May 19, 2014, 15:21 ET from RouteOne LLC

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., May 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RouteOne will discuss discretionary dealer markup practices during a complimentary compliance webinar on Wednesday, May 21 at 12:00 PM EDT. Entitled "A Dealer's Guide to the Dealer Pricing Risk Control Program," the webinar is a must-see for dealers interested in managing fair lending compliance issues as outlined by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Dealers may register for the free webinar at

RouteOne Staff Attorney Joseph Karam and National Business Development Manager Jesse Pappas will guide dealers through RouteOne's Dealer Pricing Risk Control Program, which is designed to help dealerships manage fair lending compliance through two main features:  

  • The dealer established 'standard' markup rate that it will apply to all transactions unless an established exception exists for a lower rate; and
  • The dealer documents the reason for any exception, using the Dealer Participation Exception Form, accessible through the RouteOne platform.

"As compliance requirements increase, RouteOne is committed to assisting dealers in better understanding the regulatory environment," said Mike Jurecki, RouteOne CEO. "We know that there are increasing concerns surrounding fair lending and pricing, which is why we're offering this webinar and free tools."

Karam and Pappas will also provide an overview of the current legal landscape, and the role of the DOJ and the CFPB in shaping the future of the regulatory environment. The webinar will be recorded and available for review following the live session on May 21. Dealers may contact RouteOne at 866.768.8301 for more information, or visit
