Recognizing and Addressing COBRA

Webinar: ID# 1016926
Recorded CD
About This Course:
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.
