The New Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021: What HR Pros Must Know

The New Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021: What HR Pros Must Know

On December 27, 2020, the President signed H.R. 133, the "Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021". This omnibus law includes the much anticipated and long-awaited COVID Relief Bill, with many of the new provisions taking effect immediately. Weighing in at a "mere" 5,593 pages, the new law renews or extends most of the tax relief programs available to employers under both the FFCRA and the CARES Act. The renewed Paycheck Protection Program, funded with $284.45 billion in new federal spending, is expected to see new lending the week of January 11, 2021, with a number of changes in response to prior program criticisms. Join us at this webinar to review the many provisions of CAA'21 which will impact Human Capital Management.

What you will learn

  • FFCRA provisions revived: Emergency Paid Sick Leave and Extended Paid FML
  • The "New and Improved" Paycheck Protection Program
  • Employee Retention Tax Credits Extended and Revised
  • The Expected Impact of New Surprise Medical Billing Provisions
  • Miscellaneous Provision Renewals and Reinstatements (Tuition, FSA Rules, WOTC)
  • Impacts on Human Capital Management Capabilities
