What the Obama Stimulus Plan Means for Employers: COBRA, Benefits, and More



Download whitepapers Known as the "Stimulus Bill," the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) was signed into law by President Obama on February 17, 2009. The $787 billion stimulus package will have a far-reaching affect on the country's economy -- and for every American employer.
