Welcome to the Crane Agency October Wellness Newsletter.

The Live Well, Work Well newsletter is an employee newsletter that is produced monthly and covers topics like health, wellness, fitness, nutrition and personal finances. This month’s issue includes information on how to prevent backpack-related injuries, safety tips for celebrating this Halloween with your child and prevention strategies to reduce your risk of breast cancer.

You will also find attached this month’s Benefits Buzz and HR Brief.  This month’s Benefits Buzz discusses the approaching ACA reporting deadlines, the Marketplace’s “simple choice health plans” available for the 2017 enrollment period and the FLSA employer accommodation requirements for nursing mothers.  This month’s HR Brief gives an overview of calculating FMLA leave entitlement for employees who work overtime, alerts employers on forthcoming IRS ACA penalty liability letters, and also alerts employers about increased fines for Form I-9 paperwork violations.
