COVID-19: Employee Benefits Return to Work Checklist
The health and economic conditions created by the COVID-19 crisis have caused unprecedented disruption in the workforce. Now, as some employers begin to bring employees back to work, they are faced with a new set of challenges. Graham understands the challenges this imposes on your organization as you begin to think about employees returning to work after temporary layoffs, leaves of absence, and furloughs. To help support you with this, we have provided the following two checklists:
- The Human Resource Employee Return to Work Checklist is designed to provide guidance on Employee Benefits protocols to consider when preparing for employees to return to work. It’s divided into two parts: Part 1 covers important employment law and Human Resources issues, and Part 2 focuses on Employee Benefits concerns.
- The COVID-19 Employee Benefits Related Checklist is a summary of legislative and regulatory changes related to COVID-19 that affect employer sponsored health and welfare benefits. It also includes some temporary actions employers and carriers have taken in response to business and coverage needs during this public health emergency.
