Employee Retention Credit—How to Get an IRS Tax Refund!

The CARES Act and subsequent COVID-19 legislation created and enhanced the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) as a means of incentivizing employers to keep employees on payroll despite operational challenges. As a result, many employers have already claimed millions of dollars in tax credits through the ERC. Those employers that have not yet claimed any ERC may still do so retroactively by filing amended payroll tax returns for tax years 2020 and 2021. This briefing will review the requirements for eligibility and how to quantify the value of the ERC, and address other payroll tax issues for employers to consider before the end of the year.

Marijuana in Missouri: Legalized Recreational Use and Express Employment Protections for Medical Use

On November 8, 2022, voters in Missouri overwhelmingly approved a ballot measure to legalize recreational marijuana, and to amend the existing medical marijuana law to include express employment protections. Specifically, Missouri’s medical marijuana law now prohibits employers from discriminating based on (1) an employee’s status as a qualifying patient or primary caregiver who has a valid identification card or (2) a positive drug test for marijuana components or metabolites of a person who has a valid qualifying patient identification card (with certain exceptions). In this webinar, the speakers will offer key takeaways for Missouri employers, including how to stay compliant with the new law while maintaining a drug-free workplace.
