These responsibilities include risk management, employment law compliance, payroll and taxes, human resource guidance, and funeral-home-specific Federal Trade Commission and state regulatory compliant marketing materials.

*Thanexus, Inc. is not an insurance agency and is not qualified to solicit, effectuate, or bind insurance coverages.
