DESCRIPTION

This program is one out of 12 OnDemand programs designed for those who address issues related to employee benefits and executive compensation under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and the federal tax laws, including attorneys in private practice, employee-benefits consultants, compensation managers and consultants, in-house counsel, human-resources personnel and providers of services to plans. This session includes an overview of health and welfare plans, focusing on health care reform and other key legislative initiatives.

A group of highly respected practitioners who are leaders in the field will provide a comprehensive overview of critical ERISA basics you need to know, ranging from the rules governing tax-qualified retirement plans, to fiduciary considerations applicable to plan assets, to design and implementation of programs relating to executive compensation, to the many developments surrounding health-care reform.

This program will provide you with the opportunity to hear about the latest developments in this constantly evolving area of practice.

These courses were originally part of a live event offered in October 2015. The event was co-chaired by Andrew Gaines, Partner at Paul Weiss, and Andrew Oringer, Partner at Dechert LLP. For information on future events on this topic please contact us at ProfessionalLearning@bna.com
