Finance Report - Annette Story reporting

Employee healthcare reimbursement
There is concern that simple reimbursement for actual expenses will have tax consequences that we
do not fully understand and have not been able find an answer. We expect that we will be told
what we should have done at some point in the future; for this reason, we will decrease the maximum
reimbursement to fund that future cost.
Motion: HAL will pay up to $350 per month for major medical health benefits to full time employees;
receipt required. Actual implementation is up to finance committee. Greg motioned and Erika seconded.
Employee Vacation for employees
Most employees currently take unpaid time off. Paid vacation days are generally considered a good
idea but there is a fear that the increased cost will be a problem. Tabled!
Investigate a new agency for employee outsourcing
Reimbursing employees for major medical health insurance is acceptable as a temporary measure;
however, the overall problem is that current agency cannot offer an affordable policy. Will be
taken up by the executive committee and placed on next month’s agenda.
Motion: Increase the returned check fee to $35.00 effective immediately. Passed.
