Elite Express

Program Details:

Young Living Essential Oils, LC, located at Thanksgiving Point Business Park, 3125 Executive Parkway, Lehi, UT 84043 (“Young Living”) is launching the ELITE EXPRESS program on March 1, 2016 at 12 a.m., MT (“Program Initiation Date”). Members who achieve the rank of Star are eligible to participate in the ELITE EXPRESS program. The ELITE EXPRESS program consists of four reward tracks and one bonus track that offers an added incentive for members to achieve and maintain leadership ranks within the Young Living Compensation Plan, as outlined in that plan. Members are provided with rewards and recognition for achieving specified leadership ranks within a specifically defined amount of time from a prequalifying rank.
The ELITE EXPRESS program is an additional incentive intended to motivate and reward elite, high-performing members. While all members are encouraged to participate, it is important to remember that it is not intended to replace other qualifications or incentives that are offered to Young Living’s member base, including compensation and bonuses offered under the Young Living Compensation Plan. However, as of the Program Initiation Date, ELITE EXPRESS will replace the Si6 program existing prior the Program Initiation Date. Members who qualify for the rank of Executive by February 29, 2016, will be grandfathered into the existing Si6 program for that Silver track of the ELITE EXPRESS program as described below.

Program Rules:

1. A participating member must achieve a prequalifying rank for each specific reward track (described below) to initiate the beginning of a qualification period.

2. The member must maintain the prequalifying rank throughout the qualification period.

3. The member must achieve the qualifying rank for each reward track within the qualifying period specified for each reward.

4. The qualification period for each reward track begins on the 1st of the month following a member’s first time achievement of the prequalifying rank.

All causes of action arising out of or in connection with the ELITE EXPRESS program or any reward awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action.

Other Rules and Regulations:

Each reward recipient will be responsible for all applicable taxes on his or her reward, whether or not the reward is used, unless he or she refuses to accept a reward at the time it is presented. Where applicable, the recipient will have the fair market value of the accepted reward reported on an applicable tax for (e.g., a Form 1099-MISC in the USA or Form T4A in Canada). If aspects of a reward change outside the control of Young Living, or if, for any reason, all or any portion of a reward is or becomes unavailable, Young Living will not be liable or responsible for any such changes and reserves the right to substitute a reward of equivalent or greater value at Young Living's sole and absolute discretion. No transfer of a reward to a third party is permitted. No cash substitutions will be offered for non-cash rewards. By accepting a reward, the recipient agrees that Young Living shall not be liable for any injuries, damages, or losses of any kind resulting from or in connection with the awarding, acceptance, possession, or use of a reward or any aspects or parts thereof.

Young Living will be the final arbiter of all rule interpretations and qualification determinations and such decisions will be final. Where applicable, any qualification subsidy will be reported as income on the recipients’ annual 1099 form.
