Salon compensation systems can get a bit confusing. Nothing is more important than knowing your rights and tracking your income to ensure you’re being paid every penny of what you’re owed for the work that you do. The Salon Employee Suitcase makes income tracking simple, no matter how complicated your employer’s compensation structure is. The current version includes the following valuable resources:
- The Income Tracker Spreadsheet for Commission-Based Salon Professionals: a 4 page spreadsheet for tracking your hours, service sales, retail sales, tips, and expenses. It allows you to account for credit card fees on tips and backbar charges on a flat percentage basis, an individual percentage basis, or a flat dollar amount basis. At the end of each pay period, The Income Tracker automatically determines whether your commissions exceeded your prevailing wage/overtime pay or not, and tells you exactly what your gross wages line should look like on your pay stub. Each sheet is designed to be printer-friendly, so you can save your sheets from each pay period.
- A 7-page guide to the Income Tracker Spreadsheet that not only walks you through the process of using the spreadsheet, but also explains the laws in terms you can understand. Unsure about whether or not your employer is legally deducting credit card fees or backbar charges? You won’t be after you read this guide.
- A 7-page Wage Theft Action Plan with letter templates—an extremely useful resource I hope you never have to use. The Wage Theft Action Plan explains wage theft, tells you how to find the laws relevant to your area, and provides 4 Wage Discrepancy Letter templates for every common wage theft scenario that takes place in salons, along with an Action Plan that will walk you through the process of filing a wage complaint against an employer who refuses to pay back the wages they stole from you.
- A bonus 12-page article about sexual harassment in the workplace, including scripts for confronting clients, coworkers, and employers, and information about your legal rights when faced with sexual harassment in the salon.
Even the most diligent and organized salon owners make payroll mistakes. (If it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone.) Get The Salon Employee Suitcase and take charge of your own income!
After clicking the Buy Now button, you’ll be directed to Paypal. Once your payment is complete, you can expect two email receipts—one from Paypal confirming your payment, and one from me with a unique download link and instructions for opening the zipped folder. This unique link will expire after 3 hours and spam filters are very aggressive, so if you don’t receive your receipt with your download link at all, don’t sweat it! Just click the Your Account button in the menu bar. You’ll be able to access your downloadable files from there whenever you like.
COMPATIBILITY: The Salon Employee Suitcase is only compatible with Microsoft Excel and Excel for Mac. I cannot guarantee compatibility with any other program.
DOWNLOADING ON MOBILE DEVICES: This file is a ZIP file (compressed). The contents will need to be extracted after download in order for them to be accessible. If your phone/tablet does not have this capability, there are apps you can download to extract contents from zip files, but for best results, download the files on a laptop or desktop computer, extract the files there, and then send them to your mobile devices if you like to read on the go. (If you attempt to access a zip folder on a mobile device that doesn’t know what a zip folder is, you’ll get a screen full of random jibberish, which is pretty in its own way, but definitely not useful.)
NO RETURNS OR REFUNDS
Downloadable items aren’t eligible for returns or refunds since there’s no way to verify deletion of a downloadable file. All sales are final. If you have any pre-purchase questions that aren’t answered in the item listing, email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
