WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: As companies began to bring employees back to work, many health and welfare plan compliance issues will arise that will significantly impact the benefits provided to returning employees.This program will address what needs to be done to avoid penalties and/or lawsuits.


As companies began to slowly open their doors and bring employees back to work, many health and welfare plan compliance issues will arise that will significantly impact the benefits provided to returning employees.  Failure to properly plan and address these issues can leave the unsuspecting employer/plan sponsor subject to significant IRS and DOL penalties and possibly even damages from lawsuits filed by aggrieved employees.

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

  • Identify election changes that employees must and/or may be allowed to make upon returning to work;
  • Determine whether you or your health plan must pay for COVID 19 return to work screenings;
  • Identify the health plan mandates applicable to COVID 19 and when they will end;
  • Determine the impact of furlough or leave on benefit plan eligibility of returning employees—especially under the ACA’s Employer Shared Responsibility rules;
  • Identify the impact that the Department of Labor and IRS extended time frames will have on benefits.
