KYSSA Needs Your Help
KYSSA thanks State Rep. Kevin Bratcher (R-Jefferson Co.) for sponsoring House Bill 98. HB98 would allow for online advertising instead of newspaper advertising of lien sales. This important legislation would allow you to advertise in a cost-effective manner rather than wasting money on newspaper ads that few read.
Now we need your help!
Please email (good) or call (better) the state representative where you live and where you work, and ask him or her to co-sponsor HB98.
You can find your state representative’s name and contact information by searching here.
Please email Joe Doherty with any questions.

New Leave Law to Impact Storage Industry, Effective April 1
As reported last week, the new federal leave law takes effect on April 1. Employers must provide notice to their employees immediately if they have not done so already. The notice can be found here.
SSA’s updated FAQs can be found here. The updated FAQs answer questions on issues such as the posting requirements for the notice and the limited exemption available to employers with fewer than 50 employees.
The Department of Labor’s complete FAQs can be found here.
Employers are strongly encouraged to discuss the new law with their legal counsel. Please email Joe Doherty, email@example.com, with any questions.
The Kentucky Self Storage Association, together with the national Self Storage Association, continues to work on a number of issues to protect and improve your regulatory arena. In 2014 the KYSSA made major revisions to lien law provisions consistent with recent improvements in other states.
