Law Office Climate Challenge Partner

Boardman Clark has joined a growing number of “green” law offices in Wisconsin and nationwide by being named a Law Office Climate Challenge Partner by the American Bar Association (“ABA”). Climate Challenge Partners participate in the ABA’s climate challenge program, which is run jointly by the ABA and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), by developing and implementing policies designed to promote environmental and energy stewardship.

Boardman Clark’s participation in the ABA-EPA climate challenge program is part of a broader sustainability initiative which the firm implemented effective January 1, 2009. The initiative requires Boardman Clark attorneys, paralegals and office personnel to undertake paper reduction “best practices,” ranging from use of double-sided printing and copying to paperless filing and electronic mail management.

In addition, as part of its ongoing sustainability initiative, the Boardman Clark firm has taken steps to cut down on offsite record storage and undertaken a technology audit to find ways of utilizing new technology to further promote energy efficiency.

School Districts Be Aware: Subsidized COBRA Coverage Now Available to Certain Individuals

School Law FYI | 04.12.21

The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 places several new obligations on group health plan sponsors, which in many situations are employers, with respect to federal COBRA and state health insurance continuation laws. The most important change is that certain individuals are now eligible to enroll in continuation coverage and have their continuation coverage premiums 100% subsidized by the plan sponsor. The plan sponsor is then eligible for tax credits from the federal government to recoup the cost of this subsidy.
