Who Should Attend

Staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions industry owners, legal professionals, human resource professionals, principals, chief executive officers and presidents, team managers and leaders, industry professionals, and employers


States are actively legislating in several areas affecting employee benefits and employer-sponsored retirement and health insurance plans. As a result, employers and human resource professionals are being called upon to understand and navigate a patchwork of legal obligations with respect to benefits that can vary state to state. This regulatory environment is particularly challenging for employers with operations or employees in multiple states.

In this webinar, Miller & Chevalier attorneys Joanne Roskey and Dawn Murphy-Johnson will explain what has been happening at the state level in the areas of state-facilitated retirement programs, post-Dobbs abortion-services coverage, paid family medical and sick leave, and they’ll discuss the legal implications of these laws for employers and employees.

During this webinar, attendees will learn

  • What state legislatures are up to in the areas of state-facilitated retirement programs, access to and coverage of abortion services, and paid family medical and sick leave
  • How state laws affect employee benefits and employer sponsors and administrators of employee benefit plans
  • How to determine which laws apply to their business and their employee benefit offerings
