How to Manage a Compliant Health Benefit Plan: DOL Audits & Your Fiduciary Duties as Plan Manager
The Department of Labor knows that 75-90 percent of ERISA covered employers are not in compliance with requirements of the ACA. As part of the Health Benefits Security Project, the DOL intends to perform audits on those employers by the end of 2018. DOL audits are stressful, disruptive, and negatively affect your company’s bottom line.
ERISA compliance experts from Bim Group and Sturgill Turner are joining forces to present a 4-part seminar series to teach you “How to Manage a Compliant Employee Health Benefit Plan.” We want you to be fully informed and strategically positioned in the event of a DOL audit.
Please join us for the kick-off event, where Deanna Johnson and Sarah Charles Wright will cover:
- ERISA: What is it and who is impacted?
- DOL ERISA Audits: What triggers an audit? How can you minimize your risk of being audited, or worse, being penalized for non-compliance?
- Fiduciary Duties: What are your fiduciary responsibilities as your company’s health benefit plan administrator? What happens if those duties are breached?
