Impacts of COVID-related legislation on employer retirement plans
Since last week’s video alert for employers, “Practical workplace implications of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act,” yet another COVID-related law was passed in Congress and signed by President Trump. Considered as “Phase 3” of Congress’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act is intended to provide $2 trillion in relief to individuals and businesses that are impacted by the coronavirus public health emergency.
In this video alert, McAfee & Taft employee benefits lawyers Richard Nix, Brandon Long and Judy Burdg discuss the CARES Act’s provisions and requirements for employer-sponsored retirement plans. In a companion video alert, we focus on the impact of the FFCRA and CARES Acts on employer-sponsored health and wellness plans.
