The COBRA provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 implement a governmental subsidy of COBRA premiums for involuntarily terminated employees. The new law has an immediate and substantial impact on employers' obligations for COBRA. Please join a panel of Seyfarth's employee benefits attorneys for a timely program about the new law and the challenges and immediate impact it will have on employers, including: 1) how the subsidy works, 2) who is eligible, 3) what actions steps are required for implementation. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session so you will be able to pose your questions and hear concerns raised by others employers.
Dial-in information and presentation materials for the teleconference will be distributed to registered participants one day prior to the event.
Who Should Attend:
Attorneys, Human Resource Professionals, and Compensation and Benefits Personnel, responsible for health and severance plan design and administration.
