Your Practical Guide for Surviving a DOL Welfare Benefit Plan Audit
Following an Update on the ACA and Final Regulations for NY Paid Family Leave
Join us for a webinar on Aug 04, 2017 at 9:00 AM EDT.
The final regulations for the NY Paid Family Leave program were adopted on July 10 and published last week in the State Register. While not much was changed in this final ruling, the Workers Compensation Board did provide clarification on items such as: the coverage of out-of-state employees, what time is counted towards eligibility and benefit calculations. These changes will be highlighted at the start of our presentation, and will serve as a primer to our complete Paid Family Leave webinar scheduled for September 15.
Our featured topic will provide guidance on how an employer can prepare for a U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) welfare benefit plan audit. These types of audits have been on the rise over the last couple of years, finding even the most cautious of employers as targets. Most private sector employee benefit plans are subject to ERISA – regardless of a plan’s size, number of employees or the fact that plans are self-funded or fully-insured. Therefore, it is imperative that organizations be in compliance with ERISA laws to effectively administer benefit plans for their employees, and remain prepared to successfully navigate a DOL Welfare Benefit Plan Audit. We will provide valuable insight as to the notification process, what documents will be requested and a review of required disclosure items to help employers eliminate unnecessary, time-consuming, and expensive penalties.
