About this Event

This two-day Employee Benefits Law Update provides a thorough update that analyzes up-to-the-minute issues and developments along with their real-world impact and the impact of recent changes, directives, and regulations. As a result of new developments and court decisions; intensified scrutiny by enforcement agencies; dramatic increases in benefits-related litigation; and severe liabilities for missteps, the information presented in these seminars is as timely as it is critical.

  • Learn the critical employee benefits issues facing U.S. employers in these dramatically changing times.
  • Discover what issues the agencies are auditing and how best to prepare your team for in-depth scrutiny.
  • Learn how to assess the viability of new benefit offerings (onsite clinics, telehealth, and account-based plans) and whether they make sense for your organization.

The seminar has been approved for 13 aPHR, PHR, SPHR, GPHR, SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification credit hours.

This seminar has been approved for California and Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education credit for 13 CLE hours. Contact IAML to determine if your state has approved this seminar for MCLE credit.

SEMINAR CONTENT

Washington Update: What's New? Recent Guidance and Current Employee Benefit Projects

Qualified Plans

  • Identifying Plan Errors and Developing Solutions to the Errors
  • Implementation of Best Practices - Corporate Governance Standards in Employee Plan Administration
  • Employee Plan Fiduciaries: Why You are One, What Your Duties Are, What Your Liability is
  • Trimming Your Employee Plan Administration Expense Budget - What Expenses Can You Charge to Your Plan?
  • Cost Effective Management of Your Plan's Service Providers: Getting the Services You Pay For and are Entitled to Receive
  • Implementation of an Employee Plan Compliance Calendar

Identifying Plan Errors and Developing Solutions to the Errors: Focus on both IRS and Department of Labor guidance that addresses correcting plan errors including a case study analysis of the voluntary compliance programs that both the IRS and DOL administer. An analysis of the multiple types of correction methods as well as the venue appropriate for the particular error will be analyzed.

IRS DOL Audits: How to Manage: Focus on the practical and legal aspects of managing an audit by either the DOL or the IRS. Included in this discussion will be specific areas the DOL is currently concerned with.

Plan Administrators: Enhancing Communication and Avoiding Pitfalls: Focus on various administrative functions with respect to qualified plans including a detailed discussion of electronic plan administration guidance and other recent developments.

When the Auditors Come Knocking:  Top 10 Health Plan Traps to Avoid: The last year has seen a significant increase in agency audit activity with the DOL and Office of Civil Rights (OCR) leading the way. This session will help you identify and avoid the top 10 exposure items we see in DOL agency investigations under the ACA, the Mental Health Parity Act (MHPAEA), wellness programs and ERISA. We will also focus on increased OCR investigations related to data breach (including the rise of email hacking incidents) under HIPAA.

Health Care Reform Compliance Boot Camp: Now that the dust has settled, what plan changes and compliance risks exist, and how can exposure be limited? Latest update on Affordable Care Act (ACA) rules and regulations. Compliance initiatives for play or pay and avoiding the so-called "Cadillac" tax.

Defined Contribution Healthcare in a Post-ACA World: Private Exchange Compliance Issues and Opportunities : Now that the agencies have issued new HRA regulations significantly expanding employer options, many employers are looking for ways to fix their health care contribution obligation while continuing to offer an array of valuable coverage options to employees. What tax and benefits compliance issues arise? Can employers offer health coverage through individual policies? What are the advantages and disadvantages of a fully insured versus a self-funded exchange? Will a private exchange arrangement satisfy the ACA requirements (including the employer "pay or play:" obligation)? This session focuses on the compliance aspects of private exchange arrangements with an emphasis on what can be done today, and what legislative or regulatory changes must be made to fully realize the benefits of a defined contribution approach.

Deja-vu all over again: The Brave New World of Onsite Clinics: What compliance issues and traps arise in connection with onsite clinics.  Potential impact on HSAs and health care reform implications.

HIPAA Compliance and Big Data Breach:  How to Limit Your Exposure: We all know the rules (we think) but what do you do when a data breach occurs.  Walk through real-life data breaches and resolution.

Wellness Programs and Disease Management - Overcoming Legal Compliance Hurdles: As the popularity of wellness, disease management and health risk assessment programs continue to grow, many employers have overlooked the many legal compliance issues that may arise in connection with a successful program. Hidden compliance costs associated with the "carrots" and "sticks" need to be considered. Also, are "mandatory" participation requirements allowed? What about smoker rate differentials? Attendees of this session will be able to identify and avoid potential compliance traps under the new ACA wellness regulations, under HIPAA's non-discrimination and privacy requirements, the Americans with Disabilities Act and COBRA.
