Why Should You Attend:

Every employer that sponsors a health or retirement plan is subject to ERISA requirements. It is critical that employers understand the required standard of conduct in order to reduce potential liabilities not only for themselves but for the executives who oversee and the HR personnel who frequently administer health and retirement plans. A failure to comply with ERISA fiduciary requirements can result in personal liability, an obligation to restore losses suffered by a plan, the forfeiture of plan benefits, an obligation to restore profits made through the use of plan assets and other statutory penalties. Therefore, it is critical that employers help protect plan fiduciaries from liability by helping them understand and properly discharge their fiduciary duties.

This webinar will help attendees understand how the fiduciary responsibility provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) apply to their retirement and health plans. It will also help them understand their fiduciary responsibilities including the need to carefully select and monitor service providers, the importance of making contributions on time, how to provide appropriate disclosures to plan participants and how to avoid prohibited transactions.

  • Identifying plan fiduciaries
