive repair act. This law will target the underground
economy, however it will also apply to registered automotive repair dealers who are diagnosing or repairing failed smog repairs
without being licensed as a smog check facility. Remember, that if a customer states that they have failed smog, a repair shop
cannot legally diagnose or repair the vehicle unless licensed as a smog check station. (BAR Regulations)
          Failure to replace Airbag. This new law increases the fine ($2,500 to $5,000) and maintains the misdemeanor penalty
for auto repair shops that charge for a replacement airbag but fail to restore as provided for in the written repair estimate. (See SB
         Misclassification of employees as Independent Contractors. This new law prohibits “willful misclassification” of
individuals as independent contractors to avoid properly classifying workers as employees. The new law imposes fines of up to
$25,000 per violation. (See SB 459)
         New Employer Disclosure Requirements. The new law defines disclosure requirements for employers. Starting
January 1, 2012 employers must provide employees the following information: A) the rate or rates of pay and the basis for pay (i.e.
whether the employee will be paid by the hour, shift, day, week, salary, piece, commission, or otherwise). The rate information
must also include overtime rates. B) Any allowances claimed as part of the minimum wage, including meal or lodging allowances;
C) The regular payday designated by the employer; D) The name of the employer, including any “doing business as” names used
by the employer; E) The physical address of the employer’s main office or principal place of business. The mailing address must
also be provided if it differs from the principal physical address; F) The telephone number of the employer; G) The name, address
and the telephone number of the employers workers compensation insurance carrier; H) any other information the Labor
Commissioner deems material and necessary. (See AB 469).
            An employer’s duty to disclose the above information continues after hiring the employee. When any of the information
listed above changes, employers must notify employees in writing within seven business days. An employer may satisfy this notice
if all the changes are reflected on a timely itemized wage statement (pay stub). An employer may also satisfy the obligation to
update its required information if the changes are provided in another writing required by law. (See AB 469)
         Employers Maintaining Payroll Records. The new law extended the time an Employer is required to maintain payroll
records from two to three years. (See AB 469)
       Commission Agreements. This new law requires all employers by January 2013 to provide written contracts to
employees who are paid by a commission. (AB 1396)
        Consumer Credit Reports. Prohibits use of consumer credit reports for employment unless the position of the person
for whom the report is sought falls into a specified exemption. (See AB 22)
         Small Claims Court Increase. This new law increases the monetary jurisdiction amount in Small Claims Court from
$7,500 to $10, 000 for a natural person. Businesses still limited to $5,000. (See SB 221)
         Career Technical Education. The new law provides that students have the option to take a career technical education
course for purposes of fulfilling high school graduation requirements. (See AB 1330)
        Pregnancy Disability Leave. Requires employers with five or more employees to continue to maintain and pay for health
coverage under a group health plan for an eligible female employee who takes Pregnancy Disability Leave up to a maximum of
four months in a 12-month period. The benefits are at the same level and under the same conditions as if the employee had
continued working during the leave period. (See SB 299)
         Genetic Information. Amends the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) to state that employers are prohibited from
discriminating against employees on the basis of genetic information. Information includes individual genetic test, genetic tests of
family members of the individual and manifestation of a disease or disorder in family members of the individual. (See SB 559)
          Gender Expression. Amends the Fair Employment and Housing Act to further define “gender” to include both gender
identity and “gender expression” and to make clear that discrimination on either basis is prohibited. (See AB 887)

                        (Business Alliance for Local Living Economies), which was an early force behind the “Go Local” movement.

                        orphaned by the Aids epidemic. While she loves you all, she has never stopped missing the African continent.

                            Online Webinar Series
   1/17/2012 - Key-Off EVAP Diagnostics - 7 and 9 pm EST

  Most vehicles check for 0.020” or 0.010” leaks in the EVAP
  system now. This cannot be done while the vehicle is mov-
  ing and the fuel is sloshing in the tank. Ideal Gas Law prin-
  ciples are used to perform these small leak checks when
  the vehicle is parked and the engine is off. It often takes
  days or even weeks to set a small leak DTC.

  Join this 60 minute webinar to:
      Discover the changes vehicle manufacturers have
            made in EVAP designs
      Learn diagnostic techniques to effectively determine if
            the system is leaking now

        Be prepared to deal with small leak DTCs on a variety
            of vehicle makes
