Beginning in 2021 (for tax year 2020), employers with self-funded plans must submit a copy of federal Form 1095-B or 1095-C (depending on the employer’s size) to the California Franchise Tax Board by March 31 of the year following the calendar year to which the return relates. The appropriate form must be provided to the employee by January 31 of the same year.

A recent law creates a rebuttable presumption, in certain circumstances, that an employee’s illness or death related to COVID-19 is an occupational injury that qualifies for workers’ compensation benefits.

Senate Bill 1383 establishes that employers with as few as five employees must provide family and medical rights to their employees. It also expands the covered reasons for protected leave and the family members employees may take leave to care for under the law.

Effective January 1, 2021, employers in California that have 100 or more employees and are required to file an annual EEO-1 under federal law must submit to the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) a pay data report covering the prior calendar year (CA Gov. Code Sec. 12999). The report must be submitted by March 31 each year, beginning in 2021.

These are just a few of the upcoming changes in the state of California. Join this informative webinar with Cathleen Yonahara to learn more and prepare for a successful start to the new year!

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Prepare and plan for 2021
  • Understand what new requirements are coming in 2021
  • Implement best practices for compliance and reporting efficiency
  • Have tools to deal with COVID
