It’s vital for employers to more fully understand their roles and responsibilities when it comes to supporting their employee caregivers. As the caregiving crisis in America continues to grow, companies need to consider more deliberately their own compliance with state, local, and federal laws.

Torchlight, the only digitally-powered and human supported, modern caregiver employee benefit for the full age continuum, announced today that Carolyn Romano, attorney and vice president of Product at Torchlight, will be a featured speaker at the New England Employee Benefits Council (NEEBC) and the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans (IFEBP) joint webinar on caregiving and compliance on Thursday, October 18, 2018.

During the webinar, attendees will hear how their company's understanding of and compliance with family discrimination laws affect their employees with modern caregiving responsibilities. They will also learn the latest information about employee caregivers and local, state and federal employment discrimination laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the Family and Medical Leave Act.

This webinar is designed for attendees who want to:
●    Support the caregivers in their workforce to be productive, loyal, and engaged employees
●    Understand unlawful caregiver stereotyping based on association
●    Assess their internal policies and procedures for necessary “employee-caregiver compliance”
●    Protect their company from gender-based complaints by both males and females

Romano explained why this topic is critical for employers, “It’s vital for employers to more fully understand their roles and responsibilities when it comes to supporting their employee caregivers. As the caregiving crisis in America continues to grow, companies need to consider more deliberately their own compliance with state, local, and federal laws – both old and new – as they relate to the caregiving status of each of their employees. My co-presenter, Attorney Jeff Rosin, intend that this webinar will further that understanding.”

WHAT:                 The Intersection of Caregiving and Compliance – What Every HR Professional Needs to Know
WHEN:                     Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 3 p.m. EDT.
