There’s no doubt that over the past few weeks, COBRA has resurfaced as a focal point for many employers. That means many HR professionals and benefits specialists are spending more time on COBRA administration now than in years past…and many find themselves brushing off the dust to complete tasks they haven’t had to focus on for a while.
Our New COBRA Academy Can Help
If you’re feeling a little uncertain on your COBRA duties, we’d like to share our new COBRA Academy: a complimentary learning hub for HR professionals who administer COBRA, as well as brokers seeking to keep their clients compliant. Within, you’ll find helpful administration resources and ways to avoid common COBRA mistakes.
Side note: We know it may be tough to focus on compliance right now, but letting matters fall to the wayside or failing to follow COBRA rights notifications to the letter of the law can potentially introduce fines or civil litigation. We cover the penalties in our recent article in BenefitsPRO.
