IRS Releases Individual Coverage Health Reimbursement Arrangements

Effective January 1, 2020, employers who do not offer group medical coverage will be able to fund “a new kind of health reimbursement arrangement” (HRA), which will be known as an individual coverage HRA (ICHRA).

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) reports that “using an individual coverage HRA, employers will be able to provide their workers and their workers’ families with tax-preferred funds pay all or a portion of the cost of coverage that workers purchase on the individual market”.

SHRM further notes that businesses of all sizes are permitted to offer traditional group-health plans or ICHRAs, “but may not offer employees a choice between the two”.

As War for Talent Continues, Employers Turn to Inaccurate Job Postings to Lure Workers. Spoiler Alert: It’s Not Working.

A recent survey conducted by job board ZipRecruiter has found that 58 percent of American job seekers “have applied for a position based on an inaccurate description”.

The USA Today further reports that in a job market with more open positions than candidates to fill them, companies are overselling roles by inflating titles or failing to mention the full scope of the position.

The survey results do indicate that these methods are backfiring, as 30 percent of those surveyed reported “leaving a job within the first 90 days, with nearly half saying the day-to-day role was not what they expected”.
