Post-Roe – What Employers Should Know

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision last month to overturn Roe v. Wade presents new challenges for employee benefit plans as well as a heightened focus on employment practices covering a host of issues. 

In this timely 1-hour webinar, attendees will hear from Employee Benefits/ERISA Attorney, Kelly Haab Tallitsch, as she discusses the decision’s impact on employer self-funded as well as fully insured medical plans. Kelly will also discuss the decision’s potential impact on other benefit plans and she will also examine state law prohibitions that could impact what employers offer or implement moving forward. Additionally, Labor & Employment Attorney, Jeff Risch, will identify and discuss other issues that will present challenges for employers going forward, including, harassment/discrimination pitfalls and misc. leave law mandates that must be carefully balanced in the weeks and months ahead.
