My goodness, has it been a month?  Sorry about that dear, readers – but as Johnny Cash alluded to in our title here; we’ve been a little busy.  And, it’s not letting up!  This week it’s off to Denver for the DMEC Annual Conference for two sessions (we’re at booth 409 stop by and say Hi!).

Be on the lookout in this blog for updates from all of the various legislative bodies as well as our takes on Adventures in Absence Management and Accommodations, but wanted to share with you some of what we’ve been doing over the past month.  Each of these webinars is available on demand with a click on the links below.

First, a session on “What we Know” as it relates to the impending rollout of both the Oregon and Colorado Paid Family and Medical Leave Plans.

Next, our July edition of “The Docket”, our quarterly webinar update on all things compliance – new leave-related legislation, EEOC and DOL activities, and those every-interesting court opinions.

And finally, and most urgent to all of you out there: a special session on the implications of the recent Supreme Court Ruling “Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization”.  The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in the Dobbs case, overruling Roe v. Wade, will have far-reaching implications for employers, employees and carriers—who face many questions about reproductive health benefits and services. Together with our special guest, Joy Napier-Joyce from Jackson Lewis, we explore:

  • Employer considerations
  • Group health plan implications
  • Travel benefit design
  • Optional travel benefits—
  • State law considerations
  • Other possible developments (congressional action, additional state laws, etc…)

Check back soon and we hope you enjoy the webinars here, but in the interim, back to the frequent flier miles!
