New law on use of criminal conviction record in employment decisions

April 19th, 2021|

Governor Pritzker signed Public Act 101-0656 into law last week. This law limits the ability of employers to use an applicant or employee’s criminal conviction record as a basis for an adverse employment decision. The law requires employers to first consider whether the conviction bears a substantial relationship to the employment position or whether employing the person would pose a substantial risk. If the employer makes a preliminary decision that the conviction is disqualifying, the employer must provide the individual with notice and an opportunity to provide further information before making a final decision. Jane May of OKGC has prepared a memo for distribution to ICRMT members which explains the law. You can download the memo by clicking here. Please reach out to your risk management consultant with questions.

New COBRA notices – premium subsidies

April 19th, 2021|

The American Rescue Plan Act made some changes with respect to COBRA. Certain individuals who are or would have been eligible for COBRA between 4/1/21 and 9/30/21 must be provided notice of premium subsidies that are available for this six-month period. Individuals who are eligible for the premium assistance will not have to pay the COBRA premium between 4/1/21 and 9/30/21. The employer must pay the premium, but then can take a credit for it on its Medicare payroll taxes. Please review the links below and reach out to your risk management consultant with any questions.
