Managing Benefit Options For Part-Time, Seasonal And Hourly Employees

Webinar: ID# 1023905
Recorded CD
About This Course:
Employers can benefit greatly from the use of part-time, seasonal and hourly employees. However, complying with the Affordable Care Act, the Internal Revenue Code, ERISA, and other federal and state laws as they relate to employee benefits requires a substantial investment of time, money and energy.

The Affordable Care Act in particular is still the law of the land, and likely will be for at least the near-term, making ongoing compliance with the employer mandate imperative.

While the legal landscape has not changed dramatically for qualified retirement plans recently, employers must still navigate their ongoing compliance burdens carefully.

This webinar will cover the current state of federal and state regulation of health and retirement benefits for employees in clear, practical terms that will provide employers the tools they need to avoid compliance problems and consider opportunities in the development and ongoing administration of the benefits they offer employees.
