Employee Benefits Basics

Employers knew they provided a lot of benefits, but they forgot what many of them were or didn't know enough about them to properly guide their employees. They scrambled to re-educate themselves, while also learning the new safety and pandemic assistant guidelines that seemed to change daily.

Although the drastically reduced number of confirmed Covid-19 cases and deaths is encouraging, employers must prepare now for a potential resurgence. Ensuring you know which employee benefits you are required to provide and to who continues to be essential.
