Not to just keep this thread going or to be a S.A., a friend and I were discussing the topic of this thread and he reminded me that under our county's new rules for 2009 I am not licensed anymore. I checked my "License" for '07 and '08 and they do indeed read "Business License", now the paper I have after paying my fees reads "Occupational Tax Fee Certificate". Just to be a S.A., the next three businesses I went into in my county I asked to see their "Business License", as they are supposed to be displayed, and sure enough they had the "Occupational Tax Fee Certificate". A phone call downtown and I learned that our county no longer issues a "License" to do business or trades. They rely on the State of Georgia to issue any License to an individual. I checked two of the other counties I hold current "Business License" in and they still do issue a Business License. No wonder everything around here is such a mess. Thanks, David
In my recent annual evaluation, I contacted our company's Human Resources Dept and asked if having a CDL license was included in my job description. I am the only one in our shop with that rating. Apparently it is not ("valid driver's license" is what is required), and I told my supervisor that I had contacted the main office and asked this question frankly looking for justification for a small raise considering the economy. "Having a job" is the philosophy for our raise this year.
We are involved at times with transporting several CDL rated vehicles because we are part of the "maintenance" division. So the answer was that since I had not objected to driving these vehicles I was the first choice from the perspective of utilizing each employee's attributes. No problem there. But, "If you aren't here, then we'll just take our chances and drive them probably illegally."
Thanks to all who have shared.
If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right. If you wouldn't put your name on it, it ain't done right!
