Wednesday, June 16, 2010 | 4:00pm - 7:30pm | Cobb Galleria Centre
Offering a retirement plan can be one of the most challenging, yet rewarding, decisions an employer can make. The employees participating in the plan, their beneficiaries, and the employer benefit when the retirement plan is in place. Administering a plan and managing its assets, however, require certain actions and involve specific responsibilities.
To meet their responsibilities as plan sponsors employers need to understand some basic rules, Specifically the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) sets standards of conduct for those who manage an employee benefit plan and its assets (called Fiduciaries)
This meeting will provide and overview of the basic fiduciary responsibilities applicable to retirement plans under the law from the perspective of the Department of Labor and its investigators. Additionally it will provide an opportunity for attending plan sponsors to ask and questions and discuss concerns from an experienced panel of Retirement Plan experts from all areas of the field.
