A working knowledge of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act’s (ERISA) framework is crucial for lawyers, HR practitioners and other professionals in the area of employee benefits and compensation planning. Our experienced faculty of leading practitioners will discuss a broad array of topics, including the basic regulatory framework, the types of plans covered, the requirements for intended tax treatment, fiduciary responsibilities and other issues relating to the investment of plan assets, how to correct errors and the role of the benefits practitioner in the transactional setting. In addition, you will learn about recent IRS, DOL and legislative and judicial developments. The benefits practice also reaches beyond ERISA and the tax laws, and the scope of the seminar will extend to executive compensation and to related laws other than ERISA and the Internal Revenue Code, such as those covering employment discrimination.
