The employee actually conducts the vehicle inspections for the smog check. She handles and completes the tests, customers, and transactions. I do mostly back-end things like accounting, taxes, marketing and will pitch in to help handle customers when busy. She is paid $39,600.
Can you clarify this line of the administrative regulation:
"Who performs, under only general supervision, work along specialized or technical lines requiring special training, experience, or knowledge, or"
Operationally, the business requires a level 2 inspector and is needed to be open and make independent decisions based on her specialized training and special license to make those decisions. Since I do not have this license and cannot make any judgement calls on inspections wouldn't this qualify her as the only authority on making these administrative/management decisions?
