AWARDS & AWARENESS

6Beds’ ARF and RCFE Awards Night Gala is a glowing beacon of 6Beds’ unifying force and our growing political influence as care home operators in a heavily regulated industry that is on the brink of exponential growth.

It is our night to celebrate and bring community and political awareness to the important work we do — caring for California’s frail elderly, adults with developmental disabilities and those with mental illness.

It is a profession that we take great pride in, make a living from and whose relevance and community impact grow bigger with each passing year. Yet to many in our communities, law makers and politicians, we remain invisible and underappreciated for the passion and commitment we continue to pour — caring for our residents and our clients.

On August 25, 2018, 6Beds will recognize those whose contributions to this industry have spanned decades of dedicated service. In so doing, not only do we recognize the individuals and families who have given so much of their time and talents, but we also underscore and highlight the significance of our growing social and economic impact, as well as political influence in the communities we serve.

Please attend and support yet another milestone event for our beloved organization and industry.

Jun 6 – 6Beds FREE Intro to Labor Compliance Workshop for ARF & RCFE

On June 6, 6Beds will present Intro to Labor Compliance Workshop for ARF & RCFE — with emphasis on how to comply with live-ins.

This workshop is FREE/OPEN to all operators.


Intro to Labor Compliance Workshop

June 6, 2018
9 AM – 11 AM
Rancho Cordova City Hall
2729 Prospect Park Drive • Rancho Cordova • CA 95670

Despite having hosted several joint DOL/DLSE trainings, we understand that there are still many ARF & RCFE operators trying to grasp the labor laws for residential care. Many are uncertain of how to apply these labor laws to their caregivers and/or are weary of their increasing labor costs.

This time, 6Beds will present this labor training with an intuitive and narrative approach by beginning with what matters most to many care home operators — how to comply with live-ins.

We will work through this topic until everyone understands the nuance of how to comply with live-ins, as well as their important role to care and supervision compliance and the significant savings they bring to your labor cost. From there, we will cover the other areas of federal and state labor laws that regulate caregivers.

We will cover the following topics:

  • Live-ins
  • Exempt vs Non-exempt
  • Workday & Workweek
  • Overtime
  • Bi-Weekly Pay Period vs Bi-Monthly Pay Period
  • Fixed Salary vs Hourly Wage
  • Hourly Rate vs Regular Rate
  • Rest Breaks and (On-Duty) Meal Breaks
  • Split-shift
  • Paid Sick Leave
  • Travel Time
  • Meals and Lodging Credit
  • Record Keeping
  • Timesheet

Understanding labor compliance for care homes is a complex and often arduous undertaking. There’s just a lot to know! Yet as operators, it is paramount that you understand and apply these laws to help you legally operate and protect your care homes. Failure to comply can be financially disastrous and potentially life altering for both you and your business.


DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU:


On the flipside, there are many of you out there, who  out of fear of a labor audit or private lawsuit overcompensate with redundant staffing and overtime, as well as employing only live-outs. This too can lead to potential facility closures as it leads to unnecessary increased labor costs, which ultimately drain your bottom line.

When you understand the labor laws and are able to apply them correctly with confidence to your facilities, three things will happen:

  1. You will exponentially reduce your exposure to liabilities arising from thousands to millions of dollars of public and private lawsuits;
  2. You will understand the baseline cost to operate your care home and thereby help you implement optimal, compliant staffing models that can save you hundreds to millions of dollars over the long life of your care homes; and
  3. You will standardize this industry’s caregiver hiring and employment practices by legally classifying them as either a 24-hour worker, permanent or extended live-in, reliever or a live-out. This in turn will (1) help lift and ease the costly labor audits and private lawsuits pervasive in our industry today and (2) help ease the rising hourly wages of caregivers as we adhere to the boundaries set forth by the labor laws — standardizing employment expectations and benefits.

If you are unsure of your implementation of the labor laws for your caregivers, we strongly encourage you to attend this workshop.

This workshop is FREE/OPEN to all operators.

  2. Advance Labor Compliance and Cost Optimization Workshop
    12 PM  – 2 PM

    (THIS ADVANCE WORKSHOP IS FREE/OPEN TO 6BEDS MEMBERS ONLY.)

    This advance workshop will analyze a fictitious care home’s staffing model for labor compliance violations as well as delivery of care and cost optimization.

    This workshop will empower you to assess your own facility’s state of labor compliance and help you develop optimized and compliant staffing models for your facility — helping you to save hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars, the right way, over the long life of your care home(s).

    The goals of this advance workshop are to:

    1. Empower you to analyze your own facility’s labor compliance violations,
    2. Give you insights as to how to restructure your current staffing model to achieve labor compliance,
    3. Teach you how to determine your own facility’s baseline labor cost as the first step towards delivery of care and cost optimization,
    4. Provide you with the building blocks to help you develop staffing models that optimize both delivery of care and labor cost, while complying with labor, and
    5. Provide you with insights as to how you can implement these labor compliance and cost-savings solutions in your facility.

April 11 – Attend First Ever 6Beds Labor Workshop for ARF & RCFE

For the first time ever, 6Beds will host a Labor Workshop for ARF and RCFE that builds upon the DOL/DLSE labor training, where we will delve into the practical daily applications of the labor laws that regulate our industry.

April 11, 2018 - 6Beds DOL/DLSE Labor Training for ARF and RCFE

If you have attended at least one of our DOL/DLSE labor training in the past and are still struggling to understand how to comply with federal and state labor laws and/or you’ve purchased the Wage and Hour Guide but still don’t know where or how to begin, do not miss this workshop.

We will host this workshop during 6Beds’ 4th Annual Advocacy Day, on April 11th at the California Chamber of Commerce in Sacramento, at the Esquire Plaza.

Registration is from 7AM – 8AM. Main event is from 8AM – 5PM.

In this workshop, we will analyze a typical work week schedule and timesheets for compliance violations and costs; then we will apply compliance solutions and optimizations. Our goal is to help you better understand the labor laws presented during the DOL/DLSE labor training session as they apply to everyday operations — especially when employing live-ins to help minimize labor costs and optimize delivery of care, per regulations.

This workshop is for current 6Beds members only. Reserve your seats today as space is limited to our venue’s 140 seating capacity. More than half of the seats for this session have already been reserved.

Please note, if you have already reserved your seats for the April 11 Advocacy Day, your seats are already reserved and you do not need to reserve your seats again.
