ERISA Essentials for Lawyers, Employers and HR Professionals

Duration: 90 Minutes
Under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (ERISA), and the continued guidance on and court interpretations of ERISA, plan sponsors must navigate a myriad of rules and regulations to confirm that their employee benefit plans are compliant under Federal law. As ERISA impacts both retirement and health plans, the new rules and guidance are far-reaching. Non-employee benefit lawyers, employers, and HR professionals must be familiar with ERISA so that they may spot certain compliance issues related to their clients’ or their own employee benefit plans.
