A 2020 Vision for ERISA and Employee Benefits Legal Compliance

Program Number
Program Date

Over the past 24 months, Hall Benefits Laws team has abated more than $60 million in DOL and IRS penalties for its plan sponsor clients in 27 states. ACA enforcement is not waning as many expected under the Trump administration. On the retirement plan side, the SECURE Act just passed, fiduciary breach lawsuits remain a reality, and the plaintiffs bar has taken the fiduciary battle into the health and welfare benefits arena. Counsel for plan sponsors large and small should be taking a more proactive approach to employee benefits legal compliance, but the HBL team spends the majority of its time putting out legal compliance fires. Attorneys will share cautionary tales, describe their boots on the ground perspective on employee benefits legal compliance, and offer a prospective view of what corporate counsel and the employers they represent can expect over the coming year, highlighting throughout the importance of a proactive approach to employee benefits legal compliance as well as the creative solutions the team can implement for those wishing to be more proactive.
