As we welcome September, the Alper Team continues to prep for open enrollment season. This month's Benefits Focus features a resource that explains how COVID-19 may affect your 2021 benefits plan. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is front and center as we review revised penalty amounts for 2021. We also explain how the ACA's constitutionality will come under review before the Supreme Court in November.
Our fourth article examines case studies of wrongful death lawsuits brought against employers after an employee dies from COVID-19. It also provides some resources on how to avoid such lawsuits. The Live Well, Work Well feature has a great article on choosing an effective hand sanitizer now that so many new options have hit stores.
Remember, the Alper Employee Benefits Team is here to answer any questions you have regarding this information or employee benefits in general.
