Andrew Douglass to Speak at ISBA Employee Benefits Section Webcast

“Post-Windsor: What’s Next For Employee Benefit Plan Administration?”



10:30-11:30 a.m. CT

Andrew Douglass, a partner in Seyfarth’s Employee Benefits Department, will be the program speaker at the ISBA Employee Benefits Section webcast on “Post-Windsor: What’s Next For Employee Benefit Plan Administration?”

Join us for this in-depth look at how the employee benefits landscape has been altered by the Supreme Court’s Windsor decision, which requires recognition of lawful same-sex marriages under federal laws, including those laws that impact the administration of employee benefit plans. Attorneys with practice experience working with employee benefit plans and/or advising employers on plan compliance issues who attend this online seminar will better understand:

  • How the Supreme Court’s decision to overrule a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) impacted employee benefit plans;
  • How the IRS, DOL, and other enforcement agencies are addressing these changes in written guidance so far (and whether additional guidance is expected in the future); and
  • How employers and other plan sponsors should update their plan documents and administrative procedures.
