As a property manager, you have an important responsibility. Building tenants and owners all rely on you to keep the property safe, orderly and functioning. However, there are also many hazards relating to your property management duties, including dealing with unruly people, performing a wide variety of repairs and tasks and facing countless unknown risks on each property.

10-August-2017 – Holmdel, NJ —“Once again JGS Insurance has been recognized by a national publication! Recently in the August 7th issue of Insurance Journal, the National Property and Casualty Magazine, JGS was named in the Top 100 Property and Casualty Insurance Agencies in America. Upon closer review of the list, this honor shows JGS Insurance as currently the Largest Independently Owned Insurance Broker in New Jersey. The two other NJ brokers listed ahead of JGS have either recently been acquired by another company, or are a subsidiary of a privately held company. We continue to focus on our own growth and success so that we can remain an independent voice in the wave of mergers in the insurance space,” says Vincent Hager, President of JGS Insurance.

There is some confusion by employers and employees about whether the Employer Mandate to offer coverage and the Individual Mandate to have qualified medical coverage still applies.

The IRS clarified that both the individual and employer mandates continue to apply.

President Trump’s executive order issued on January 20, 2017 intended “to minimize the unwarranted economic and regulatory burdens” of the ACA until the law can be repealed and eventually replaced. It did not change the law.

Companies in the food industry would certainly agree that producing safe products is of paramount importance. How can you make money if you are making your customers ill? Whether it is a hit to a brand’s reputation or a significant drop in sales, you would think businesses would not need more incentives to do the right thing.

Due to raise in foodborne illnesses and product recalls, President Obama signed into law the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) in 2011. It aims to ensure the US food supply is safe by shifting the focus from responding to contamination to preventing it. FSMA were finalized in 2015 and 2016. These new regulations on food safety carry criminal penalties.

In an effort to keep our clients informed of important issues in a timely manner, JGS Insurance held a seminar — The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) “Bites” — in March of this year to inform companies in the food industry what they need to know to protect themselves. The seminar touched on various FSMA-related topics, including the following:

Criminalization of foodborne illness – What can you do to protect your company?

Strategic risk transfer – What is an insurance policy after all?

Product liability and recall claims – Do you know what to do if it happens to your company?
