Press Release: HSA Bank Provides Clarity on the 2020 CARES Act and Other Recent Legislative Changes
Milwaukee, May 7, 2020 — HSA Bank, a division of Webster Bank, N.A. announced today it will sponsor a webinar with Human Resource Executive Magazine on the 2020 Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) and other substantial legislative and regulatory changes that are impacting employers and their employees.
The webinar titled "Clarifying the CARES Act and Other Recent Changes" will take place on Wednesday, May 13 at 2:00 p.m. ET, and will feature Kevin Robertson, Chief Revenue Officer at HSA Bank. The webinar is targeted to human resources specialists and benefits professionals who may have questions on how recent changes affect their day-to-day business, and how they administer employee benefits.
The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting global response have drastically altered our lives and our businesses, in both short- and long-term ways. Federal and state governments have instituted stay-at-home orders, passed unprecedented relief measures, including the 2020 CARES Act, and enacted substantial changes with impacts on healthcare and finances. While these changes were designed to help millions of people, they have also created new questions and some confusion, especially for those tasked with administering employee benefits.
"Employers are now expected to navigate fears of COVID-19, economic uncertainty, and radically changed norms in the workplace,” said Kevin Robertson, Chief Revenue Officer of HSA Bank. “We hope the webinar can help employers better understand this environment, so they can make decisions on their employee benefits that best fit their employees’ needs."
The webinar will include a baseline check on how the pandemic is affecting business, details on the legislative and regulatory impacts, and recommendations for employers on moving forward.
