About This Course:
How do workers' compensation, FMLA, disability, and COBRA laws work - together, independently or concurrently? What can run together? What cannot? When can we cancel the health plan, for what reason and is it a COBRA qualifying event?

Pull all of these together to explain the employer's liability. When can coverage be cancelled? What laws protect employee benefits?
