WEBCAST | Legal Basics: Dual Eligible Older Adults

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Pacific) | HOST: National Center on Law & Elder Rights (NCLER)
FEE: None | REGISTER

Dual eligible individuals are low-income seniors and people with disabilities who are enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid. On average, dual eligibles have more chronic conditions and higher health needs than other Medicare beneficiaries, yet they face barriers to accessing care because of their enrollment in two separate health insurance programs. Almost half of the dual eligible population are people of color, and dual eligibles are more likely to be women. Recent initiatives in a number of states have changed the way that many dual eligibles receive their healthcare.

This Legal Basics webcast will cover the following:

  • Provide an overview of the Medicare and Medicaid programs;
  • Highlight particular characteristics of the dual eligible population;
  • Review the common barriers dual eligibles face in accessing care; and
  • Provide an update on integrated programs that serve dual eligible individuals.

PRESENTERS
Amber Christ, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging
Denny Chan, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging

The webcast will be accompanied by a detailed Chapter Summary with additional information.

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

NOTE: This training will be presented in a WEBCAST format to accommodate more participants. Due to the high volume of participants, computer audio will be the only option to listen to the presentation. No telephone call-in number will be provided. Please plan accordingly. Thank you.

WEBINAR | Independent Contractor ABCs: California’s New Test for Classifying Workers

2:30 PM - 4:00 PM (Pacific) | HOST: California Association for Adult Day Services (CAADS)
FEE: CAADS Members $25; Non-members $149 | REGISTRATION FORM: Fill-In :: Write-On
FULL NOTICE

WHAT WE’LL COVER
The California Supreme Court’s recent decision in Dynamex Operations West v. Lee is a major turning point for businesses in the state that classify some of their workers as “independent contractors.” The April 2018, Supreme Court ruling in Dynamex states that a worker is presumed to be an employee under California’s wage orders unless the business proves three conditions are met (A, B, and C). As a result, businesses now have the burden of proving all three elements when hiring and/or employing an independent contractor.

Many CBAS centers in California rely on independent contractors for various reasons. However, the test for establishing independent contractor status has now become more stringent than ever. Accidental or intentional misclassification of employees as independent contractors can now result in some very serious consequences. According to California’s Labor Code, employers can face up to $25,000 for each “willful misclassification,” and/or jail time, and/or Federal and State tax penalties up to 40% of the underreported wages. This webinar will go through the changes in the law, and discuss how to apply the new test.

After completing the webinar you will:

  1. Know why the employee classification wage orders matter, and learn about the penalties for contractor misclassification
  2. Understand the “ABC” test, and apply it to your current “contractor” arrangements
  3. Determine your risks and options for compliance

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Center leaders and staff

WEBINAR | Access to Public Benefits for Older Immigrants

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Pacific) | HOST: National Center on Law & Elder Rights (NCLER)
FEE: None | REGISTER

Older adults who are immigrants face unique challenges accessing public benefits. Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, SNAP, and housing assistance each have their own set of eligibility rules and restrictions based on a person’s citizenship or immigration status, work history, and sometimes length of residency.

This webinar will provide a basic overview of eligibility for public benefits for older immigrants. We will use hypothetical situations to illustrate how a person’s immigration status and work history affect their eligibility and provide practice tips and resources to use to help your clients access health care and other benefits.

Presenters:

  • Tracey Gronniger, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging
  • Natalie Kean, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging

The webcast will be accompanied by a detailed Chapter Summary with additional information.

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

NOTE: This training will be presented in a WEBCAST format to accommodate more participants. Due to the high volume of participants, computer audio will be the only option to listen to the presentation. No telephone call-in number will be provided. Please plan accordingly. Thank you.

WEBINAR | When the Guardian is an Abuser

11:00 AM(Pacific) | HOST: National Center on Law & Elder Rights (NCLER)
FEE: None | REGISTER

Courts name guardians to protect adults from abuse, neglect, or exploitation; however, in some circumstances, guardians are perpetrators of such actions. Guardians wield immense power over adults in their care. More information is needed on the extent and consequences of abuse by guardians. However, recent media reports, as well as reports by the Senate Special Committee on Aging and the Government Accountability Office (GAO), and Background Briefs by the National Center for State Courts, highlight egregious cases in which guardians have taken advantage of their positions. What can an advocate do when a guardian becomes an abuser?

In this webcast, we will cover the following on abuse, neglect, and/or exploitation by family or nonprofessional and professional guardians:

  • Case examples
  • Detection
  • Reporting
  • Court response and intervention
  • Finding systemic solutions

This webcast is part of the National Center on Law and Elder Rights (NCLER) Elder Justice Toolkit, and builds on previous Toolkit webcasts, including Elder Abuse: Mandatory and Permissive Reporting For Lawyers and Signs of Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation.

Presenters:

  • Dari Pogach, Staff Attorney, American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging
  • Erica Wood, Assistant Director, American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging
  • Jim Berchtold, Attorney, Consumer Rights Project, Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada

Closed captioning will be available on this webinar. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webinar start time.
