On March 11, 2021, President Biden signed into law the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA). This new COVID relief bill had many important provisions for both individuals and organizations. In the HR realm, it brought changes to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL), and some significant changes to COBRA.

In this new episode of Beyond the Mic, Tamara Hastings, Leah Davis, and Brenna Ramy will focus on how ARPA’s provisions will impact businesses and organizations when it comes to these human resources topics. They discuss what you need to know, what you should be doing, and the conversations you should be having with your organization’s leadership about these changes.
