Even if you have only one employee, an employee handbook documents your compliance with the complex laws governing employment practices.  It will also be your protection from claims brought by an employee or former employee.


While you may have every intention of complying with the FTC Funeral Rule, you may be using price lists that are not compliant with the law.  Don’t risk a $16,000 fine.  Let IFDA confidentially review your GPL, Casket Price List, Outer Burial Container Price List, and Statement of Funeral Goods and Services Selected for compliance.  A guide to FTC compliance is also included.

GPL CREATION (includes FTC Review)

Your General Price List should reflect the quality of your firm.  Let IFDA produce it.  It will be in color, concise, easy to read and guaranteed to be in compliance. No minimum required – only print as many as you need ($1.00/piece plus shipping/handling).
