John Hickman and Ashley Gillihan spoke at this seminar hosted by the Institute for Applied Management & Law, Inc. They spoke on "Welfare Benefit Plan Issues" on Thursday, September 18, 8:00am - 4:00pm and on Friday, September 19, 8:00am - 12:00pm.
This 4 1/2 day seminar covered employee benefits issues that arise in the design and administration of employee benefit plans, the management of their assets, controversies between plan sponsors, trustees, participants and the numerous government agencies that regulate these plans. The accelerating changes in the legal environment, coupled with the complex, technical nature of the laws and regulations and increasing governmental scrutiny, make it extremely difficult to keep current in this field.
This seminar provided participants with insights into the many regulations, laws and their requirements, the governmental agencies which administer and enforce those laws, and the litigation and court opinions resulting from the enforcement efforts of these agencies, as well as, private causes of action to enforce the provisions of these laws. The goal of this seminar was to improve the participant's ability to identify and limit risks to their organization in dealing with employee benefit plans and to provide "best practices" insights.
