Legislation enacted over the past few years, including the 2010 health care reform law, has placed increased focus on ERISA welfare plan compliance. As a result, many employers are struggling to stay on top of their welfare plan documentation. As employers take this opportunity to update the documentation and restructure their welfare plans, it is vital to understand which plans are subject to ERISA, which are not, and what documentation and reporting requirements apply. 

Please join Seyfarth Shaw on Wednesday, May 18th for a discussion on the issues involved in determining whether your plans are subject to ERISA requirements and the steps you should take to ensure compliance.   

Topics Include:  

  • What makes an arrangement subject to ERISA and why
  • Plan documentation requirements: common mistakes and misperceptions
  • How those requirements apply to health and other welfare programs
  • What to avoid when structuring welfare plans and preparing disclosures
  • Consequences of not properly identifying and documenting an ERISA Plan
