About the Event

On March 11, 2021, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA). The Act is a $1.9 trillion legislative package that includes pandemic relief for individuals and families. The Act contains several provisions regarding funding for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, stimulus checks, unemployment benefits, the child tax credit, tax credits for paid sick leave and family and medical leave, the Paycheck Protection Program, grants to state educational agencies, low-income family assistance, and more. This webinar will review the provisions of ARPA that affect Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) coverage premiums and what coverage can be offered, dependent care flexible spending arrangements (DCAPs), and tax credits for employers that provide Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) leave to their employees.

This webinar will:

  • Describe      the new COBRA premium assistance requirement, including which employees      are eligible for assistance, when the assistance expires, notice      requirements, and tax credits available for employers
  • Describe      the increase in the maximum amount that can be excluded from an employee’s      income under a DCAP
  • Provide      an overview of emergency paid sick leave and emergency family and medical leave      under the FFCRA
  • Describe      the changes ARPA has made to emergency paid sick leave and emergency      family and medical leave and the tax credits available to employers

This 60-minute intermediate level webinar will help employers understand the new COBRA premium assistance requirements, permitted increase in the DCAP limit, changes to FFCRA leave, and continued tax credits under ARPA.

The presentation will be posted on the UBA Website the afternoon before the webinar.
