Kiplinger reports on employment, COBRA and privacy

One of the confusing issues associated with all of the government’s involvement in the economic recovery is the new and adjusted regulations, especially with regard to human resources.  A perfect example of this is changes that affect the health care insurance provision for severed employees, COBRA. Be sure to check with an HR professional to make sure you’re keeping up.  Compliance with all of these issues is one reason many small business owners outsource their payroll functions and, sometimes, all HR functions. 

Recently on The Small Business Advocate Show, Kiplinger Washington Editors‘ Senior Editor, Joan Pryde, joined me to report on employment growth prospects, changes in the COBRA laws and the tension between our nations balancing national security with privacy issues. Joan is a long-time member of my Brain Trust and has been reporting on the Kiplinger Letter with me since 1999. Take a few minutes to listen to what Joan has to say and, as always, leave your own thoughts. Listen Live! Download, Too!
