Join us for a discussion of the legislative changes and practical considerations related to employee benefits during the COVID-19 crisis.

We will discuss legislative changes to retirement and health benefits, as well as executive compensation.

In addition, we’ll address some of the most common employer concerns, such as:

  • Mid-year cessation of employer retirement contributions
  • Impact of furloughs on retirement plan eligibility, vesting, and loan repayments
  • Retirement plan “partial termination” due to furlough and employment termination
  • Continued health benefits for furloughed employees
  • Permitted changes in cafeteria plan elections due to work at home
  • Reporting requirements if an employee tests positive for COVID-19
