In this special episode, Ed and Scott tone things down a bit but still bring their “A” game, and plenty of hand sanitizer, to take on a serious topic … the new coronavirus, or COVID-19. Joined by experts Pam Popp, President of Lockton Retirement Services, and Stacie Engelmann, Senior HR Consultant, this episode tackles some of the key elements of employee benefits plans and HR policies that COVID-19 is sure to trigger questions about.
NOTE: After recording this episode, and shortly before its release, the U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation that would expand paid sick and family leave to employees of governmental entities, and private employers with fewer than 500 employees. The bill would also require health plans (including self-insured plans) to cover coronavirus testing at no cost. The Senate is working on passing the measure this week.
