With a new year come new changes. You may want to pull out your employee handbook or policy manual and consider revising it to meet the new requirements. We can help you with that.
As of January 1, 2019, the minimum wage in our state has increased to $11.00 per hour. Tipped employees can be paid $8 an hour, but their hourly pay including tips must meet or exceed the $11.00 minimum in Arizona.
There are very few exceptions to the Arizona minimum wage.
Kicking off 2019 with an exciting bang, Grady Gammage, Jr. was featured in the Arizona Republic with a front page op-ed piece discussing the momentum of voting and the future of water policy in Arizona. Mr. Gammage suggests that 2018 may have been the year that determines Arizona’s future!

QUESTION: WHAT ARE CREDIT PROCEDURES AND WHY DOES MY BUSINESS NEED THEM ANYWAY?
ANSWER: CREDIT PROCEDURES ARE THE REGULATIONS WHICH IMPLEMENT THE CREDIT POLICIES. WITHOUT CREDIT PROCEDURES, YOUR PEOPLE WILL NOT KNOW HOW TO MAKE YOUR WONDERFULLY THOUGHT OUT CREDIT POLICIES WORK.
Previously we discussed how to implement credit policies. The next step is to implement credit procedures which are the detailed statements which make the policies function. Credit procedures represent the daily operating instructions for the credit department to follow. In other words, the answer to “How do I do it?” is “See your procedure manual.”
Credit procedures must be understandable to everyone in the business.
On December 6, 2018, founding partner Grady Gammage, Jr. was featured on KJZZ radio to speak about water issues in Arizona with host Steve Goldstein.
The following morning in Tempe, the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute hosted an issues and answers forum called Water in Arizona: Past, Present and Future, where Grady presented an overview of water in the state.
In the radio interview Grady discussed the forum event and how to address the issues that Arizona faces when it comes to water management.
