WHEN:  Tuesday, April 12th 2022         TIME: 2:00PM EST



As the Russia-Ukraine war intensifies, American businesses will likely all be affected by the increasing humanitarian crisis and financial implications. Businesses in the U.S. are facing unfamiliar challenges as the ripple effects of the crisis spread across the world. Is your company prepared for these potential challenges? This webinar will help you answer these important questions.

  • Is your company prepared for the increased risk of a cyberattack?
  • Are you addressing the mental health impact on employees and their families?
  • What is the impact of HIPAA protections?
  • What are the limitations of international benefits and business travel accident coverage during a time of war?
  • Does your leave policy adequately address employees’ need for leave to assist their families due to the crisis in Ukraine?
  • Are you prepared for the new employment issues that might arise?

This 60-minute intermediate-level webinar will help employers understand the issues arising from the Russia-Ukraine war and help them respond to this overseas crisis at home.
