In the October 16, 2020 edition of the Midlands Business Journal, Fraser Stryker attorney Emily Langdon was quoted in an article entitled “Employee benefits are changing in light of COVID-19 impacts”, by Gabby Christensen. Langdon discusses certain 2021 employee benefits strategies that employers may be rethinking. “Given employers have already been forced to react to COVID-19 and comply with related legal and compliance mandates, employers now have the opportunity to be proactive when establishing and revising 2021 employee benefits, such as health care benefits, crisis leave policies, COVID-19 policies, and employee assistance programs.” says Langdon.
Langdon also addresses the need for employers to review and evaluate from a general health care plan perspective, in order to remain competitive: “Communication between employers and employees is key. Employers need to help employees navigate their employee benefits programs, especially new programs.”
