6/17/20 There are two main types of scams. In one scam, a company will charge to enroll you in a benefit you could have accessed for free, such as a federal income-driven repayment plan. In another scam, you’re promised something too good to be true — like forgiveness — in exchange for payment.

EMPLOYMENT - Maintaining effective U.S. labor standards enforcement through the coronavirus recession
9/3/20 Evidence from the Great Recession of 2007—2009 indicates that high levels of unemployment weaken the labor market power of those low-wage workers who remain employed. Minimum wage violations increased dramatically during the Great Recession, disproportionately impacting Latinx, Black, and female workers. We anticipate the coronavirus recession will result in increased violations, yet as high unemployment adds to workers’ desperation to maintain any job, the likelihood that low-wage workers will file complaints with an enforcement agency will decrease.

MENTAL HEALTH - How to Create Pandemic-Proof Grief Support at Work
Workplaces have long struggled to address grief and death, even before the COVID-19 pandemic.
