Many employers struggle with how to handle health and welfare benefit eligibility and employee contributions during employee leaves of absence. We encourage employers to proactively think about their leave policies and how they will handle benefits and payments while an employee is out on leave. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of the compliance requirements for handling health and welfare benefits during different types of leave – protected, unprotected, paid, and unpaid – along with some guidelines for employers to follow in developing and administering their leave policies.
