Episode 8: Why Employee Benefits Management Matters More Than Ever

Several developments converged during the COVID-19 pandemic that make employee benefits managements and compliance more complicated for organizations. For one, there are several employer and employee related laws that went into effect in 2020. Furloughs and layoffs also increased, which provide difficulties for benefits managers.

Karen McLeese of our employee benefit regulatory affairs team explains what employers should be aware of for 2021, including:

  • 2020 law changes that could affect 2021
  • Managing the effect furloughs and layoffs have on benefits
  • The projected impact of the 2020 election on future benefits changes
