Recognizing and Addressing COBRA
|Date / Time:
COBRA continuation affects almost all employers with at least 20 employees. State continuation can impact employers with as few as 2 employees.
There is a high amount of liability in this area that can result in penalties from the Internal Revenue Service, Department of Labor, court costs, lawyer expenses, and time and effort dealing with the state's insurance commissioner.
This webinar helps the individuals responsible for handling the continuation of health benefits understand the rules and regulations surrounding these complex requirements of COBRA.
We will provide the rules of when a triggering event takes place, how long the employer is responsible for COBRA and the penalties for failing to comply. Failing to provide the Initial Notice, sometimes called the General Notice, and failure to provide a timely Event Notice have cost employers thousands of dollars in courts all across the country.
Don't be a statistic - learn about your responsibilities.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
